Friend Zone

I am still trying to understand this...what exactly is a 'friend zone' and a 'nice guy'?
As I understand it:

Friend Zone - You like/fancy a boy/girl, but they just see you as a friend. Nothing more, ever.

Nice guy - Not a douche, kind and considerate, but the perception is that girls seem attracted to the jerks instead (Note perception, I am not saying this is a fact!)

Friend zone is when a woman doesn't want something sexual to do with a guy but is interested in talking to him anyhow
"We're going to a movie but I know nothing will happen because she friend zoned me"

Nice guy is harder for me. Maybe a guy who fails to make sexual tension or act on it.
"He hangs out with women all the time but he never gets anything going. He's a nice guy".
So you can actively "friend zone" a person?
Recently, I've heard "nice guy" described as a guy who just acts nice, or something like that

I dont know about "actively friend-zoning" a person, but you can like someone, and feel nothing for them other than friendship.
Well there's the implication, I think, that the act of using/manipulating someone is described as "friendzoning" rather than just neglecting to have/return romantic feelings.

Really? hmmm....I've never read that. Maybe my definition of friend-zoning is different.
So this is a passive social phenomena?

Yeah, maybe it's just people who expect something in return for favors, but don't say so beforehand.
