    Sounds like a reasonable Bond movie plot

    "This season -- Bond must escape the virtues of his new nemesis: the friendzone. Watch as he tries to escape a problem all men face at one stage in their life. Surely Bond hasn't met his match?"

    Honestly that would be better than the old Bond movies where he straight up rapes a girl at least once. If it was today people would probably try and defend it by saying "Well her name is Pussy Galore"

    I don't know a lot about Bond movies. Just that "Moonraker" is a great name and, if I remember what I've read right, a really dumb movie.

    Also that a lot of people think The Living Daylights is really underrated.

    The phrase itself may have a negative connotation but it all depends on the context in which it is used. There's two sides to a coin, yeah it may be used in a negative light in some cases but in others it is used in a much more light hearted and dare I say comical fashion. "Yeah I got friendzoned haha, but I'm okay with being friends if you are" that sort of thing. And most people who use the phrase use it in the way I stated, without resentment.

    i believe the issue is more so that even in a comical fashion, the term still enables the idea that it's an acceptable and legit excuse from self-blame when it comes to rejection. even taken lightly, it can be harmful if manifested in a way that doesn't provide all the context necessary.

    i'd rather someone make the clarification that it's a ******** term just in case than just laugh and continue on. we don't truly know if this guy is one of those misogynistic dudes who harbors hatred for women all throughout his life and he's just waiting to let loose.
     
  6. The "friendzone" is nonsense because women are not vending machines that you pop kindness coins into until sex comes out. Typically, someone is attracted to you or they aren't.

    I just had to bring up the friendzone topic...but at least this thread is a little more alive now. Well, for now anyways. You're welcome.

    Speaking of vending machines, I haven't had any soda in over a week. Hopefully I can keep up this healthy trend. Honestly, I don't even consume that much soda to begin with, but I want to eliminate it for good. I've been drinking nothing but water and juices lately.

    If only I could get my sleep schedule fixed. My sleep schedule is complete ****.

    Take it from me, putting coins in women sounds like a good idea, but it's terrible in practice.

    But the friendzone isn't something that only women do to men, it can easily go the other way as well.

    Exactly.

    This is the point I was trying to get across.

    Oh for the love of God, this coming from the guy who complained about how online dating was "trash for men".

    Being upset that "women get more dates than men" or at least more than you do anyway makes you seem a bit hypocritical don't you think?

    if it ain't ol' jb

    i don't see the relationship tbh.

    i understand the negative connotations that come with the friendzone.

    at the same time I know online dating as a dude is pretty asinine.

    ??????

    where's the relation

    Whiskey is amazing. I mostly drink on occasions, though.

    Sometimes after a long day of work I like to sit back and relax with a drink.

    It is, however, probably someone's fetish.

    Calling it now: unless I go **** crazy and start posting a bunch of porn places, if anything will get me banned, it will be this.

    You made the broad generalization that online dating sucks for all men based on your personal experiences. And then you go ahead and criticize the term or when men specifically use the term, it made you seem a bit passive aggressive is all.
