Like I said that’s the difference between men and women we do friendzone people. We don’t spend our time engaging in friendships with people we see as potential romantic partners. If we wanted to date them we would! We make friends with men the same way we do with other women. Ask yourself would you want to date one of your male friends? I bet you are going to say no that’s icky! When you are a friend to a woman that’s exactly how she feels about dating you. She’s just not attracted to you in that way. It does not mean you are not attractive or that she does not think you would make a good partner for someone else but not her. I hug my female friends tight so do most women. I suspect most men don’t hug each other tight. So it causes confusion. Male to male friendships are so much different than female to female. Women treat their male friends the same as female friends but since men are not used to that it confuses them. Liking things on social media also means nothing. You see it as her dating a lot of jerks instead of you. And you are a great candidate so why would she chose them? Except to her you are not a great or even a good candidate because she’s not attracted to you. She’s just not. You know how you are attracted to certain people and not others? How someone can look great on paper but you feel nothing? That’s what it is. It’s not complex. You are making it complex because you don’t like the answer.
