9: She Goes Dutch (Friend Zone Signs)
In your head, you are painting the scene for romance. You take her out to a nice dinner or even a chill bar. You think it’s a date and in the end, she pays for herself. These are clear friend zone signs, she’s not into you. Women will pay their way because they do not want to feel like they owe you anything. Whether it’s round for round or splitting the bill in the end, to her you are just a friend.
8: The Third Wheel
You know you’ve been friend-zoned when you ask her on a date or anywhere that is remotely private, and she invites her friend. The invited friend keeps the situation casual and is an easy way to escape out of the date. Without a doubt, you stand in terms of strictly a friendship versus an exclusive relationship. Also, this is another tactic women used to say “sorry, I’m not interested,” without even uttering the words.

7: Denial of Romantic or Chivalrous Gestures (Friend Zone Signs)
At this point, it is clear that you are into her and she’s trying to draw the line. You try to open the door for her or try to pull out her chair at dinner and she denies all of your efforts. This is a way of saying that you are just a friend. Good for you for having manners but being a friend doesn’t warrant those actions. Her lack of interest and ability to be receptive only confirms that even more.
6: Questioning Your Interests
What kind of woman are you into? What qualities do you look for? There are a few questions women may ask. While it can be misleading and lead you to think about her as finally wanting to build a future with you, this is typically far from the case. Unfortunately, the woman is not asking because she’s trying to figure out if she fits the bill or not to be your future girlfriend, she’s asking because she knows you’re a great guy and would love to set you up with one of her best female friends.

5: Neutral Conversation (Friend Zone Signs)
Trust me, there are only so many times she can ask you about work and the weather. Keeping the conversation neutral is an easy way to not get too involved in each other’s lives simply because she does not see a fit or a future with you in her life. Getting too involved in each other’s lives can lead to complications and inevitably become emotional. Which are two things that do not go hand in hand when it’s simply a friendship?
4: The Word: “Friend”
If in conversation she utters the words, “you are such a good friend” or “I’m so glad we’re friends,” you are just that, a Friend. A woman will drop subtle hints and phrases in hopes that you understand your role in her life as her friend and it was strictly platonic. While part of this is done subconsciously. She also wants to reinforce the definition of ‘friend’ in hopes of not losing you in her life completely.

3: Physical Contact (Friend Zone Signs)
Sorry guys, hugs do not count as physical contact. Especially if after three seconds into a hug she starts to get squeamish or worse if she ends up with a pat on the back. These are sure friend zone signs. Men often mistake the kindness of women as flirting when in reality women are naturally caring and nurturing. Women know how to make advances to get your attention. It’s safe to say that women will go after it. If there isn’t any physical contact, there isn’t a romantic future.
2: The Introduction
Meeting the people that mean the most to a woman is a big deal. But that does not necessarily mean she sees a romantic future with you. The introduction is simply because the woman sees you as more than an acquaintance and worthy of meeting other equally important people in her life. If she introduces you as her friend, believe her. Just be thankful that she does have high views of you in her life. Don’t let your want for a relationship mess up the existing friendship?

If the woman you are into asks you for advice on a guy that she is interested in, you have inevitably been friend-zoned.
