A guy is great friends with a girl on many levels, save for anything intimate. Possibly the best 'zone' to be in, as a male.

The guy is privy to many a little known facts.

She'll give him a hug if he's down, not just because he got her flowers.

Emotional support is usually mutual, and beneficial.

Best part: You will never fight. As friends, one of you will say something silly or with innuendo, and it'll be back to normally conversation.
George: Bro, I'm so happy to be in the friendzone with Cathy.

Lucas: WTF man? That means you'll never date her or get shit!

George: Psh, I don't care. I can play games with her anytime, we joke all the time, never fight, and hang out so often!

Lucas: Man, you be tripping. If you aren't getting booty, you have no reason to be up in there.

George: Got it all wrong man, the Friendzone is the place to be.

When a jerk with an overinflated sense of entitlement who thinks that respecting a woman gives him the right to make romantic or sexual demands of her gets his poor little feelings hurt because the woman he wants to date/romance/bone exercises HER right not to want to date/romance/bone him in return.
"You know, I thought John was a great guy until he started acting like I OWED him for being nice to me, and whined about how I'm an 'ungrateful bitch' because I put him in the 'friendzone.'"

The Ninth layer of hell mostly overrun with guys. some girls maybe in there as well but it is a rare case. There is no way out other than pure skill and luck. Its kind of like winning a game of Uno, but the win loss ratio is 1-1000000000000. Many enter but few will escape.
Example 1:
Chaz: I Love you and I want to be more than friends
Amanda: I don't want to ruin out relationship we have right now though... Is that ok?
Chaz: Friendzoned again....

Example 2:
Amanda: I love you and I want to be more than friends...
Chaz: Meh I'll think about it...
Amanda: Damn... Friendzoned again...

Example of Escape:
Chaz or Amanda: I can't take this anymore. I have been so nice to you for these years! I saved your mothers life, cured cancer and caused the end to wars! I love you and I need you!
Chaz or Amanda: Oh... now that I realized this... I LOVE YOU TO!

Then they have sex...

You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.
"The Friendzone is the Mos Eisley of relationships."

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."
