Although rumors of a possible rekindled romance between David Arquette and Courteney Cox have hit the tabloids recently, Arquette insists that he has now entered the “friend zone” with his estranged wife.  Cox has been seen supporting her ex at Dancing With the Stars the last few weeks with the duo’s daughter, Coco, according to UsMagazine.com.  Arquette, who is currently dating Entertainment Tonight‘s Christina McLarty, says, “We’re pretty much in the friend zone.  Though we love each other and we love to laugh and have a great time, it’s difficult.”

How do you know when you’ve permanently entered the friend zone with someone?

Cupid’s Advice:

Sometimes, no matter how romance you once were with someone, the “friend zone” is an inevitable situation.  Here are some signs you’re in it:

1. Distance: If there’s always a good amount of physical distance between the two of you and he or she makes no effort to close that, it’s a sign that you may be destined to just be friends.

2. One of the boys: If he invites you out to watch the football game with a group of his guy friends and claps you on the back after each touchdown, you’re probably not his romantic interest.

3. Lack of moves: The thing is, if he’s really into you, he’ll eventually make a move in that direction even if he’s shy.  If it’s been weeks and you’re still not feeling a spark, you probably never will.
