7 Men Reveal What It Was Like To Friend-Zone Women Who Were Crushing On Them
This weekend, a pal of mine received an abrupt friend-zoning speech from a guy who sent her flirty texts for weeks.
Though it appears to be a more common practice for women to let their guy friends down easy, the opposite happens to us ladies plenty, and the feeling is just as disorienting.
Redditor Npbugati asked fellow users,
Guys of Reddit, have you ever friend-zoned a girl that liked you? If so how and/or why did you do it?
The answers below will either soothe your friend-zoned soul and give you the answers you seek or shatter your faith in love and chemistry.
In some cases, they see us as their bros.
Many times, it's a matter of attraction.
There are guys who, luckily, value being up front from the beginning.
The ones who are decent enough to do so allow us to find the right partners.
Some guys, on the other hand, will avoid us altogether.
Hope, it seems, still exists in some cases, long after the friend has been zoned.
Whatever you do, though, men, don't be this guy (although, he's prolly lyin').
The friend-zone might not seem like the optimal place to spend our days, but friends can be better than boyfriends and stay in our lives far longer.
Let the hope of romance with your buddy die. It might be the best decision you ever make.
