5 Relationship Zones Worse Than ‘The Friend Zone’

relationship-status

The Internet loves hating on “the friend zone,” because the Internet sees friendship as the highest form of torture. I’m not here to explain that “being in the friend zone” says less about the person who “put” you there than it does about the skewed way you view relationships (although, yes, someone should teach you that at some point). I am here to tell you that you’re focusing so much energy on avoiding the friend zone that you’re missing the REAL threats. Educate yourself on the five other relationship zones of torture…

“I got really sick of being force fed these warped and unrealistic expectations of love.
