    Mildly sour- but more sour than not.

    This has happend to me before on numerous occasions. But it's like Jennifer said, it happens to all kinds of people. I've seen all kinds of people get friend zoned. But what's nice is when I do, we usally lose contact inside of a year. So then it's not a burden on me or the other person. Although I did go out with my best friend for a day and a half. But broke it off because her dad didn't approve. But that's starting to push off topic and for another time. Back to the topic at hand, I'd have to echo Jennifer and say that it happens to a lot of people, not just INTPs.

    I have given this topic some thought.
    In all of these cases, one is simply not sexually attracted to the other.
    This is why it stays at friendship.

    People call me shallow for my views but it is true- we are all simply a bunch of horny beings. No relationship ever starts without some form of sexual attraction.
    By playing the role as a 'friend' (especially in the case of a man being a friend to a woman)- the woman will normally not be sexually attracted to the man.
    This is how things work.
    This is how women think- they need that spark when they are around my age.
    At the end, a woman may settle for a man she is not sexually attracted to if she feels that man is someone she can live with, keep her safe, and be a friend. She may realize that the men that she finds irresistible are a poor match for her.
    The same goes with men and picking less-than-attractive women.

    Men and women think the same way in this respect.
    However, society encourages women to deny that they have these impulses.
    Most do a poor job at proving that they prefer love and companionship over sex.
    Society encourages men to relish in what is the truth that sex is #1.

    I think it happens to a lot of people.
    It's either a misconception of what romantic interest is and then people confuse close friend relationships with attraction, or a wrongly oriented attraction that ended up in a friendship by mistake.

    INTPs just need to read a few seduction manuals. Falling for a friend (and being stuck there) is a common mistake that an INTP, once knowledgeable about the true workings of sexual attraction, can easily avoid.
    Other types like F's are more vulnerable as they will not act by reason but insist in doing what they perceive as right, which in this particular field usually leads them nowhere good.

    haha lol typical INTP fashion analyze it from all perspectives in a detached way before learning and acting in real time.
