19 People Stuck In The Friend Zone (PHOTOS)

The "friend zone" is a place in which no one wants to be, whether it means you're holding a purse, assisting with a shopping date or, in the case of the guy above, literally letting someone walk all over you.

But being stuck in the friend zone is a common occurrence in today's society. So common, in fact, that the phrase has recently been added to Oxford English Dictionary as, "a situation in which a platonic relationship exists between two people, one of whom has an undeclared romantic or sexual interest in the other." Unfortuantely for the 19 "best friends" below, that is exactly the situation they are stuck in.

These guys go above and beyond with their friendship duties and we think any girl would be lucky to have them. Check out 19 people who are stuck in the friend zone below and let’s hope they make it out alive.
