10 Text Message Signs You Are Definitely In The Friend Zone

Guys like to throw the term “friend zone” around way too liberally. It is not a catch-all for every time a woman rebuffed your advances. Just because you had a conversation with a girl and you guys like the same movies doesn’t mean she should have sex with you. She’s also not “leading you on” if you split some fries at Wendy’s one time. Sometimes girls are just trying to be polite because polite is a cool thing to be, but it’s not polite to extend sex to every person you meet. That being said, the friend zone DOES exist. Some guys (AND GIRLS) will hang around, reading into every word of every text or every conversation hoping to find a glimmer of hope for a romantic relationship. Are you in that spot right now? Fear not! We are here to help. Here are ten text messages that are definitive signs you’re in the friend zone. It’s not a bad thing. You have a good friend you can talk to and hang out with whenever you want. Just realize it’s never going to be anything more than that, and you’ll be fine.
