I used to be friendzoned when I was younger. As I got older I learned to be more straight up about what I want. I occassionally get romantic with girls but when I don't get completey ignored. Part of me is proud of myself for "maning up more" and avoiding the friend zone. However to be completely honest I do get quite lonely at times.
Thoughts on what's worse?
- Rather be friend zonedVote A
- Rather be ignoredVote B

I would rather be ignored. The Friend Zone is the Hurt Zone in my experience. Your friendship will in almost all cases only last as long as she is single. Meaning it wasn't true friendship anyway, just a relationship of convenience.
And of course the fact that you will always be left secretly (or not so secretly) wishing for more. Some people claim to be content in the friend-zone but I believe this has more to do with them putting their own interests last, instead of first. Ultimately it rarely benefits you.1
