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 her brother, or a lamp.
Friend1: Are you still with that girl?
You: We're just friends.
Friend2: A moment of silence for our brother in the friend zone.

When you get rejected and they only want to be friends. That's doesn't mean they think you are too nice :)
You: hey I like you. Wanna go on a date?
Her/him: no sorry. We can be friends tho
You have been put in the friend zone
The friend zone is a made up concept, it was created by nice guys and girls in an attempt to downplay the person who turned them down. If you become friends with someone just so you can get in their pants, you are manipulating that person. When those people who believe the friend zone exist get rejected, they blow up and threaten the person who politely turned them down.

A place where Aphrodite condemns the souls of people with dating double-standards.
Bob: "I can't believe Ashley (skinny, popular girl) put me in the Friend Zone! I was nice to her all this time, and she still says we're just 'friends!' But friendship is what a a romantic relationship is built on!"

Kaylee (overweight, average-looking girl): "Well Bob, you and me are friends too, and I'm single."

Bob: I... uh... erm..... but I don't wanna ruin our friendship Kaylee.

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.
