After taking a female friend on what sounds like a pretty awesome date, one guy got confirmation that she just sees him as a friend in the form of a post-date Instagram.

Here's the close-up:


She wrote:


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

Ugh, nooooo! Poor Daniel. The internet was quick to offer their condolences.


I normally despise the term "friend zone" but, my God. He bought her flowers and took her horseback riding and got an Instagram pic calling it a friend date and using the hashtag, "#stillsingletho." Obviously it's TOTALLY fine that she doesn't have romantic feelings for him and just wants to be friends, but you gotta tell the guy that! (In person, not via Instagram.)

Daniel, you need a hug?
