Navigating the Friend Area

With swipe straight- polite dating apps becoming completely acceptable, and social media allowing you to see your crush’s entire romantic history, there are few rules nowadays when it comes to finding love Sadly, that may be leading to more and more citizens being companion zoned.

The Friend Zone is a term used to describe the uneasy scenario that occurs when you’re interested in one, but they only see you as a companion. It’s not necessarily a negative issue, but it can be frustrating and confusing if you want to take things farther with them.

One of the biggest indicators that you’re in the Friend Zone is if they treat you like a friend but do n’t show any signs of wanting to develop a more romantic or intimate relationship with you. If they’re hesitant to contact you or merely provide you relaxed hugs, it’s probable they do n’t notice you as anything more than a buddy. Similarly, if they talk to you about their other romantic pursuits or tell you how much they appreciate you as a friend but do n’t want to get involved with a more serious relationship, that’s another big indicator.

One way to break out of the Friend Zone is to focus on developing mental friendship. Spending quality time with them and fostering trustworthy conversation are the most effective ways to make it clear that you’re interested in things more. Likewise, introducing new activities that require focused connection can help to create a stronger friendship and allow you to move from companionship to love.
