How To Escape The Friend Zone
Things between your crush and you may be tricky if your crush is actually in a relationship! The first thing you're probably thinking of doing is trying to break up the happy couple, but we strongly recommend against doing this! Not only will it dramatically decrease your chances of ever escaping the friend zone, but it may also eradicate you from your crush's life altogether.
The last thing you want to show your crush is childish or jealous behavior. Envy is an unattractive quality in anyone, so don't let it rear it's ugly green head! Instead, try to show your crush that even though they're in a relationship, they're still important to you.
Chances are that you're being super nice and over-the-top sweet to your love interest, correct? Many guys or girls who end up in the friend zone fit into the stereotypical "nice guy / girl" category. While there's nothing wrong with being nice (in fact, it's something to be congratulated about), the problem is that you most likely don't voice your opinions or say 'no' when you want to.
The nice guy / girl is typically afraid of hurting other people's feelings, so they constantly get the raw end of the deal because they are unable to speak up for themselves. Do you always loan people money, even though they never pay you back? Or are you constantly helping friends with their assignments only to have them never return the favor? If you want your crush to earn more respect for you, it's time you communicate your own needs and have more respect for yourself!
As a result, your crush will begin to respect you in return, and the channels of communication and desire will flow more freely.
If you've been friend zoned, it's probably because you're the one who will always do anything they ask you to do. But do you ever ask them to help you out too? Chances are you don't in fear of them getting annoyed, but if you want them to value you as more than a friend, they're going to have to invest in the relationship too!
Simple things such as asking for help with an assignment, or maybe asking for a ride. If your crush begins to feel needed in little ways, it will transform your friendship and help it to advance. When both parties involved begin to realize that they can rely on one another, then this can only be a good thing!
