That’s not what the article is saying.
He's saying the friend zone is real. It isn't. There is no avoiding something that isn't real.
Have you read the article? Where did he describe the friend zone in that way?
He's saying the friend zone is something you fall into if you don't try hard enough.The friend zone is a dangerous concept. Sure, he may be saying "if you want a partner, ask them out, or they'll just be your friend", but the very idea that the friend zone is something you could fall into, that it can be avoided, whatever, is not good.Basically, don't try and make the friend zone a thing. Let it die. It's a dangerous concept.So I do not agree with the article, as it implies that there's a zone you could fall into when someone just wants to be friends with you. If they like you romantically, they'll pursue you too. If you try, and they just want to be friends, let that be.I'm not saying you are guilty of any of this, I'm just disagreeing with an article that says it's real and that it can be escaped.
But would you agree that if a guy doesn’t show obvious interest for a girl he likes by asking her out, it’s perfectly possible and reasonable for her to lose interest? I think that’s what the article is getting at.
I totally agree with that. But he shouldn't use "friend zone". The fact he calls it that makes me immediately disagree.
Well that’s a matter of wording and language.
Many guys seem to like women over time as he gets closer to them though. But by that time she’s lost interest if she had it.
When you say that it means that he didn't like her at first, and now likes her. If she isn't interested at that point, then she just isn't.If she lost interest it's because he didn't like her when she liked him, so she looked elsewhere, as she knew he wasn't into her.
And this happens a lot.
