Girls do not friend zone guys for the fun of it. There are usually reasons behind her decision making and here are the most common reasons why.

She is Not Attracted To You

It's nothing personal, you just might not be her type. Could be your height, your hygiene, or the way you carry yourself, she just can't expand on your relationship past friends. You don't have to change up your appearance, instead just accept the fact that she is not interested and find someone who like your for being you.

You Don't Have Boyfriend Qualities

She may be attracted to you, but you're lacking in areas that a boyfriend should excel in. Maybe you are not loyal, responsible or mature. These are just a few of the characteristics that boyfriends should have. Somehow you have missed the mark on what she is looking for in a boyfriend.

She Is Not Looking For a Relationship

She may have just gotten out of a relationship or is focusing on herself. Before considering getting into a relationship she needs to prioritize her self-worth so that she can be he best girlfriend possible.You need to respect her space and allow her to come to you when ready.

Her Parents Wouldn't Like You

Parents play a the role in determining who a young girl seeks out to date, especially her father. Her parents want the best for her and will be the toughest critics because they care the most. She is worried about letting them down by bring you into her life. There is something that you are lacking in that is causing her to refrain from pursuing anything further.

She Knows The Relationship Wouldn't Last

Maybe you are non-committed and have a bad track record in relationships so she does not want to attempt to start one with you. She would rather never be our girlfriend than to be an ex that you never want to talk to.

You Have Too Much Baggage

Your past is way too messy for her to deal with.. She knows about all your flaws in past relationships and situationships. You have likely been with a lot of other people, maybe even including her friends. She doesn't want involve herself in potential drama.

No Intellectual Connection

Your conversations always surface level and that is not enough for her. She wants somebody that can teach her something new and connect with her on a deeper level. Boring conversations are insignificant and do not separate you from other people she talks to.

You Are Too Clingy

She is saving herself from the trouble of a clingy and controlling personality. She is a free spirit and does not want to be clocked on wherever she is going. She is also saving you from heartache because she knows you are expecting more of her time than she is willing to give.

You Are Too Much Like A Brother

You both have been friends for too long to transition into anything more. She simply does not see you as more than a friend.

She Is Too Busy

You want a Boss Babe, but she is too busy for you. Her focus is on work, school and whatever she devotes most of her time to. She is not willing to fit you into her schedule because she does not see you as a priority.

Being put in the friend zone is not the end of the world. There is always the potential of getting out of it, but you must first recognize why she chose to put you there in the first place.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons.

I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.
