The Truth about the “FRIEND ZONE”

Posted on Apr 15 2015 - 8:57pm by Allie Heart

The “Friend Zone,” that place that all men hate and try to avoid when interacting with any woman they are attracted to. For those of you who don’t know what this is, the Friend Zone is what guys call the place that girls put them in when they reject them for dates because they are only interested in those guys “as friends.” You are lucky if you have never heard about this because then you wouldn’t have dealt with that nonsense. In reality, men use this term to make us look like the bad guy because we didn’t accept their courtesy the way they wanted us to. But can you blame us? Here are my two cents on the matter: what is incredible is the fact is that those who believe in the Friend Zone get so upset because they think that since they were “too nice,” that is the reason girls aren’t interested in them. News Flash: you’re supposed to be nice to everyone! Which is why girls act friendly (emphasis on “friend”) towards you, to reciprocate. Last time I checked, friendliness doesn’t equal flirtation, so how would anyone know that you are romantically interested in them?

This brings up another thing that I can’t stand. I really hate it when someone says they are interested in another because they are getting a “vibe” and then when they take the chance to ask that person out, they are furious when rejected and claim they have just entered the Friend Zone. Since when does it mean that someone is interested in you just because they are nice to you and give you some attention? Is it so hard to believe that many would enjoy making new friends, even if they are the opposite sex?

I don’t think it is fair to be angered by a girl’s lack of interest in you. Just think about all the girls that you consider friends, then you could understand how people could not have romantic feelings for someone they see as friends.

If you are interested in someone, but they only see you as a friend, the best thing for both of you is to maintain a friendship. That way you’ll both enjoy each other in your lives. And who knows, maybe love will come.
