Reasons Why the Friend Zone Is Actually a Great Place to Be

1. Friendship Is Precious and Nothing to Be Scoffed At. This isn’t the most exciting truth, but it is deeply important. Being told by any human being that they would like to be your friend should set your heart aglow rather than trigger complaints about a wounded ego and sense of rejection.

 2. The Friend Zone Helps You Lose Your Sense of Entitlement. Another important lesson from being friend zoned is that women don’t owe you their romantic affection, nor do they owe you sex. There is no rule of the universe that states that, as long as you have found a single woman who is friendly towards you and in whom you are interested, she must return your affections and eventually progress things to a romantic level.

 3. The Friend Zone Helps You Build Stronger Relationships. Learning to see women as fully fledged human being with their own desires, values and goals as opposed to romantic prospects walking around waiting to be “won” by a man is a plus for everyone. For women, it’s great because it means their full humanity is being acknowledged, and for you it’s great because you can start to view women as multitude-containing beings rather than two-dimensional girlfriends to be acquired, and that’s ultimately much more fulfilling.

 4. The Friend Zone Ensures You Don’t End Up In Relationships for the Wrong Reasons. Say things went the way you wanted them to: You pined for a woman, explained that you saw her as more than “just” a friend and that she’d led you to believe she felt the same way, and even though she has expressed no genuine romantic interest in you, she agrees to be with you because that’s how you want things to be. Does that sound good, being with someone who doesn’t actually desire you? No, it doesn’t – it sounds like a relationship that’s doomed to fail.
