As i said in the question, why do you think it's a real thing? it's not... it's a thing created by pop-culture but if someone only thinks of you as a friend there is NOTHING you or anyone can do about it, it is what it is, if someone like you they will definitely let you know about it because eventually they will initiate something just like you are doing now because you like them so... i don't get how anyone can believe this... it's confusing everything. Worst part is it makes people act really aggresively and horrible to you when they can't get their own way and "fix" the so called "problem", you can't... you really just can't... they just... don't... like you lol.

There's absolutely no such thing as a friend zone. If someone liked ya, they would be with you and certainly wouldn't use you being there as a friend to NOT be with you. It goes against all logic and makes no sense. If she/she wanted you in that way, they'd make you their bf or gf.3
