So, the lady friend and I were talking about a guy... friend of hers, shall we say, who's been pining over her, in spite of the fact that he knows she's in a committed relationship. So, as he recounts it now, he's in the friendzone, because he was too nice a guy. Really short and sweet: 1. Can you be too "nice" when you're courting someone. 2. What are your thoughts on the "friendzone"?
