Welcome to Friend Zone. The Friend Zone, contrary to popular belief, is a good place to be!
Let me explain why.
You’ve been Friend Zoned…
This is how the Urban Dictionary defines ‘friendzone‘:
A particularly aggravating metaphorical place, that people end up in when someone they are interested in only wants to be friends. It is impossible to get over someone while in the friendzone, because, as friends, you still see them too often for them to be erased from your memory, and yet, you cannot be with them the way you want.
Almost everyone sees the ‘friendzone’ as a bad thing. But why?
We are here to say, to be a friend is not secondary to romance. This is not to say that romantic relationships are bad – but they are not everything!
Friendship is a good thing
We all know that friendship is a good thing, right? And yet the statistics don’t lie: loneliness is an epidemic, especially amongst younger people. Why should this be the case?
There are several reasons why – and we’ve created this website to help explore why that should be the case, and help people to realise that friendship is one of the best things there is.
In particular, we believe that men and women can – and even should – be friends. The friendzone is often used to describe a relationship between a man and a woman which doesn’t live up to expectation (i.e. romance). But non-romantic, non-sexual relationships between men and women are important, healthy and even necessary for us.
You might be thinking all this is obvious. Maybe so. But if you need more convincing, read about why our society has a problem.
Friendship is a gift from God
Everyone is welcome here, but we make no secret of the fact that we write from a Christian perspective. We believe the Bible is absolutely relevant to every day life, and we hope to show you how the Bible relates to this area of life.
