We are sure most of you would have got friend-zoned at least once. You try to woo your lady love, only to find that she doesn’t like you back the way you do. But girls don’t friend zone you just like that. They have their reasons, multiple ones, for staying friends but saying no-no to the romance!
1. She’s not sure what kind of guy are yet
When guys get friend zoned, they assume it’s because they were too nice. Girls aren’t nearly as turned off by kindness as they assume. They are just not sure whether you’re their type or not, and it will take some time.
2. You are too familiar to her
If she says you remind her too much of an ex, or her brother, well, you probably look like them. You can’t blame a girl for being honest about that and not wanting to be in a relationship with you.
3. She might be liking someone else
If she’s interested in someone else, then there’s no room for you. Whatever you do, it will be futile as her interests are elsewhere. Be glad she’s still got you as her friend though.
4. She might be too busy right now
Girls do have other things too. Some are more oriented towards their career. And though they might like you now, they would keep you in the waiting zone for a while.
5. You both know each others’ history very well
When you know her past life pretty well, she will not want to involve you with her present. Also, knowing you and your behaviour quite well, she will know you won’t fit her version of boyfriend.
6. Sometimes it’s not about you, she’s dealing with her own stuff
It’s very possible that she’s friend zoning you because she friend zones everyone. Relationships are hard, and she might feel not ready to get into one yet.
7. Wanting to get to know you first
They just want to take things slow. They are actually giving you a chance to know them better and to let you know if you can handle all their drama. And trust me, friendship is the best way to get into the love zone with a girl.
8. Because she genuinely wants to be just friends
If you don’t see signs that point to any of the above reasons, it’s probably because she sees more friendship potential than anything . She’s letting you know that she doesn’t want to trade being friends for a relationship she can’t picture working out.
So now you the reasons. A girl will let you know any one of these signs clearly and fairly. Her first step in being a good friend is not wasting your time and giving you false hopes. Your next step is to not take it personally and try to be her best friend.
