Friendzone

What is the friendzone?

A relationship where a person's love interest thinks of him as just a friend

Friendzone is the relationship area where one person is attracted to the other person but he or she thinks of the other as just a friend. The zone is where a lot of romantic pursuits stall out and die.

The friendzone is a common problem for many "nice" guys and girls that are so nice they are thought of friends by their baes instead of love interests. The friendzone does have a silver lining since it is not as bad as the brotherzone, which is pretty much impossible to escape.

Example

"Hey man, you better make your move on Alyssa before you get put in the friendzone."
