No matter how a woman says it or the words she uses when she places a guy in the Friend Zone there is no going back. Regardless of how hot she is or what chemistry you thought was there, you're done. Like being broken up with before a relationship even got started. The quicker you reach the Friend Zone the better than there may not be as much attachment.
Groveling, begging or pleading will only push you into the Friend Zone deeper and deeper. Keep moving, don't look back. Call, text or email occassionally. Be aloof and keep your options open. This is the only chance you have to get out of the Friend Zone. As soon as you get Friended use that as motivation to meet another lady AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!
Amy: "I think you're a great guy and want to get to know each other better. But I also want to keep my options open. I'm just looking for friends right now. I'm not ready for a relationship."
Paul: "Than why did you reply to my Personals Ad knowing I was looking for a LTR?!? I don't need more chick 'friends'!! I want a girlfriend. I got put in the Friend Zone after the first date! This bites!"
Amy: "Got any plans this weekend? Let's go do something."
Paul: "Sorry, I can't. I have plans with my girlfriend this weekend. Maybe another time." (the ultimate payback & turning the tables)
