Does she wish all guys could be like you? Do you like all her posts on social media? Does she love you, like a brother? If you answered yes to any of those questions, you sir are in the friendzone.
Let’s be honest, at one point or another we have all been in the friendzone. The person that we are interested in is not interested in us, except as a friend.
So here are a few tips to avoid the zone of terror.
- Be upfront about your intentions, don’t try and wheedle your way in as a friend, that’s a first class ticket to the friendzone.
- learn to recognise the signs, shopping is definitely a friend activity, going for cocktails to bitch about men is another one.
- Learn when to cut your losses, if not for your sake then for everyone else’s. None of your friends want to hear about how “special” and “meaningful” your new friendship is, no one believes it, not even you do. If it isn’t going the way you want it to you owe it to yourself to get out. it isn’t worth the pain and heartache. Seriously let go.
I hope this little guide helps, but lets face it there is no reasoning with someone in the friendzone, because infatuation defies all reason. But if you do take the leap and are smacked back into the friendzone, do not under any circumstances become a bitch about it, do not think you are owed anything just because you were nice. Behaving the way in which you are meant to is not a guarantee of VIP access to someone’s genitalia, its a social convention, not a seduction technique. Don’t be a fuckboy.
