Alright. I’m sick of these “friend-zone” posts. As a girl who has put a few guys in the “friend-zone”, and has been attacked for it, I’m finally saying something. Yes, I have made my mistakes and dated my share of jerks; honestly I’m not sure of anyone who hasn’t made a similar mistake in their lives. And completely honest, I have made the mistake of giving guys who weren’t my type a chance just because they seemed nice. We date all different types of people to see exactly what it is we are looking for. But just because you’re a good friend doesn’t mean that you should automatically be guaranteed a title of boyfriend; especially when most of you turn out to be just as much of as a jerk as the guy we dated previously. Have you ever considered that you could possibly just not be our type? Unless you want a pity date, I suggest you stop complaining about the “friend-zone” type, and either move on to someone else and be ok with being friends, or show us what it is exactly we might be missing out on rather than just a “nice guy who might listen.” Sometimes it takes more than that, such as common interests or even simple attraction.
And by the way, don’t always expect that a woman likes you or wants to get in your pants because she’s being nice back; there are some people out there who are just friendly… knock it off.
