The short answer is a clear and undisputed no. As already explained in the response by UmH, this is because even looking at non-mahram women is not allowed.
Beyond even the obvious evidence of the subject, I will show you a hadith narrated of the Prophet (SAW) regarding a very similar situation as yours:
Allah's Messenger (SAW) said: Beware of getting, into the houses and meeting women. A person from the Ansar said: Allah's Messenger, what about husband's brother, whereupon he (ﷺ) said: Husband's brother is like death. (Sahih Muslim)
One of the companions asks this, because he was under the impression that brother-in-laws are somehow special with their relation to women. After all, one could logically argue, they have familial pressure and are much closer to each other. The Prophet (SAW) dispels this myth and clarifies that (even) the brother-in-law is in fact a terrible source of sin.
Compare this to your situation, where you are not even a brother-in-law. If even the brother-in-law (i.e. the closest non-blood male relative to a woman) is death, what is a family friend?
