14 Signs That You're Stuck In The Friend Zone

The "friend zone" is the last place any guy wants to be. You've lusted after this girl for SO long, but somewhere down the road you took a wrong turn and ended up in the friend zone. It's so easy to fall into, but incredibly hard to get out of! Are you unsure about where your relationship with your crush stands? Here's 15 signs that you're stuck in the friend zone.

14. You joke about going out on a date with her.

You say stuff like: "Haha you and me baby. One day it's gonna happen." You like to pretend you're on a date with her when you guys are just doing "friend" stuff, like getting lunch or going to the movies.


13. You do stuff for her that REALLY her boyfriend should be doing.

You drive her home from work even though it's WAY out of your way. You pick her and her friends up at 4am and drive them home when she's drunk. You do tonnes of unrequited favours for her like doing her college assignments or walking her dog.



12. She asks your opinion on clothes she's buying.

She takes you shopping and asks you your opinion on the clothes she buys. After all, she's not wearing them to try and impress you. There's always someone else and you're in a space of denial about it.


11. She doesn't bother looking nice for you.

She will happily come over to your house to watch a movie wearing sweatpants, no makeup and her hair tied up in a greasy, scrunchy bun.



10. She gets dressed in the same room as you.

She will treat you almost like a gay best friend. She will undress in front of you without so much as batting an eyelid.


9. There's no flirting or physical attraction between you.

The pair of you don't flirt with one another, but if you do, she just laughs about it and takes it as a joke. You're so desperate for her love and attention.



8. You talk to her on the phone everyday.

You're her "best guy friend". You get all the aspects of a relationship without the sex.You drop everything you're doing when she calls. You listen to her dump all her problems on you day after day. You're her shoulder to cry on but she doesn't see you as anything more.


7. She introduces you to everyone as her "friend."

She introduces you to her girls as her "friend." It's like a powerhouse strike to the gut. You smile weakly and put on a happy face, while thinking: "One day."



6. You buy her ridiculous presents for her birthday.

You spend BIG money on her like buy 2 tickets to the next One Direction concert. You are devastated when she takes her boyfriend with her. REJECTED! Her presents are never as good as yours. But, let's face it, you go way over the top with her gifts. Even her boyfriend's gifts don't live up to yours.


5. She talks to you about other guys.

She talks to you intimately about other guys she likes and asks you for your opinion on how to get their attention.



4. Her boyfriend doesn't see you as a threat.

Her boyfriend doesn't care that you spend so much time together. He used to think that you were gay. He doesn't see you as any threat to his relationship.


3. You've never plucked up the courage to make a move.

You've never actually summoned the courage to tell her how you really feel or asked her out. You've thought about it over and over, made plans and promised yourself you would tell her. But you've bottled it every time.



2. You get a friendly cheek peck and think you're in with her.

You get a friendly hug or peck on the cheek and you feel like you're on top of the world. You misread every friendly action as a sign of her affection. She slightly leads you on. She tells you "I don't want to risk what we have" or "I couldn't lose you as a friend."


1. You have a serious case of blue balls.

Finally, you've diverted all your attention to her and not even looked at another girl. You can't even remember the last time you had sex. You have the WORST case of blue balls a man has ever witnessed!
