I have a lot to say, so I had to reblog this because replying wasn’t going to let me finish all my smart thoughts.
The act of rejecting someone romantically even though they are your friend happens, yes, but “friendzoned” is so often used by people who think they deserve the romantic love of a friend automatically for reasons like “I make you laugh” “I help you out” “We always have fun,” etc. These, to me, are often areas that friends should excel at anyway. The idea that friendship alone should be a good enough reason for anyone to not reject someone romantically is childish, selfish, narcissistic, juvenile and petty. This person is probably not a good friend anyway.
So, I suppose friendzoning exists, but it is neither positive or negative. It just happens because people happen? Like duh? So anytime someone goes “oh man, you got friendzoned!” I have to struggle to not roll my eyes. Oh, wait, I don’t struggle because I do roll my eyes in the biggest way possible.
Sometimes people don’t want to be with someone. And sometimes that changes! Sometimes people need to be with someone not good for them to learn things about themselves and life and love. Love isn’t an on/off switch, and neither should friendship.
