How Can Women Avoid The Friend Zone?

I was hoping you could offer me some tips about how to avoid being the “homegirl”. I have two older brothers and was a tomboy while growing up. I enjoyed playing with trucks more than I did dolls. I loved being “one of the boys” and bonding with my brothers while watching wrestling or playing catch at the park. In high school and college, I began dressing more feminine and my male friends would sometimes comment that I looked nice in this outfit or that outfit. They would never ask me out on dates though a close male friend told me once that I give off the homegirl vibe. I laugh and joke like “one of the guys”.

I enjoy sports and appreciate good practical jokes. I wonder if my down to earth demeanor takes away from any sort of attraction my males friends could potentially have for me when initially meeting me. I am not interested in dating any of my current male friends, I was just wondering if there were things that I could say or do (without changing who I am and becoming another person entirely) in order to not continue falling into the homegirl category with males that I meet in the future.

Excellent Question!

I don’t think you have to change anything about yourself. You love sports, you have a sense of humour, and you are down to Earth. What man wouldn’t love those qualities?! I can understand you launching a preemptive strike against any man tagging you with the “homegirl” label, especially if you find them attractive. However, there are some points to consider given your situation:

I know you said that you have no interest in dating your male friends. You also said that a close male friend told you that you give off the “homegirl vibe.” I don’t want to question your friendship with these gentlemen, but I don’t know if your friend kept it all the way real with you. We have discussed the concept of opposite sex friendships here, over here, and right thurr. After reading through those excellent pieces [||], and through my own experiences, I think that men and women can be friends. How they end up as friends is a different story. To me, you can be friends with the opposite sex if either a) there’s no attraction whatsoever b) there was a previous intimate relationship of some sort, and you two decided that it would be better to remain platonic or c) you are family of some sort.

Most male/female friendships are born out of some type of attraction or admiration. When men talk about their female friends, even if they wouldn’t ever touch them in their sweet spot, they will acknowledge that you have “touchable” qualities. Unless we are blood related (and in the case of the Lannisters and Targaryens this doesn’t matter), we won’t deny that a woman is attractive. When your male friend tells you that you “give off a homegirl vibe”, does he #REALLYMEAN that HE doesn’t find you attractive? There’s a difference between an attractive woman who doesn’t appeal to a man’s preferences, and an unattractive woman. I know you might say “no sh*t Sherlock” to my last statement, but it’s very poignant to this discussion.

On another note, your male friends might “know” you well enough to know that trying to do anything other than seriously date you is not an option. When we are friends with women, men will usually hear their relationship drama, have a better understanding of women’s thought processes, and get a #nofilter perspective on a woman’s taste in men. Men have a heart when they truly value a woman’s friendship, and will weigh the pros and cons of a physical relationship with you before making a move. Maybe they don’t want to rock the boat. Conversely, there could be some trait you possess that raises red flags for men and they know, but don’t want to tell you. This is when you need that belligerent, well meaning guy friend who will look you dead in the eyes and say “you cute, but that moustache gotta go ma!” You can question a friend’s tact, but you can’t question their heart.

Women rarely have to do anything but be themselves when they want to attract attention. As the poet Chris Rock once said: “women get offered d*ck every day!” I don’t have enough information to determine whether your actions cause you to get tagged as “the homegirl.” However, my advice would be to ask your realest guy and girl friend why they thinks you get friended a lot. Ask them to keep it 100, and pull no punches. be prepared to hear anything, accept the constructive criticism, and see what you have to do to improve your situation. It may even behoove you to beseech people who DON’T know you well, so that you can get an unbiased and respected opinion. If you have to switch up your fashion, your hair style, hit the gym, or perform any other reasonable task to avoid the Friend Zone, embrace the challenge and succeed. There’s no way that the Friend Zone should pertain to women especially if they look good, have a good personality, and do the basics. Women created the Friend Zone as a purgatorial society for emergency d*ck and platonic male companionship. When your own invention becomes Skynet, and you become a homegirl, it has to be more about you than the men. Figure that out, solve the problem, and return to using your feminine wiles to achieve dating success.

Ladies and gentlemen, how can a women avoid being a homegirl and stuck in the friend zone? What actions, either physically or mentally, can women undertake in order to appeal more to men? Would you rather go to your close opposite sex friends, or acquaintances, to determine whether you have friend zone characteristics?

