Anonymous asked: what are your feelings towards teh friendzone? do you think it exists? some people are saying its not even a thing and im interested to know your view after you reblogged the post about fuckzones (which i thought was brilliant by the way)
If we’re talking “person likes another person romantically but the other person doesn’t romantically like them back” then, yes, I think we could call that a friendzone. People are allowed to feel bummed out about being in the friendzone because they wish their romantic feelings would be mutual but they aren’t, however, people are NOT allowed to use the friendzone to pressure (or just bully) people into “giving them a chance”. The friendzone isn’t a concept people can use to manipulate and/or pressure other people into feeling sorry for them. The friendzone is a word that describes the relationship between two people, and it shouldn’t be anything more than that.
Personally, I feel that the friendzone isn’t a thing in my life at all because when I find out that someone has feelings for me that aren’t mutual, I grow increasingly uncomfortable around them and don’t want to be friends with them anymore (is this just me???). When the opposite happens, I don’t want to stay/become (just) a friend because I know that I would just be jealous forever and it would suck.
