Ah, the overly feared, much-dreaded friendzone. While both the genders are affected by this horrid phenomenon, it is usually the guys who suffer the most. While a lot of us just suck it up and try to move on, there are a few determined comrades who just go for the win. So, if you're still wondering how to get out of the friendzone, here are a few suggestions I can give you!
Accept And Assess The Situation
Yes, I know it's hard (#PersonalExperience). But yes, she will take time to realize whether she likes you or not. And one more thing; it's not your fault that she put you in that friendzone. She might have her things going on, or maybe she's not ready to be serious. For all you know, she may even have a boyfriend (#KillMeNow)! So, assess the situation wisely before you do anything that can be classified as stupid.
Prefer Calling Over Texting
While that whole Emoji stuff may be making texting cute, there's nothing better than an exchange of voices. Calling her will definitely make a difference, as it will move you closer to her as a friend. But yes, don't be that 4 AM shoulder for her, where she cries to you about her crush. Just stay away from that perimeter.
Refrain From The Friend Tag
Do not… I repeat… DO NOT refer to her through platonic adjectives. Do not call her your best friend all the time, as you'd be just reinforcing the force field you are in called the friendzone. While it is okay when talking to a third person, refrain from the ‘friends', ‘good friends' and ‘best friends' tags at all times. This might help you in dropping subtle hints.
Keep A Balance Between Good Guy And Bad Guy
While some girls totally dig the bad guy attitude, there are some who love a cultured, docile man. Now, you might not really know what she likes more, so just keep a decent balance between the good and the bad. That way, you're giving her an option to have a look at both the poles of a legend, i.e. you.

Tell Her How You Feel
Don't just run to her with a bouquet of roses. That'll be creepy. Tell her how you feel in a convenient, comfortable setting and see what she has in store for you. While she may not always respond positively, she'd know how you feel, and you both may hopefully be in a relationship in the future! But yes, leave this only for when the time is right!
Don't Just Whine Over Her
Yes man, we know you're head over heels for her, but don't just let your life be limited to her (#Devdas)! Head out, enjoy some manly company with your friends! Meet new girls and be a little flirty! And if your crush gets jealous with all the flirting, you're about to win!
Like all the elders have said, patience is the key, my man. Don't just expect everything to happen overnight! If you know that she's the one, stay focused, determined, and one day, you'd be the happiest man in the world!
