A particularly aggravating metaphorical place, that people end up in when someone they are interested in only wants to be friends. It is impossible to get over someone while in the friendzone, because, as friends, you still see them too often for them to be erased from your memory, and yet, you cannot be with them the way you want.
Person 1: Hypothetically, how would you react if I told you I like you?
Person 2: I'm sorry, I don't mean to hurt you, but I want to just be friends.
Person 1 is now in the friendzone.

A term many guys (and some girls) use when they have been rejected, whether it is straight out or inadvertently said. People tend to claim it is the other person's fault and/or that they are a "friendzoning bitch" despite the fact that the person may really only like them as a friend, which is a false move seeing as that person believes they should fake feelings and be in a relationship.
Girl1: Thanks, you're a great friend!
Guy1: Did you seriously just friend zone me?
Girl1: Excuse me?

Guy2: Will you go out with me?
Girl2: I'm sorry. I just don't like you in that way, you're a friend.
Guy2: Not anymore, bitch. I'm the nice guy unlike the jerks you date.
Girl2: Excuse me?

Guy3: So Susie totally friendzoned me today.
Guy4: Aw, that sucks, man.

When someone rejects another when asked out. Many friend-zoned people suffer from extreme butthurt over being friend-zoned, so cold and bitter definitions are posted on dictionary sites like this one. They also don't seem to understand that a man/woman has the right to reject someone if they see them only as a friend.
Man, she put me in the friend zone! Better angrily vlog about how she practiced her own free will.

Friendzone:

The friendzone is a terrifying place for young men, as it resides deep in Satan's ass crack. When a young man attempts a romantic/sexual relationship with a woman and is rejected due to her disinterest, he dramatically exclaims that he is in the friendzone. The woman insists that they are 'just friends' but the young man cannot comprehend, as the dating pool has always looked like an arcade to him, and women the machines that you insert kindness coins until sex or a relationship falls out.

Then the man blames the woman for his inability to land a date/girlfriend/someone to cradle his balls. 3 magical symbols appear, to guide him into the friendzone. First, his fedora descends from the heavens, embellished with naked ponies. Then, it starts raining Monster drink, and the man is soaked in the presence of excessive sugar and whining. Finally, he emits a warning call (most likely by trolling on Reddit) and finally the friendzone swallows him.

We are not sure what happens in the friendzone itself, but the faint echoes of "I'm a nice guy" can be heard all the way from the ass crack of Satan. It's truly a terrifying place, where one can lament about other women's shortcomings and call them "bitches, sluts and whores" when the whining just won't cut it.
Woman: "I think we should be friends."
Dudebro: "OMG I CANNO T BELIEVE THIS. I PAID FOR YOUR SHITTY ASS DINNER. I TREATED U LIKE A HUMAN BEING. H OW CAN Y OU DO THIS, HOW?"

Woman: "I'm just not interested in you."

Dudebro: "IM MELTING IM ME LTING U FRIENDZONING BITCH. THE FRIENDZONE IS IN SATAN'S ASS CRACK. THAT'S SO GAAAAYYY."

noun:
The location of the female heart where she sentences male friends romantically interested in her. Here, they will be subject to torment as they helplessly watch her jump from man to man, and never have their own chance. Usually one is condemned to the friendzone for not making a move on the girl in question in time. Also, it can be used as an excuse for the woman to gently let down a man she has no interest in. One can tell he is in the friendzone when she says "you're too important to me, I couldn't risk our friendship for a relationship." Whether or not she is telling the truth becomes irrelevant at this point. If anything to that effect is said, one can tell he's been sentenced to an indefinite term in the friendzone. Note that escaping the friendzone (which is heavily guarded) is very difficult and even if one manages to escape, the relationship will be forever marred and altered.
"Dude, she told me I was too important to her to risk a relationship. That's deep."
"Bro you're an idiot. You just got friendzoned."

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.
------------------------------------------------

Example:

"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..."

"..."

FRIEND ZONED.
