Ah, the good ol’ friend zone and how all the friends who are put there are there not by choice. Convoluted enough? The friend zone is where the rejectee gets put by the rejector when the message is “I don’t want to go to bed with you. Ever. Let’s be friends — it’s SO MUCH MORE SUPERIOR.”
That’s like someone saying, “Oh, I could never think of you sexually! I respect you too much!” Oh… So, I’m not sexy because you respect me so much. Yay. That’s what the zodiac signs who get friend zoned are used to. And thanks to astrology, we can determine just who they are.
Still, there’s always someone who seems to get friend zoned more than they possibly deserve. It doesn’t matter what you look like, as it’s rarely about looks, but it is always about chemistry. When you’re not feeling it for a friend that is feeling it big time for you, that’s when there’s either a problem, or someone calls “friend zone” in to draw boundaries and let you know who’s who!
Who are these unlucky sad sacks, who time and again find themselves being convinced by love interests that their friendship is SO MUCH more valuable than anything they could possibly offer in bed (much cheerful laughter ensues)? Let’s see who the top zodiac signs who get friend zoned are.
1. PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
If the Law of Attraction is as spot on as I suspect it is, then Pisces sort of writes their own fate when it comes to being rejected and zoned. They anticipate rejection strongly, and in turn, they create it.
Pisces may be unfairly friend zoned simply because they influence their person of desire by implanting premonitions of doom.
2. GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
So nice and kind and patient are Gemini that they almost always push their lovers-to-be into positions where they, the Gemini, are perceived as “too good” for the vulnerable and harsh reality of a “real” relationship.
Geminis are “spared” being in a relationship mostly due to their tendency to let things go unsaid for too long.
3. LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
Known as the flirt of the zodiac, Libra’s good intentions and polite banter may do more than get them perceived as flirts; it may actually get them seen as thirsty creepers and instantly revoked of all real flirtation rights.
Libras come across as lascivious, and for some, that can be a turn-off. For some…
4. CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
That elitist attitude that is there for Capricorn to use at their will is part of what can be charming about this sign. They are snobs, but if you’re in “their”‘ crowd, you are somehow happy because of it.
It’s weird. They’re a bit precious… and annoying. And this air of superiority is something they think will attract lovers when, in fact, it mostly attracts invitations to Friend Zone Park.
5. AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
Of all the signs that get deservedly friend zoned, Aquarius would be the top contender, as they usually richly deserve it. Aquarius lives on another planet and it’s a dirty place where no one has any manners, and people hover and pry and demand attention at the wrong time.
Aquarius falls in love with friends, throws tantrums and acts inappropriately, and then, thankfully, gets friend zoned. Like a stun gun.
6. SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
Well, they are Scorpio and no one really wants that kind of upkeep and commitment anyway, so the chances of Scorpio getting friend zoned while in the line of duty are pretty dang high.
Scorpio is a demanding sign, and while they may seriously have great intentions, they’re just so overbearing and controlling that it seems a forewarning and an omen on how a romantic relationship with one might play out. Eek.
