Girls, Here's How You Avoid Being Friend-Zoned!
How many times have you read an article about a guy being friend-zoned? Don't they realize that girls get friend-zoned too? Don't worry, I do. So, this article is for all the girls who never got out of the friend-zone or even worse, the bro-zone. Wondering what the bro-zone could be for girls? I'll tell you. It's when you are the only girl in your gang! That, my friend, is when you get bro-zoned by your guy friends because your boys don't consider you as a gal. I bet you can relate to it now. However, there are a few ways how you can save yourself from being friend-zoned by your guy "best friend".
Be Cool About It
I know you aren't drawing hearts with his name in it on your notebook, but he's just too damn cute to be your bro. It could be because of the equation you both share or because he is always there for you. There's a good chance that you are over-thinking about his friendly gestures to something else, but, trust me on this, you don't want to be friend-zoned by another guy! So, you may not be in love with him but your gut tells you that you both are meant to be together. The key is to be cool about it even when you have a bunch of butterflies having a World War 3 in your belly! Do not look at him with those lovey-dovey eyes when you both are together. If you continue doing cute stuff for him and with him, there's a chance you're creeping him out and giving him all the right reasons to put you in the friend-zone!

Give Him Some Space
Do not cling on to him everywhere he goes. If he is just mentioning a plan to you, do not consider yourself included in the plan. He might just be informing you of his plans. Stick to him everywhere he goes and soon enough you won't even be a friend to be friend-zoned!
Stop Tagging Your Friendship
You don't really know what he thinks about you, but you are pretty sure of your feelings. So, do yourself a favor and stop calling him your best friend every time you both speak! If you keep calling him your best friend, I don't know about him, but you are walking happily on the path to the forbidden zone!
It is definitely not important to look like a doll every time you go out; but yes, do not go out looking like how you actually look when you wake up! Dress decently and put in a little effort to apply a gloss and some mascara whenever you guys are going out. Now, most of the times, guys do not compliment their female friends on how they dress, they're not your girlfriends who would mention how pretty your yellow summer dress looks, but they do notice! So, put some lipstick and handle it like a queen.
Accept It And Move On
If he does not feel the same way about you, try giving him some time because all this while he thought of you as a friend. If he starts to ignore you more often after you confess your feelings to him, it is better to move on to someone who will reciprocate. You really need to get a grip and accept the fact that maybe he's just not that into you.
