We've all been stuck inside the friend zone at least one time. And every time it happens, it's like...being trapped in quicksand. Pleasurable torture. Craving something sweet while having your teeth worked on. But it happens so often. Why does it happen? After talking with one of my best friends about the subject, I've come to a conclusion. There is no antidote and there is no escape. Even worse, there's no changing it. I mean, do you know anyone who was put in the friend zone, only to be taken out later? Me neither.
"That's the rough thing about the friend zone. You get in it and it's impossible to get out of."
So what happens if you're one of those girls who is considered to be one of the dudes? They all see you as a friend. And what if you become genuinely attracted to one of them? Because they enjoyed your company already as only a friend there's no way you can go beyond that point?
"If you meet someone and show interest in them right away you don't get put in the friend zone."
Ohh, okay. Not gonna lie, that makes sense. But I'm the kind of person who doesn't have any interest whatsoever until I get to know someone on a slightly deeper level. That's right. I want to know that we can pal around, have fun, tell each other random things and be stupid together before I even realize that I've fallen for you. So unless I put out the vibe to everyone, right away.... okay, that sounds like a terrible idea.
"It requires flirting which you don't wanna do."
So what do you think? Can you avoid the friend zone before it hits you, or can you get out if you've already been put in it? I want to hear your story!
