10 Dreaded Signs That Scream You Are In The Forbidden Friendzone

Friendzone – the term is enough to send chills down any guy’s spine. There’re so many victims that I heard a group of guys had filed a petition to list it as a punishable offence (I just made it up right now but I am sure I hear some cheers)… 😉

And because precaution is better than cure- here’s a checklist that will help you know for sure if you are trespassing in the friendzone or are stuck in the rut like you were born there… take a look:

1. The go-to call

You’re totally her go-to call for every damn thing except when you want. I mean she is off limits romantically but she can even call you to help you pick which dress will look so hot on her that she will surely get laid. Oh, is that her calling? F**k your LUCK!

2. Will I ever find someone LIKE you?

If she uses this sentence often enough, you’ve been friendzoned successfully. I mean, friggin LIKE you but not you. Go find a new bomb to blow your pea-sized brains out or a new bae to blow your…ahem. This one is gone for good.

3. Too cool with you

If she doesn’t give a damn about how she behaves around you- being not so fidgety, not so conscious, you’re deep in the friendzone. Girls will be girly when they can get the whiff of the slightest chemistry!

4. Makeup, who cares!

If you have a friend who is obsessed with makeup but ends up spending time with you in well-oiled hair, tightly tied in two ponies, her comfy pajamas and a T-shirt that can boast of a spaghetti stain from two weeks before, tadaa, FRIENDZONED.

5. Shopping partner

If you have tagged along to the malls while she picked up lipstick shades that looked the same to you or even her lingerie, don’t be too proud of your versatility. The fact that she never wore any in your presence should be your just qualified for the friendzone.

6. The phone recharge dude

How many times have you recharged her phone blowing  half your pocket money on her phone bills? Especially when she rarely calls you because she is too busy calling the hot guy she has a crush on. Do I need to add anything?

7. Tissue, please

How often does she cry on your shoulder and your shirt ends up being the tissue she can blow her nose on? But, breaking news – when her heart is healed, we go back to basics again. Of course, never be catching the feelings. *yeah bro, hugs*

8. Nail paints! WTF

I am going to JUDGE you if you ever did this! I mean crazy f**k. Did you ever sit down and paint her nails? God bless you, good soul. May your soul rest in peace.

9. You’re like my girlfriend

This is a lost cause and you’re a wounded soldier. If she has called you her girlfriend, the deal is sealed and your fate is dead. Welcome friendzone.

10. Yo Bro!

If you thought that being in a friendzone is the worst thing to have happened to you, be her bro and know what it feels. Being in a friend zone allows you to lust for her even though love becomes a one way traffic but be bro zoned and oh boy!!

Sorry for the burns, guys but I totally feel you..BRO! 😛

I am a misfit software engineer who left her work in the corporate world to pursue the insatiable quest to write. A freelance worker by the day, I choose to dream with eyes open wide. I have conversations with myself where I talk of the possibilities that life can hold. Too many wishes made on empty starless nights ensure that there are various dreams yet to be lived. I am working my way as I am on a quest to find myself. The greatest journeys are indeed the ones that lie within. I am yet to live my story because right now, the book is full of too many apostrophes and too many commas. The words are jumbled until the right one fits the puzzle. I don't believe in perfection because too many times, it is imperfection which paints the perfect story. I am verbose and I aim at living life in full swing until a speed breaker curbs the tantalizing pace with which I wish to conquer the dreams that would otherwise be too big for the not-so-tiny shoes I wear. Blessed with a lot of chubby fat, I love going the extra mile to conquer my extra dreams with an extra advice after all, we all love a little extra. A die-hard shopaholic, you can often find me laughing on serious stuff inappropriately at wrong times (unintentionally).
