It has been speculated that women do not endup in the friend zone as frequently as men. But where they may endup is in the Bro Zone.

Though some consider it a male version of the friend zone; it is widely accepted that the Bro Zone is worse for the poor women stuck in it.

In essence it is when a woman is crowned "one of the guys." She's considered to be part of the dude pack without the sexual tension. Men behave without restraint around the individual; not worrying about what the woman might think or wether they impress her or not. She is accepted and embraced into the pack as an equal. In short, "she's a dude."

Women may endup in the Bro Zone by any of the following: easy going, friendly, social, accepting but also obsession with sports, curses like a sailor, not too attractive, macho like characteristics, butch

Women with mostly male friends are more susceptible to have several Bro Zone's. Also, most women in the Bro Zone do have a love interest they fail to impress because of the Zone. They endup listening to their love interests' girlfriend problems and, at times, his sexual encounters. All culminating with him saying "you're such an awesome friend."
Lyndsey (Girl in Bro Zone)

Guy #1 - "Dude, you shoulda' seen what happened with my girl the other day!"

Guy #2 - "Shhh, you sure you want to say that around Lyndsey?!"

Guy #1 - "Yea man, it's cool, she's like one of the guys!"

the "bro-zone" can be defined as an area in which a girl has entered when befriending a guy. Usually occurring with tomboys and their guy friends, when the male friend acknowledges the girl's actions (assuming that the girl is a tomboy) reffers to her as a "bro" or "another one of the guys". At this point the girl in question has entered the bro-zone. The bro-zone eliminates any possible chance of the friends having any sexual or relationship interest, and renders any chance of escaping the bro-zone hopeless.
Katie: So how was hanging out with Chad and his friends?
Marcy: *sigh* he called me his "buddy"...his "bro"
Katie: ooooo hate to say're permanantly in his bro-zone.
Marcy: ya, and I still like him.
Katie: you might as well give up on him, there's no hope now that you're in the bro-zone.

Colloquial terminology relating to a house that is populated by alumni of a fraternity where the occupants continue to live a lifestyle associated with fraternity life popularized by such movies as Animal House, National Lampoon's Van Wilder, Revenge of the Nerds, PCU, and Old School. In contrast with other slang terms such as "bachelor pad" and "Baller", which have a positive connotation bordering on ostentatious, such houses are usually rented and tend to be in poor condition, as recent alumni generally lack the financial capabilities to invest in prime real estate.
Concluding my long day at work, I headed back to the Bro Zone hoping for a relaxing evening, only to find my roommates rippin' gravity bongs while watching porno on the big screen.

After going on a week-long bender at the Bro Zone, I checked myself into detox.

"Who's that donkey you were with last night?" "Oh just some skank I met at the Bro Zone last weekend."

When a man is very close to a woman and does not want to date them

This is not fictional it really does exist. The bro-zone if very treacherous and fearsome. This is when a girl you like starts to call you bro. Girls will usually start doing this when they have a boyfriend and they want a shoulder to cry on that their boyfriend does not mind because you are like her "bro" or "brother" ,but after so long of being called bro a girl will get the mindset that you are her bro. When this happens your chance of dating that girl is gone forever. Friend-zone can usually be wiggled out of eventually.

The bro-zone can be stopped before it gets to serious. It usually works quite well also. The first time a girl calls you bro you stop them. When a girl needs a shoulder to cry on accept it sometimes. If you do this they will know youre trustworthy and not just their "brother." Make sure when you can't help the girl you have an alibi and witnesses.
Guy 1: Hey man, did you hear that Rachel and her boyfriend broke up? You should ask her out.
Guy 2: Awesome, I will.
A few weeks later...
Guy 2: Hey Rachel, I have a question.
Rachel: Yes ,what is it?
Guy 2: Will you go out with me?
Rachel: I'm sorry. No, i can't date my brother.

Guy 1: How did it go?
Guy 2: She said no. I am in the bro-zone.
