21 Ladies Admit They’ve Been Friend Zoned and It Sucks


I really liked this one guy in high school. We had several classes together and always talked about everything. I thought everything was going great so I expressed my feelings. Turns out he was gay. Like already had a boyfriend and I was entirely oblivious gay.


I was really good friends with this guy in high school. I joined track just so I could hang out with him more. We would talk on the phone for hours and he would always sit next to me on the long bus rides back from track meets. I told him finally that I liked him in junior year and he asked me to junior prom making it a big deal. I was assuming that since I told him and he asked me to junior prom we would be a thing after but once school ended he fell off the face of the planet. Then I find out from a mutual friend that he got himself a girlfriend who could “wear heels.” I'm pretty tall for a girl so I don't wear heels, so yeah that happened.


In college I became friends with a guy, developed feelings for him, gathered enough courage to tell him and he friend zoned me. We remained really close and a year later he confessed his love for me but I no longer felt the same way.


I really liked a guy in jr high but he wanted nothing to do with me. I got over it eventually and he turned into a giant douche sometime after moving out of state.


Freshman/sophomore year, I really liked this guy and we were very close friends. I'm not gorgeous or anything, but I'm not obscenely ugly. He friend zoned me for an obese girl.
