First of all, what is the definition of a friend zone? So friend zone is a term many guys and probably some girls use when they have been rejected, whether it’s straight out or unsaid. People would tend to claim that it was the other person fault or that they are friend-zoning the other, despite the facts that the person may really like the other as a friend, which is a false move to seeing as the other person believes they should fake feelings and be in a relationship.

But in a simple way, friend-zone is a happy place for a girl, because it is a place where a girl and a boy sit and talk about anything and get really friendly to each other. But for a guy, the friend zone is the worst place ever, especially when the guy likes the girl who always behaves like a just friend.
