I talked to two guy friends who have been in ten year friendships w a girl. They are in love with them, the girl will flirt, they will sit on their lap etc. but no sex and they won't date them. So if you are okay for a friend why freeze out dating
I wrote a hub about this; there are so many factors to consider. The person flirting could likely be a game player and they just like the power they have over someone. And those guys seem to want what they can't have and should move on.
Truthfully I am about to put someone in the friend's zone just because its less drama:) I didn't want to write a hub as theier are several people that I know that are in this situaton. I thought if I knew the rules and boundaies I could help more

I think that friend zone is okay..but I haven't been there because I can keep things seperate and I don't let myself develop feelings...well except once...but I don't know what that is or was or if we are even still friends. Friend zone is no sex
If someone has put you in what I like to call the Zone (and lucky never to be in) are there boundaries and rules? I wouldn't assume friends with benefits is friend zone. As for friends to soulmate, I think it could work but not often
friends with benefits is not considered part of the friend-zone. FZ is all about unmet desires.
That's exactly what I thought! There is friend's with benefits which to me is a step up from the FZ, but when you add benefits you don't get attached or you stop. What if both are having sex and both have feelings? To me its dating but they say no
No, a (FWB) would not be considered the same as a platonic friend. When I say "friend" I mean someone you never considered dating let alone have a sexual attraction. If someone is "relationship/dating material" you don't put them in Friend zone.
Dashing scorpio, the wierd thing is they both have feelings, they both have sex, one says they are only friends but wants to date in the future and the other is claiming its FZ...its more than FWB and not dating...I wish I had known it existed lol
I do believe someone can say let's be friends first and it actually does not mean that I don't see you as being the one. Just saying, well I guess some of us are not the norm. Giggles.
No you are right but its when they actually say I will never see you more than a friend

I luckily haven't been in that zone. I have a good friend that is and has been for ten years. I was nosy and asked if you at least get benefits and he said no, it would be worth it that way. I assume that if you are in the zone you don't have sex
