I am stuck in the “friend-zone with a girl I really like. How do I get out of the friend-zone, because I would like to ask her out…?
X says: “Being friend-zoned is heartbreaking. You can either try to get out or accept the fact that you’re in there. If you do try to get out, know that it might ruin your friendship if you guys don’t end up together. However, if you don’t try you might keep wondering ’what if…’ but at least your friendship would still be good. It all depends on you.”
Y suggests: “If you feel that you are being placed in the friend-zone, you’re probably there for a reason. Don’t be a creep and sneak your way out. If she likes you enough to be your friend, save yourself from the embarrassment and find someone else for romance.”
Z says: “It sucks being put into the friend-zone and I can promise you that it has happened to everyone at least once in their life. Some may say it’s impossible to get out of, but I’m here to tell you that with a few short steps, you can finally get the girl/boy you’ve been chasing after. First thing to do is figure out why you’ve been put into the friend zone. Figuring out how this person sees you plays a huge part in being categorized as just a friend. Many times, people are put into the friend-zone because they’ve been playing the role of a parent or adviser. Think about it, who wants to date someone that acts like their mom/dad? Nobody. So change the role you’ve been playing and tryto get that special someone to see you differently. Second, separate yourself from them. I know, it sounds a little weird but trust me, it’ll work out great. Your friend will realize how important you are to their life and stop taking you for granted. Lastly, confess your feelings! If you feel strongly about this person, then just tell them. You never know what they might say! In the end, if they don’t feel the same way then at least you can stop wondering. Also remember this, the best relationships come from being friends first, so don’t be afraid to take this risk.”
