What exactly is the friend zone..??

Cupid answers: Friendzone is that category where the other person gets all the benefits of the relationship they want from you and you get nothing.

According to the dictionary:

The situation in which a friendship exists between two people, one of whom has an unreciprocated romantic or sexual interest in the other person but gets no response.

Men tend to end up more in the friend zone because they approach dating with being the best friend angle. They also make the most common mistakes in dating, which drop them straight into the friend zone.

Here are the top 30 signs you have entered the dreaded friend-zone.

Symptoms and signs of being friend-zoned:

1) Caller-Boy not in a good way

She calls you up whenever she is bored or on late nights to talk to you. You are her back up plan for all occasions. Her crush is the main dish and your side dish. Your her entertainment she calls up when she has nothing else to do. An obvious sign you have been friend-zoned.

2)Late Night Chat Friend

She chats with you at night when she is not feeling sleepy or is bored. The late-night never-ending chats. Similar to the call boy point, you are nothing but a time pass entertainment toy to her. If this is happening with you, my friend, then you are clearly in the friend zone.


3) The Half boyfriend

She invites you for shopping and other places for dates just like a boyfriend but calls you a best friend instead. You do all the things girls like to do, but there are no romantic interactions, especially there are no physical interactions such as kissing. Congratulations you have become the president of the friend zone.


4)Caring friend signs

She sympathizes with you often and tries to be a good listening friend. She will not do anything other than listening. This is the key point. A clear sign that your just a friend nothing more.

5) No Touchy Feely

She touches you regularly and even hugs you, BUT she will never kiss you, nor will she sleep with you and let you get physical. No make-out sessions. Getting touched is not a big achievement. Guys don`t misunderstand friendly touching for attraction. Romantic touching is very different. She will never let you go if she liked you.


6) Halt thy advance

Every time you try to touch her or make an advance towards her, she moves back, avoids you for a couple of days and then comes back. The classic cold shoulder to put you in place. This is a warning that you tried to exit the friend zone, but you are not allowed.

Having pet names and overly friendly pics without any romance is friendzone buddy. Best examples are those weird dog selfies and cutesy stuff. Girls want entertainment and drama, and you are her daily source. Welcome to the cutesy weird friendzone


9)Wrong adjectives used

You are called cute, silly, and shy instead of manly dashing and handsome. This, my friend, is the biggest sign of getting the one-way friendzone ticket. You’re a gentleman with class. Not a cute puppy. Show her that. Unless you show her the traits of a real gentleman, you will be forever friend-zoned.


10) You’re her cupid

She tells you about other guys she likes and asks you for advice. This is the next level of a wingman. She wants the love advice so that she can get laid while your digging your own grave.

She brings other people while going out when it should be only the two of you. This is a clear sign she is not interested in you. If she were interested in you, she would try to be alone with you. Three people together is never a date. This means you have been tricked into the friend zone.

12) Overly Casual

She appears overly casual in front of you. Yes, guys, this is a terrible sign, not a good sign. A girl will try her best to look amazing in front of you. She will try her best to be a classy lady.

Her family and friends know you as her best friend. Family is acceptable, but if even her friends don`t tease you telling you that you are perfect couples than there is a big problem.

Your her supporter and her shoulder in times of need. This is bad if the only thing you are to her is a supporter and nothing else. Unless you’re already dating you being her everyday supporter is a bad thing. Girls want to share their feeling and emotions. It’s not a sign of attraction. Being a constant supporter is a shortcut to friendzone.

17) Never-ending Favours

You always end up doing favors for her. Your nothing short of being her slave. This is bad, learn to say no. Reject her. You have your own life. Your life has a higher priority. Once you show her your manly side, you will automatically start exiting the friend zone. This is especially true with hot girls. They are used to having plenty of slaves (nice guys) best guy friends. But when she sees a man who is not swayed by her beauty, she becomes interested in you.
