Ah, the friend zone. When it comes to relationships and crushes, there are few things worse than being stuck there. No one likes to hear their crush of all crushes say something like, “Aw, you are SUCH a good friend,” or “I need some advice on this person I like.” Ugh.
I’ve learned a lot about the friend zone thanks to some of my favorite TV shows and movies. There are tons of fictional characters out there who were stuck in the friend zone. Since that’s Hollywood and not real life, most of these characters eventually leave the friend zone – but that doesn’t mean we can’t feel for them as they deal with it over, like, seven consecutive seasons or whatever. Check out these TV and movie characters from the ’90s (and early 2000’s) who helped us realize how much it sucks to be friend zoned.
Which of these characters is your favorite? Have you ever been stuck in the friend zone? Which characters did I miss? Tell me in the comments!
