The Friend Zone Test

leave a comment »

If there’s one question that guys ask me more than anything else, it’s “Am I in the Friend Zone with this girl?” Take it, and calculate your scores at the end. It will tell you if you still have a chance with the girl you’re lusting after, of if she already considers you “a really good friend.” Good luck, you’ll probably need it if you’re taking this test.

The Friend Zone Test

Bonus Question: Has she ever told you that she’s looking for a guy just like you, or that you’ll make some girl a great boyfriend one day?

Test Results – Give yourself 2 points for every time you answered a; 4 points for every b; 8 points for c; 12 points for d; and an extra 15 points if you answered yes to the bonus.

100-75 – Yes indeedy, you are smack dab in the middle of the Friend Zone with this girl. You own The Zone. You’re mayor of The Zone. You have no chance of getting together with her. Move on. Quickly.

75-51 – You’re in The Zone. You don’t own it as much…but you’re still there. Sorry. The sooner you find another girl, the better for you.

50-36 – There’s hope for you yet. You’re not quite there, but you can be if you do nothing. Don’t let the friendship go any further until you make your intentions clear to her. The Zone is avoidable, so long as you play your cards right.

35 and below – You are in a great position! Keep up what you’re doing, and before long you can have this girl chasing after you! Just don’t string her along for too long, or she’ll lose interest.
