What is the friendzone?

When someone just wants to be friends

A person who is in the friendzone is attracted to someone who thinks of them as just a friend. This zone is where many romantic pursuits stall out and die.

Getting friendzoned is a common problem for many "nice" people who are so nice that their baes think of them primarily as BFFs. However, the friendzone is not as bad as the brotherzone, which is nearly impossible to escape.


Hey man, you better make your move on Alyssa before you get put in the friendzone
And you may never get out
And you may never get out
