Fake People

  • Your friend seems to love talking to you, of course, but they spend most of the conversation badmouthing other people.
  • They don’t talk about ideas, they talk about people. 
  • They aren’t honest with their feelings, which is why you don’t understand them. 
  • Your story isn’t that bad.
  • They encourage you to be happy and positive, but they don’t apply this to their own life. 
  • They make inopportune comments like “mine was better,” “I’ve already done that,” “yeah, but that’s happened to me, too,” “it’s not that bad….”
  • They put excessive emphasis on social relationships. They always want to help the whole world, but when they do it, they feel overwhelmed. They don’t know how to say no, and when it is something serious, they seem to hesitate.
  • They tell you that you have many virtues when you are feeling low, they love being around you… but they don’t seem enthusiastic about your accomplishments. They say demotivating things like “that always turns out badly” or “be realistic.” They are with you in bad times, but they don’t seem to enjoy when you are experiencing good times.
  • They have no sense of humor, or at least not yours. 
  • They ask you things about other friends and your family
  • They tell the same stories over and over. As if they had lost all notion of whom they had already told.
  • With many people, you see them saying, “This is a very sensitive subject, but don’t say anything, okay?” Of course, this isn’t a model for good behavior before others. If they weren’t telling, they wouldn’t have to ask for others to keep it secret.
  • They say they’re strong and they’ve been through a lot, but that shouldn’t be a reason to underplay your worries, especially when you have listened to them in every imaginable situation, no matter how minor it may have seemed to you.




If you have a friend who displays some of these characteristics, it might be time for a talk with them. And sometimes, the only solution to a toxic friend is simply to see less of them and let the friendship fade.
