Friend Zone Signs: 11 Obvious Signs You Are Officially In Her Friend Zone
"You are cute!"
Whenever you try to tell her about your feelings, she laughs at it and says that you are cute.
It implies that she is not serious about you and you have only got the importance of a friend and nothing more than that.
If starts to ignore that you are flirting with her, it is a clear sign that you are in the friend zone.
"You’re so unfunny!"
Even as friends, most girls will laugh at a guy’s jokes. This is just a completely normal social interaction. If your crush laughs hysterically at your jokes, do not immediately jump to the conclusion that they are crushing back on you.
But on the other hand, if your lady friend NEVER or hardly ever laughs at your jokes, now would be the time to start worrying that you might not even be on a friend’s level. Maybe more like acquaintances.
Tag along others when you invite her
Let us clarify: This does not include group outings. But if every time you make plans to meet up, and he/she brings a long one or two friends, that's suspect. No one likes a block. If you're the object of his/her affection, they won't want anyone else around. Period.
Does that particular friend of yours invite others along when you ask her out? If yes, then this is one of the biggest signs you're in the friend zone. If she does really like you, she would want to be with you alone. However, if she's afraid to go out with you alone because she likes you a lot, then notice where she sits when you guys are out in a group. If she shares a seat or couch with you, she does like you.
You’re her go-to buddy
You don’t need to fill the role of wingman or woman to realize your “friend” truly sees you as nothing more than a buddy. While having a friendship as the foundation of a romantic relationship is great, there’s a fine line between being friends in addition to partners and just chummy pals.
In most relationships, at least during the first few months, people are usually aiming to show their best self. A person who has put you in the friend zone, however, cares about no such thing. Mowing down an order of wings at the pub together is fine, but disclosing the details of what it does to their stomach later on indicates they’re not that concerned about impressing you.
She's not on her toes around you
Where there's no tension, there's no romance. A woman who is trying to curry your favor will be intently interested in everything you say and do. In turn, this will lead to a certain amount of suspense. She'll be constantly wondering, "Does he like me?" and, "What is he going to do next?" and her nerves will show themselves in her behavior. If she's perfectly at ease around you, that's not necessarily a good thing.
Next time you're at the bar with the object of your desire, pay close attention to her mannerisms. Is she showing some nervous excitement, or is she completely at ease? If she's not carefully choosing her words and showing positive body language toward you, like playing with her hair or fidgeting, don't count on having breakfast together.
She's too comfortable around you
Is she the type of person who texts or calls you whenever something exciting or even boring happens to her? Do you notice that this girl you admire can tell you almost everything? Because if so, you might want to back off on making advances on her because unfortunately for you, that is an obvious sign that you are in the friend zone.
If one likes another in a romantic way, they'll be a little mysterious when it comes to their personal matters. They will only show the brilliant and exciting side of their life because they want to impress the guy they admire. A girl who has feelings for a guy will hide a lot about herself and would feel uncomfortable to turn talkative in front of him. If she does the opposite to you, it just means she treats you as a friend she can trust, but you're not really a boyfriend material for her.
She avoids being seen with you
While out, she avoids being seen with you so people don’t get the wrong idea. Maybe you’re wondering to yourself why you see so much of her throughout the day, but never at night. She is always busy when you ask her to the mall, or to grab a bite to eat.
But the next day in class or at work, she is Miss Chatty Box with you again. At least you know, she’s yours only till it’s time to leave for the day.
She's always trying to set you up with other people
Now, this should be a pretty obvious red flag, but you’d be surprised. This more or less applies to those who’ve not yet entered the physical part of the relationship. You’ve been friends until this point, but now, you’re hoping for something more. Before you actually realized this, though, it seemed normal to suggest potential partners for your friend. But rest assured that, in this tricky dynamic, it’s better to be brutally honest.
The next time your “friend” makes a comment in passing about how well you and their coworker would hit it off, tell your friend how you’re feeling. That’s the only way to know for sure if you’re both on the same page, instead of beating around the bush.
She gushes over other men
Isn't this an obvious sign? Yes, it is. But the capacity of the lonely male mind for denial is staggering. So this still needs to be said.
She may talk lovingly of an ex-boyfriend or giddily discuss another guy's attractive qualities. Maybe she's just always commenting on how hot the guys on TV are. If you sense that she's on the prowl, it should clue you in that the guy next to her — you — might not be the man of her dreams.
You're his/her therapist
It's great when your relationship hits that point when you can really open up to somebody; we're in no way knocking that, because it means you're becoming intimate. Still, the key here is balance: Are you always the one picking up the pieces when he/she has a bad day at work? How many times have you provided advice on how to deal with a psychotic roommate? And the real tall-tale sign: Has he/she asked how you are in, well, ever?
If you're nodding along to this right now, consider yourself a friend... and a competitive hourly rate.
"You are an awesome friend!"
Maybe it's time for you to escape the friend zone when you always hear from your crush that you are such an awesome friend. Keep in mind that when a girl takes extra effort to remind you that your friendship is too important for her, it is her way of sending you the message that you should stop hoping that you two will ever become more than friends and that you should give up altogether on making a move on her.
It can also be her desperate call to show you that she does not want to lose you as a friend. She does not want to reach to the point where she has to completely push you away for you to stop.
She just is not interested in you in the way you wish she was, and the faster you come to this realization by using these 11 clear signs you’re in a girl’s friend zone, the sooner you can move on, or stay just friends without any secret agendas. Just book yourself a one-way ticket to the Friend Zone already and no, there is no need (or way) to buy a return ticket.
