They always want to know about your love life As well as telling you about their conquests your ‘friend’ is always asking whether you’ve ‘met anyone nice recently’.Admittedly, they could be asking to rule out any competition, but along with other signs on this list, you can be pretty sure you’re in the ‘friend zone’.I keep trying to connect romantically with people, because I'm in college and it feels like I'm supposed to, and beyond that, I'm not great at making friends and Tinder, for all its faults, gives me a way to talk to people and feel less lonely, but the whole dating thing absolutely baffles me.Why date when you could instead get a dog, spend time with friends, and if you want, have sex with whichever of your friends/acquaintances you have a mutual attraction? There are so many things we can be doing with our lives—enjoying careers, pursuing interests, picking up new hobbies, travelling.
