Ah, the friend zone. Man's most hated thing ever. You meet a pretty girl and start going out. She enjoys your company and you enjoy hers. You fall for her, but she doesn’t. You know how it goes.
But it doesn't have to be this way all the time. And we’ve got proof. We have seven mini-stories below about guys getting out of the friend zone (as told by the guys themselves!), published on humor site The Chive last October 13. The site collected a series of short stories by men about escaping the dreaded zone, and embedded them onto a photo. We've collected seven of the strangest here, hoping that these cool stories may inspire you to someday vanquish the evil that is the friend zone in your own strange manners!
1) THIS DUDE WHO JUST WENT FOR IT
2) FROM PRETEND-BOYFRIEND TO HUSBAND
3) IF YOU'RE GOING TO GET A ROOMMATE, GET ONE THAT YOU MIGHT POTENTIALLY WANT TO MARRY SOMEDAY
4) FINE, LYING CAN SOMETIMES DO GOOD
5) BOLERO LINES, BRO, BOLERO LINES
6) MAYBE YOU DON'T NEED TO ESCAPE THE FRIEND ZONE IN THE FIRST PLACE
7) IF YOUR GRADE SCHOOL CRUSH PUT YOU IN THE FRIEND ZONE BACK IN THE DAY, WHY NOT TRY AGAIN NOW?
