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.

“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
'I've been locked in the friend zone with her since highschool!'

The term a Guy or Girl uses when rejected by someone they fancie/like/love etc... Generally used to obtain sympathy.
The notion in its self was probably conceived by someone wallowing in self pity after being "nice" didn't get them sex (which undermines the point of been nice) they also see people succesfull at getting relationships with women as "Jerks" etc... when in fact they are just jealous.

Being nice to a girl doesn't mean they owe you sex, and if that's all you want from them then your not the "nice guy" your in fact a "Jerk"

The girl/boy isn't "using you" when in the friend zone. you are free to leave whenever you want but they probably do stuff for you to that you don't notice seen as your so obsessed with having sex with them like help cheer you up when your down, they might do you a favor every now and then like any other friend of the same sex.

If some other person gets the one you like don't think you are the only person that has true feelings for them. your feelings are no different than anyone elses

There is probably people you have freind zoned so dont act so innocent either
