How many feminists does it take to change a light bulb?
That's not funny!

It doesn't matter, feminists never change anything.

Guys who claim to be in the friendzone aren't mad because they don't get sex. They're mad because their affection isn't returned. They're frustrated because, despite treating their crush with decency, they don't get a return on their efforts, for whatever reason.

You sound like you frequent the "friend-zone"

Then they should find somebody else who will appreciate it instead of barking up the wrong tree.

Honestly, I'm getting real tired of both sides of this ****.

"Friend-Zoners": If you don't want to date this guy then don't ask him to hold your emotional baggage, it's unfair. Also, a note, that lame excuse "I don't want to risk our friendship" is ********! The friendship is now out the window, don't bother trying to put it nicely, you're crushing his dreams already just tell him the truth.

"Friend-zoned": No amount of pissing and moaning will fix this, it's ******. Now, you have 2 options. Either turn yourself into a god damned door mat hoping she realizes how great you are, or stop hanging out with her. I have been there before, truly speaking from the friend zone, twice. I have tested both of these and you know what, walking away felt a hell of a lot better. However, which ever path you choose don't go bitching about it, it happened, it's done, sure say you got friend zoned but don't make that the only thing.

Both: Guess what, your relationship is now on its head, it will never be the same, it will change. Know what you should do? Control the change, decide how it does, both of you have the power but know one thing, it can't go back.

TLR
****** ******, no point bitching, do something about it.

The only way out of the friend-zone is to cut all ties for awhile, depending on the person that could be anywhere from a couple weeks to a couple months. The whole "You don't know what you've got til it's gone." type deal. Only works though if the issue was with getting your message across, not your actual personality.

Maybe, Maybe not. Honestly i would not suggest that mental approach to it, I've tried.

Unfortunately there are a couple large flaws in "I'm gonna stop talking to her/him (yes, girls can be friend-zoned too) until they realize how much they miss/care-for me."

A) How does one alienate themselves from a single friend. Yes I grant if she/he isn't friends with the rest of your core group it is pretty easy, but more times than not they are rather integrated into your group so when you start avoiding them (switching to neutrals) eyebrows will raise and you'll have to tell everyone boiling down to the picking of sides and true crumbling of the friendship.

B) Impatience. That simple, but in case this is not as obvious as I believe it is I shall say what i mean by this. We are human, we are impatient, and we live in a society of immediate gratification. This impatience has multiple possible effects but most likely is self torture. Even that aside one may find themselves unable to wait till the object of affection comes to them, thus spoiling it.

This is not to say the action is bad but more to act as a cautionary tale, never attempt to manipulate. Instead act in a manner that best protects you from the pain and damn what the other one feels, I mean it, any marriage counselor worth their wage would tell you not to put yourself through hell over a romantic interest, it spoils it.

TL DR
be careful what mindset you take when you choose your response to the "friend zone"

Well, essentially what I was talking about is getting rid of the label as "friend". In other words, detaching yourself from the original friendship and starting over. Sure, this isn't foolproof and has a number of flaws, but it can work if done properly.

In the end, the only way to NOT be in the friend-zone, is to not be a friend. Now, that isn't to say you stop talking to the person, simply stop talking to them with any type of interest. Of course, people may ask questions, but if you're honest and say "I asked them out and got rejected.", most would understand not talking at the same level anymore.

With the friend zone, as well as any matter of relationships, it all boils down to playing your cards right.

you raise a grand point, and I can't say you're wrong. The only issue i have is in the attitude, please take no offense to this I easily grant improper wording and all that...

But still, when you use the phrase "play your cards right" it makes me cringe. Not because I don't think there isn't any technique in associating with a romantic partner, but instead because it makes it sound more like you are manipulating them, know what I mean? I'd prefer a saying closer to "Roll the dice right" you try to put technique into something that is purely chance.

I guess it can sound like you're manipulating them, but what I mean is do the right thing to get into a relationship with them. I wouldn't really consider it manipulating unless you're telling lies and half-truths.

In other words, I just mean doing the right thing to get your feelings across. In the case of simply not being their friend anymore to get a new start, this would be distancing yourself from them, maintaining closeness with the rest of your friends, and then successfully starting new with the person you want to go out with. It would be "Playing your cards right.", but you aren't manipulating them.

How many feminists does it take to change a light bulb?

12.

One to screw it in,
one to excoriate men for creating the need for illumination,
one to blame men for inventing such a faulty means of illumination,
one to suggest the whole "screwing" bit to be too "rape-like",
one to deconstruct the lightbulb itself as being phallic,
one to blame men for not changing the bulb,
one to blame men for trying to change the bulb instead of letting a woman do it,
one to blame men for creating a society that discourages women from changing light bulbs,
one to blame men for creating a society where women change too many light bulbs,
one to advocate that lightbulb changers should have wage parity with electricians,
one to alert the media that women are now "out-lightbulbing" men,
and one to just sit there taking pictures for her blog for photo-evidence that men are unnecessary.

I don't feel she has to date because I was nice to her.

I just really wish she would.

Alright guess I'll contribute as well. I'm a guy who's been friend zoned many many times, like it's not even funny. I see people saying that most just bitch and whine and hope they'll come around one day, and yeah I certainly hope some will start to like me too. But you know what I do in the mean time? I be her God damn friend. I do it with the hope she'll come around, but it's not the reason I do it. I do it because I obviously like this person as a person and care about them. What I'm gonna stop liking this person because she won't suck my dick? No! I'm not going to throw away a good friendship over something stupid. And really it's the best thing to do. If she starts liking you romantically fantastic, God speed my brother! If not, you still got a fantastic friend who's there for you, just like you're there for her. (Pic related it's my two cents)
