So it happens from time to time. You meet someone and become friends. After a while there is the mutual feeling that there is more and you both intensify the things you do. Until it hits both of you and the feelings are no longer mutual. One person says “let’s stay friends…”
To be friend-zoned is to be in a suspension between two ends and at one point you either fall or move on. If you do not move on you can fall hard and become inspired to sing the Blues. At one point you feel like smashing your guitar tough. I am not going there as I prefer a glass of wine.
Oh yes somebody I met did decide to go into the friend-zone phase. After which at one point I left work, got a glass of wine and after a long ten-hour shift I finally felt awake. Not worthy of a hangover nor of a celebration. Feeling inadequate to the extent that you feel powerless you face two options.
You either talk and maybe the friend-zone phase has an exit (at one point in time) or you say your goodbyes and move on. The more intense the feelings involved the harder it may be but that is life. I am too tired of my own doubts so I move on as quickly as possible. That will involve more wine but that is a pleasant compromise.
The rush of feeling in love is one that heightens everything you feel. As I get older though I prefer to call it a silly phase to quote 10CC. When it gets serious you can properly celebrate.
Oh right the conclusion is near. Where to conclude when a silly phase remains silly? I might have to call Dim of the Yard while I “get on with it” because my words are becoming futile.
Friend zoned, yeah I do not like spam…
