Having all the responsibilities of a boyfriend with none of the benefits. Seen as a dick in a jar for women when she can't fuck someone better.
Mike had a crush on Kelly for years, but being in the friend zone prevented him from getting anywhere with her.

Primary definition:
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.

Secondary definition:
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)

Friendalia Zonalis... Also known as the 'Friend Zone'... a disease plaguing men all over the globe. Many men are or have been infected by the disease.

What is it? Well, basically, it is a state the man has been put into by a woman after a failed attempt to start a relationship.

What does this mean? It means you're fucked. It means that "hey you're a great guy!!!," but they're really thinking "But i'm gonna hold out for someone greater." After everything is all said and done, they'll decide they want to keep you around because you're a "nice guy."

Man: Hey, I care about you a lot, and I think we should be together...

Girl: Oh, you're so sweet!!! you're the greatest and sweetest person ever, but I can only see you as a friend (friend zone)...

Man: Suggggggit...

When either a guy or a girl puts alot of time and energy into wanting to date someone but end up getting false hope and the common lines like "its complicated" or " i love you so much as a friend and i do not want to lose that bond" bottom line your just a friend. Usually that might make you feel like a gay confident and you will just suffer more while hanging around with the person you love. Often happens to nice guys who finish last.
john i am sorry but I like you more as a friend (welcome to the friend zone)

Basically when you fail to really impress a girl you end up in this shit hole. Its not quite hell but its not near heaven, its basically limbo, basically put you've got a football star who gets both his knees shot out and thats your comparison, very similar to your dogs dead but you can keep it if you want. See "I dont like you like that" and "lets just be friends". Woman's way of making trolling. Yes I have been trolled.
Friend-zone examples:

Bob: Hey Casey want to go out? *braces for the friend-zone*
Casey: Bob I don't like you like that I'm sorry lets just be friends
Bob: sure.....
Bob: *thinking*: shit shit shit i'm getting the fuck out of this
Bob: Yeah Casey friend-zoned me, definatly just wasted 4 weeks of my life and a good chunk of cash......
Tom: trolled!
Bob: Yeah....

A word that describes terrible fear, petrifying... Death. The 'friendzone' is a place just around the corner from hell, man and boys are sent there when they are rejected by a female character in there life whom they offered their love and support.
Boy: Please be my girlfriend, I think you're beautiful and amazing in every way, the way you smile makes me weak in the knees.. So what do you say?
Girl: I think we're just friends.

Boy1: Didn't you hear? Marcus asked Julia out and she said "we're just friends."
Boy2: Respects to our nigga in the friendzone.
