“You see what’s exciting about someone like you is you’ve got opinions—most people your age are so frightened of giving offence, they can hardly forge a sentence. I mean if you’re not offending someone each time you open your mouth, can’t really call yourself a thinker, can you?”
– Jeremy, “Posh” by Laura Wade
Men who complain about the “friendzone” don’t know what friendship is. For the record, friendship is when you care about another person’s well-being. The end. And the only thing your friend owes you is to care about your well-being in return.
Friendship isn’t biding your time until your “friend” trusts you enough to accept your penis. That’s manipulation, and don’t be surprised when the woman you are trying to manipulate takes offense when she realizes that you were being nice to her not because you care about her well being, but because you wanted to bang her.
This isn’t to say friendship can’t turn into sex or a relationship. When you care about someone, it’s natural to see him in the best light. You might one day find you’re attracted to your friend even though you weren’t when you met, because now you know him and you like what you’ve come to know. This happens. But it only happens for people who actually are friends. Which means opening yourself up to women as people with something to offer other than sex. Which means not using “friendship” as a tactic to get laid.
“The (500) Days of Summer attitude of “He wants you so bad” seems attractive to some women and men, especially younger ones, but I would encourage anyone who has a crush on my character to watch it again and examine how selfish he is. He develops a mildly delusional obsession over a girl onto whom he projects all these fantasies. He thinks she’ll give his life meaning because he doesn’t care about much else going on in his life. A lot of boys and girls think their lives will have meaning if they find a partner who wants nothing else in life but them. That’s not healthy. That’s falling in love with the idea of a person, not the actual person.”

Ugh, I’m sorry to double post with two quotes, but he’s dropping another truth bomb here. I hate when people misinterpret 500DOS and think of Summer as some kind of bitch, or, alternately, as a Manic Pixie Dream Girl. That’s only how his character saw her. To me, this movie was basically about Nice Guy Syndrome: A guy who thinks he’s just so nice that he’s entitled to the woman he wants, and when she decides she doesn’t want him back, she becomes a bitch, or a whore.

“one of my friends who’s been involved in OW as a BYU student was just threatened with the “resign or else” ultimatum by her old stake president (who will personally reside over the process in a far away city).
Her, and others like her, will likely face excommunication quietly in the eclipse of more notorious individuals like JD and KK.
Normally I’d include some sort of quip here, but this speaks volumes by itself.”
