- It’s all about take and take
Your friendship is a one-sided affair. One party always finds devious means to take things from the other to satisfy their own needs. They constantly demand things knowing perfectly that you can’t say NO.
Just try saying 'No' to them once, and you'll be haunted by them for the rest of your life! So, it's better to stay away from such toxic people.
- They are never there when you need them
Fake friends are always out of reach when you need them urgently. It seems they magically disappear whenever you need them just to cry on their shoulders or seek their advice.
- They are manipulative
They know the right time to push the emotional blackmail button. They are always complaining, and never see the brighter side of any situation. They are never grateful to you when you sacrifice certain things in your life to accommodate them.
- They are not trustworthy
Fake friends always spill your secrets and don't respect your privacy, which you trusted them the most with.
- Fake friends lie
Many times, fake friends do not feel good about who they are so they lie about their accomplishments, their grades, their clothes, their possessions – anything to make themselves look better.
