What is quite possibly one of the worst places a guy could ever be in if you like someone. It doesn't matter the situation, once you're in, you feel like you're in a cage.
It consists of a multitude of possible emotions that you will succumb to. Mostly jealousy, defeat, hopelessness and a strange sense of knowing that your aspirations are an impossibility. You'll constantly know that the person you like will not like you in the same way. But for some reason, you're still friends with her. You feel like you can get her back, but it's not gonna happen.
And it's worse when they tell you about their significant other/crush/boyfriend. You might see them walk further away from you every day. You become a cushion, having to watch them with the person they THINK is perfect for them. But deep down, you know it's not true. But they think they are, and you have to acknowledge it as a reality.
It's hell on earth, guys.
I'm in the friend zone. An ever-so confining area of regret, jealousy and defeat. I won't be able to get her.
