What would you guys recommend as the rules for opposite-gender interactions in Islam? I'm trying to find my way - but it's a bit difficult when all I can find online is people blasting you for so much as having non-mahrams on facebook.
Alhamdulillah I don't date or whatever - but I do have male acquaintances from my old school who I am in contact with and am still friendly with. At my new school I do have conversations with the boys when we are in group situations - again, I do have boys who are considered 'friends', although we are not intimate at all.
Are there any actual scholars opinions on this, other than the standard "mixing/talking is haram"? I feel like it's hard - I mean for example we talk in a friendly manner with one another on this forum?
