One of the biggest myths in the world if dating is that the friend zone is a terrible place to be. People often believe that the friend zone is bad because it is so closely tied to rejection. When a guy finds out he is in the friend zone, usually all ties are broken no real friendship ever ensues. This type of behavior should be reserved for immature and inexperienced daters. There are plenty of reasons why being in the friend zone can benefit you greatly. After reading this article, and learning about the benefits of being in the friend zone, you'll be more likely to embrace it.

1. Improve Your Confidence and Comfort Level With Girls
The first reason why being in the friend zone is a good thing is that by becoming friends with more girls, you'll be able to improve your confidence and comfort level with girls. This is especially helpful if you don't have very much experience with girls and want to be more relaxed and natural around them. This will make future dates less awkward and more successful. By spending more time around other girls, going on dates will be easier and less stressful for you.

There is one downside to becoming more comfortable around girls though. If you become a little too comfortable with being around girls, you might soften up and change for the worse. To avoid making this mistake, make sure you are yourself around girls and don't change yourself to fit in with them. If you do that, you're more likely to find yourself in the friend zone again.

2. More Opportunities To Meet New Women
One great benefit of being in the friend zone is that it gives you new opportunities to meet new women. If you are outgoing enough you'll end up meeting friends of the girl who friend zoned you, which can grow your pool of dating prospects. This will make it easier for you to bounce back and recover after being put in the friend zone. The more often you find yourself in the friend zone, the more opportunities you'll find to meet new women. This will help speed up the process of finding the right girl for you.

3. Lingering Possibility Of Becoming More Than A Friend
The lingering possibility of becoming more than a friend is the main reason why guys stay in the friend zone with girls. It usually never happens, but that doesn't mean it's impossible. If you know what you're doing and can play your cards right, you can turn things around in your favor. If you choose to stay in the friend zone for this reason, it's important not to suffocate the girl of your affection. If you try too hard, you'll come off as needy and pathetic and she'll be scared away.

4. Free Dating and Relationship Advice
If you get into the friend zone with a girl and keep her around instead of shunning her, you'll have a reliable source of free dating and relationship advice in the future. This can make it easier for you to work through the issues you're having in your love life and can sometimes be less embarrassing than asking your guy friends for help. So take advantage of this kind of advice if you ever need it.

5. No Other Guys Take Advantage Of Being In The Friend Zone
The last reason why the friend zone is a great place to be is that no other guys ever takes advantage of it. With less competition around, it becomes much easier for you to reap the rewards of being in the friend zone. Most guys don't know how to deal with rejection and cut off all ties with girls who reject them. Rejection isn't any fun, but if you're confident in yourself and don't take everything personally, you'll be seen as far more attractive than most guys. So don't sweat it if you're put in the friend zone and take advantage of the opportunity instead.
