You're right, i see lots where someone lets one rip at an interview or just meeting the in-laws. That's certainly not proffessional but people need to lern to loosen up and understand people make mistakes and we're all human and need to fart and can't always control it.
I'm a girl, and believe me, it happens both ways. I'm not singling out women by any means. But to deny that looks isn't a factor in it is absolutely naive and dishonest. Besides, I never said it was necessarily a bad thing to go for looks. Shallow as hell, but not bad. You reap what you sow, after all.
Sure it happens both ways, but that's like saying a lot of humans kill each other. There's assholes everywhere. I'm just sick of hearing so-called guys bitching about being "friend-zoned", cause the truth of the matter is that the majority of the people I've heard bitching about it are really just creepy weirdos anyway, who see girls as objects to control and make dependent on them. It's sick. No means no.
Please don't slam me for generalizing if you're going to generalize yourself. And don't use the word "bitch" as a verb when talking about misogyny. And how is people killing each other a sound analogy to what I was saying? How is that an answer to my argument? Are you saying that, like killing and assholes, the friend-zone exists? If you're acknowledging that it exists, it seems a little cold to slam, and generalize, men (and women) who get put in it constantly. Rejection isn't just for the creeps. Or maybe I'm wrong, I don't know. Ah, well. I'm done here. Let the rain of down-voting descend, but at least I got to say what I feel I had to.
You had me at "the word bitch is misogynistic". I won't waste my time. Bottom line is if you "need" to have a girlfriend or boyfriend to feel good or secure about yourself, much less to stop you whining about how unfair it is that someone doesn't want to give their life up just cause you're infatuated with them, then you've got problems and shouldn't be around people anyway.
Why do guys get so angry for being 'friend-zoned'? If she's not interested, then she's not interested and if you don't like being a friend, then quit being such instead of bitching about it. We all get turned down every now and then, just move on. Guys complaining about 'friend-zoning' always make it sound like women never experience the same thing.
I'm just wondering where this phrase "friend-zone" started. Now roll with me on this. I speculate it's from today's sex crazed society. Everywhere you look someone is selling something to improve sex or they're selling sex. Hell, I've heard so many people my own age talk about it as if its just something to do JUSTfor fun, and not very personal act of two people. But it's not. Sex is not to be taken lightly. Anyway that was my "friend zone"/sex/prostitution conspiracy theory.
lol what a mean and untrue generalization about friendzoned guys. Most of the guys I've known that had friendzone issues were the shy ones who were usually too chicken to make a move on the girls they liked soon enough. All pretty nice guys as far as I remember. The ones who saw women as objects did not have a friendzone problem, quite the contrary. They'd either be the douchebags who hit on every single girl at parties or the creeps that girls wouldn't even talk to. My advice to friendzoned guys would be to make your intentions known immediately. Be a man. And if a girl says she only likes you like a friend, end the friendship (not meanly by any means, but if you want something romantic and she doesn't, move on).
87--YES!! I totally agree. Sometimes you just have to fight for what you want. If you feel that strongly about someone, go for it. You have nothing to lose. Friend-zoned can be a bitch place to be, but it's not a life sentence. Try it. She may be feeling the same way and just waiting for you to speak up.
20- Shallow=Bad. Stupid bitch. And, looks are a factor. Who doesn't want to be attracted to the person they're dating? Who wants to date Fat Bastard from Austin Powers? So yes, looks are a factor. But shouldn't be the only thing. Like with Twilight. That (and smell) are the only thing their relashionship depends on.
140: I disagree. While 20 is quite wrong on a few things, her opinion that shallow =/= bad is not one of them. If it was, then every single fan of the Twilight series (the most popular shallow romance of the decade) is a bad person. Every single one. Don't get me wrong, shallow people can be annoying and incredibly immature, but are they bad? No. (And 20, I hope you don't take this philosophy with you out in the real world. Your cynicism might be business-as-usual on FML, but it makes for a lonely life outside of it.)
Shrike, when guys describe the friend zone, they are speaking of good guys who get put into it. Weirdos are the exception. They are the people who are in the friend zone for a reason. Good guys are usually put in by circumstance. I'm talking legitimate friends who haven't thought of dating one another. Then the guy finds that he is attracted to her in his teen years, but the girl is still not seeing him as a boyfriend. Not because of how he looks, but because of what they have been in past times. That's my description of the friend zone.
As a girl who has been "friend-zoned" and has done the same to some awesome, amazing people, I just want to say that you friend zone somebody because everybody has seperate preferances and some people just aren't who you are looking for. That doesn't mean that you don't care about them, it's that you find them appealing in a non-romantic way, or you just haven't seen them in that light. I married my best friend who was "friend zoned" by me for years before we finally established a relationship, and that was when I WASN'T looking. I realized the amazing qualities in him that I hadn't noticed before, because I was so desperate. Point on point is I seemed to be looking for arse-holes. The point is, when you are so desperate as to the point where you constantly need to be in a relationship, you are going to get a crappy relationship. It happens. But sometimes, when you actually look in the right places or just let life happen, you can fall into the brightest spots. I know from experiance :)
Wow, like he never farts. What an ass. You deserve better, OP!
If he can't put up with the bad... He CERTAINLY doesn't deserve the good!
33- The guy in the FML was mad that she farted while they were talking. He wasn't mad about her farting in general because obviously we all know everyone farts. It was rude of her to do so while talking to him, which is why he isn't a hypocrite because he didn't rip a big one while talking to her.
I haven't met a man yet that doesn't let one rip from time to time in front of their significant other. What an ass though.

Strike One: You fart loud enough for it to be heard over the phone. Strike Two: You lack the technical skill to operate the mute button. Strike Three: You're not clever enough to blame the fart on your TV or the whoope cushion you are playing with.
