Do girls have the same pressure to make their feelings know before they get "friend zoned," or can they take their time being friends without worrying about missing their chance and being seen as "his sister?"
I pretty much only hear guys complain about it.

Well, we live in a world where men are taught to pursue women they like, even if they say no at first, because she can be won over eventually if you're nice enough to her.
Women, faced with an onslaught of advances from a guy they just don't like, can either 1) be an asshole and tell him off 2) be nice and humor him but be very non-sexual/romantic about it.
Men take that as the friend zone. Its not a zone, its a woman rejecting you nicely and you being too thick skulled to deal with it.
Women aren't friendzoned, because they normally don't repeatedly waste their time trying to woo a guy who isn't interested. If women were to start doing that, then yes they would begin to feel friend zoned in some situations as well.2

A guy who I am friends with 10 years. The first year or so I had a crush on him but now don't see him as such because I came to terms with the fact he didn't have the same feelings. It sucked but better to have closure and move on than being hung up on the same guy who has no interest in me.0
