Ah, the Friend Zone. It's more common than you might think. You are safe, reliable, sensitive, comfortable to be around and probably always available. Women value that and taking it to the next level would throw it into jeopardy. Barring some sort of rom-com series of incidents there's no way out of the Friend Zone, or at least that's been my experience with the lovely Amanda
.We have so much fun, but it's never going to happen. Apart from anything else I went to school with her husband and some things are sacred. So eventually, after working on a script we were co-writing - and a few glasses of wine - I straight up asked 'Can you fix me up with a date with a high possibity of sex, and do you have any suggestions on how to increase that possibility.?'
She was very helpful and well connected.. I found myself invited to dinner parties with recent divorcees, with very mixed results But I was always well briefed beforehand. I'm not saying that will always happen, but if women friends talk to you in confidence then you can do the same with them. Probably.
