It can be one of life's WORST things when you have feelings for someone and they make it clear that they just see you as a friend.

So . . . has that ever happened to you?  According to a new survey, nearly 6 out of 10 f people say yes, someone's put them in the FRIEND ZONE.

That includes 50% of people who've had it happen to them in the past . . . and 8% who are living through it right now.

And this prompts the question...can men and women be just friends?
