So, imagine the following situation: you are on your very first day at college and you meet a friend that seems nice. One thing leads to another, you become roommates and for a while, you are enjoying talking for hours late at night. And then, suddenly, you realize that your friend is fake?
He was talking about your secrets to other people and you thought you can trust him. Unfortunately, we all have people in our lives for whom we think they are nice, but in reality, it appears that these people are mean and they don’t deserve our attention. They only pretended to be nice this whole time. It turns out they are fake.
So, how can you tell the difference between good and bad? This list will help you spot the differences:
1. THEY ARE WILLING TO ACCEPT THE “CRAZY” YOU
Do you have some weird moves when you are dancing, or perhaps you are too loud in public? The truth is that we all possess some kinds of traits that may seem odd. But a true friend won’t mind your “weirdness”, they will simply accept you the way you are.
2. EVEN IF THEY ARE QUITE BUSY, THEY WILL ALWAYS FIND TIME FOR YOU
Real friends will definitely give you a vital place in their life, no matter how busy they are. Even after a long day, somehow they will find the time to go out with you for a drink or two.
3. THEY ALWAYS FIND A WAY TO FORGIVE AND TRULY FORGET.
We are all humans and we are known for making mistakes. But the truth is that a good friend will always find a way to forgive you. He will find understanding for the situation and he will give you all the time in the world to explain yourself. A fake friend will probably just find a way to bring up your faults which will make him feel like he is better than you.
4. THEY WILL FIND A WAY TO STAY IN CONTACT
Every long-distance friendship can be very complicated. But a true friend will always have the time to call you, text you, or just send you some really weird snapshot from time to time.
5. THEY WILL APPRECIATE YOUR CHOICES
Of course, sometimes they may criticize your choices, but only in a productive way. Nonetheless – they will always support your ambitions and goals in your life.
So, while you are trying to embrace your nice friends, this list can help you to spot easier the fake ones:
1. THEY WANT TO BE YOUR TOP PRIORITY
It is true. These are the people who are expecting you to make them feel like they are the most important people in your life. Of course, this doesn’t go both ways.
2. THEY ENJOY GOSSIPING
These people will talk about others all the time. About others people secrets and their traits. But just take a moment to think this through what if they are doing the same to you as well?
3. EVEN IF THERE IS NO REASON FOR IT, THEY ARE BEING SARCASTIC
These kinds of people will often use sarcasm because that’s their favorite way of insulting.
4. THEY ARE COMPETITIVE ALL THE TIME
They can see competition in everything. This is because they want to think that they are the best and to make it clear that you can’t compete with them. It doesn’t matter if it’s about academic scores, new job promotion or only new clothes. They will always find a way.
