Trying to get a bae? Sick of having to put effort into things like conversations, consent, earning trust or building a solid relationship foundation? Look no further, kiddos. This Anti-Friendzone makeup tutorial will have all the boys and girls in your yard and you won’t even have to try not to be creepy! Tip your fedoras, hunty, because with this simple beauty look your very existence means people owe you an entire relationship, marriage, sexual intercourse—just for showing up.

Seriously though, Tadalesmith’s anti-friendzone makeup tutorial totally shows us how dumb the idea of the “friendzone” is. Guess what? Some people don’t want to bone you and being nice to these people doesn’t mean they owe you anything in return. Furthermore, becoming “friends” with people to lure them into your genitals is manipulative and dishonest. It’s not something a real friend would do. If you happen to start feeling romantic about a friend and they tell you they don’t want a romantic relationship, let it go. Friendship is awesome. There is nothing wrong with being relegated to a friend, that usually means the person wants to keep you around much longer than their other relationships. If you have a problem with being someone you like’s friend, if you can’t see the value in that, then you’ve got some issues to work on.

The friendzone isn’t real, it’s just a made up place where people who believe the only goal of intimacy, of conversation, of interaction, is sex.
