Keep on Trucking
Don’t get mad, and don’t let it phase you. Chances are, she didn’t friend zone you to make you mad. She honestly might have put you in there to see how you would react. A lot of guys get really pissed off when they’re friend-zoned, which would out you to her as being immature and only interested in one thing. If you want to date her, then you have to show her how patient you can be. Don’t let her know that your current status bothers you. Act like you’re perfectly content to be her friend. She’ll be grateful and your bond will strengthen because of it.
Be There for Her
The worst part about the friend zone is having to actually be a friend with her – that means giving advice and being a shoulder to cry on. She might go through boyfriend after boyfriend before she realizes how she feels about you, and you have to endure it all. Be strong, and keep being her friend through it all. When she has a bad breakup, let her cry on you. Comforting her will remind her how much you care about her, and she’s sure to remember that further down the line. If she wants to complain about her current boyfriend, definitely let her. Use this as an opportunity to point out all of his flaws and talk about how you would never do any of that stuff. You can have ulterior motives all you want. Just don’t let her find out.
Be Prepared to Let Go
If she’s friend-zoned you, then there might be the sad possibility that she just isn’t interested in you. If she has no interest in you, then no amount of optimism and support can change that. It’s not the end of the world; there are a billion other women who would love to be with you. Don’t spend time fighting for something you’ll never get. It takes too much out of you, and isn’t worth it in the end. If you’ve been trying to get her for a while now and she just isn’t getting the memo, it might be time to move on. Hey, maybe if you get a new girlfriend, she’ll suddenly realize how she feels about you and get viciously jealous. Even if she doesn’t, it’s not worth wasting years of your life being unhappy in your current situation. Not every woman is going to friend-zone you, so keep trying.