    Good advice. I would also add another point to consider. Could it be that you (the anonymous writer) could be missing any clues that these men may want to be more than friends? I know that sometimes when you only see a guy in one light you may overlook signs through speech and/or action that he may be interested in more. I'm not saying dig for ghastly treasure, but what I am suggesting is analyzing relationships with these male friends to see if every single last one of them are truly 100% platonic. I'm pretty sure that other women commenters (myself included) can speak about situations where interest from the opposite sex was expressed but it flew over our heads until we either figured it out later or someone else brought it to our attention.

    • http://singleblackmale.org Queenbinthestreets..

      I agree with what Streetz said about most hetero friendships being born out of some type of attraction. Could it also be that you are shutting them down unintentionally because you expect right off the bat for them to friend you. Which would make this in turn a self-fulfilling prophecy. I know in my experience with male platonic friends they usually aren't as forward as men you meet under different circumstances. They seem to try to ease their way in subtly to feel out the comfort level threshold. But if you give off the vibe that you aren't down, are uncomfortable, or just downright oblivious…..again maybe these subtle signs (if present) are being overlooked. IDK does this make sense?

          Thanks Tristan! I wasn't sure if I had explained my thoughts well typing so early in the a.m.

          I know we all have experienced a breakdown in communication between "potentials" before so I just wanted to throw that in. For me, before I became more and more immersed in urban culture, I didn't understand what some slang meant like "talking" for example. So if I guy I was initially friends with hit me with "we should talk" or "we should talk on another level" I would respond "about what?" and that response paired with the tone can come off totally wrong because he may keep saying it and I was taking it literally. But as I started to glean what it meant and through urbandictionary.com (which I at times still have to reference)…..*forehead slap*

          Just saying if you are used to directness and that person isn't being direct, there may be a breakdown in communication and you unintentionally just become "the homegirl"

  • http://moacn.wordpress.com Sir Fariku

    You speaking my mind on the matter. Indeed every male female friendship is borne out of some form of attraction, I also agree that sometimes a male keeps that friend zone relationship with a girl because she has told him about her relationship problems, expectations etc, its hard to make a move when you keep thinking, "what if i m like one of those guys she is talking about", so he deads the thought. I dont know what homegirl vibe is but loving sports, being funny and comfortable with the fellas should not get you friend-zoned it should get you wifed if you ask me. We all kind of want our women to have some sort of homegirl vibe I would think.

    First, if she doesn't want to be in the friend zone she can leave. Everyone can leave the friend zone if they are committed to it.

    Now that that is out of the way we can get to the other stuff. My first question is what type of dudes is attracted to? Obviously, no group is a monolith but there are certain similarities within groups. She could constantly be attracted to dude that strongly prefer ultra femme women. And if you don't fit that mold, it doesn't matter how awesome you are he won't be attracted to you. You could either start trying to integrate more femme traits into yourself or try to find guys that love tomboys.

Men don't friendzone chicks they wanna sleep with or would potentially sleep with. That's just the truth. Def take Streetz advice and find someone that will keep it 100 with you and get their opinion.

    In so many words.. You’re unattractive! That, or you don’t “act like a lady.” I know plenty of “attractive” women who stay in the friend-zone because they prefer to wear sneakers over a 5″ heels, sit with their legs wide open, chew with their mouth open, keep a dirty home/car and/or don’t keep up with a daily hygiene routine. But a guy friend or girl friend can definitely answer that.

  • http://twitter.com/itztrizz617 Tristan

    Ladies and gentlemen, how can a women avoid being a homegirl and stuck in the friend zone?

    Honestly, not a thing. If a girl is in my friend zone its usually says i have no interest in dating you and i know better than to smash. To come to this its usually alot of things: physical attraction, how much do i know about her, how much does she know about me, her track record on relationships, likelihood we could remain friends if we dated and broke up and of course my desire to be in a relationship at given time

    What actions, either physically or mentally, can women undertake in

    order to appeal more to men?

    Physically its hard to say, as different guys have different weaknesses but mentally you got to keep one guessing; its frustratingly sexy. Also, there are far too many beautiful women roaming the streets daily for you to think that you can hold a mans attention just off looks, you have to mindf–k a lil bit. And of course this all stems from confidence.

    Would you rather go to your close opposite sex friends, or acquaintances, to determine whether you have friend zone characteristics?

    I would say acquaintances because while friends know u better they also are more likely to pull punches. Also to ask the person you’re feeling is a common mistake, its often misleads you into thinkin okay if i change this and this their mind will change.

