I've never been friend-zoned; I usually end up with someone who indicates interest, and I think to myself, "Actually, I quite like them too". I find it disgusting to "friend-zone" someone. In the past, if someone had feelings for me that weren't returned, I would simply cut ties with them. Gotta be cruel to be kind.
ETA: I don't actively fall for people? I just add them to my list of "People I would say yes to if they asked first".
