Can men and women be friends after initial attraction? Are men more offended when friend zoned?

You meet someone and both express romantic interest in each other.He/She doesn't make an effort to date you but you still talk.You decide, hey, obviously this person isn't interested (that way) so you turn 100% friend and they make it clear they don't want that.You feel free to say hello or occasionally ask "hey, what's up/whatcha doing to see if your "friend" wants to hang out. Are men more offended than women to be put in the friend zone? Are men offended when a girl initiates hangouts like a buddy?Do men feel especially rejected? Are women equally upset about being in the friend zone?

    Question/scenario: If a man has an interest in the woman but does nothing to act on it and gets placed in the friend zone that's his fault. Men are only friends if they agree to be. If you call saying"baby girl how was your day." Lead=no friend zone.

    "They all say they have male friends, then admit that all of those male friends would be involved with them romantically if she gave the go-ahead." Very true!

    If a guy asked her out he's attracted to her! They're "friends" not by (his) choice.
