Hiya LHers!!! It’s been a while. What’s happening in your end? Hope PHCN is not holding the light in your area like some people? LOL.
I never really understood how it felt to be “friend zoned” until I was put on the spot. In the past, it was very easy for me to tell any guy that was interested in me that “I would prefer we remained just friends” but after experiencing it, I knew how they felt when I ignored their feelings but the truth is, you can’t force it…
Wondering why I chose to write about the topic? Well I was listening to a radio show some days back and one of the presenters asked his colleague if she has ever been friend zoned and she was like she can not remember. He went further to explain what he meant by friend zone in case she didn’t understand. According to him, “it’s a situation in which one friend makes it known to the other that they are single, available and wish to enter into a relationship with them while the other does not.”
Thinking about it, I must say I have been friend zoned once. Yeah I have and it’s nothing to be ashamed of. I remember meeting this dude back then in school and we just clicked. We flowed like we’ve known each other for ages and even though he didn’t tick all of my boxes, I didn’t care. I never failed to remind him I was single and available whenever we discussed but for where, the Bobo never asked me out because he was okay with just being my friend. After a while, I stopped forcing it and I moved on….
Your turn, have you been FRIEND ZONED? How did you handle the situation?
