Is friendzoning the worst or best thing to happen to your friendship?

A now-deleted male Reddit user asked "How to not give a fuck about being rejected/friendzoned?" after finding out that a close female friend was not interested in him romantically. A female user, ObscenePenguin, had this to say in response.



"She's not friendzoning you. You've girlfriendzoned her. Now then, it's a fact universally accepted that most dudes would bone their female friends given the opportunity- however, seeing a female friend only as a girlfriend is girlfriendzoning.

She's not rejected you, she's still your friend. She's just turned you down for a date. She's probably sitting at home thinking 'WTF, have I been girlfriendzoned here? Has this dude only been nice to be for the last 5 months so he could get into my knickers? Was our whole friendship a lie? How am I going to get over this?'



It sucks to be in the girlfriendzone, the more it happens the less you trust men. Seriously, it's shit.

Secondly, she's turned you down because she doesn't fancy you. She said it was because you didn't smoke because she didn't want to hurt your feelings, it was probably the first thing that popped into he head.

So, then - what to do?



You need to remove this girl from your girlfriendzone. Let that shit go. Stay stoic. You can control how you feel, but you cannot control how she feels. Every time you catch yourself thinking about her, imagine her scratching her arse and sniffing her fingers, or picking her nose and eating the boogers- whatever it takes. For the love of God, do not start smoking to impress her.

Romantic rejection sucks, bro, but it's not about you, it's about her-so there's nothing you can do.

Now's the time for a little self improvement. Stop using the term 'friendzone', when women hear it we translate as 'immature neckbeard with misplaced sense of entitlement' - it's not attractive. Dealing with any kind of rejection is a challenge, and challenges are what make us tough."

Yeah, us either.

The internet has always been a mess, but it's also always been beautiful.

So let's talk about how a dog owner on Facebook learned her dog's "adorable" behavior was, in fact, furious masturbation.

Readers, if you know anything about me you know I love a good plot twist and I love chonky puppers.

Yesterday, life combined my two great loves in a hilarious and inappropriate way.

I was mindlessly scrolling through my dog groups on Facebook when a video with a few hundred laugh reacts but almost no comments caught my eye.

The still from the video was a pudgy little Frenchie, so obviously I had to read and watch.

Have you ever fantasized about what it would be like to win the lottery? Having money for the rest of your life, as far as the eye can see, to cover your expenses.

And have you thought about all the things you would buy if you could really afford them? Are they ALL practical things, or are some of them silly?

We always love to fantasize about what life would be like if money were no object. And you are not alone!
