I just wanted to post something today to make a week of being online. I remember coming across this on AskMen.com, and although I'm not a big fan of this site for multiple, I-don't-support-or-condone-misogyny reasons, I thought it was interesting advice (even for a girl even though it's obviously for a male audience, but hey! A girl can be in the friend zone too!). It's about the dreaded friend zone.

Check out this video about being in the friend zone. Just a note that the title of this video alludes to sexual encounters, but it also is applicable to being able to date someone or not. See it here:
What do you think? I'm not really sure how to go "from friend zone to end zone," but do you agree with these points? Ladies, how do you feel about these?? Guys, do these resonate at all?? Let me know, discuss below! As you can see in the comments, it's something a lot of people have an opinion about.
And thanks again for reading, keep it up!
Bonus: Here's a different, yet moving approach to the friend zone. Tell me what you think about it too:
Spread the love,
Update: So, when I mentioned that the "Friend Zone" term is contentious, I wasn't kidding. In an article entitled, "The 'Girlfriend Zone' Flips the 'Friend Zone' Myth on Its Head," it tackles some of the contentious issues with it, and also directly challenges the entire notion--including the victimization status that is often attributed to the person being rejected or ignored. It has some really good insights and arguments, and is well worth the read!
P.S. This is just funny:
