Recently I’ve come to believe that there is no friend zone. I believe that if two persons like each other, both of them will know. If just one person likes the other one, the other person will not reciprocate that feeling.
In other words: if you feel that you are in a friend zone, you are most likely a friend. Because the person you like likes you as a friend, but nothing more. In case you wonder how to find out about that: send the other person little signs of affection. If the other person does not respond in kind, it’s probably time to be more direct.
In other words: we might already know that someone doesn’t like us that way, but we are so desperate or blind that we are clinging to a ridiculous chance of 0.001 percent that the other person might like us after all. See how small that chance is? Exactly.
