Demystifying The Friend Zone
The aspect of Prince charming is an elusive one and I know mainly female readers will relate. I’m sorry I can’t speak for the male race. My physical limitations at birth robbed me of that pleasure.
No worries, I’m not complaining. I’m happy being female. Okay maybe it crosses my mind once in a while but I don’t have that much a drive to be male.

Back to Prince Charming
When you’re a young girl, it’s easy to build your ideal man. Please keep in mind I’m not giving relationship advice: I’m just penning down a few idle observations.
It’s easy to imagine growing up, meeting an amazing man and falling head over heels in love with each other. Past the falling phase you think life after that will be textbook perfect. Again, all this happens in your head.
When the friend zone decides to hit, it hits hard and real
The Truth However…
As you actually grow, you learn that there are no picture perfect people. You also learn that falling for someone doesn’t guarantee that they will fall right back-sad, huh? Not necessarily.
It opens your eyes to the fact that relationships (I refuse to desecrate the word love anymore) aren’t the way they are portrayed in story books. They get messy at times and people do act selfishly.
Also, no matter how good your intentions, some people are actually out to hurt you so that they feel better about themselves.
Introducing the famous friend zone
Once you realize that love is simple and the relationships we create are the cause of all our complications, you create a friend zone.
That section in your heart where you put the nice guys- those you can’t risk losing to a failed relationship. If you look closely into most people’s friend zones, you’d be surprised that they are filled with mainly darlings- again, I speak for some females.
Now these are mainly people’s Prince Charming but due to the complexities that come with being more than friends, we would rather they be friends forever.
I guess that’s why some girls are stuck in unsatisfactory relationships- they probably friend zoned all the good guys.
Finally the disclaimer
Like I said, I just guess. I’m not a hundred percent certain. And for those asking, no. The analysis doesn’t apply in my life. Mine is a different case scenario.
Maybe someday I’ll write about it. Or maybe I won’t. After all I don’t want people dissecting my thought process basing on my life decisions.
