Being stuck in the friendzone means that you aren't able to have more than a friendly relationship with that special someone you are attracted to. However, it is wrongly perceived as a state that only males can go through. As a female, I can assure you that women can also be friendzoned.
Cassandra : Guess what, John? I have been friendzoned by Peter, my GUY friend.

John: I thought only males could go through such a phase?

Women all around the world : You thought wrong, John.

Formerly a way for a nice guy to express frustration that a female friend of his was always telling him she needed to be with a guy like him in between dating guys who treated her like crap. Now a reason for misandrist feminists to play the victim card and write shrill screeds about how the concept of the friend zone is "sexist" and claim that the men think being nice to a woman obligates her to have sex with them. The feminists ignore the probability that the men actually want relationships with the women and the women really are just shallow and attracted to "bad boys" who really do treat them like crap.
"That guy complains about how so many girls like abusive jerks while the friend zone nice guys like him. I don't know anything about the particulars of his situation, but still I'm 100% certain that just means he is a wimp who expects girls to have sex with him for being nice to them. "

friendzoned is basically a preemptive rejection where people get too comfortable with someone and see them as only a special conversation/sharing info partner 'a friend' and unconsciously reject the person as a sexual opportunity and would be shocked and appalled if that was brought up. Its a sickness that runs rampant in todays society and must be stopped.
The best example of this would be that of Daniel and Nicole. Man i wish he'd get out of the "Friend Zone" so sean and i could make that new movie with Aziz Ansari, Jonah Hill, Kevin Hart, Mila Kunis, and Timothy DeLaGhetto

"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 him had he acted differently when they first met. -see example

-being "friendzoned" does not have to mean something negative in nature, it is simply a word to label the common situation of a male is only seen as a friend in the eyes of a female come the time he confesses his feels for her, which is completely ok, by no means does the male friend feel he is intitled to be with said female(unless they are an assholes), everyone obviously has the right to reject who they wish, but that does not mean the male has no right to feel rejected and inadequate, especially in situations where said female chooses to be with another man of which the male friend feels is not appropriate for said female, for whatever reason, such as opposing males personality(taking advantage of her and such). its mostly based on social norms and essentially stereotypes of male and female interaction. Of course this is not always the case, it is possible for a female to become "friendzoned" as the roles are simply reversed, though it is less common as guys are more in the position of asking a girl to be with him (a social norm). I personally dislike like the reality of social norms, but that does not mean they are not blatantly obvious, more so when observing rather than participating.
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 has been friendzoned by Mary.

John had a chance when they first met but he messed 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.

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 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."
