[Music Playing: Kelly Clarkson “Since You’ve Been Gone”] That’s all you ever hear me say, Lip Syncing: But since you’ve been gone, I can breathe for the first time. I’m so moving on, yeah, yeah! Thanks to you, now I get what I want, since you’ve been gone. [Music] Caller: Hey, guys. I got friendzoned by this really awesome human woman who I met about a month ago. We went on approximately two dates, and then two non-date hangout things, then boom, friendzone text message. She was actually very sweet about it, and I didn’t need to cancel my life to deal with it. It’s okay. Um, since then we’ve been hanging out as friends, and it has been stellar. But now, I’m getting major mixed signals. She’s kind of flirting, kind of definitely not flirting, like she’ll go silent if I sort of flirt back… What do I do? I don’t want to pine over the possibility of a second chance, but, like, I don’t want to scare her off, even as a friend, If I go interrogating her about it. Thanks you two. I mean… [Both sighing] Can that just be our advice? Dannielle: Yeah! If I was friendzoned by Dannielle… [Mimics Sound Effect] “Z-goo” Right? Dannielle sent me a friendzone text message. Hey, I had a great time hanging out. It’s so good to have a new friend in the area. Cool, now we’re hanging out as friends. We’re hanging out as friends. Right, I’m cool with it, my life isn’t over, it’s fine, whatever. Playing basketball… Hey…Do you want to play touch ball? We’re going to sit here until Dannielle learns to flirt. Okay, pass me the basketball. Thanks babe…nope…no, that’s not how you flirt. Ohhh, you missed! At least your butt looks good in those pants! Thank you. I was noticing yours earlier. Okay, that’s weird. See, you told me my butt looked good, and then I told you your butt looked good and then you got weird. Oh, sorry, I mean I just want to be clear that I just want to be friends. That’s cool with me, but you realize that friends don’t normally compliment each other’s butts. Kristin and Dannielle do. That’s true. Kristin and Dannielle do. I mean, honestly though, all you can do is literally say, like, what’s going on? Yeah, and you just need to be direct about it. Because you’re in the right. You are correct. You’re correct. You’re doing all the right things. You sound very centered in how you feel, you would love to date her but she said no, You got over it, everything’s cool, but now she’s being flirty. She’s in the wrong, you don’t friendzone somebody, and then flirt. You certainly don’t friendzone somebody and then flirt, and then when they return flirt, get silent. Because that’s douchy. Mhmm, that’s sup-douchy. Right? Buh! [Kristin Laughing] “Sup-douchy”… Let her know exactly where you are. You know, don’t be like, “hey, listen, doodley-doo, we can totally flirt if you want.” But be like, “listen, I’m gonna like you if you want me to like you, but if you don’t want me to like you, just say it.” Right. Right! [Quietly] Sup-douch. Sup…Sup-douch! Lip Syncing: Since you’ve been gone (since you’ve been gone) I can breathe for the first time. I’m so moving on, yeah, yeah! Thanks to you (thanks to you) now I get, I get what I want! (want) I can breathe for the first time! I’m so moving on, yeah, yeah. Thanks to you (thanks to you) now I get (I get) You should know, that I get, I get what I want [Music] since you’ve been gone. [Music] Since you’ve been gone. [Music] Since you’ve been gone.
