    Is it just the wrong timing or did I get friend zoned?

    There is a guy who I have known for years and, as I perceived, started to flirt with me about a month (introducing his touch such as putting his arm around me and rubbing my back; paying attention to what I am saying and remembering details of past conversations; eye contact). However, when I asked him out he said he was seeing someone else. He said that he felt more comfortable around and that is why he started to become more attentive and affectionate. He also said he has run into this problem before. He said that he was still interested in going out as friends, but he didn’t say that he wasn’t interested in me as a romantic partner or dating material. So I am wondering if I have been friend zoned (this has never happened to me before) or if they timing is just off and if he wasn’t already seeing someone that I would have a chance.

    “when I asked him out he said he was seeing someone else.” – That’s all that matters!
    The whole “he didn’t say that he wasn’t interested in me as a romantic partner or dating material.” is false hope.

    You’ve known this guy (for years) and he’s never asked you out on a date.
    Clearly he’s never looked at you in a romantic sense.
    In a world with over 7 billion people rejection just means: NEXT!

    The so called “friend zone” is anyone who finds them self with a crush on someone who has no romantic interest in them.
    Generally speaking they never reveal their true feelings for fear of being rejected.
    Applaud yourself for putting your cards on the table and finding out where you stand.
    Rejection saves everyone time. Don’t accept “friendship” as a consolation prize,
    Move on! Suffering is optional.
