Webster defines Friendzone as “A situation in which a friendship exists between two people, one of whom has an unreciprocated romantic or sexual interest in the other.” I dont know but I find it hilarious. Hilarious because ‘Ek Tarfa Pyaar’ (One sided love) is still a concept with meaning in it and there is no loser in it. But in friendzone what about the person with unreciprocated romantic or sexual interest? In the by-lanes of Delhi, such a person shall be easily written off as a – “Ch****ya”. Poor Soul!
‘I am sorry I consider you as a friend, Just a Friend’ – This sentence sends a chill down the spine to almost all of us. To some it shifts focus to their fingertips to count the number of times they have encountered entering the friendzone in real life.
Friendzone is an epidemic. It happens to everyone and everywhere. However our society has made it a more of masculine thingy, whereas the fact is, even girls tend to get friend zoned. Girls getting friendzoned can be attributed to many reasons. Most common being a guy getting turned off by the fact that the girl thinks you of more than a friend. She’s attracted to you and hence cuts down the chase. The other reason being the guy simply doesn’t reciprocate or he doesn’t love your personality for a girlfriend. Other obnoxious reasons could be you went out with his friend, he’s not ready for commitment or simply the sparks aren’t there.
The epidemic of friendzone has no vaccine. However it can be prevented by accepting the fact that there’s only friendship that can happen between the two of you.
I think the whole friend/bro-zone thing is a misnomer created by young people who don’t understand how “real” relationships work. Ideally you meet a person, have common interests/ideas and build a friendship. If there is mutual attraction between the two, this friendship can evolve into a romantic relationship. People who don’t get this concept want to skip the friendship portion and jump right into a romantic relationship, and when this feeling isn’t reciprocated, but the other person does enjoy your company and wants to hang out, then they are “friend/bro-zoned” in their opinion. Perhaps the epidemic of friendzone /bro-zone is only in the mind. Think and build your vote.
