The Friend Zone

So I've been a little too chirpy the past few days (what with the Friends post and all), so it was only a matter of time before the Universe came to bite me in the ass. What's the story? Well, I've had a bit of crush on this one girl. So like any other normal person, I decided to get to know her a little better. You know, facebook, texting, the occasional phone call, even had lunch together. Turns out my plan of getting to know her worked a little too well. We're good friends now. Yayy! *bangs his head on the table*

I'm just gonna come out and say this. The Friend Zone sucks. There is not one good thing about the friend zone. Now if any of those idiots come up to me and say stuff like 'at least you've got a friend', well I'd tell them to stuff their heads down the you know what, and shove their advice up the you know where. I have enough friends. What I don't have is a girlfriend.

Ladies, I'll let you in on a secret. There is no guy on the face of this earth who likes hearing the words 'Our friendship is too important to me', or 'I think of you as my closest friend/older brother' from the girl he likes. You might think you're easing the blow, but we all know that it's simply code for 'I'm not attracted to you/I don't wanna date you/You're ugly but I'm too polite to say so.' And the worst part is, once you're in, you can never get out. There is no exit, you're doomed to stay there forever. Its even worse than the Phantom Zone in Superman (because you know, General Zod got out).

On a more personal note, I have finally realised that in the immortal words of Joey, I'm 'mayor of the friend zone'. Happens every single time. Yes, I do realise I'm doing something wrong, but not a single soul has been able to tell me what. And no, watching 'When Harry Met Sally' does not help. But hey, Ross did get out of the friend zone, so maybe there's still hope for me. But on the other hand, my failure rate has been an astounding 100%.
Damn, where's the alcohol when you need it.


  1. Interesting. I have never been in the friends zone, well, you know, not technically :P But yeah, tricky place to be. And the problem is, we don't want to look to eager either, you know. Unless, it is the problem you stated above :P

    Good luck though. Perseverance helps. And if you're a nice guy, you'll get there. Coz the bad guys have the initial fun, but the nice guys have the last laugh.

    And the girl. ;)

  2. I hv never been in the friends zone with a guy, ever! I think you should be obvious about your affection and let the girl set the pace. Easing from friendship to relationship is not possible, dude.

    Give her some signs before she lean on you to help her with some other guy!

  3. You've gotta tell the girl! That's the best way to put things straight and clear - giving no room for assumptions et al.

    Just tell her! Who knows..she's probably waiting for you to ask her out ;)
