It's something we've all dealt with one way or another, whether we put someone in there or been put in there ourselves, the "Friend Zone" has affected all of us. Here's the thing though, I don't think it's a bad thing that this exists. First off, you have no idea what is going through the persons mind when they put you in there, they could be going through a rough break up, a rough home life, or just arent mentally prepared for a relationship right now, you need to be okay with being put in there, and here's why. Every single relationship starts off in the friend zone, ask people who have been married for years they will say that their significant other is their best friend. Think about it, what is a marriage/relationship it is an incredibly close friendship at its most basic form.

Another reason the friend zone is not bad is, that you will be in the friend zone with 6.99999999999999999999999 billion people. Because in the end, you will most likely end up with one person, hence: Friend Zone'd by the majority of the worlds population.

Finally, it shows what kind of person you are. i Recommend every person puts a potential significant other in the friend zone, just to see what kind of person they are. If they react angrily or cut you off, you see that person's true intentions, but if they are fine with it, and prove they can be someone you can turn to, take them out. because that's always a possibility.

You have to be okay with being in there, it's not easy to deal with, but it's something that everyone will go through. Plus, if you get out of the friend zone, everyone will be impressed.
