Let's start by calling out a simple truth about this video. It is a generalization about gender that's aimed at a male perspective. Does this make for a biased take on a concept that's, at its core, rooted in misogyny? Yup.
However, if you happen to be a male in this current situation, this short animated video could prove to be helpful. Oddly enough, it does go out of its way to explain what females should do in order to combat a man having feelings towards them and avoiding this situation altogether.
Although it may be one-sided and a bit simplistic, this video does explain how idealism and optimism in friendships being more than what they are can sometimes lead to catastrophe. Guys, take this as a cautionary tale and try to stay clear of these fatal mistakes.
