We all know someone who’s desperately trying to claw their way out of the friend-zone, but this guy went to a whole new level, only to be savagely placed back in the friendzone with an unintentionally savage Instagram caption.
Twitter went nuts with disappointment for Daniel, who appeared to be the ‘nice guy’ who she just didn’t see in that way.
The girl who placed him so clearly in the friend-zone is called Alex. After Daniel took her for a day of Top Golf, dinner, flowers, ice cream and horse-riding, she thanked him in a post… I’ve never seen someone fit the word ‘friend’ into two sentences as many times in my life.
The extremely clear caption reads:
From Top Golf, to dinner, flowers, ice cream and Horseback riding, you out-did yourself on this friend date Daniel! You wanted to set a standard for how I should be treated and you sure set a high one. I thank God so much that He put an amazing friend like you in my life. Thank you for making me feel like a true princess! #stillsingletho.
People were feeling his pain…
Bruh I'm hurt for the kid

This person thought the #stillsingletho hashtag was like Saltbae sprinkling that salt…

Hey Daniel, there’s still hope. After all, Ross did it.
To be fair to Daniel, he wanted to be in the friend zone, and released a statement defending Alex.
This post is to clear up my whole “friend” date. First off, I am the one who set these boundaries to begin with. I am also the one who made up the hashtag as a joke. Leading up to the day, Alex had shared with me her testimony, and because of her past relationships her self worth had diminished.
She had never been treated like a lady and I wanted to show her what it was like. So please, stop the harassment. This is the exact opposite of what I wanted to happen. The comments and messages she has been receiving have been nothing but hate. She does not deserve that.
So he was just doing a good deed and it was misconstrued.
Or is he defensive because he’s madly in love with Alex and doesn’t want her to know?
We’ll never know but we wish Daniel all the best with his love life. Whoever takes him out of the dreaded zone is in for a treat by the sounds of it.
