There is no such thing as the friend zone.


That said, her feet are horrifying.

So naturally I had to Google that shiat.  They're rough, but it's probably from years of wearing heels.  Also, she's Uma Thurman, so even if she didn't have feet, that wouldn't be a dealbreaker.  Hell, she could look like a hobbit from the knees down and it wouldn't matter.

Isn't it weird that you can tell that much about a man from his movies?  That he's had a crush on this woman for decades? (and her feet)

How in the ever-loving-fark do you think that's going to work out?

Yes there is.  It's what a guy lands himself in when he puts out friend vibes to a woman he's attracted to instead of boyfriend vibes.  It's entirely self-inflicted and due to a warped sense of how such relationships work.

Well, luckily, the third link that always types ahead in Google for any moderately attractive female celebrity is always name + "feet".

One time, I told this chick who had me in the Friend Zone that I wanted her.

She started crying, and I never talked to her again.

Good riddance, I guess.

I think there's also a case for women who like to gather male friends who make them feel attractive.  If you see a woman who has 'friend-zoned' a guy, you'll usually also find several other male friends of hers around who were also friend-zoned.

Uhm, no.
You interested in a woman? Stop doing nice shiat and expecting her to read your mind that you have developed feelings for her. Man up and tell her and ask her out. If she says no, hey you tried! EXPECTING a woman to f*ck you because you're nice or chivalrous or whatever else, is bonkers. Calling it a friendzone because she won't f*ck you is delusional.

1) doesn't have the stones to make the move he wants to make or 2) doesn't just cut the relationship off when she rejects his advance.

Reading the headline, I went in with odds of 90% for Tarantino and 10% for Joss Whedon - with odds for Whedon so low mostly because I think he's married.

LlamaGirl: EXPECTING a woman to f*ck you because you're nice or chivalrous or whatever else, is bonkers. Calling it a friendzone because she won't f*ck you is delusional.


that right thar.

It happens when one has unrequited feelings for the other but doesn't break it off and continues to expose themself to the object of their affection even though it's not reciprocal. One wants more, the other doesn't, neither breaks it off.

It's not all about sex, you know. There are people who are in it for love first and the physical second. The amount of people who feign niceness in order to be "owed" anything in return is far, far smaller than people would have you believe.

But, hey, remaining rational about this subject isn't nearly as much fun or as satisfying as calling people assholes over the internet, right? It's so much better to try to disingenuously say that the lowest common denominator is representative of the whole.

Here, a longer rant from a few days ago that I don't feel like copying and pasting.

Sometimes it's a guy and a girl who are friends, one party wants to be 'more than friends' and the other doesn't.

That doesn't mean you should stop being friends.  That would only come into play if the 'friend-zoned' party can't handle being just friends after that point.

I think the point is if you are in the situation where you are the person attracted to the other person you 1. cannot be mad at them for not dating you if you haven't expressed the interest in dating, and 2. you have to be willing to accept the rejection from that type of relationship if they won't date you.  If you can't handle 2, don't be friends with them.

I agree.

The friendzone as a term only exists to massage egos and allow men to blame women for their lack of communication.

It's often used as a verb: "she friendzoned me."

If you're romantically interested in someone but too passive and entitled to not communicate it and instead masquerade as a friend it's not the woman's fault for being your friend and thinking it is platonic.

She is not "friendzoning" you, she is being a normal human being with the information she has been given.


We are better off without that term.  Throw it in the dustbin with "fake geek girl."  They only exist so lame men can't accept responsibility.

Precisely! It's all about communication. Sitting and pining away will get a person nowhere but stuck in that "friendzone".

Back in reality, typically it  is communicated and rebuffed.

It's then the decision if you want to remain friends or not.

Sometimes you'd rather keep a long-term friendship with somebody you have feelings for than burn it to the ground because the two of you have different levels of affection for one another.

Sometimes you don't.

That's not being friend zoned. That's a friend being honest with his/her feelings. Friendzoning is bad because it lays blame on someone for a situation where they shouldnt receive blame.

Unfortunately, yeah.

Twice I've grown feeling for someone after being friends for a while. Twice I've communicated that. Twice it wasn't reciprocal. Twice I've said my piece and walked away. I lost 2 friends and got hurt twice (neither rejection was kind). Shiat happens. You becomes jaded. You try again in the future. Hopefully one day something changes.

There's no way that I'd slowly torture myself by staying around a particular her in the hopes that she changes her mind. I don't need that in my life.

The reason people find themselves in a situation they blame on "the friendzone" is because they are precisely afraid of what you experienced: rejection and hurt.   But as you said, shiat happens.  You're doing things the right way.


Too many people let fear get the better of them and do nothing.  That's fine I guess.  What isn't fine is blaming your torment on some imaginary "zone" that a woman "put" you in.

It's all about who is misrepresenting themselves and miscommunicating.

If two people agree that a relationship is only for sex, not for romance, good on them.

If one of them is lying and secretly hoping it will evolve into a romantic relationship, it is not the other person's fault, the secret hoper shouldn't have gotten involved.

Likewise if one of them was vague or unclear about how the relationship was going to pan out while the other communicated a progressive more romantic relationship; If the vague one declares "its only physical" later, they're an asshole.


Communication.  Consent.  They're sexy.  Use them.

When did the word "friend" become a pejorative?  A lot of people like having friends.  Or is it the fact that you are friends with a mere woman that you find humiliating?  Do you dump this much crap on your male acquaintances who won't sleep with you?

I was with you all the way to this part. Fake Geek Girls have existed for at least as long as horn-rimmed glasses have been available with plain lenses, and probably before that. I knew a FGG in high school who even put unnecessary tape on her unnecessary glasses, to further geek them up.

False.

About 5 years ago I was randomly contacted by someone I hadn't seen in eons. A girl, a very attractive girl, who remembered me from middle school of all places. We chatted online, and I asked her out. Made it more than known that not only was I attracted to her, but our personalities had become extremely compatible despite the enormous length of time since we had interacted.

It was very much communicated up front what my intentions were, I even referred to us meeting up as a date, etc, etc. 

End of the night rolls around? "I honestly can only think of you as a friend. I don't know why, it's not that I'm not attracted to you, I am. Maybe it's just how we reconnected, or something. I'm not sure. But I don't think I'll ever think of you as anything more than a friend." 

I'm not saying this applies to all situations. But the friendzone very much exists. It is a thing, and there are instances where escape is nearly impossible. Some people, and I've seen women be friendzoned by men this is not a one wayed deal, just setup these mental barriers in relation to other people. And to try and act like this doesn't exist is absolutely silly. Sometimes it has to do with a lack of communication, but there are a great number of instances where that isn't the problem.
