Have you ever been friend-zoned? Well, then you definitely not know the true heartbreak. Imagine this situation. You are trying to get the person of your dreams to love you. Your efforts seem to pay off as you both grow real close. But then, they say something and your dream of a relationship is over. They say you’re the ‘Friend’ that they love. Well, that my friend, is called being ‘Friend-zoned’. And trust me on this; there is nothing wrong with that. Contrary to what you believe, being friend-zoned is not that bad.
Why Being Friend-Zoned Isn’t As Bad As You Think
- Well, reason numero uno is that you absolutely get an affirmative sign that you can move on. There is no use to keep your hopes high, right? Since you have a friendship, you can focus on having a relationship with someone else now. And hey, that might work out in a better way, right?
- Netflix and chilling seem more fun when it is with your friend. I mean, literally, you have a buddy for binge-watching Netflix series with you. There is nothing better than grabbing a beer and enjoying a good movie or TV show with your friend, am I right?
- You have your own wing man/woman. Who said losing a lover is hard? Well, of course, it is but you can be friends for life, right? Plus now they can set you up with their friends who are pretty much single
- You don’t have to impress them anymore. No pressure there. Now that you are friends for life, you can chill around and be yourself. That’s one of the perks you get
- They will never ever take you for granted. I mean, won’t you hate it if they came into a relationship half-heartedly and you both felt miserable? Well, being a friend is a hundred times better than that
- You get saved from spoiling your life. Well, an honest friend is so much better than having a dishonest girlfriend/boyfriend. So, while you didn’t get them, it is good that you didn’t get yourself fooled as well
- You can finally let go. The fact takes a little bit time to settle in. But when it does, you can finally be happy without bothering about anything else. You can enjoy your friendship
Be Friend-Zoned, Be Happy
