Do women in their 30s and 40s still friend zone guys? Asking for a friend?

I friend zone people I want to be friends with when there's not any chemistry and the guy isn't giving me the eyes when he sees me so I think he's fine being friends. I'm a bit of a tomboy at heart so it's always been natural for me to have male friends.

I relate, some guys who had crush on me but we didn’t have good chemistry are some of my best friends. We laugh about it at times.

I don’t. No one has time for faux friends.

Friendzone is more than an acquaintance but less than a real friend. Unlike a friendship, there’s one person that’s sitting there hoping and pining and being a fake friend in hopes of maybe someday getting in your pants. It’s uncomfortable and unnecessary. Everyone needs to grow a pair and move on.

I’m a guy and disagree that friendzoned guys can’t be a “real friend.” Some of my closest friends are girls I initially had a crush on. One I ended up a groomsman at her wedding and am now even closer friends with her husband. In retrospect, she’s a great friend would not have been a good romantic match for me. Another I was close friends with for three years and we traveled a bunch together before we ended up in a relationship. That fizzled after a few months and we’re back to being good friends and she’s engaged to a woman (who she says, “normally hates men but loves you”). Agree it’s not going to work if a guy is always pining for you and you’re just keeping him around for the attention and affirmation, but if you genuinely both like each other a lot as people and enjoy spending time together, but there’s just not romantic chemistry, I think it can still be a real friendship.

I have enough friends.

I entered law school in my late 30's as a second career. I have strong pre-law experience (Executive of small company, 60 employees, $4m budget, MBA, etc.) and law school credentials (Top 10%, Managing Editor of Law Review). I'm willing to make less coming out of school than I did before, but want to ultimately land as in-house counsel with a decent wlb and make $200k+. I'm looking for advice on the best path to get there and how long I can expect it to take.

Today I am celebrating being able to pray again 🥹

I was diagnosed with herniated discs a year ago, and was not able to sit or bend, I even had days that I wasn’t able to walk. Anything I would do was so painful, so my movement was only limited to standing and laying down. So I had to pray standing up without the movements!
4 weeks ago I had a surgery for my back, and today I was able to perform the prayer with all the movements 😊😊

I am so happy! AlhamduliAllah for everything good or bad!
