Ever been in the situation where you simply want to be just friends with someone who has confessed his/her affections to you? That person is officially going into the much-dreaded friend zone. But wait a second! What’s so terrible about being friend zoned?
“I like you too, but let’s just be friends.”
Unrequited love can be heart-breaking and we can all do away with the pain, but it is a necessity for self-growth. The same applies to the Friend Zone. It may not be as bad as you think, and here’s why:
Somebody to count on
Frustrations and disappointment go hand in hand in the Friend Zone until one realises that friendship is the foundation of a solid relationship. Being friends with someone you genuinely like is not such a bad thing after all. At least you know there’d always be a friend that you can count on.
“No relationship can stand the test of time without the foundations of a strong friendship”, said love and relationships author Daniel Jones.

A passage to self-discovery
Getting rejected can be tough, regardless of one’s gender or age. However, there are always two sides to a coin, and that applies to the friend zone too. The wise words of German philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche, echoed: “That which does not kill us, makes us stronger.” Learning to deal with your disappointment and accepting the situation denotes your passage to self-discovery and growth. As you accept this friendship, you would gain a greater understanding at matters, especially with fresh perspectives from your ex-potential love interest.
When you are interested in someone and wants the other party to reciprocate your feelings, you’d most likely crack your brains to impress him/her. Such pressure is rare in a friendship where friends simply enjoy each other’s company without expectations. You can be yourself. No sweat.
“What’s the difference between ‘Girlfriend’ and ‘Girl Friend’? Note the space in between? That’s the Friend Zone.”
