Neh, people just make up ideas that they could believe in so that they could blame their lives' problems on something. That's just how humans are.

... And yes, a Roman Catholic just said that.

Yes, but not in the way people think.

Some guys and girls who can't muster up courage to tell someone they like them claim it's the friendzone. No, that's you being chicken.

However, if the person knows you like them but doesn't feel the same, and wants to stay friends, that's Friendzone.

Aka, Jorah Mormont syndrome.

There could be for some people but not others. What I mean is that, while one girl might consider you only a friend, another girl might consider you in a romantic way, while yet another girl may want nothing at all to do with you; you'd have to take the other fish in the sea type of approach to such situations.

And this really can be complicated if a girl has a boyfriend or husband, but wants you to remain around for emotional support, especially in the case where you might have had a crush on her for quite a while but she suddenly gets fixated on a bad guy like it was nothing to it.

I would say not really. Yeah I'm a little bit salty, because love like anything else is an investment. And it will hard for someone in real life to put a marital-type investment in me.

Of course it does. Everyone has done mutual friend-zoning before.

Yeah. Sometimes that's just the way it is for some people. Though I do think there is potential for someone to be able to slip out of the friend zone through various ways. I don't think it's a permanent thing like many say it is. Like "Awhh man you're in the friend zone it's over." Well maybe for some.

For example, some chick might not give a guy a chance and would friend zone him, if she saw he didn't have his shit together in life like having a decent job or something. But if the guy changed himself and improved himself in some way, in this case having a decent job or career. Then maybe that chick would change her mind and give the guy a second chance. This sort of thing can be applied to other stuff too like appearance, hygiene, behaviour, personality, etc. I'm not saying a guy should change himself just for one girl, in order to get out of the friend zone and doing all this shit just for a chance. Or being her little caretaker catering to her every need (which would probably only put you deeper in the friend zone). As that would be very pathetic. It could be something spontaneous is what I mean.

If you've never been there your brain cannot comprehend the sheer horror it represents, and thus the only logical action is to deny it's very existence.

Wish I was still as innocent.

Nah just a high school phenom. People grow up and realize being an adult is understanding people aren't meant for others. You can say you just want to be friends without utilizing the term friendzone. That and the idea itself is filled with holes.

@lukespeedblitz: What's meant to be and what you want are hardly ever the same when it comes to dating. That's why people break up and go on dates with others who have nowhere near the same intentions..

Obviously. If you're a friend to someone, you're in the friendzone.

I think what OP is asking isn't whether or not there is such a thing as a friend zone, but whether are not the friend zone is permanent.

For example, people say "oh, she called you bro, you're in the friend zone. It's over." Isn't it possible for friends to start dating?

Everyone in the world has probably had romantic feelings for someone that weren't reciprocated.

Of course it exists! if the Wicked Witch from the West asked you out on a date...would you say "Yeah sure! the friendzone doesn't exist! I'll obviously date you and marry you and love youuuu!!!" or would you say "Erm...you're an evil witch...we can maybe be friends...or I'll just...walk out the door...yep...see ya!"

Well, in the discussed scenario, there is some type of social attachment in place, I'm assuming; I don't think it's just walking up to someone, asking that person for a night together, and that person saying yes or maybe we should just be friends; usually when I see this take place, it's either because the man is drunk, high, or has a mental illness; but, in a bar or something, I guess it happens, but, I don't think that's the point of a friend zone; in that situation, they either hit it off or not, and, than, you can say the person fell into the friend zone after the romantic encounter, but, here, I think there's been some time where the two have been together and the man figures out that she only considers him a friend.

You're puzzled? If so, nothing can be addressed without detail. But, I don't see anything puzzling. Or, if I need to be more specific to your comment, for a romance or friendship, you would have had to have had some sort of preexisting, mutual and reciprocated social attachment with the Wicked Witch of the West, not her just walking up to you for a sexual encounter, for any questions of a friend zone; if the OP meant something else, my bad, but, that's my idea, when someone mentions a friend zone.

To be in a relationship requires two types of chemistry. Psychological and physical.

You can enjoy an individual's company without being psychologically attracted to them.

I don't think it does because some people want casual no strings attached sex and are attracted to each other but the friendzone means you're seen as attractive to them and they don't want anything other than friendship

What isn't real is the notion that you can't escape the friendzone
