The friendzone. It's the deadliest place a man, or woman, could be in. It pretty much means the other person gets all the support they need without you getting what it is you want: a relationship. Most people accept the role, and become that friend in the hopes that something more might happen down the line, which almost never is the case. I also believe this is deceitful.
So why not reverse the situation? You date a girl, and she eventually tells you she just wants be friends. Instead of you playing the friendship role, why not accept what she wants, and let HER play that friendship role. Let HER be that support, etc that she is expecting to get from you, while you go on to date other girls.
In my opinion, this is the better option. Why? Because a few awesome things could happen. A) She might very well become that awesome friend you've always wanted. B) you get to meet her lady friends, which means more romantic opportunities. and C) because she'll end up being the emotional support as a good friend, this, in my opinion, raises the likelyhood that she'll develop feelings down the line. Even if she doesn't, you land yourself a decent, if not good, friend.
I mean, all the girls I've friendzoned, have all ended up chasing me as a romantic partner at some point in our relationship. And of course, the girls who've friendzoned me, have all lost contact. I wonder why that is?
So why not just accept the reality that all she wants is to be friends, and let HER play that role and move on to other prospects?
Of course, it means killing or burying the feelings you have for the other person, but to me its a win-win. You get a good friend out of it, and you get to date other people while she gets to play the role she was so eager to take on.
