At this point in my friendship, I feel I should be able to relax, but I feel nervous that he expects more. Jorah Mormont of Game of Thrones and Forrest Gump are other quintessential examples, and the message in these movies and TV shows is clear: Being stuck in the friend zone is the saddest fate imaginable. Few among us would deny that unrequited romantic feelings are painful. The friend zone mythology centers the man and his feelings, making him the protagonist of a heartrending story of lost love.

For starters, it paints a dim picture of male-female friendship, which is both possible and precious in its own right, not a lowly consolation prize compared to a romantic relationship. Ryan has started to realize how much this logic played into his behavior when he was younger.
Some say they need time to nurse their wounds; others wish to focus their time and energy on different relationships.
