When someone plays the friend zone waiting to make a move.
Friendzoning that girl isn't going to get you laid brah!
Girls arent machines you put kindness coins into waiting for sex to fall out.

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.

The friendzone is a terrifying place for young men, as it resides deep in Satan's ass crack. When a young man attempts a romantic/sexual relationship with a woman and is rejected due to her disinterest, he dramatically exclaims that he is in the friendzone. The woman insists that they are 'just friends' but the young man cannot comprehend, as the dating pool has always looked like an arcade to him, and women the machines that you insert kindness coins until sex or a relationship falls out.

Then the man blames the woman for his inability to land a date/girlfriend/someone to cradle his balls. 3 magical symbols appear, to guide him into the friendzone. First, his fedora descends from the heavens, embellished with naked ponies. Then, it starts raining Monster drink, and the man is soaked in the presence of excessive sugar and whining. Finally, he emits a warning call (most likely by trolling on Reddit) and finally the friendzone swallows him.

We are not sure what happens in the friendzone itself, but the faint echoes of "I'm a nice guy" can be heard all the way from the ass crack of Satan. It's truly a terrifying place, where one can lament about other women's shortcomings and call them "bitches, sluts and whores" when the whining just won't cut it.
Woman: "I think we should be friends."

Woman: "I'm just not interested in you."

"Friend zone" describes the way most women stop seeing a male friend as dating material after a certain amount of time has passed, even though she might have begun dating him had he acted differently when they first met. -see example

-being "friendzoned" does not have to mean something negative in nature, it is simply a word to label the common situation of a male is only seen as a friend in the eyes of a female come the time he confesses his feels for her, which is completely ok, by no means does the male friend feel he is intitled to be with said female(unless they are an assholes), everyone obviously has the right to reject who they wish, but that does not mean the male has no right to feel rejected and inadequate, especially in situations where said female chooses to be with another man of which the male friend feels is not appropriate for said female, for whatever reason, such as opposing males personality(taking advantage of her and such). its mostly based on social norms and essentially stereotypes of male and female interaction. Of course this is not always the case, it is possible for a female to become "friendzoned" as the roles are simply reversed, though it is less common as guys are more in the position of asking a girl to be with him (a social norm). I personally dislike like the reality of social norms, but that does not mean they are not blatantly obvious, more so when observing rather than participating.
John meets Mary. Mary thinks "This guy seems nice. He's quite funny and reasonably good looking". John doesn't ask Mary out, but they see each other at social functions. After a while, Mary stops seeing John as a nice guy who is quite funny and reasonably good looking, and just sees him as friend. John realizes he's secretly madly in love with Mary and begins trying to hang out with her more and more. Because John loves Mary, he stops behaving reasonably and starts doing anything just to spend time with her. Eventually, he summons his courage and confesses his love for her. But Mary just feels uncomfortable and confused. She doesn't want to lose her friend and she feels pressured by his feelings for her. To be honest, John's been a little needy and pathetic lately, hanging on her every word and catering to her every whim, and that's not really very sexy. John has been friendzoned by Mary.

John had a chance when they first met but he messed it up by not doing anything about it. When he finally got his act together, the friendship that developed actively interfered with his potential of getting Mary to go on a date with him.

(Noun) This is a metaphorical hell for men. It is typically initiated by a guy asking out a girl and her saying "Oh, I only see you as a friend.".
One common example of this is girls will reject a nice guy, and date douche-bags, all while complaining to the nice guy and saying things like "Why can't all guys be like you?".
Again, this is only a stereotype.

It is possible to escape the friendzone, but it is not easy. It is a long and difficult road.
Poor George, he was put in the friendzone by that girl he really liked.
