When a member of the opposite sex (usually one you want to hook up with) declares you to be "just a friend", thereby ruining all potential chances of sex.

A euphemism for rejection due to unattractiveness and lack of confidence most often employed by internet dwellers. Actual friendzoning does exist though in just about every comedic movie made in the 90s.
The girl I've been stalking on facebook has never talked to me. Totally friendzoned.

a common place for 16 y.o virgins whom got rejected by his/her crush, here people either progress through the levels of the friend zone (0-100) 100 being the boyfriend /girlfriend or finish high school while still a virgin,then he/she loses it at a marshmello concert.
boy/girl:"hey listen i really like you, i was wondering if you'd like to go out with me."

crush(girl):" i like you too as a brother"
crush (boy):"maybe later? "

friend:"damn bro you got friendzoned"

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.

Basically a verb form of friendzone: To put someone who loves you and wants to DATE you in the zone of just friends, like if you were friendzoned, then you basically got rejected.
