The friend zone is the mythical place where a man is put into despite known/unknown sexual/romantic feelings for a woman. Everybody then thinks of the woman as a bitch or rude, even though she really just doesn't have any romantic/sexual feelings for the man, but thinks he's a great person and wants to be friends with him.
Alex: Oh man, Sheila just friendzoned you so hard! The friend zone sucks! She's such a bitch, any girl would be lucky to have you!
Ted: I know, man. I irrationally hate her now.

Sheila: Ted is such a great guy, I'm lucky to be friends with him!
Cassandra: I know! Would you mind setting me up on a date with him?
Sheila: Sure! I think it would be great if he was in a relationship with someone! I would date him myself, but I don't have any romantic or sexual feelings for him. But you would make a great girlfriend!

The seventh level of hell, where despite all and any efforts to the contrary, no member of the opposite sex will ever see you as anything more than conversation.

Usually due to being a minger, though possibly part of an atmosphere of victimisation around one or more people in a social group.

Basically a very embarrassing situation both parties would probably like to forget. This can happen to ANYONE (Who the hell cares about gender? This can happen to homosexuals, too. Not only straight people want to find love).

A asks out B, but B doesn't want to complicate the relationship they already have (because maybe they're good friends, and no one likes loosing the chemistry or bond they have with a close friend).

In other words, not wanting to be more than just friends with someone that has feelings for you that are beyond friendship.
------------------------------------------------

Example:

"Hey, B. I like you. I've liked you for quite a while now, actually. Will you go out with me?"

"WHAT? Uh, I-I can't do that, A. I'm sorry. I just want us to stay friends. Nothing more..."

A term guys use to guilt girls into going out with them out of pity.
John: Stacey, will you go out with me?
Stacey: I'm sorry, John, but no.
John: *later to friends* And then she totally friend zoned me, dude! So unfair, I've spent too much time with her doing amazing things for her to not be riding that shit! I'm entitled to bang her, now, but she's being a bitch!
Friend: Dude she didn't friend zone you you're just a douchebag.

When somebody, usually a male, gets needlessly offended by the fact that a girl isn't attracted to them romantically and/or sexually.

The female will then say something along the lines of, "I'd rather just be friends." This is apparently some sort of 'bitch move'.
See also girlfriend zone and butthurt.
Guy 1: "Did you hear about Sarah? I wasted two weeks on that bitch and she said she wanted to be friends!"

Guy 2: "Dude, you got friend zoned."

Guy 3: "Um, dude, she just doesn't have feelings for you. Get over it. She can't control who she's attracted to."

"Friend zone" describes the way most women stop seeing a male friend as dating material after a certain amount of time has passed, even though she might have begun dating them had he acted differently when they first met.

John meets Mary. Mary thinks "This guy seems nice. He's quite funny and reasonably good looking". John doesn't ask Mary out, but they see each other at social functions. After a while, Mary stops seeing John as a nice guy who is quite funny and reasonably good looking, and just sees him as friend. John realizes he's secretly madly in love with Mary and begins trying to hang out with her more and more. Because John loves Mary, he stops behaving reasonably and starts doing anything just to spend time with her. Eventually, he summons his courage and confesses his love for her. But Mary just feels uncomfortable and confused. She doesn't want to lose her friend and she feels pressured by his feelings for her. To be honest, John's been a little needy and pathetic lately, hanging on her every word and catering to her every whim, and that's not really very sexy.

John had a chance when they first met but he fucked it up by not doing anything about it. When he finally got his act together, the friendship that developed actively interfered with his potential of getting Mary to go on a date with him.
