The cross faze period between two people where the relationship could go one of two ways: Total platonic friendship or Romantic partnership. Usually the former occurs, regardless of whether the two people are attracted to each other or not due to the high school mentality that risking a friendship is a risk they can't bare to make. Two people might be great for each other, but they are either to awkward or stubborn about the mention of idea with each other, often due to pressure from friends that they would be just "perfect for each other". This happens to both girls and boys, alike.
Deborah: Who do you think I'd be good with?
Alex: How about Henry?
Deborah: Everybody says that, I don't-I don't get it.

Alex: You two would be great together, though.
Deborah: Maybe. But he's such a good friend and I really don't want to put all my eggs in one basket...I don't even know him that well.
Alex: Who said you had to know him? That's what dates are for!
Deborah: I'd honestly much rather just remain in the FriendZone.

When a member of the opposite sex repeatedly makes transparent advances towards you while messing things up every time and behaves in a manner that is a)confusing b)just plain inappropriate c) awkward.

If a person does this, Friend Zone him/her immediately.
...As in - um, you just showed up at her house rang her doorbell then left?!!
Ting! You just got friend zoned.

-Oh man, you showed up at her friend's house and then called her FRIEND stupid?

Ting! Friend Zoned.

...duuuuude, you picked up her cousin?!!!
Ka-ching! Friend Zoned.

When you are in a deep emotional relationship with a member of the opposite sex that is in all ways exactly like a romantic relationship but without the physical connection. But unlike a romantic relationship, it is prone to end at any time and start up again without the inconvenience of actually breaking up.
"We spent all our time together and I thought we were going to start dating, but suddenly she started dating someone else and now barely talks to me. I guess I was in the friend zone."

The almost un-escapable place where you have a crush on someone but they only want to be friends. 1 record lasted 8 years in the friend zone.

-the absolute worst and most painful experience known to all of mankind.

-having feelings for someone who sees you as "a brother/sister"

- usually boys are said to be in the friendzone but girls get friendzoned just as much
-"hey, what happened? how did you brake every bone in your body?"
"oh I fell but it could be worse. I could be friendzoned."

- "oh yeah he friendzoned me because he likes my personality but I'm not pretty enough for him"

-"I knew I was friendzoned when he gave me a pat on the back as he said goodbye"

The perfect place to meet nice guys.
Girl1: "I'm done with men, I only meet such douchebags!"
Girl2: "Just look around your girlfriends' friend zones, they're full of nice guys."
