The friend zone is well known among most people (unless you're considered hot, then you just get all the girls), but there's a zone beneath the zone...

That zone my friends, is the "classmate zone." This is the worst zone to be in. Not only do you not have a shot with the girl, you can't even hang out with her outside of class, as friends, because she only wants to be "friends" in a classroom setting. Awesome...


Now, some of you may have guessed that I'm currently in this zone. I just started school again (at the unfortunately named CSUCI), and there is an incredibly cute girl in three of my four classes, and she sat next to me on the first day, and said she wants to be "friends." I also learned on that first day she has a boyfriend. No big deal, I never had a shot with her in the first place, and even if I did, I'm a patient man. But after spending some time with her for the second time during our long break between our classes, things didn't improve, and during a later text conversation, she essentially said she put me in the "classmate zone."

Now, I've been screwed before, and wasted a shit load of time on a girl, and I will never make that mistake again. But in this instance, do I try and become real friends with her, or just not even bother and leave her alone? I'm voting for leaving her alone because it was clear after today she really doesn't want to socialize outside of school. How do I know? I asked her if she had any friends she didn't like who she could set me up with (I thought that was hilarious by the way), and she made it clear she didn't want to hang to out with me, and that she didn't want to set me up with anyone.

But what do you all think?

Thanks for your time.
