11 Telltale Signs You’ve Entered the Dreaded Friend Zone

You want his babies, he wants your BFF’s booty. Here are 11 signs you’re in the zone –the friendzone, that is.

500 days of summer lede

He gets your wacky sense of humor, practically spends the weekend vegging out on your couch, and even pets your cat (he’s allergic). But you’ve been waiting months for him to make a move and he can’t stop talking about that hot celebrity/girl at the bar/neighbor. Talk about frustrating! If you’re wondering if you’ve been friendzoned (ugh!), we’ve rounded up the GIFs to help you figure it all out.

Being friendzoned is painful, but you don’t need us to tell you that when this kid can do it so much better.

9. Your Friday nights with him consist of Taco Bell and action flicks.

10. You incessantly watch him fawn over other girls.

11. You’re everything he wants and needs in one pretty package but there’s a 99.9% chance that he’ll never realize it. [Just picture Zooey as a dude here.]