    • Queenbinthestreets…

      Oops that reply below was a response to your comment

  • http://singleblackmale.org Queenbinthestreets..

    "her track record on relationships"

    OOooooh this is a big one. I will say sometimes you can make the mistake of telling a man too much, too early and HELP him make up his mind on how to categorize you.

    One time I made the mistake of telling a man that I always seem to attract the crazy men and I'm pretty sure after that convo and the way he responded with "Really?…." I just helped him put me into a "friend" of "fwb" box. (I feel compelled to state that the "fwb" didnt go down lol)

    Don't hurt yourself by talking TOO much!

  • Dr. J

    I really only have a brief piece of constructive feedback that I hope doesn't get attacked. Remember how I preach "consistency"? So my advice to her would be that when she dresses up her friends tell her nice when she dresses more feminine or like a lady if she prefers the tomboy look more then it doesn't count. In their minds they are thinking, "If she dressed like that more often, I could get used to that."

    • chunk

      I've read this a couple times, but I'm confused as to what your advice is…

  • http://twitter.com/Amaris_Acosta @Amaris_Acosta

    I'm going to preface this by saying, in caps, I AM NOT A MAN. I'm saying this because I'm about to share thoughts that men have expressed to me in 3rd person, and I really don't want to get into the "I hate when women think they know what men think" debate.
    There is a really common denominator amongst 'homegirl' types, and IMHO (& personal experience as a former homegirl) it's a defense mechanism for either fear of rejection, or fear of er…certain physical aspect of relationships that you may not be ready for yet (which was my case). You then remove the romace possibility by eliminating ALL forms of "mystery" about you, and hide it under the guise of being "down to earth". You may hang with the boys, but you match them burp for burp, drink for drink. You talk about your men problems in EXPLICIT detail. Your men friends may have seen you in VARIOUS states of dissaray (face masques, unkempt clothing, head scarves & pj's, you get it).

    • http://twitter.com/Amaris_Acosta @Amaris_Acosta

      You may even LIKE yourself when you look more feminine, but it's a hell of a lot easier to get rejected in pj's than to get rejected after you have taken two hours to primp (or in my case, it's easier to deal with the lack of attention from looking a mess than the uncomfortable attention you get when primped).
      My advice is to pull back on being "all out there" with your guy friends. Get comfortable NOT revealing everything about yourself upon 1st meeting. Don't CHANGE yourself, but consciously choose to reveal PARTS of yourself (like, the feminine side, lol!) at a time. Men like a down-to-earth woman, but they would also like to feel like they were worth putting in some EFFORT for (We like that as women, too, remember?). Yeah, he thinks you're prettiest in just his t-shirt, but that's AFTER he took your LBD & heels off.

  • B

    I was the one who asked Streetz for advice I really appreciate everyone’s input! I just wanted to add a few things that I didn’t share in my initial email and that I have concluded since reading your comments:

    1) I’m 5′.9.5″, so when I wear (5in.) heels and go out, I usually tower over a lot of guys and that automatically puts them in MY friend zone. I just have a preference for taller men.

    2) Every once in a while I encounter a man my height or taller. Often times, they say they are in relationships or dating someone. I think my pseudo-narcissistic personality (don’t judge, we’re all a little narcissistic on the inside… well hopefully) leads me to believe that I am so amazing (funny, pretty, fit, laid-back) that he should want to run away with me and elope immediately despite being involved with other women. I’m now realizing that this is a bad mentality to have. I never really even thought about how I would feel about him leaving another woman for me, what that would say about his character, and if that would mean he would do the same thing to me in the future. I’m usually too wrapped up in “being on my Kim K” and thinking that I’m a perfect catch for every man. I am realizing that thinking I’m so great that I would be perfect for any guy is also not a great mindset to have. I think it’s clouding me from remembering what I really like and look for in a guy instead of just trying to attract A guy.

    3) Most of the males I have developed friendships with are either not looking for a relationship at all or dating/talking to other women. When Streetz said “Men have a heart when they truly value a woman’s friendship, and will weigh the pros and cons of a physical relationship with you before making a move”, that hit home. In most, if not all of the friendships I have developed with men (either through seeking advice or through conversations we had during a courting stage that eventually fizzled out and led us to be friends) I have expressed disinterest in casual sex and interest in a serious relationship. I think these guys have come to realize that they won’t be able to smash without me thinking “We go together now nigga!” and understanding that our friendship may end if they wind up not being able to commit

    p.s:  @ Chris- I am very lady like. I am a borderline OCD teacher who maintains a neat classroom, car and home. I workout often during the week and I don’t chew food or gum with my mouth open. I would’ve have made similar guesses if I was in your position, read the post and didn’t know myself either so don’t take this as an attack. Just letting you know.

