When someone you like and want a relationship with decides that they only want you as a friend, even though they like all your qualities and are going to use you as a baseline to judge all other possible boy/girlfriends. People who do this are not worth your time and effort simply because they're not good enough for you.
Note: It IS possible, once in a relationship, to be Re-Friend-zoned. This happens when your partner, despite all other indications they made, never actually stopped seeing you as a friend. People who do this, whether or not their intentions were good, will never have a successful relationship until they learn more about themselves (i.e. how to know when they're ready for and want a relationship) and how to respect others by not leading them on.
Dunn: So, are you going to ask her out again sometime later?
Marcus: Nah, she friendzoned me, I want someone better than that.
Thomas: So, do you want to go out sometime?
Shelby: Sure, I'd love to!
3 moths later....
Shelby: I'm sorry, but I don't think this relationship is working...
Thomas: Why not?! Everything was going so well!
Shelby: I know, and you're great, but I just never saw you as more then my best friend.
Thomas: .........wow. I hope you grow up, because God help the next person you call your boyfriend.
