Many Women believe it is because a Man feels a sense of entitlement. As a Man I don't believe it has anything to do with entitlement, I believe that there are different reasons for a Man not liking the rejection for a few reasons. Such as;
1) a Man feels humiliated when put in the Friend zone which could be because He was teased and ridiculed by His classmates in school or perhaps the first Girl He asked out rejected Him in a harsh manner by calling Him gross or a loser and this memory scarred Him mentally.
2) Society's warped expectations of men meaning the opinion of a Man who does not have a Woman who looks like a supermodel hanging all over Him in public is a loser.
3) When a Man is Friend Zoned in His Mind it means He is not worthy.
There is a right way and a wrong way for women to do this:
The Right Way
Woman tactfully tells the guy she’s not romantically interested very shortly after she comes to that decision. She doesn’t ask him to “be friends” but rather can we “be friendly”. There is a difference. This is the respectful way to handle it.
Often women are curious but lose interest after interacting with a guy. That’s unfortunate however the guy stuck is his neck out. She needs to respect him and (tactfully) tell him the truth in truth. Some women get this but a lot don’t. But men crave respect and if a man feels respected when he is being rejected he will take it much better. He will be disappointed but not angry at her. He might not thank her but be thankful.
The Wrong (and more common) Way
The woman loved the attention. If she’s a real cunt she take advantage of all his free meals, favors, effort, etc. She feels entitled to it.
She will never speak up but will instead play dumb. She will claim “she doesn’t want to make him angry” but in reality that’s a bullshit excuse for not wanting the attention/favors to go away.
In some worst case scenarios she will complain or ask for advice about guys she really likes. She might even purposely keep him around to keep the guy she really likes jealous.
Again this is all based on entitlement. Deep down she doesn’t give rats ass about the guy she “claims” to be a friend. Could care less.
Ladies many of you don’t even realize how much damage you can do in scenario 2. That crap leads to misogyny. Yes their are douche bag guys out there but doesn’t give you an excuse to be a douche yourself.
Again not all women are like this but way too many are.
