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?

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

When you are expected to support a girl you really like while she searches for a smarter, richer, or more handsome boyfriend. There is little you can do to get out without feeling like a dick. All in all, one of the meanest things girls do, whether they mean it or not.
Kayla told me we were just friends when I asked her out. I told her I couldn't bear to see her find someone else so she shouldn't call me again. Saved my ass from the friendzone.

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."

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!

A term used by incredibly butthurt little boys in relation to the fact that the girl they like doesn't want to fuck them. It's an excuse the little boy makes to make the girl look like she's doing something wrong when the little boy is really just over egotistical and/or an asshurt sore loser. The little boy just doesn't want to accept the fact the girl doesn't want him.
Tyler: That fucking bitch fucking friend zoned me!
Anna: Shut up, your ego will live.
Tyler: She's just a stupid slut, every guy she dates is a douche!
Anna: You're just butthurt because she doesn't want you.

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.


"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..."
