All this talk about the friend zone, has got me thinking… what is it really? It’s the place that mostly women send men into that they don’t want to pursue any kind of romantic or sexual relationship with. Wait a minute, doesn’t that just mean that she isn’t into him that way? Why is it called the friend zone?
I hear men complain about women friend zoning them, or trying to, supposedly. But what are they really doing? They just aren’t pursuing them romantically? Is this just another way of saying rejection?
They also seem to think that women have some kind of timing window, where a man must make his romantic interest known within a certain amount of time within first meeting her, otherwise if he waits too long…he’ll lose any opportunity forever, thus going into the dreaded friend zone, where he wants to date her, but she doesn’t and instead wants to remain friendly.
Why is this called anything other than, “Sorry, she doesn’t want to sleep with you, get over it and move on…?”
This has been happening since the beginning of time. But all of a sudden, this concept has a name. A name that people who are interested use against those who aren’t.
The friend zone….is it even really a thing?
And if it is, what came first, the friend zone or the boy who cried friend zone?
