Top definition
A term many guys (and some girls) use when they have been rejected, whether it is straight out or inadvertently said. People tend to claim it is the other person's fault and/or that they are a "friendzoning bitch" despite the fact that the person may really only like them as a friend, which is a false move seeing as that person believes they should fake feelings and be in a relationship.
Girl1: Thanks, you're a great friend!
Guy1: Did you seriously just friend zone me?
Girl1: Excuse me?

Guy2: Will you go out with me?
Girl2: I'm sorry. I just don't like you in that way, you're a friend.
Guy2: Not anymore, bitch. I'm the nice guy unlike the jerks you date.
Girl2: Excuse me?

Guy3: So Susie totally friendzoned me today.
Guy4: Aw, that sucks, man.

When someone rejects another when asked out. Many friend-zoned people suffer from extreme butthurt over being friend-zoned, so cold and bitter definitions are posted on dictionary sites like this one. They also don't seem to understand that a man/woman has the right to reject someone if they see them only as a friend.
Man, she put me in the friend zone! Better angrily vlog about how she practiced her own free will.

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..."

“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
