Thats good but as the video showed, even if the women does not develop feelings the man might still do so.

Then he'd better learn how to control his feelings!

I also recently made friends with an atheist, she would tell me that she hated catholic people and would rather be friends with Muslims instead of them. One time we were even talking about the New Zealand shooting and was even criticising the media who didn’t label the killer as a terrorist. 

So yeah it really depends on your levels of faith. Islam doesn’t forbid us to be friends with non Muslims.

Lol it seems people here either don't know what being a "friend" entails, or they are seriously cool in investing themselves into an individual who is openly against the God which they worship.

But I mean it's ok I suppose, afterall food is good with Muwaiya (l.a) while prayer is good with Ali ibn Abi Talib ((عليه السلام)).

The main problem in this discussion is that you guys seem to compare atheism with lack of morals or beliefs or principles or integrity, or all of them. By thr same rule of thumb, Shias should be decent people, and honestly, I only respect a few from all the ones I've known in my life.

Religious identity, nowaday, means almost nothing when it comes to judging a person as a valuable decent human being and good friend.

To lose a friend merely because he identifies as an atheist is one of the greatest mistakes one could do, to be honest. I did so, I lost good friends who could still and should still be part of my life, because I thought that would be the best choice islamically speaking. I left that fundamentalist stubborness in the past because it brings nothing but stupidity and unhappiness to your life, and if it at least made any sense, spiritually speaking, I wouldn't regret it. But it's worth nothing. If you have got a good friend, and that friend is a good person and brings good things to your life, keep it close. No need to talk or discuss about the Hereafter and if God exists or not. Mostly because these questions, if you seriously think about them, mean nothing. What really matters is who is God, what are His names. It's in His names where principles and morality matter, and where we can actually find things in common with atheists who, not believing in God, may believe in His names.

don’t blame a man for being a man, thats how God created us. If it wasnt for those "feelings" humanity would not survive.

Have you heard the story of the frog and the scorpion?

If it happens you will only have yourself to blame.

The fact that we r created with feelings doesn't mean that we can fall with everyone ! So I can blame my lover ! He could control his emotions

Surah Al-Kahf

28 “And keep yourself content with those who call unto their Lord morning and evening seeking His pleasure, and let not your eyes turn away from them desiring the adornment of the life of the world, and do not obey him whose heart We have made neglectful of Our remembrance and he follows his own low desires, and his affair has become all excess.”
