From experience, every intelligent girl I know prefers to be friends with a guy first, before considering dating them. These women are educated, can hold a conversation, and know where they'll be in the future.
In contrast, women who prefer translate lust at first sight "love at first sight" tend to be unstable, confused, shallow and insecure. Once they friendzone a guy, there's no going back. Even if the poor fellow was going through a tough time when he first met her.

You don't seem to understand what the concept means.
Your women in the first category might prefer to get to know men before dating them, but many men they would have ruled out nearly immediately.
The friendzone really refers to men who are trying to lay the groundwork for dating without realizing that she has already ruled that out.
I also find your comments surprising given your age since being friends before dating is quite unusual post university. It's far more common to get to know people -while- dating once you're working.3
