Probably the worst f**king place on this Earth. Happens normally to caring, nice guys. Girl examples are rare, but not unheard of. In most cases, the guy loves the girl, and cares about her greatly. However, due to this action, today's female will often see this as a friend-like behavior, or not realize the love he has for her. The male does everything for the girl, would always be there for her, and yet the girl doesn't seem to give two shits about his side of the story. He has continually listen to her moan and bitch about her asshole boyfriend, and how she wish she had a caring, nice one. This is normally where the male either excuses himself to go wallow in self pity, or explodes in anger at the female, confessing his love for the girl in the process. In this case, the talk usually ends with "You're a nice, caring guy, but you're more like a friend/brother to me." Which confuses the hell out of the guy, because she was just complaining about wanting a nice, caring boyfriend. All in all, a hell on earth for nice guys.
Girl: Oh my gosh Johnny, I don't understand why Bill is being such an asshole. I wish I could have a nice, caring boyfriend."

(example 1)Nice caring Johnny: "Well, I'm sure you'll find him someday." (Thinks: He could be sitting next to you...) "Hey, but I have to go wallow in self-pity in the friend zone--I mean wash the dishes."

(Example 2)Nice caring Johnny: "Oh my god Katelyn if you really wanted one, I could've been there! I have loved you for a long time, and I always have to hear you bitch about all of your asshole boyfriends, and I'm sick you you coming to me. If you wanted a caring boyfriend, I would gladly have been it. Why not give me a fucking chance?"

Girl: I'm sorry, you're a nice caring guy and all, but you're more like a friend/brother to me."

Nice caring Johnny: "WTF?! You make NO fucking sense bitch!"

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.

I went to the friend zone once to make some friends but it was just a bunch of angry mens' rights activists wearing fedoras.

“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!'

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."
