Thanks for MHO :)
I agree certainly from my own experience yes you feel a bit crap someone saying I like you only as a friend but it's not the end of the world. You have that person still as a friend and things could possibly develop.
There's a difference between a friend zone you put yourself in (i. e where you don't state your feelings clearly or where you get shut down but remain friends with hopes things will change) and a friend zone you are forced into (i. e you're being strung along by the crush who uses your feelings to keep you close or the crush has already decided and told you that you're never getting a date). Both situations exist, I've been in all 4 scenarios. In the end it's about how each party treats the "feelings". Both should be clear and cut. If the crush knows the feelings will never disappear they shouldn't ask to remain friends, if the person who has feelings is asked to remain friends they should cut off the crush.
@Hypnos0929 Good answer!
@CassMi "You have that person still as a friend and things could possibly develop." You're being stupid and holding out hope for no good reason! I'd move on! If I was put into the friendzone it would be TOURTUROUS for me! Especially since I'd be hanging out with them as a "friend" but that's it! I want to get married some day and the thought of not having that as a possible with someone I was attracted to and to top it off, just them constantly rejecting me and putting me into that dumb category has to hurt alot! I'd feel rejected and disrespected! I'd feel like I was WASTING MY PRECIOUS TIME with them! They'd have the power to hurt me! They make the rules in the relationship appharently? No thanks!
Thanks for the MHO, darlin!
Doesn't mean what you say is correct! People still HATE being put in the friendzone!

Wow that's good! Hope lines aren't crossed!
Sometimes though they make a decision based on the information they receive. If the other person appears not interested or is scared to show that they are interested then they have no other choice but to put them in the so called friend zone.
Of course if someone finds you ugly you don't have a shot. But there are many who would have a shot but choose to not show that person their intentions thus putting themselves in the friendzone with their lack luster behavior. Many times it does have to do with your behavior, it's not black and white.
It does have if you never show feelings.
What is a petty?
Person. Phone must’ve changed it & I didn’t notice
Actually the person who OWNS the thoughts and the feelings are to "blame"!!!
The Closer !!!
That pretty much sums it up
" The friend zone is actually a pretty good place to be" If you like crumbs! What if you so want to have sex with them and they don't? ! Constant reminder to be their "friend"! You can have the same kind of fun with the same sex, why not try that? !
... Or at least someone you know you weren't clearly not attracted to but they know and are on the same page with things!..
I would rather be rejected and understood then be ambiguous in my intentions!
Lol that's the silliest thing I've ever heard today! Thanks for the laugh! By putting yourself in the friendzone you're wasting time that could have been spent with someone more qualified to receive your love and affection! Especially for those who want a family someday soon!
@SueAnon84 guys don’t usually like me in a romantic way anyway
In a way if you think about it it can be. The person who isn't attracted is the person who owns the thoughts and feelings that they have. But yeah I do see what you are coming from definitely.
Then it's good to leave. Don't waste your time with someone who don't want you like the way you want them to!
Happens all the time!
No, but you do have to cum across every woman you fuck!
Yeah, male suicide rate is five times higher than women's. It just is what it is. When it happens to your son, it'll just be what it is too.
@Bananaman177 uhhhh that was completely out of the blue. And nothing to do with the question
Yeah, those aren't arguments.
@Bananaman177 last time I checked guys don’t kill themselves because they have female friendsI remember you. Your the guy that runs around and goes ballistic over the littlest thing. I see you’re keeping busy still
"There’s no expectation that two people must end up in a relationship." Then lets hope boundaries clearly aren't crossed so that there is no confusion. I had this happen to me. Either way, if one person feels more strongly for the other, someone is bound to get hurt/feel rejected. "Friend zone isn’t even a bad result It just is what it is." To the person who is doing the friendzoning yes maybe? But to the other person, it's disappointment.
I think it's more culture/society based than people realize! ... Growing up, it was trendy to have an interracial relationship where the woman was Asian and the man was white! ... Now it's Mexicans Mexicans and more Mexicans!
Then lets hope that they don't get hurt if it's too painful for the other person to "just be friends"!
