What you attain after you fail to impress a woman you're attracted to. Usually initiated by the woman saying, "You're such a good friend". Usually associated with long days of suffering and watching your love interest hop from one bad relationship to another. Verb tense is "Friend-ed".
"I spent all that money on a date, just to find out she put me in the Friend Zone(said with eerie echo)."

"You know that hot girl I've been talking to? She just Friend-ed me."

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."

The friend zone is the mythical place where a man is put into despite known/unknown sexual/romantic feelings for a woman. Everybody then thinks of the woman as a bitch or rude, even though she really just doesn't have any romantic/sexual feelings for the man, but thinks he's a great person and wants to be friends with him.
Alex: Oh man, Sheila just friendzoned you so hard! The friend zone sucks! She's such a bitch, any girl would be lucky to have you!
Ted: I know, man. I irrationally hate her now.
Sheila: Ted is such a great guy, I'm lucky to be friends with him!
Cassandra: I know! Would you mind setting me up on a date with him?
Sheila: Sure! I think it would be great if he was in a relationship with someone! I would date him myself, but I don't have any romantic or sexual feelings for him. But you would make a great girlfriend!

A term often used in bitterness by men when women make the choice to not fuck someone. Often used by douchebags or people with Nice Guy Syndrome.
I went to the friend zone once to make some friends but it was just a bunch of angry mens' rights activists wearing fedoras.

When somebody, usually a male, gets needlessly offended by the fact that a girl isn't attracted to them romantically and/or sexually.

The female will then say something along the lines of, "I'd rather just be friends." This is apparently some sort of 'bitch move'.

Guy 1: "Did you hear about Sarah? I wasted two weeks on that bitch and she said she wanted to be friends!"

Guy 2: "Dude, you got friend zoned."

Guy 3: "Um, dude, she just doesn't have feelings for you. Get over it. She can't control who she's attracted to."

“The ‘friend zone’ is like the penalty box of dating, only you can never get out. Once a girl decides you’re her ‘friend,’ it’s game over. You’ve become a complete non-sexual entity in her eyes, like her brother, or a lamp.” - Ryan Reynolds in Just Friends
