First off before I get on topic: I am going to start posting threads like these every so often about interesting and often mentioned topics and create a thread for discussion about them. In these I will have some food for thought videos which will include videos each with different point of views on the topic and then an application video which isn't on the topic specifically but can be applied to the topic. I will also post a couple links similar to this of articles on this. I will start the thread out with some topic questions and then also end it with similar topic questions for discussion over the topic.
Now onto the actual thread.
Let's talk about friend zones, why do you think people are "Friend Zones"? Do you think it actually exists? Or do you think that the whole idea of it is just a work of the person who is friend zoned own mind?
Also do you think it's possible to, "Leave the friend zone" or do you think once you are in there is absolutely no way out.
So again, what are your opinions on the friend zone and how it works and how you would 'escape it'? And also feel free to share and discuss any experiences with it, as well as opinions again because again that's the point of these types of threads I am making.
It is possible to get out of a friendzone, but thats entirely on the part of the person doing the friending, and obviously the friend zoned person needs to meet the criteria of boyfirned/girlfriend material and not just friend material. Sometimes this because obvious, other times it just never happens.
The only way to escape it if the other person is just not interested that way is to find someone else really. Sitting there, hoping for a chance, tends to come off a little bit pathetic.
For the record: I've been friends with benefits zoned...and then i got a bf and now he's the one being friend (no benefits) zoned. We're like on one giant seesaw.
I once exited it. It felt like I was right in everything in my life. Now, I just keep my distance. Not letting myself be exploited in any friggin' way. It also feels relieving to say what you think and not be nice when you don't want to be nice.
It definitely exists and there is no escape. If you really try and escape it then the friendship as a whole dissipates. You have to find that perfect time early on to ask them out. Not too early as you're a total stranger but before you really hang out and become a friend.
Well, if the lady isn't getting the message, you are obviously not being enough of a douche, anyway.
also, being foreward =/= being a douche. Some women just need the strong hint. its also totally possible to escape th friendzone with a friendship intact if you manage to find someone else who you care for even more.
