Basically when you fail to really impress a girl you end up in this shit hole. Its not quite hell but its not near heaven, its basically limbo, basically put you've got a football star who gets both his knees shot out and thats your comparison, very similar to your dogs dead but you can keep it if you want. See "I dont like you like that" and "lets just be friends". Woman's way of making trolling. Yes I have been trolled.
Friend-zone examples:

Bob: Hey Casey want to go out? *braces for the friend-zone*
Casey: Bob I don't like you like that I'm sorry lets just be friends
Bob: sure.....
Bob: *thinking*: shit shit shit i'm getting the fuck out of this
------------------------------------
Bob: Yeah Casey friend-zoned me, definatly just wasted 4 weeks of my life and a good chunk of cash......
Tom: trolled!
Bob: Yeah....

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."

“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 term often used in bitterness by men when women make the choice to not fuck someone. Often used by douchebags or people with Nice Guy Syndrome.
I went to the friend zone once to make some friends but it was just a bunch of angry mens' rights activists wearing fedoras.
