Do you ever get friend crushes on people, but not want to scare them away by coming on too strong?  Sometimes I meet someone and I just want to sit and listen to them talk all day or talk with them online all the time, but then I'm like, no, then people will think you are a stalker.  Or maybe it's not romantic at all, and you don't want to give the wrong impression.  I try to play it cool, but I don't know how much "cool" shows that you don't care about them one way or the other.

You can reply to this question or post your own "Do you ever...?"

I don't think I like the term "friend zone."  What I wouldn't give to be in the "friend zone" with someone!

Well I don't know about you, but when I have friends, I usually have fun with them.

This happened to me, too. One guy I knew from work asked me for my phone number, and I was super flattered because I hadn't had anyone show any interest in me since my ex and I split up. Well, we had a couple dates, then I wound up kind of scaring him away because I was too clingy. I felt really stupid >.<  

Sorry. I've done that before, but it wasn't someone from work, so I never had to see him again...

 Yes, I have the friend crush problems too—but of the nonromantic kind. I don’t have any good friends where I live, and it’s partially because I really don’t like a lot of people. So when I do find someone I get along with, I just want to be good friends instantly. And that scares people. I think my goal now is to try to make a total of around 5 friends so I can be a little clingy to each of them. But, I don’t have a lot of money, so it’s always hard to be like, “I don’t know you that well, but I think you are pretty neat, so let’s hang out at my place and eat top ramen.”

I would say "I am allergic to MSG.  Can we make ramen with natural vegetarian broth?"

I rarely have romantic crushes, which is romantically frustrating, but lots of friend crushes, which is also frustrating because I am shy.

I do also like to make a vegan hummus platter (with homemade hummus & homemade bread to keep the cost down), but it's also weird to say, "I want to be your friend, come over and consume hummus with me!"

Although, this may work in Eugene!


I agree with Gary. That's the best pick up line I've ever heard xD 

I do that.  When I develop a crush on someone, I tend to avoid talking to them for fear that I'll be like one of those crazy stalker people.  This isn't really the best method of developing a relationship for obvious reasons....


All the time! I remember I knew this girl but not really well. So one day after school I decided to tag along as she went to meet some friends, who I was also friends with. Plus she was going in the same direction as I needed to go. Needless to say the trip from school to our friends helped cement our friendship. And now even though we don't see each other often, we still squeal like children when we see each other.
