The misery that many broken hearts have been going through since ages has now acquired an official status. Yes, the friend zone has got an ‘official logo’, thus bringing to life the nightmares many have been secretly living.
While many of us would distinctly remember Joey as the least brightest of the FRIENDS, his observation way back in the 1990s itself, about Ross’ obsession with Rachel and her subsequent reaction, just shows how ahead of his time, he was! “No, Ross, you are the Mayor of the Zone!”, he had said matter-of-factly, in all wisdom.
Ross’ legacy was held high and kept through the generations by people of both sexes ever since, irrespective of the common notion that only men were friend-zoned. Yes, innumerable memes, trolls and advice came up online and in personal conversations, about how could one escape the Zone. Most times, the advice never really worked, and people continued to hear the most painful words that made their entry into the zone official — “I love you, friend.”
To add to that misery, this Reddit user decided that people who have never been friend-zoned, must also know the pain. So, the user going by the name Dro2614, gladly posted the logo which shows one hand shaped like a half-heart and the other as a thumbs up. Since then ,the logo has resonated with millions of people, and has got close to 3 million views on Imgur!
Though the picture also shows the guy smiling, it is hard to unsee the pain in his eyes!
The post was soon picked up on Facebook too, and here are some of the hilarious reactions.
A user even went ahead and declared him the leader of the zone!
Congratulations guys, your (imaginary) relationship with her/him has a logo now!
