The long and short of this post is to bitch-smack the shit out of anyone who seems to be unable to escape the friendzone. Here's the truth of the matter: if a girl puts you in the friendzone, she is insulting you.
To explain, let me provide you with a personal story. This is the story of how yours truly became, almost overnight, one of the reddest motherfuckers on the planet. And I did it long before that term was used in its current incarnation.
It began because I got friend-zoned. It was the first and last time it ever happened.
The woman who did it was someone I'd known for a long time. I grew up very poor, but escaped my situation. Because of the fact that I lived in a trailer growing up, I considered this chick out of my league while I was in school.
Fast forward to my senior year at a very prestigious university. I had become attractive, athletic and successful. Now, I was worthy. So, I invited her to a huge social event, and decided I'd lay it all out. After the event, I told her that I'd had harbored a massive crush on her for years and wanted to date her.
She said: "I want to be friends."
Now, I had been writing a long paper on evolutionary ethics at the time, and this was fortuitous. My work had taught me, long before TRP or even its precursor material (e.g. "Models") had come out, the nature of masculine-feminine interaction.
So, while the immediate reaction was disappointment and sadness, I didn't stay there long. Literally, within seconds my thoughts turned to my work and everything made sense. I knew that women sought the best mates they could get.
Because of that, I knew that this woman was telling me, in a very kind way: "I know you; I've had a good look and I think I can do better."
My sadness immediately turned to anger. And so I said something that would have been unfathomable years before: "I'm not interested in being friends."
And I left her. I didn't speak to her for a decade, and then only in a random encounter.
I pondered the decision for weeks, and asked myself the common questions. Am I a bad person? Should I apologize.
Why should I ever spend anymore time making decisions to appease someone who thinks that she is superior to me? Were she not an attractive woman, would I ever consider doing this? Of course not.
Gentlemen, women are designed to get the best they can. If they put you in the friendzone, they are telling you that they think they can do better. It's really that simple.
If that doesn't insult the fuck out of you, then I don't know what to tell you.
