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.

The friendzone is a pshychological place in which you put yourself when you behave like a friend with the person you like, because you don't have the courage to behave otherwise.

It's the point when a girl decides that you're her friend, you're no longer a dating option. You become this complete non-sexual entity in her eyes, like a brother, or a lamp.
Guy 1: "Man I want her back!"
Guy 2: "Then why don't you ask her out again?"
Guy 1: "She said she just wants to be friends."
Guy 2 "Damn, she just put you in the friendzone! I feel bad for you bro."

Is a misogynistic term used by males who befriend females for the soul purpose of getting in their pants, but are unable to because the female is either uninterested, dating someone already, or has some other reason.

A person who uses this term usual feels victimized because the girl doesn't dish out, and the female is characterized as being the bad guy for not reciprocating his feelings.
Guy 1: For 2 years I've listened to her problems, comforted her, took care of her when she was sick, been her friend...But she still won't dump her douche boyfriend even though I am clearly better for her. I'm stuck in the friendzone

Guy 2: I know that feel bro, girls are bitches sometimes

When, usually a guy, approaches a female that he likes for a hang out session. The girl agrees and they start hanging out. Since there has been no clear definition to the relationship set up one, in most cases the guy, has stronger feelings.

When the girl expresses platonic feelings for the guy, the guy expresses three reactions:

1. What did you think this was?! I drove you to place and got you this. You owe me. You led me on!
2. Oh cool no worries we can be friends. Then bitterly complains for years to come that he is better for her despite that fact she is an autonomous human who is capable of making her own descions, and even if she is dating a bad person he is not helping her for her own happiness, it is to get with her himself.

3. The most healthy option. "I see, you and I are at different stages. I don't think I can hang with you as I don't see you as a friend. I'm going to step away and reevaluate myself, then come back and see if we can be real friends."
Oh gods she put me in the friendzone. I mean I asked her to hang out when she was already dating someone, but she should see that I am better and she should dump that guy for me.
