    Time for a bit of a discussion. I know many people dispute over its existence.

    So what are your thoughts on the friendzone? Do you think it's real?

    Of course it's real, it's just having friends of the gender you're attracted to.

    You weren't friendzoned, they don't owe you anything, they just don't want to date you.

    Yes in that it does exist but no in that it isn't a magical place women put you. You put yourself there with noob behaviour.

    It's real. But quite often transient, as it is an intolerable space to live in.

    You stupid man.... if they want to be friends but not date then you ARE friendzoned

    As for OP, its complicated... give her too much attention and she wont really be interested/wanting (unless you're very goodlooking... then anything you do... any mistake you make is forgotten after a simple 'thanks' <-- applies for MOST girls)

    You get in the friendzone when 1) you're just not the other persons type (i know some good looking girls who are nice but i am just not interest sexually for no particular reason)

    2)you're not good looking

    3) you're not as good looking as your (both your and her) friends

    4) you come over desperate AF / giving too much attention, just 'push-pull' mentality ... to show you're interested but tease for example... 'you're really cute <3<3<3 ... remind me of my little sister'

    Crap just remembered OP asked a yes/no question

    Its real AF unless you're very good looking

    Fk i wrote a lot of bs

    Just a word made up by those who complain that someone is not giving them "enough" affection. Not heard of anyone who's "happy to be in the friendzone".

    Nothing is real. You're living inside a computer simulation.

    This, and also the friendzone isnt exclusive to guys, girls get friendzoned too. Its funny how people say its not a real thing, if you like someone and they just want to be friends, you've been friendzoned. Don't know why people keep talking about entitlement?..

    It's just something guys who can't get a girl use an excuse.
    Friend Zone basically means you haven't attracted the girl. Not because she 'sees you as a friend'. If someone says that they are trying to spare your feelings because it's a lot less harsh then saying 'I don't find you attractive'.
