The reason I ask this is because many times I've seen girls think a guy is attractive and he talks to them a ton never makes a move etc, and finally if he does the girl says yes and doesn't 'friend zone' him like she may have most other guys by this point (assuming the FZ is a real thing) but I honestly think it's more when a girl doesn't feel attraction for a guy who is otherwise sweet to her, she doesn't want to just say 'I'm not attracted' but feed them the FZ line in a (usually vain) hope to not hurt the guy or make him leave her alone all together. I don't want this taken sexist, but guys tend to be more honest when we turn someone down, nicely saying we are not attracted etc, and girls seem to want to spare us pain. So girls, when you say you just want to be friends, does it honestly mean you weren't interested in the first place?

Sometimes we legit actually really like you as a person but are not romantically interested. Some girls do tend to try to soften the blow by giving the "let's be friends" line, which sucks because it does just end up causing confusion and probably more hurt in the end. I tend to be upfront about it and just straight up say I'm not interested.
One thing guys need to keep in mind, though, when holding it against women for sugarcoating things is that sometimes men who have been rejected can respond in ways that genuinely scare us. Some men actually react violently or aggressively when they are rejected, so a lot of times women are just trying to get out of a confrontation.0

Yeah it's real. Guys who are very nice, calm and boring or who acts like doormat in front of any women are easy victims of friendzone.
A guy is expected to be dominant and decisive in nature. He is expected to lead her. You need to have aggressive as well as passive nature at one and the same time.
A passive nice guy doesn't fits her eligible boyfriend criteria. Not a boyfriend material. Possibly a marriage material which a very young women doesn't want. He shall remain adorable only as friend.1
