The dreaded friend zone is so easy to slip into if you aren’t careful, especially when you really like a person a lot. It often happens that two people have a great time together, but they don’t share the same feelings for each other. One of them might be loving the fact they have someone so close and sincere to talk to, while the other one might be burning with desire for them.
People are often very complicated, and our relationships can’t always be precisely defined. Does your crush act silly around you? Do they tell you all of their secrets? Do they tease you from time to time? Do you feel they might be trying to make you jealous? Is it possible that you’ve been reading the signs all wrong? These are the questions each of us has asked ourselves at least once. Even though it sounds like the most logical thing to do, it’s not easy to ask someone if they are really into us, especially when we already have a great relationship with that person. So, what do we do? We read the signals.
Some people are masters of reading mixed signals, but others don’t know what to think or how to make the relationship go a step further. You might jeopardize a beautiful friendship if you tell your crush about your feelings, but what if they feel the same?
If you're falling for someone who keeps sending mixed signals and you dread the awful friend zone, take this quiz to find out exactly where the two of you are going!
