Helloooooo! Last time I posted, I hinted at writing about the dreaded Friend Zone and also the possibility of starting a YouTube Channel. I finally did it! For those of you who want the advice wrapped up into a neat 5-minute package, here is the video:

And here’s the long version of Friend Zone advice…
She’s pretty, outgoing, and has a great smile. You guys met a while back, and over time, you’ve fallen for her. You’re not really sure how to go about moving forward and out of the platonic relationship you’ve begun, so you opt to drop subtle hints. Whether or not you are aware of it, SHE KNOWS. SHE KNOWS YOU LIKE HER.
Fiona won’t clue you into the fact that she knows you are being tortured with your unrequited love for her. Oh no. She will relish in it and drag it out as long as possible. She’ll keep you hooked with minor, semi-flirtatious gestures, but always remind you that you are indeed, like, total BFF’s. Women are taught that they are to be desired and sought out, so who are they to brush aside admirers? You give her the attention, and she takes it, without question.
Oh F***. You’re in the Friend Zone… now what? GET OUT, immediately. Become less available. Stop immediately returning her calls/texts. She’ll start to worry she’s losing one of her adorers.
At this point, she’ll start worrying about losing you. It will force her to think about whether she wants to be with you in a romantic relationship or not. When she realizes that she can’t forever keep you in the Friend Zone with her tactics, she’ll have to make a decision. If she doesn’t understand what’s going on, or fails to give you any kind of clear signals as to what the future may hold for you, then you’re going to have to take a leap of faith and tell her how you feel.
It sucks, but it has to be done. Otherwise, you’re gonna end up like this guy:
And here’s a bit of harsh reality. If you’ve been in the Friend Zone for a long time, and you haven’t hooked up at all, you’re probably NEVER going to get out. It’s more than likely that she doesn’t have a strong enough physical attraction to you. If you have hooked up (drunken nights or whatever) at least a couple times, then you have hope!
My advice is to do whatever it takes to get out of the Friend Zone. Loving someone without the same in return is just heartbreaking. To willingly continue putting yourself in a situation like that is bordering on masochism.
Of course, this is just my opinion, and all situations/friendships are different.
I hope you guys liked this post and/or video!!! Remember to check back next Wednesday!
