A collection of studies show that about 44% of 'just friends'- relationships, are cursed with some form of attraction either way. Just 2% of women actually HOPE their frienship will lead to something more - the same number for men is more than 5 times higher, at 11%. Men rate their female friend 10-11% higher on the attractiveness-scale, and more so when they are younger. Over 50% say that their friend probably is attractive to others. Men overrate their friend's attraction towards them. Women do the opposite.
