Post Reply Does the friend-zone exist?

It does, because for no other reason than it is kind of awkward to have for example a longtime close male friend come on to you, and it can spoil your friendship if the date doesn't work out. Not that it cannot work out. It's just risky and why there is such a common thing as friendzones.

The 'friend-zone' is so dumb. Like I mean, yes, sometimes you will end up not being able to go any further than a friendship with someone you like, but just the fact that a term was made for this (adding with the context of its usage) is just... I don't know how to say it.

I'll just say... If being friends with someone you claim to 'love' is the worst thing in your mind, you're not in love. You don't even know what love is. I treasure any friendship I can have with the people I get the closest to.

of course it exists! I myself have three levels (or "zones") of friendship. Think of them as a tier or circles within circles. The inner most tier is the zone that is closest to me while the outermost tier are people who I see on a somewhat semi daily basis.

I'd say, yes you can be set "back" to being friends, but people are blowing this thing up. You can't force someone to like you. Use the energy you put into the relationship into growing it further and deeper, but not in the direction of love partners. (been there, done that, many times)

I do not believe in the friend zone/ bro zone as a zone but more of a rejection strategy. The way I see it is that these adjectives are used by individuals to reject the person that is trying to court them. Instead of telling the person that they do not want anything to do with them romantically, they apply the friend zone strategy. For everyone out there that gets this strategy applied to them, it would be better to embrace the fact that you have a friend but that it will lead nowhere romantically.

I think this way because I have seen first-hand longtime friends become romantically involved.
