The friend zone is BS. Someone says "I got stuck in the friend zone" when someone likes them, but not the way the individual wants. It's a pity party for those who only desire romance from someone.
Lol, of course it's real. It's the story of my life. -_-
Well, I'll put it this way, in a friendzone situation, we're not more-than-friends because we're friends, we're not more-than-friends because one of us doesn't feel the same as the other. Which is, in plain english, rejection. No need to dress it up in a fancy name. You can hardly even justify calling it the friend zone, because you are apparently embittered about being just "friends".
Just my take on it. ^,^
You can be friends with someone, you can be interested and you can not. Friendzone is just an excuse people give as to why someone they like doesn't return their feelings. If there do not like you then they are your friend, buddy, mate, comrade and they did not specially put you in the friendzone.
I'm mostly neutral, which isn't an option here. I think it is a thing, but it's actually kinda a whiny name created by people. If you have feelings for someone who doesn't return them, it sucks a lot. But whining about being in the friend-zone is really harmful to the girl/boy/other who 'put you' in the 'friendzone'. How would you feel if someone you valued as a friend only liked you because they wanted to get in your pants? There are obviously variations, and it hurts, I know, but the (cont.)
'friendzone' is mostly used as a term for a guy being butthurt his hot friend doesn't want to sleep with him. Otherwise, it sucks, but in this sense, it's harmful.
I think it is, I have had to much experience in it for it not to be a real thing. :p
Aww, I'm sorry.. That's annoying, lol. Thanks for taking!
No, I don't think that the friend zone is real. I think that it's what we made up to make it justifiable in our heads that someone doesn't reciprocate our feelings. Rejection is a hard thing to deal with.
Yeah, that makes perfect sense actually. And that's so true - that rejection is hard to deal with. Thanks!
Nope. It's a gross term that whiny misogynistic guys use because they think that girls owe them sex just because they're friends. Most guys that claim to be in the "friend zone" are actually in the "ugh, not this creepy guy again" zone.
Because friendship is different than the "friend zone". "Friend zone" means that one person expects something more.
Wow, I never thought about it like that either.. Huh I'm glad I made this lol, I didn't know there could even be so many opinions. Yeah, I can understand how that's a thing. I like how you phrased that haha. I always thought about it the other way sort of, like it's the term for when a guy (or girl) likes someone, but that someone just wants to be their friend. Idk lol
I said no because someone either likes you or they don't... if you're already friends with someone and you ask them out and they say no then you're still their friend. It doesn't put them in a zone.
True, I guess. Never thought like that before, lol. I'm going to have to disagree with you, haha, but I can see where you're coming from and it makes sense. I like that logic too, lol. Thanks for taking!
Of course it does, not every guy and girl in the world are 'more than just friends.' Or LGBT friend zones too? Anyway, the friend zone is almost always better than no zone.
Yeah, that's how I feel too haha. Like I'd rather be considered their friend then not even part of their life, right? Lol. Thanks for taking!!
