1. The hellish place that a man will find himself in if he does not immediately place a woman he is beginning to form a relationship with below him and make his shallow sexual intentions the focus. This occurs most often when a man decides he likes a woman and actually has enough respect for her to treat her with dignity.
2. A term used by some women to excuse their complete lack of sexual attraction to a man who has recently made it clear they are interested in a relationship. This is mostly due to Disney movies, which give women unrealistic expectations and a sense of entitlement to a "Prince Charming."
Poor Bastard: (What they're saying) Hey, I've really enjoyed getting to know you these past few weeks. (What they're thinking) Hey, I've really enjoyed getting to know you these past few weeks.
Selfish Bitch: (What they're saying) I know! You're such a great friend! (What they're thinking) I have too! You're so good at listening to me complain!
Poor Bastard: (What they're saying) Well, that's the thing, I think I'd like to be more than friends. (What they're thinking) Well, that's the thing, I think I'd like to be in a relationship with you.
Selfish Bitch: (What they're saying) But I wouldn't want to ruin our friendship! (What they're thinking) I can't comprehend the fact that you legitimately care for me, and since I'm more sexually attractive than you are I'm going to use your feelings to my emotional advantage! Enjoy being used in the friend zone!
Poor Bastard: (What they're saying) I get that, let's stay friends! (What they're thinking) I'm going to go kill myself!

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..."
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!

The state of being just a friend to somebody, usually for a very long time.
"Better to be an enemy than to be in the friend zone."
A term used to vilify a woman for excercising her right to say no. One day the male gender just decided that if you're friends with a woman or nice to her that she's obligated to date you and if she doesn't she's a horrible person. Women are put in the friend zone too, but society vastly ignores this fact. It's usually guys who go after extremely attractive women, and when they're rejected they think of this woman as shallow even though he himself is shallow for only pursuing women he sees as beautiful or pretty.
Bob: Wahhh! Suzy put me in the Friend Zone!
Joey: Forget her! All women are evil!
