1. You put yourself in there.
Don’t blame your crush why you’re there. You pretty much put yourself in there. You are scared of rejection that she maybe out of your league or risk losing her altogether so you unknowingly chose the path to friendzone.
2. You are too available.
That’s what friends are for. To be ALWAYS there for you whenever you need a shoulder to lean on, a shoulder to cry on… Boo hoo. Get a life. That’s what you do. You are ALWAYS there. You don’t give her time to miss you or look for you.
3. You are too easy.
Whenever they ask you for something, you ALWAYS say yes. You drop everything for your crush, no matter what time it is, or the circumstances, you just say YES. No is not an option. Even maybe is not the answer. You’re scared she’ll ask someone else to do her the favor.
4. You prioritize your crush over everyone else.
You have other friends and family to hang with, but you like to spend most/all of your time with your crush. Your crush will think you have no one else that’s why you’re always hanging with them.
5. You are ALWAYS around.
Give your crush some space to breathe. Wow! Have a life. You’re not a puppy. Stop following them around.
6. You downplay yourself.
Your crush is too busy appreciating other guys around, that she is oblivious to a lovestruck Romeo head over heels with her because you’re too busy pleasing her yet you forgot to love yourself. Up your game! Love yourself, man!
7. You are blind to your surroundings.
Your eyes are dead set on your friend crush that you are blind to others who actually are attracted to you for you but they don’t matter. Wake tf up, handsome! You're one sexy beast!
8. You make yourself one of her girl friends…
Yes, you just earned yourself a spot on her best friends list. Congratulations! Might as well do a gender change and be one of her brides maids at her wedding day. Like fr.
9. You don’t have a life besides her.
Yes you have stuff to do. But most of your daily activities revolve around her. She is not the sun.
10. People always think you’re the gay bestfriend.
Ouch. What’s worse than that?
11. You are their wing man/bridge to THEIR crush.
Seriously? This is just desperate move, man. Hoping if they don’t work out, she’ll crash into your arms crying over him and she’ll realize you are the one. She ain’t gonna love you for this. Have some respect for yourself!
12. You have a hidden agenda.
Yes you like her so much and you want her in bed with you! You might not want to say it but you’re thinking it! You have so much frustration built inside you and the worst part? You don’t know how to tell her! She will never know it till you do.
Sure, you want to be her knight in shining armor. But you can’t be if you don’t show her your true feelings. That you want her all to yourself, not just as a friend but more than that! Let her see you are worth loving not just as the friend who’s always there for her, but a lover who is willing to love her and care for her. Nobody wants a pushover. Be the man that you are. The worst answer is NO. It’s her loss really. Not yours.
Thanks for the time reading, besties.
