    No, it's just people being entitled little *****es cause they can't handle rejection.

    I voted no. If it does exist, it's not a permanent state. I have female friends I wouldn't date because of their personalities or..lack of. These are things that could be changed, such as having more hobbies and interests, being more independent, growing up a bit etc. I've 'escaped' the 'friendzone' many times. Not always intentionally.

    It's funny because you're only in the friendzone when the girl you like doesn't like you back. It's not an issue with other girls who clearly just like them as a friend but if a crush does it then it's friendzone.


    Bit of double standards but it is a real concept and it's a painful place to be in.

    Technically yes. If she/he doesnt like you then you're seen as a friend. Then you become a best friend. Once you're at that stage most people dont want to endanger a really good friendship on a feeling, thus that person is stuck in the friendzone.

    Those dicks that try and get into a girls pants and a knocked back arent in the friendzone theyre in the

    I don't believe it does. You're either attracted to someone or you're not. If you are they're a romantic interest and if you aren't, they're a friend. It's just a way for men to excuse being rejected.

    It's not always a simple case of being attracted to them or not immediately. Attraction can grow/change. And why is it reserved only for men?

    Then you'd go from being a friend to a romantic interest, and vice versa if the attraction went away. It's not reserved only for men, but from what I've seen it's mostly men that complain/joke about it. I rarely see women complain of being "friend zoned".

    this, I dont understand how its a word made up by people that cant handle rejection when it simply describes situations likke the above pretty well.

    I think so, basically a situation when one party wants something more (i.e. a relationship) while the other party would rather just stay friends, & there's nothing wrong with them thinking that. I believe it's more a place of hurt rather than bitterness.
