I HATE the “friend zone” and not because I am in that situation currently or that I feel bad for those people who are there now. Nope, I hate it because the whole mentality is really wrong and those who use it as a reason to be pissed kind of come of as jerks themselves. I mean let’s think about it, the story goes something like this….
“Maaaaannnn, Alice is totally friendzoning me. I picked her up when her car broke down and since she was having a really bad day I took her out to dinner and I paid! You wanna know what I got at the end of the night when I dropped her off? Nothing, no kiss, no date, nothing. Like, she said thank you and told me how much she appreciated me as a friend, but come on what am I supposed to do with that?”
Yeah…sounds kind of ridiculous doesn’t it? Why should a girl (or guy) be obligated to date you or become sexual with you because you did something nice for them? Isn’t that what being friends is about? Doing things for another person because you care about them without the expectation that you will be compensated. And if you are just doing something for your “friend” in the hope that they will sexually return a favor are you even a real friend in the first place? And since you’re not a real friend, you’re not really being friendzoned now are you?
