What's with all this "Friend Zone" BS? Seriously, if you like a girl, make a move. If she shoots you down, move on and stop wasting your time (and hers). Women like confident men. Have a little self respect and stop acting like a doormat and maybe you will spend less time in this so called 'friend zone'.
Mushion has a point, I has that whole friends zone thing going with the girl I have now, I stepped up and asked her out after I figured there was no real harm in doing so, CMON GUYS, MAN UP, BALL THEM BALLS AND ASK THAT GIRL OUT! YOU CAN DO IT!
lol, she's not my type. I have taken the "plunge" for girls before. Sometimes things go well for a short while and then we go back to being friends, but its never the same, the relationship we had was destroyed in the pursuit of love. Just the same, sometimes the friendship disappears completely, as we can't be around each other knowing what we did. The friend zone is not scary out of fear of being "forever alone" rather it scares many of us because we know that once we're in it the chances of being able to form a relationship beyond friendship with a that person becomes extremely slim. We can always make our intentions clear from the start, for women we know we want to be with from the start, yet sometimes we don't realize how feel until much deeper into the friendship, when we realize we have become a pillar of their world, and to change our role could make things hard on them as well as our selves. Ben, maybe you don't know what love I'm talking about, or maybe you're lucky enough to have found your love without much trouble. Either way, for some of us we search long and hard for someone to truly connect with, yet we don't want to lose friends because of it. The friend zone is more than just some internet meme, it is a real fear, a soul crusher. If i can make a woman so happy just by being her shoulder to cry on, is it really fair for me to destroy that? Is it fair for me to hide, and wait for her to realize how I feel while i wallow over the thought of her in another man's arms? I speak not just from personal experience, but on behalf of all the nice guys out there, who rather be the bed she finds comfort in at night than the arms she falls asleep in.
Jared Byers Women experience the friendzone as well. I've been there myself. But what annoys me most is that people complain about being in the friendzone. You have 3 options there. 1. Stop being friends, 2. tell her! or 3. Suck it up and don't bitch about it.
It's fine if you want to remain friends, more power to you. But if you don't try you never get anywhere.
The "friend zone" as it called is not really a place but a feeling. The love of one's life, the girl that you haven't been able to take your eyes off of since you hit puberty. You've been friends for 6 years and you wonder if there's something more. Yet, since you're the nice guy that you are, you won't ask her out, not out of fear of rejection, but out of fear of losing the friendship you treasure so much.
You as a woman, must not realize this, but you have the power to crush souls in a heartbeat. When a women complains about her love life, how there just aren't any good guys out there and cry's on you're shoulder because ANOTHER asshole broke her heart, and all you want is a chance, just one solitary chance, you know you will never get it. So instead you stay in "the friend zone" just being moderately happy because you're by their side, and the trust you more than anyone.
They may want to hire you if they see you get hired by someone else cause you know what they say, people seem more attractive when they're taken... then again they might just say they're considering hiring you then when you're jobless they'll just say nope again... oh wait what were we talking about again?
