You bet your clueless ass it does. In most cases, the guy is the one who follows his hot BFF around like a puppy while she changes clothes in front of him, dates lots of guys, tells him about every person she's ever fucked, and how her current boyfriend is a dick. He supports her and tries to tell her how to make her relationship work, disregarding his own feelings for the woman he cares about. He is the nice guy that always finishes last.
I've put people in the friend zone, and I recently found out, its a shitty place to be.
Last week, I was put in the friend zone. I know, blows your fucking mind right? Who wouldn't want my amazing self?!
I have a friend that I like a lot. He is gorgeous, funny as hell, smart and pretty much a nice guy. He is certainly not perfect, but hey, I like him. He has been going through a lot, and I'm there for him. When he found out his ex cheated on him, he called and told me about it. When he was involved in an accident, he came to my house after he left the hospital. When his most current girlfriend dumped him, I was the first person he called.
I suspected it last week, but it was confirmed the other tonight. He called me after his girlfriend dumped him on the side of the street and made him walk with dog piss covered pants. I didn't pick him up. In fact, I was kinda glad it happened. Serves him right for dating a scandalous, gold digging ho instead of me. I didn't tell him I was happy she dumped him, because I could hear how upset he was. He needed someone to talk to, and he wanted sympathy.
I gave it to him. I told him I'd beat her ass for him. I won't really do it, but thats what he wants to hear. He needs a friend, and a good friend tells him, "Dude, she's a deceitful slutbag who just used you to get what she wanted." He needs a friend who understands feelings. He needs a friend who is a girl...and I'm that friend.
I'm the one who has been woken up at 7am, on my day off, twice this week because he "needed someone to talk to." I'm the one he called to pick him up because he had been drinking and couldn't drive. I'm the one he was crying on the phone to because he is "tired of getting hurt." Yep...I'm so far in the friend zone, I've nearly reached BFF status.
The friend zone fucking sucks. Not only do I have to see the guy that I like hurting because some ugly chick that he made a lot of sacrifices for hurt him, but I have to deal with the fact that she probably ruined any chance I'd ever had of being in a relationship with him. Now I know how those guys felt when I did it to them...oops.
I don't take rejection well. I'm not programmed that way. Even though I listen intently and comfort him when he needs it, rest assured I am making it known that I am nothing like the previous girls he has dated. I say things like, "You need a girl who doesn't expect you to buy her anything. You need a girl who will listen when you call and wake her up at 7am. You need a girl who isn't full of high school drama. You need a girl who can hang out with your friends and not be a whore." I may be compassionate and seem selfless, but I'm not going down without a stealthy fight.
He knows I'm the girl he needs, but for now, I'm stuck in the friend zone**...and it fucking sucks.

**If at all possible, I will never use this phrase again. I now hate the word "zone." It sounds ugly.
