What’s the big ole F word that no one wants to hear? The friend zone. Despite common belief that only guys can be put into the friendzone, this is something that happens to us ladies too!
You know when you like someone and they tell you they only see you as a friend? When you finally work up the courage to tell them how you really feel and they respond that they don’t see your relationship as anything more than a friend. It sucks.
People think the friendzone is only exclusive to guys, well you’re wrong. In reality, it’s worse for females. When guys get friendzoned, the chances of him getting out is slim, but not completely impossible. I mean, girls don’t know what they want most of the times. Which is why “what do you want to eat?” is such a hard question. There are too many options! It’s hard to make up our minds about things. Sorry not sorry.
However, when our options are narrowed down it’s easier to make a decision. If you’re in the friendzone, you’re still an option. As bad as that may sound, it’s better than being completely cut off. While it’s hard to make our minds up sometimes, once it’s made up there is no turning back. Who knows, maybe one day she’ll wake up and would want to try it. If you believe in something hard enough, it will come true. Or at least that is what we are told.
The friendzone is so much harder for girls to get out of. Aren’t guys supposed to be easy to sway? I mean, why wouldn’t he say yes to being more than friends? Because you’re asking, as crazy as it sounds.
You can walk up to a guy and say “you’re my boyfriend” and they’ll go along with it. Of course, this is solely based on maturity level and how well he communicates, but they go along with anything. Therefore, the approach is crucial. If you’re too strong, it’ll give them the option to say no. However, if you’re too subtle, it’ll go over their heads.
That all being said, stay single, people suck :).
