It's so dumb. Besides if you really liked the person you asked out who rejected you, surely you wouldn't think it's bad to be in a zone where you're friends still.

I think word "friendzoned" is stupid. Its just this person is not interested in you, thats all. And most of the time you trying to hit on the person you already know, so every time you get rejected its like friendzoned? Oh, and if we would talk about girs, they pretty often say "I like you more as a friend", so you consider this as friendzoned? Even though this "I like you as a friend" is just get the hell out but not insulting one, that doesnt mean she considers you as a friend. Its just person likes you or dont :|

Yes, this.
It's tough when your crush doesn't like you back, but you have to accept you should get over that? You can't just blame them for it, or keep trying even when you know the answer already?

Depends on situation really, and the way you approach the "problem". At some points you should accept that and get over it, if you see, that your trying to get attention from your crush makes her/him uncomfortable in a bad way and you really care for that persons well being. On other times you can try to show to the person that you are worth the time, but of course you have to know how to do that, can't got overboard. Its REALLY long process, had tried that myself.

Like there is saying: If you love something - let go. I don't believe in that. If you love something you should reach out. Let go sounds like just give up if something doesn't go as you like. But as I say, it depends really on the situation and your ability to analyse situation and make the right choice.

Yea... I find it's easy to go overboard in that, especially because some people just have to "try again anyway because maybe..." And then it's better to just not do it.

You shouldn't just let go like that, I mean, if that person IS your friend then why abandon them? But if you can move on, it's best to do so, because dwelling on those unreturned feelings never really leads to anything good.
But yea, it does depend.

To me "friend zone" means that you are on some spectrum of being firends, BUT given that one wants to have a relationship with the other person, the other will not turn down the offer. So its kinda like a crush you don't really go after.

(Thats what I think though)

tbh It does really suck to be turned down by a person you really really like and its ok to feel down about it !!! whats not ok is when you start getting all pissy about it and blame / guilt the other person. Honestly its not a fine line at all. its like. dont be a dick. that's all.
I don't care if people wanna call it friend zone or not tbh. i tend to stray away from the word bc of its negative connotation.

Same here, I mostly just don't like the word itself at all.
It's fine if you're hurt because your crush is not interested, but you have to be mature about it and realise the other person did nothing wrong.

Either they have a different interpretation of it, OR a very twisted view on relationships. Kinda hoping the majority is the former.

a: "Do you want to engage in mutual facelicking and change your facebook status because I do."

I think the friendzone exists. It's the concept that you're in love with your friend and they want to stay friends. That part is true. However, it's fine to be sad about that. But getting sore about it/blaming the other person/calling for them names/etc. is 100% not acceptable. It is the other person's choice on whether they want a relationship with you or not. It has to be mutual. Being a pissbaby about it is stupid.

Yes, exactly. It can hurt, yes, but you can NOT blame them for it. No one owes you a relationship, and if you think they do, you're not a good person to have as a friend, sadly.

I dont know, but i think that if you complain about being in the friendzone, then you probably havent made it clear to the person, that you want more out of the relationship than that? :shrug:

Or they just aren't interested, which sucks for you, but you can't blame the other person? I mean, you can't just get those feelings out of nowhere?

:iconspitfiresonice:
SpitfiresOnIce Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I've seen multiple interpretations of it, hence why I was confused, because most people use it in a context where they have feelings for someone, but that person wants to stay friends because they are not interested. Which is just rejection in my book, so I was confused as to why it needed a separate word.

You just said "that person wants to stay friends because they are not interested. Which is just rejection in my book".
Am I missing something? You clearly associated friendship with romantic rejection.

:iconspitfiresonice:
SpitfiresOnIce Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I meant that in context of one friend having one-sided romantic feelings for another, not in a context of friendship in general.
And I still don't know where your idea that that meant indifference came from? I never used the word indifference there.

Indifference may be just my interpretation of 'not interested' (no love, but no hate either). Sorry.
