It’s a vicious circle, the friend zone. Boy meets girl, boy doesn’t tell girl feelings, girl finds boy who falls in love with her, boy is left alone. I can’t count how many times this story has happened to good friends, friends of friends, and everyone in between. If you’ve found someone who you think might end your dating search, then don’t mess it up by getting stuck in the friend zone!
If you can’t figure out why you’re always getting stuck with the dreaded ‘friend’ title, then let’s see if this list rings any bells:
- You meet a the girl of your dreams. She’s smart, she’s funny, she’s extremely pretty, and she somehow manages to make you feel shy, regardless of how outgoing you really are. In the first few days of knowing her, you totally over analyze if she’d like you or not, which leads to you being too scared to asking her out.
- You decide it’s better to play it safe than sorry, so you continue not to say anything, and all the time the two of you spend together leads to the two of you being good friends. Instead of wanting to take off your clothes, she wants to take you out shopping.
- You keep your feelings for her under wraps, since now that the two of you are such good friends, you don’t want to risk ruining the friendship by saying anything about your crush on her.
- After months of movie dates, her complaining about her boyfriends, and platonic sleepovers, you finally realize: You, my pal, are in the friend zone.
Dating is hard enough, but when you’re stuck in the friend zone with the girl you’re dating? Not much could be worse than that. Tomorrow we’re going to take a look at the 5 best ways to get rid of your ‘friend’ title. Until then, have fun listening to her complain about her bad date from last night!
