Here are 5 ways to check ‘Am I in the Friendzone’
Have you ever wondered why things aren’t working out with the person you are interested in romantically? Is it possible that your crush sees you only as a friend and does not wish to reciprocate your romantic feelings? If this is the case, then you have landed yourself in the dreaded friendzone.
What is the friendzone? It is a state where one person has romantic inclinations but the other person sees them as just a friend. The friendzone can be heartbreaking for the person with romantic inclinations, but there is little to be done about it. If you wish to escape the friend zone and do better for yourself, it is important to first accept the bitter truth.
To do that, you need to come to terms with the fact that you have been friend-zoned. It is important to recognize the signs to help figure out if you are in the friendzone. So read on.
She Openly Discusses Her Sexual Attraction For Other Boys
- One of the biggest telltale signs of being friend-zoned is that your love interest openly discusses their crushes with you. She is not being insensitive, it is just that she only sees you as a friend and doesn’t have the faintest idea that you find her attractive and want to be in a relationship with them.
The fact that she finds other people attractive but not you, says a lot about the sorry state you are in.
She Doesn’t Make An Effort to Look Good For You
- We won’t put in too much effort into dressing up if it’s only for a lazy Saturday afternoon with a couple of friends, right? The same goes for someone you are attracted to but they see you just as a friend. If the person does not dress up nicely and meets and greets you in a way too casual attire, they see you as nothing more than a friend or acquaintance.
If your crush is not putting in any effort to look good for you, they are not trying to attract you at all. This is enough of a sign that they don’t find you sexually attractive.
She Sets You Upon Dates
- Your crush takes much interest in your love life and is always trying to set you up with other ‘cute girls’. She genuinely wants you to have a happy love life, but not with them. If your crush is possessive about you and wants you for herself, she wouldn’t be thrilled with the idea of you being with someone else.
However, if the inverse happens, then beware that she sees you just as a friend.
She Sees You As Her Last Resort
- Has your crush asked you to marry her? Yayyy! But did she add the clause that if you are both unmarried by the age of 40, only then you will marry each other? Big bummer! If such a pact has been made between you guys then you should know that she sees you as a last resort for her chance of having a companion.
She has no intention of marrying you before that and she is keeping her options open till the big 4-0.
She May Have Called You A Brother
She has referred to you as a brother on more than one occasion, but you ignored it and hoped she didn’t mean it. Well, the bad news is that she feels so comfortable around you due to the lack of sexual chemistry that she sees you as her brother.
