When it comes to social interaction between people these days, there’s one specific thing that’s sent from hell and created by the Devil himself, and that’s the friendzone. For the uninitiated (I don’t know how you wouldn’t be, but just making sure), a friend zone is where a guy has a crush on and gets close to a girl, but the girl counts him as a friend or a best friend. It’s been around since forever, but it only recently got this name thanks to the internet, and unfortunately, it still is very much real, as this gallery compiled by 9gag proves.

9. Time to find a new gym
10. I tell you, if my crush put those hashtags on her Instagram photo
I’d make sure I never, ever talked to her ever again.
11. Welcome to the club, dude
12. “I love you”….”as a friend, right?”
13. Locked in the friendzone
14. This is basically saying “I don’t want to talk to you anymore”

20. Deep deep in there
21. Don’t rush things
I learnt that the hard way.
