i never knew friendzoning boys was as easy as saying thanks im gonna use my manners more
further evidence that straight boys think compliments are magic words that are supposed to make women immediately strip naked
What’s the appropriate, non-friendzoning response?
"You look pretty today."
"Okay, fine, I’ll suck your dick."
I don’t. Buh. Whaa? This kind of stuff is infuriating.
This stuff is also why women have trouble accepting compliments, because we are never sure if men are just being nice or are trying to get into our pants and may think acceptance of a compliment means an open invitation.
Women are not prizes. You don’t earn XP with compliments until you unlock the Get Laid achievement, hoss. Learn to accept a “no” with dignity and grace and maybe then, you might one day be worthy of a “yes.”
And you are REQUIRED to wait for that “yes,” and to make sure that it’s constant and enthusiastic and full sober when it arrives. Anything less, and you are a worthless douche who should be cursed to spend the rest of your life masturbating with tears and powdered glass.
And ladies and others, that goes for you too.
The friendzone is bullshit. No means no. Consent is mandatory.
Fucking respect each other.
Adding on how infuriating it is that such a large portion of the population seems to think there is some mystical giant wall between the boring everyday land of friendship and the mysterious nigh-unobtainable magical power that is love.
:T Uh no. If you are not friends with your partner(s) you’re not in love, you’re in lust. Which, you know, is fine if that’s all you want and everyone involved understands and accepts that. But be honest about your intentions if so.
Regarding love, that person should be your BEST friend. Or maybe you’ve got a totally-platonic friend or two who you’re a little more comfortable talking with more things about, that’s cool; but at least in your general inner ring of best friends, then.
Friendship is not a BARRIER to romance it is the pathway to it, the foundation on which a lasting romance is built. Sure, sometimes you meet a new person and there’s an immediate spark for both of you, but you know what else starts growing as your romance does? Yeah, your friendship.
Or you’d better hope it does. If you’re not very good friends with someone please don’t hold high expectations for a relationship because chances are you’re just going to make each other miserable if you ask too much. :T