    Sorry for the dissertation,

    -B

    • http://twitter.com/Amaris_Acosta @Amaris_Acosta

      Thanks for the extra info! My "input" remains the same, because we womenfolk can do the exact same thing in many forms, not just physical. Since you took time to note your tomboyish ways I used tomboyish examples, but there are many ways we shut things down before they start by adopting a cross-armed "this is all of me take it or leave it" attitude.

    • Bree

      Hey B.
      I agree with Tristian's comments posted 4 hrs ago…there really isn't anything concrete as in a recipe to follow to avoid the friend zone. Love has no rhyme or reason and there are no guarantees.
      What you can do is not worry about it. Continue to be yourself and be patient and I'm quite sure a man who is really into you will come along and sweep you off your feet.
      Also, you answered your own question in your entire response, but particularly when you said this – " Most of the males I have developed friendships with are either not looking for a relationship at all or dating/talking to other women."
      And this – " I think these guys have come to realize that they won't be able to smash without me thinking "We go together now nigga!" and understanding that our friendship may end if they wind up not being able to commit."

      • Bree

        That's your answer in a nutshell. You cannot control who you meet and what they want, and/or don't want and where they are in their station in life when you meet them.
        What you can do is be open to ALL races, ethnicities and cultures. Start being open to shorter men. I personally know a few very short men 5'7 and under and they looooove tall women, and they are "Good Men" who are ready, willing, and able to commit and eventually marry and have children.
        Be very mindful of the "type" of man your attracted to and that you attract. What you probably need to change, but may not want to change, is the type of man your attracted to physically. And this is not to say that all tall, very attractive, sexy, successful men with swag do not want to be in committed relationships and get married and have children, I'm sure there are some that do. However there don't seem to be too many, at least from my personal experience.

        • Bree

          Start paying more attention to men you meet who tell you they would like to settle down, and look forward to getting married and having kids, much like the men here on SBM say.
          You may not be all that physically attacted to these guys, but these are the type of men you say you want since your want a serious relationship.
          Definitely if your telling men no to sex before a serious relationship, that right there will get you friend-zoned quicker than a NY minute.
          No matter what though stay true to yourself, and don't compromise who you are and what you want.
          Good Luck

      "Most of the males I have developed friendships with are either not looking for a relationship at all or dating/talking to other women."

      Stick to your guns. You probably would prefer to be friends on good terms than have been pumped and dumped by these guys. You obviously are running into guys that may be good dudes, but they just aren't ready for a relationship. They may be ready later, and by being friends you are in their back pocket, but you aren't under any obligations. Patience is a virtue.

    Good advice, Streetz. Totally enjoyed this piece. (#pause)

    This right here would make any homegirl reevaluate their homegirl status:

    "Most male/female friendships are born out of some type of attraction or admiration."

    As someone who can easily fall into homegirl status due to my sense of humor, laid-backness, and love of basketball, I often get friend-zoneded, but if I were REALLY real with myself… I'd look back and notice that pretty much all of my friendships aren't totally platonic. There is always a double entendre thrown, an expression of some attraction, an inappropriate joke here, and inappropriate touch there… but of course, I keep looking at the fact that they won't make me their boo as meaning they ain't into me beyond friendship or don't even see me as a chick! Which ain't true. Getting older, I totally believe most men start friendships based on some type of attraction because they're such visual creatures.

  • CPT Callamity

    Ladies and gentlemen, how can a women avoid being a homegirl and stuck in the friend zone?

    Homegirls comes down to one thing with me: comfort. I can curse, belch, act a fool, tell off color jokes and tease her a bit without her getting bent out of shape and trying to correct my behavior. In some ways she feels like one of the guys but it's more of a thing where I don' t have to have a filter with her. That's just the first part. Next, if I'm not attracted to her physically or she doesn't know how to flaunt her sexy successfully, I more than likely would consider her just cool and friend zone her. It's a bit more complex in reality…

    What actions, either physically or mentally, can women undertake in order to appeal more to men?

