noun:
The location of the female heart where she sentences male friends romantically interested in her. Here, they will be subject to torment as they helplessly watch her jump from man to man, and never have their own chance. Usually one is condemned to the friendzone for not making a move on the girl in question in time. Also, it can be used as an excuse for the woman to gently let down a man she has no interest in. One can tell he is in the friendzone when she says "you're too important to me, I couldn't risk our friendship for a relationship." Whether or not she is telling the truth becomes irrelevant at this point. If anything to that effect is said, one can tell he's been sentenced to an indefinite term in the friendzone. Note that escaping the friendzone (which is heavily guarded) is very difficult and even if one manages to escape, the relationship will be forever marred and altered.
"Dude, she told me I was too important to her to risk a relationship. That's deep."
"Bro you're an idiot. You just got friendzoned."

Basically where a man ends up when a girl finds out that she can make him his "boy friend" without having sex or other equally gratifying contact with him. It's an especially bad place for the guy, because it means that he's in for relentless crying and bitching and suffering when she's in-between boyfriends. In other words, you're the first person she goes to when she needs a cry and a bitch, but the last person she'd actually date or have sex with. If she asks you how to get a man, knowing you like her, then just shoot yourself right then, or move on.
Brody: So, what did she say?

Kyle: She said that "You're too good a friend for me to date you..." then later asked "Why can't I get a guy?"

Brody: Dude, you're in the friend zone. Look up urbandictionary.com and askmen.com so that this emotional castration doesn't happen to you again! XD

Is a misogynistic term used by males who befriend females for the soul purpose of getting in their pants, but are unable to because the female is either uninterested, dating someone already, or has some other reason.

A person who uses this term usual feels victimized because the girl doesn't dish out, and the female is characterized as being the bad guy for not reciprocating his feelings.
Guy 1: For 2 years I've listened to her problems, comforted her, took care of her when she was sick, been her friend...But she still won't dump her douche boyfriend even though I am clearly better for her. I'm stuck in the friendzone

Guy 2: I know that feel bro, girls are bitches sometimes

The "friendzone" is indeed a place of Hell on Earth, often for the man who “tries to do the right thing” by being a gentleman and respecting a woman’s choice of who she wants to date.
In the friendzone, he will become her friend when she rejects him because he believes that if he does so, she will eventually recognize what a great guy he is and “come around”. She will want him to be around, her confidant and patsy who she can spend time doing most of the things that she would do with a boyfriend except for those duties that are fulfilled in a sexual manner. She would also like her car fixed, repairs on her house and generally anything that a capable and worthwhile man can do. Why not? He’s usually offering it. Many women know that the reason the man is doing this is because he likes her, which is what pisses off some hetero males and makes them condemn all women as being shallow and selfish bitches. However, this is certainly not true of all women as some fall for the dishonesty of a man who is not sharing his true motives.
In some cases, the man could be a gentleman who truly wants to give her an opportunity to get to know him and how he would treat her if they were otherwise a couple. However, there is often a bigger lie on the man’s part, as he is really being her friend for the ultimate payoff of a romantic relationship and deep down he knows this isn’t likely to happen; yet he continues on behaving otherwise since he believes she is worth the pain and self-sacrifice.

A term used to vilify women for exercising her right to say no because somewhere along the line men got the idea that women are obligated to date or sleep with anyone who talks to them or who they're friends with, and if they don't they're horrible people.
Bob: Wahhh Suzy put me in the friend zone!

George: Oh forget her! She's a heartless bitch! All women are the same!

Suzy: Excuse me? First of all I can't help the fact that I'm not attracted to Bob like that. Second of all I lost one of my closest friends who it turns out was only pretending to be my friend in hopes of getting in my pants, and I'm the villian here?
