- They never have time.
No matter how busy you are, you will always have time for what is important to you.
Good friends understand when someone can’t attend an invitation or doesn’t feel up to it. After all, they are there to support each other. However, the intentions to share are evident and they will find the time to do so.
Fake friends will always have an excuse and will get upset if you make any kind of complaint. They show no interest in keeping in touch.
- They love to gossip.
If they constantly talk about other people, they are likely to talk behind your back as well. And if they do, are they your real friends? Maybe not.
This type of behavior can affect groups of friends. This gossip can turn into misunderstandings and create discomfort in the group. If any of your friends engage in this behavior, be careful.
It’s one thing to vent to someone about a problem, but it’s another thing to pull people apart for personal gain.
- They act differently when they are with other people.
If that person you consider your friend treats you differently when they are with other people, watch out. This may be a sign that they are ashamed of your friendship.
If this happens, you clearly have a false friend in front of you. If they maintain your friendship, it is probably because they have a vested interest or need something from you. In this case, it is better to walk away and show the same indifference.
- They disappear when someone new comes into their lives.
It is not bad to meet someone new and have a very good empathy. That can happen to all of us. However, if your “friend” disappears, cancels plans with you and you lose contact …. it is because you were not important enough.
Some people don’t value friendship and only use others for companionship or for the plan of the moment. As soon as they find someone who can offer them something more, they jump to take advantage without caring about disrespecting and disappointing.
- As soon as there is a misunderstanding or disagreement they will stop talking to you.
The true test of a friendship comes when you and your friend disagree on something. Your attitude towards the situation will show your true colors.
A true friend will always be there. Even if there are fights or disagreements, friendship will always be more important. However false friends use and abadonate.
A friendship should be seen from the point of view that we are human beings, and as such we can change our minds and make mistakes. If your “friend” judges and filters people from his or her own personal opinions, he or she is not a good friend or a good person.
- False friends do not keep your secrets.
A good friend is our confidant, is that person with whom we feel confident enough to talk about those things that embarrass us. And why do we do it? Because we know that our secret will be well kept.
False friends do not value our trust or the importance of keeping a secret. No problem, they talk about your private things with other people.
- They are with you because they want something from you.
This is one of the most obvious signs. An interested friend is not a true friend. They are those people who approach you because it is convenient to do so. You can get them out of trouble or they see in your friendship a future opportunity.
These false friends share time with you because they want things like:
- A favor.
- Access to another social circle.
- Access to material things they don’t have.
- A job opportunity.
If you are fortunate enough to be a wealthy person, you already know that many people will approach you for the benefits they can get from having a friend like you. True friends are with you because of who you are, not because of what you have.
