I got another email question! I’m totally not sure if it’s a troll email or not, but here it is, and here’s my answers.
Q: Okay so I’ve been great friends with this girl and she considers me as her best friend..
I fear if I’ve been friendzoned already for I have feelings for her..
She cares a lot about me..
I do care a lot about her..
The thing is I fear if I ask her out, it might spoil our friendship.
So please I need your help..
What to do?
First thing you do, emailer friend, is to never use the verb “friendzone” ever, EVER again. Everything about that term implies that the only goal of being in any sort of relationship (including a friendship) with a woman is sex, and that makes you kind of a douche
The second thing you do is go back and read this
. I think it will help.
The third thing you need to do is make a list, and on one side put all the great parts about being friends with this lady. Do you do fun things together? Can you talk about a ton of stuff? Great! Now, what’s the only thing you’re standing to gain from turning this friendship into something else? If the only thing you can come up with is “sex”, then you need to decide if trying to get sex from this friend of yours is worth the potential spoiling of your friendship. You also have to brace yourself for the mad amounts of awkward if that goes awry.
Please, don’t consider the only goal of being friends with a girl to eventually end up boning her. That’s horrible and isn’t worth anyone’s time. For real though, you don’t want to end up like that guy. If you have genuine feelings for her you should tell her, but if all you think you want is the sex, don’t do it.
