*Please, no using 'adolescent' terms like "friend zone".
Most Helpful Girl
I actually prefer to be friends with a guy first. I find that I'm able to get to know someone better if we're just getting to know each other as friends and I don't have to worry about the physical stuff. Plus, I'm just not really comfortable even kissing someone unless I know them, at least if I'm talking to them with the intent of having a relationship with them. With the last guy I dated (only four dates, barely counts haha) I just kept thinking "I don't know him well enough to want to kiss him. I know facts about him, but I haven't actually had time to figure out if I like who he is as a person".
I dunno, I tend to overthink things, so maybe that's my problem. But ideally I'd like to be friends first. That's why when I hear guys go on about the "friendzone" I get so frustrated, because maybe some girls just want to move slower and get to know you first, and here you are complaining because you're worried that you won't get laid.1
