look up any word, like basic:
 
17.
Primary definition:
No matter how a woman says it or the words she uses when she places a guy in the Friend Zone there is no going back. Regardless of how hot she is or what chemistry you thought was there, you're done. Like being broken up with before a relationship even got started. The quicker you reach the Friend Zone the better than there may not be as much attachment.

Secondary definition:
Groveling, begging or pleading will only push you into the Friend Zone deeper and deeper. Keep moving, don't look back. Call, text or email occassionally. Be aloof and keep your options open. This is the only chance you have to get out of the Friend Zone. As soon as you get Friended use that as motivation to meet another lady AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!
Amy: "I think you're a great guy and want to get to know each other better. But I also want to keep my options open. I'm just looking for friends right now. I'm not ready for a relationship."

Paul: "Than why did you reply to my Personals Ad knowing I was looking for a LTR?!? I don't need more chick 'friends'!! I want a girlfriend. I got put in the Friend Zone after the first date! This bites!"

-----------

Amy: "Got any plans this weekend? Let's go do something."

Paul: "Sorry, I can't. I have plans with my girlfriend this weekend. Maybe another time." (the ultimate payback & turning the tables)

What you attain after you fail to impress a woman you're attracted to. Usually initiated by the woman saying, "You're such a good friend". Usually associated with long days of suffering and watching your love interest hop from one bad relationship to another. Verb tense is "Friend-ed".
"I spent all that money on a date, just to find out she put me in the Friend Zone(said with eerie echo)."

"You know that hot girl I've been talking to? She just Friend-ed me."

Chris Rock once said something like :--

You know one cool thing about women, women get to have platonic friends. "He's my pal, he's my bud, he's my pla-ton-ic friend...I love him like a brother, he's my bud, my platonic friennd."

Men don't have platonic friends. We just have women we haven't fucked -yet-..."as soon as I figure this out, I'm in there!".

I mean, we got some platonic friends, we go "Oh no I got some but they all by accident - every platonic friend i got is some women I was trying to fuck, i made a wrong turn somewhere, and ended up in the friend zone - Oh No! I'm in the Friend Zone!".
"you're really great, you're just such a good friend" and a million derivatives there of. Most likely being said around the globe as you read this.

A myth based on a lie straight women tell their ugly straight male friends as a less hurtful way of rejecting their sexual advances. It is said that if a man doesn't immediately make his romantic intentions known that the woman will forever consider him a friend. He is then said to be in the "friend zone."
Julie: "Fred's a nice guy, but he's kinda fat and ugly, so when he asked me out, I told him I didn't want to risk ruining our friendship. I mean, maybe if he lost a few pounds..."
Nancy: "Good idea. That way his feelings aren't hurt. You really sidestepped that one."

Fred: "Julie's totally into me, but she considers the friendship too important to act on her intense desire for me."
Steve: "Aw, man, you're totally in the friend zone. That sucks. So what now?"
Fred: "Well, I guess I have to keep trying, right? I mean, she must find me attractive."
Steve: "Totally."

A very frustrating and very shitty place to be. More commonly experienced by men than women. Mostly becuase of the fact that men are comfortable with being in a relationship/fucking a friend, where women will piss and moan about not wanting to ruin a frendship, somehow overlooking the fact that guys already have friends, and so do they. Stupid bitches.
Friend zone? Man, you don't wish that shit on your WORST enemies! Thats fucked up yo.

“The ‘friend zone’ is like the penalty box of dating, only you can never get out. Once a girl decides you’re her ‘friend,’ it’s game over. You’ve become a complete non-sexual entity in her eyes, like her brother, or a lamp.” - Ryan Reynolds in Just Friends
'I've been locked in the friend zone with her since highschool!'
