One of my Facebook friends posted something about how most girls put the good guy into the “friend zone” and spend their time chasing after jerks instead of pursuing the good guys. *slaps face* What?!?!? OK, I get the whole “women only like jerks” thing. There is theory behind that. Good guys aren’t the only guys who fall into the friend zone. Women put all kinds of guys in the friend zone for a variety of reasons. One of the main reasons is that MEN DON’T TELL WOMEN HOW THEY FEEL. Instead, men expect us to guess and expecting us to guess usually lands them in the friend zone. Sure, he might come around a lot, wants to hang out with us even when our friends are around, and likes to listen to our problems and offer advice. That’s great. But those are things that FRIENDS do. I’m not saying don’t do those things because women like that. I’m just saying women are not mind readers and if you never step in and say something along the lines of “I like you more than a friend, maybe we should get to know each other on a romantic (not sexual) level,” how are we supposed to know that you want us to be more than friends? We won’t!
Moral of the story– If you don’t want to be in the friend zone, make your move! Tell the girl how you really feel about her and let her know that you want to be more than just a good friend to her. Afraid of rejection? You might as well live your life under a rock. In life you are going to get rejected, so learn how to deal with it. If she’s not interested, then you know where you stand and to move on.
