It only exist when you want it to exist. From what I've seen people use the term friendzone as a way to deal with rejection. When we are rejected by someone who we like, we try to find reasons for the rejection. Since some people are too prideful to admit that they simply aren't sexually/romantically attractive in the eyes of the person who rejected them, they then go on to make up some abstract excuses like " Oh! I'm in the friend zone"
I have rejected about 6 girls in life, and out of the 6, 4 of them were friends. Not once did I sit down and say "I'm going to put her in the friendzone". I rejected them, because I simply was never attracted to them in a romantic way. I wasn't attracted to them before we were friends and I wasn't attracted to them after we became friends.
