This one is for the homies who accept that they are just homies. Before I begin this let me just tell you all that a guy I personally friend-zoned told me to write about this topic.
What is the "friend-zone"? A place that boys or girls go when the person they are into, are just not into them, yet they want to stay friends. We all just want some friends, dude. Do girls even get friend-zoned? The answer is: most likely no. I mean yeah, sometimes a guy isn't feeling it with us, but then you usually just stop talking. Friend-zoning a guy, in my opinion, is basically just saying, "yo, I love you like I love a puppy. You're cute, cuddly and nice to talk to, but I'm not trying to hook up with a dog". Bad example? Probably.
I'm assuming that guys wonder why we friend-zone. I'm here to tell you all the truth. *This applies to both boys and girls, ya know.* Sometimes, we just aren't fully attracted to someone, but maybe he/she's personality is bomb as hell. Why would we want to completely cut someone off just because we don't want to hook up with someone? That logic just doesn't make sense to me and I'm sure many other people.
If you had a good friend for a super long time, and all of a sudden they decide to spill their hearts, guts, and feelings out about you- you're going to want to vomit if you don't feel the same way. We all hate hurting people's feelings, and of course, you don't want to ruin a nice long friendship. So, just like that, the friend-zone comes out. You politely put back this friend right back where they should always remain for now (maybe your feelings will change). I'm not trying to be mean, this is just the honest truth that no-one really wants to say.
If a guy can't accept the friend-zone, then he doesn't really deserve any zone. The fun-zone, the hungry-zone, love-zone, there's a whole lot of zones out there. Once a guy realizes he's in the "friend-zone", sometimes an automatic asshole personality emerges. Why? Because you weren't into him. Let's all take rejection like a champ and eat some ice cream if you are really that hurt.
I know the friend-zone is probably a rough time. Would you really rather lose a friend because they don't want to step the friendship up a notch? Most people I assume would say no. It's always nice to tell someone how you feel, I mean maybe he/she feels the same way and you end up getting married, having 4 little kid nuggets running around, and living in Canada. Who knows what could happen. Sometimes we just have to accept that the friend-zone is a real concept, and the love of your life is somewhere out there...but for the moment maybe your relationship is only with ice cream. If ice cream is your lover, then that's not such a bad way to live.
