You and I have most likely gone through one or several friend zone signs before. We use the sixth sense to read into all the signs and sometimes want to believe we are wrong. We are not. We are usually RIGHT the moment the friend zone thoughts begin to linger.

Here is the situation. You love this person so dearly and believe life is not worth living without them. But again, the person you are crazy about has no intimate feelings towards you, but wants you around, all the time!  They would rather you remained a close friend with whom to share secrets and pains.

As much as you will want to convince yourself there is a silver lining at the end of the day, chances are, your relationship with your CRUSH will most likely remain that way. Unless of course, unlikely circumstances rewire the misfortune in your favor.  

Welcome to the Friendzone

When you exhibit friend zone signs, you do so to have for yourself a person to turn to in the event of heartbreak or boredom. You just want someone that will be there through rain or shine.

What then are the friend zone signs you should be looking out for?

The emotions are swiftly blocked if in a friend zone

1. The Matchmaker

When the person you are so much attracted to turns matchmaker on your behalf and begins suggesting other boys or girls for you, then you are probably toast. The message is clear enough you are not in his/her plan! On the contrary they want you to be available for others.

To make matters worse, you will be ASSURED how you deserve the best and not any Mary or John. They will always want to help spot some girl or boy you should be dating.

2. You Hung Out but Never Get Serious

There is no better feeling than going out with your crush any given day. Equally true is that every single one of those dates and outings is exciting. They will actually stretch for hours on end. You will most probably spend most of those hours trying to figure out the relationship but without headway.

The signals from your side could be strong enough and transparent. Your crush will however steer clear of your flirty innuendos – so you know.

3. She/He Will Tell You Anything Private

Your crush will most likely tell you everything intimate about his/her past and current relationship. It is worse if it is related to the stress he/she goes through with the current LOVER and how desperate he/she is to get abetter replacement.

I want someone new, someone I have never met before, someone refreshing and spontaneous,

Of course, you are bound to get excited and raise your hopes, thinking you are the perfect replacement. My dear, you will never be.

will be the response.

You are definitely none of the above.

4. Will Turn Down Your Advances Swiftly

Of course, the more you meet, talk and interact with is unnecessarily your apparent crush, the more likely you will get opportunities to express your feelings to her or him. Interestingly, you will always get a swift NO response!

But having gone through social situations where YES and NO are used interchangeably, the feeling of other opportunities keep presenting themselves. Patience becomes the name of the game.

When he or she notices you are getting IDEAS into your head, the CHEATING line will be tossed before you.

I do not cheat on my boy/girlfriend

This and other stern answers will block any loophole you try to exploit.

5. He or She Does Not Have to Be Smart

This is a big one. Read between the lines every time he/she gets out of the house and walks down the streets with you. If he/she is unnecessarily casual about appearance, then you are being friend-zoned.

Flashy appearance does not matter in your presence and is replaced with freedom and the need to feel relaxed. After all, that is the mood your friendship creates.

What is The Way Forward If Friend Zoned?

It depends on how desperate you are and the urgency you have in getting betrothed, visa viz the benefits derived. If you are desperate, RUN my brother and sister, from the friend zone signs listed above! If however, you are in for friendship, why not hang around. It is amazing how this kind of friendship can be nurtured above everything else.
