Yeah, I don't know what's going on with you and that guy, but I'm not him, so chill the fuck out.


Or what? You'll jump to conclusions about various posters assuming you have a clue what their posting history is when you very clearly dont? You'll decide you don't like me and try to troll me back? You'll casually ignore me, occasionally dropping passive aggressive comments about how you're ignoring me?

Chill the fuck out or what? You're the one who got all aggro at me brah.

But the whole "friendzone" thing does make one wonder if we are all entitled in a general sense to romantic love at some point in our lives. I think that's an interesting question, at least if you believe in concepts like destiny.


it's an interesting question with an easy answer: no, we're not.

No, men just snivel about it like it puts their ittle peeners in a vice more.


Women never snivel about being put in the friend zone? If it applies to both sexes, I figure there's about equal time spent snivelling around both, no? Or were you just sneering again?

Also, 'peener in a vice.' Were you...?


"Men's relationships with their female friends may be fuelled by an undercurrent of sexual attraction regardless of whether they are single but the feeling is not mutual, a new study suggests."

It's not equal, men are far more likely to be attracted to their female friends.

Obviously there are exceptions. I had a crush on a guy friend for a long time, and it made me awfully sad that he didn't like me. But it's not like I was going to stop being friends with him because I somehow felt like I was entitled to date him -- after all, I became fond of him in the first place because of his positive qualities.

I wonder what the correlation is between this and masturbation, especially in adolescents.

This image is as offensive as if I had said "What if I told you, Men are not ATM's that you can access by showing a little cleavage."


I don't hear women complaining about guys not giving them money for showing cleavage.
But I know a fuckload of guys who think women owe them more than "Friendzone" for being treated nicely.

PS. I like how people who don't like that pic repost it in here by quoting me.

Amazing! There are people you don't know? Almost as if you have selectively hand picked your own social circle? Hot damn I've been put in my place.

Gold diggers are a dime a dozen and the fact that you don't know them doesn't mean anything.

As far as this friendzone bs goes, I don't post here with any frequency so I don't expect people to take any real note of what I'm saying, but for the love of God why the hell are all the people with an iota of reason being shot down by rabid regulars.

The friend zone is a concept that predates any stupid meme you may have picked up on while surfing reddit. It simply means that a person male or FEMALE (and trust me I've met many females who've been friendzoned) who finds themselves romantically interested in someone who doesn't feel the same way about them. THE END.

This sense of entitlement that you have tacked on to the end is ridiculous. Are there people who are resentful of their situation? Hell yes. Are there people who are resentful of any situation which they can't control? YES!. If you have been craving a doughnut while at work only to find that the person in front of you took the last doughnut that doesn't make it their fault for not catering to you. Likewise they have no right to be mad at you for being upset that you didn't get your damn doughnut. You are both entitled to your own feelings and if you want to go home and bitch at your roommate/boyfriend/girlfriend/spouse or even your damn dog you have every right to. Stop making the assumption that everyone is a sex crazed asshat.

Everyone has a right to feel, however, they feel. Just because you don't agree with it doesn't make you better it makes you inconsiderate. Monkey you are a prime example of someone who lacks all empathy for people who don't agree with your sentiments. I've heard less one sided asshattery from the Westburro Baptist Church than the crap you are spewing out. This being the internet I seriously doubt it's a true reflection of your character but it is stupid and childish.

Now Manipulating people because of a sense of entitlement is another issue all together. It's not a friendzone thing it's an asshole thing.

As far as the debate on child porn Neither of you see where each other are coming from because you are all on the defensive about the subject. General recap Child Porn is bad. If we can all agree on that then leave the other people alone. As far as supporting pedophilia goes, your comments on the internet aimed towards a person who agrees that child porn is bad is not going to help the situation. So turn y our efforts elsewhere.

So...who fucking asked you?

You agree with them so in your eyes they're being unfairly shot down.
What makes you different from every other douchebag who signed up about the same time as you to whine about any hints of feminist thought in the comic?

Your complaints and ill-informed opinions have been noted, I hope you feel better getting that off your chest. Please be assured no action will be taken on your suggestions though.

i see Mystchevious roundly misunderstands how this whole "friendzone" thing is commonly used. because it is, in fact, all about manipulation. hence complaining about "being put in the friendzone," as a thing that was done to you, as a thing we should feel bad about, as a thing that the person who "put you there" should not have done, as a thing that the person who "put you there" should feel guilty for doing.

it's almost as if Mystchevious hand-picked their social circle to create a situation where they wouldn't have to hear how people commonly use the concept.

and then came along and dismissed it all as "bs" while whining about "one-sided asshattery"

FRIENDSHIP BURGERS ARE BEST BURGERS

Also the reason I remember that link and always will is because it's #386 and my nerd brain goes "ERMAHGERD IT'S THE ONE WITH THE INTEL CHIP NUMBER"

Hey, the friendzone exists. But the problem with it is elongating it. Seriously, when I hear about guys that stay in it so they "might have a chance"... well, that's reaaaaally sad.

To me, the friendzone is the final step: once you get there there's no point of continuing in it. She's not attracted to you, period. Just give it up, being brotherly nice to her won't change it.

The problem is not when it happens once or twice. I think I lost the count about the 12th time or something like that.
