When you first find interest in the opposite gender or in the same or in mermaids/merman, hey I won’t judge you, a crucial point arises when you do get interested. Asking that person out. We have all seen it in movies, read it in books. It’s as simple as possible, you just casually approach, and shazam, nothing could be easier, right? You just ask the question ‘would you like to go with me on a date’, and of course the answer is always ‘yes’. Wrong. Chances are you will get rejected more. But this is not something to sulk about, it happens, that’s life, you move on, and refocus your interest in something else.
Imagine if all our ancestors got rejected when they first tried to get together with someone. Well, we wouldn’t be here now for sure, right? Just because you get “friend-zoned”, doesn’t mean you should stop, drop and mope like a 2 year old girl who can’t get candy. Man up, or woman up, and try again. I think that whoever came up with the term friend-zone has to be the most emotionally scarred person, imagine that, he/she got turned down and has devoted his/her life to ruin other’s chances by scaring them into oblivion. How vexed do you have to be to hate the fact that you have been rejected a few times, wait, here is my compassionate sign of pity, “Boohoo”. If it wasn’t cleared the first time round, I am sooo feeling their pain. Sarcasm. Educate yourself.
Insert_random_name-zoned doesn’t mean you fail or that your feet smell, it is just a polite way of saying that the other person is not interested. Don’t take it as an insult, take it as a genuine way of saying that this won’t work. Sulk for a day, have a few cold ones, go out with your friends, get back in the game. MOVE ON. There are plenty of fish in the sea, literally there are so many fish it is unbelievable. Oh yeah, there are plenty of women out there too. Fact of the matter is, according to studies the ratio is 3:1, women versus men. Just saying. So just grow a pair, and get the hell back in the game. Although if you prefer being a whiny little girl, no offense to the female population, at least be useful to society and while you are shut in your room, build us a freaking time machine. Or portal guns.
All that you can learn from being “zoned” is that you need to improve, or that you are interested in the wrong things or that your feet are indeed smelly. Just saying. But for the love of everything that is sweet and creamy DO NOT take every “zoning” as a personal Waterloo. It’s just a minor setback, a slight inconvenience on the road to success. Now, be good little girls or boys and stop behaving like it is the end of the world. Honestly.
