Unrequited love sucks. But please, men, stop using the term "friendzone" when a woman you like doesn't return your feelings. It's dismissive, entitled, gross, and reeks of "nice guy syndrome" ( see here in comic form). Apologies if this is covered at all later in the interview, it bothered me enough that I had to turn it off.

THANK YOU! I almost turned it off, I felt the same way. It would have bothered me less if it was acknowledged that it was a harmful attitude, but it never really was.