    It all comes down to your feminine representation. I don't want another dude to pair up with and I certainly don't want a frumpy friend. Knowing how to show just enough without going overboard is one thing. If we're considering you for a gf/wifey/whatever then we want someone who looks and acts the part. So physically we would have to see you as someone that compliments us and represents that yin to our yang and all that. Then we want to know that your mind works congruently as well. Do you know how to relax instead of bringing up ish we did 3 weeks ago? Do you know how to enjoy a sports event without asking dumb blonde jokes or protesting that we should change the channel to Lifetime? You to know your intended man's angle and what he wants in regards of a mate and be that.

    Would you rather go to your close opposite sex friends, or acquaintances, to determine whether you have friend zone characteristics?

    I don't worry about friend zone characteristics. Either you're into me or you're not. I don't need much validation or an analysis from anyone because I'm receptive enough to figure out if she's feeling me like that.

  • chunk

    Good question, great post! I've battled this since high school. I agree with this advice:

    "Ask them to keep it 100, and pull no punches. be prepared to hear anything, accept the constructive criticism, and see what you have to do to improve your situation."

    I've done this. It was _EXTREMELY_ helpful.

    The most common answer I already knew: "You're fat."
    The most common answer that I didn't realize: "If I didn't know you, I would assume you're gay."

    It was eye opening and led to great conversation, actually.

    And I do notice a difference in the kind of attention I get when I'm in super-gurly mode, compared to at the bar watching football in my fitted and Js… which matters in terms of initial catergorization.

    And losing weight has also began to balance the friend zone vs dating interests ratio.

  • cynicaloptmst81

    First, I don't care if I'm alone in this thought or not…but the Friendship Zone is a myth! Its a polite way to say I am NOT interested in having a love relationship with you ("I only see you as a friend."). If we're attracted to you in a "he could get it" kind of way, there's no way you'll ever find yourself in any zone other than the Option Zone. I feel this way about women putting fellas in this so called Friendship Zone…and I feel this way about men doing it as well.

    Now guys can…uh…have "fun"…with women they have no intention of having anything serious with. But, not with chicks they really REALLY like, appreciate, and care about…or at least not without feelings getting involved (the movie, Friends With Benefits, anyone?). So, if they've decided you aren't it, they'll pass on "fun" and preserve the friendship.

    • cynicaloptmst81

      "Most male/female friendships are born out of some type of attraction or admiration." <<<<<THIS IS THE TRUTH.COM! Whether it be your stunning looks or pleasant personality, something hooks that guy initially…cause y'all weren't friends when you first met. And I think Streetz offered great advice to help you determine why these fellas have chosen to pass on dating you.

      One of my male friends is option B for me. The rest are the spouses of my closest female friends…one was engaged when we got tight. So these men were pretty much forced into option C, lol. Others, I grew up with but we never had that kind of chemistry…and the thought is gross cause we grew up together like family…which forces them into option C. I do not have the capacity to chop it up one-on-one on a consistent basis with FINE men that I can laugh, joke and be real with…with them doing/feeling the same…and just be friends, LOL! Its just not possible for me. I've had to back off from several SEVERAL SEVERAL men cause we were vibing waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much. So…um…yeah, lol.

    • bellatrice1

      Totally agree with all of this!! Finally, someone kept it real!

      I think the "friend zone" = not interested, but I also think the someone in the friend zone could = interested later on down the line if she is a good catch and the issue is that she wants a serious relationship. Maybe when they're ready for a serious relationship, they'll look to her…

      I've never been friend zoned, and it sounds like she and I are a lot alike…love football, joking around, have 2 brothers (so I'm super comfy around men), and they feel comfy around me. Like someone else said, guys love these qualities in a woman they're attracted to. They don't think friend. They think wifey/girlfriend.

  • http://www.wildcougarconfessions.com Wild Cougar

    Nobody’s talking about the timing issue. Say you meet a guy and there is mutual attraction. But you do your homegirl thing right off the bat, thinking friendship can turn into more. Then you get to know each other so well that it becomes awkward to bring up the romantic question. You side step it and each person figures the other isnt interested. The risk is now too high. If you screw it up, you could lose a friend. So you just rule that person out unless they make an obvious gesture. But theyre scared to take the risk, too. So youre stuck.

    • Bree

      Damn Wild Cougar you hit that right on…..that was going to be my other exception to the "not interested" argument.
