The Friend Zone
So you’ve met a great girl at a bar, and you spend the whole night talking to her. You’ve got a million things in common and she seems totally into you! You ask her if she wants to hang out the next night. She does! After a great dinner, you go in for the kiss, and she pulls away. She says she “just got out of a relationship” but “wants to be friends.” BOOM.
The Friend Zone. A dark and labyrinth-like cave, it is hard to navigate and almost impossible to get out.
Here are some lines that probably mean you’ve been FriendZoned:
“I just don’t want to ruin our friendship”
“I’m not really looking for a relationship right now.”
“You’re like a brother to me!”
All of these lines are basically fatal, and there is pretty much no chance you are ever going to sleep with this girl. The truth is, once you’ve been FriendZoned, the only way you can get back into “boyfriend material” category is to stop seeing her for a while. Perhaps after a couple months, she’ll see something different in you.
Also, you need to be forward with her. Women tend to see friendship, not a relationship, with men who are wishy-washy or a little too nice. Be firm about your intentions with her and let her know you have enough friends.
These tips may seem harsh, but being in the Friend Zone requires the same treatment as a band-aid. You’ve got to rip it off quick or it’ll stick forever, getting dingy and seriously unattractive.
