Find Your Exit from the Friendzone
Friendzone—situation in which a friendship exists between two people, one of whom has an un-reciprocated romantic or sexual interest in the other.
This situation isn’t beneficial to both parties and yet most of the times either one of them couldn’t care less to make a clearer line between them. As frustrating as it sounds, being in a friendzone and hoping for things to change is quiet exhausting, and to avoid that here are some tips for you to find your exit;
Be less available.
Being in love with your friend is just too natural for you to always be available for that person, so what you should do is the other way around. Let them realize that you won’t be there for them all the time and it should change the way they think about you.
If they don’t get the code that you’re actually like them then you don’t flirt enough and they must have seen you merely as a platonic friend. Flirt more and don’t make it sounds like a joke though.
The problem for being a friend for far too long, you’ll be in that position where you’re afraid of losing them over your feelings, so in this case you gotta make up your mind and chin up. Do not afraid to lose them because your feelings just matter the same. Let them know your genuine feeling, don’t push it forcefully but genuinely.
Hopefully you don’t have to be in this position cause that means your feelings in unrequited—however, if you that there’s no hope to go out from the friendzone, then you got no choices other than move on—at all cost.
Not every friendzone could get you to Love Rosie or Definitely, Maybe so before it’s too late, finding your own exit might get you to somewhere where you belong.
