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.
I am stuck in the motherfucking friendzone. Kill me now.

A very frustrating and very shitty place to be. More commonly experienced by men than women. Mostly becuase of the fact that men are comfortable with being in a relationship/fucking a friend, where women will piss and moan about not wanting to ruin a frendship, somehow overlooking the fact that guys already have friends, and so do they. Stupid bitches.
Friend zone? Man, you don't wish that shit on your WORST enemies! Thats fucked up yo.

A mythical place were misogynists go to when a woman doesn't want their penis.
"I didn't expect her to have sex with me, so she should have had sex with me. I'm totally in the friendzone!"

"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.

source & further examples:
person A: I tried to kiss her, but then she said " I think we should just stay good friends. "
person B: Wow. You totally got into the friendzone.

The excuse a man gives for a woman rejecting him sexually/romantically when he expected a payoff for being friendly.
"We've been friends for two years but really I want to be your boyfriend"
"Oh...well....I don't feel that way about you"
"You've put me in the friendzone? Thanks for wasting my time"

When either a guy or a girl puts alot of time and energy into wanting to date someone but end up getting false hope and the common lines like "its complicated" or " i love you so much as a friend and i do not want to lose that bond" bottom line your just a friend. Usually that might make you feel like a gay confident and you will just suffer more while hanging around with the person you love. Often happens to nice guys who finish last.
john i am sorry but I like you more as a friend (welcome to the friend zone)

Having all the responsibilities of a boyfriend with none of the benefits. Seen as a dick in a jar for women when she can't fuck someone better.
Mike had a crush on Kelly for years, but being in the friend zone prevented him from getting anywhere with her.
