Signs she thinks of you only as a friend

02 October 2014, 19:26 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - In most cases probably not because you helped her put you there. Stepping out from there is like climbing Mt.Kilimanjaro, getting stuck there and being unable to come down. So what are you doing that is keeping you up there rather than where you would like to be headed?

You are too slow

You end up in the friend zone when you decide to take it slow with her. Taking it slow…what does that mean? If you meet a girl and you like her, ask her out once and for all if you give her time making friends with her first, you will most probably be left on the sidelines while she goes out with other guys. She will end up thinking of you as a friend other than a potential date.

Always being the helping hand

She needs to go to the mall, you give her a ride to the mall, taking her shopping or being her second at that family event…the second, not even the date. When you are constantly rescuing her from drastic situations, you inch closer and closer to the dead zone, you are past the friend zone. For a girl to want to date you, you have to be a mystery to her, be like that clown box that always has unexpected stuff pop out of it. That is why some guys end up painting her nails and moan how much you do for her. What you are doing is being a girlfriend.

Letting her be the shoulder you cry on

As much as women constantly say how they want their men to open up to them, there is a limit. And he is already THEIR man, when you are not and constantly run to her to help solve your problems, you are definitely in the friend zone. She on the other hand will keep looking for that guy who will be her rock and does not constantly crumble around. We look for partners who look stable in terms of being able to handle themselves emotionally so that we can run to them with our problems not the other way around.
