Stuck In The Friendzone - April 25th 2013, 12:52 AM

Bleh, the friend zone.

So I've liked this girl forever. Like, FOREVER. And we're really good friends. But we're really in the friend zone. So I'm worried that if I ask her out, she'll just want to be friends.

I don't like her. I LOVE her.

Advice?

You are 13, there will be other people. And there's no such thing as the 'friend zone', you like a lady, she might not like you. Big fucking deal, get over it and move on.

Jeremy was a bit harsh, but honestly, he's coming from a good place of advice. She's not interested in being anything more than friends, and that's her right. She's of no obligation to like you back just because you have a closer relationship. I feel like people sometimes have this feeling of entitlement where they feel like if they spend a certain amount of time or emotional effort that automatically a relationship or sex should come out of it. Relationships don't add up your points and a certain amount add to a relationship. Sometimes, things just don't work out. At this age, you feel that it's the end of the world and she's the one. You've got over 15-20 years til you'll be thinking about settling down, open your mind. There are many more people to see and experiences to have; allow yourself to move on.

I think we've all been "friend zoned", but I do have to agree that you are still young. You will be introduced to so many people in your life and there will be others. Our feelings get more complicated and you're at a stage where hormones are everywhere and you're still evolving. Take what you're going through as a learned lesson. Not everyone can like us the way we like them. There will be times where people will like you and you won't like them. Believe me, it is not the end of the world. There will be people better than your friend, but even that takes time to meet those kind. Good luck!

You like this girl, she doesn't like you, welcome to life. It works out like that sometimes, and it hurts, but you've just got to roll with it. You're 13, that is really young, you've got more than enough time to find someone that it will work out with.

Love is a strong word. Sure you really like (or love) this girl, but there are a lot of other girls out there. You're still young and you have so much more ahead of you, so many more people to meet. Tell her how you feel and if she feels differently, Then it's not going to work out as more then a friendship. Just continue to move forward and meet others.
