Signs of a bad friend

Signs of a bad friend

There are many reasons that can cause a friend to turn bad. But when they do, it is often difficult for us to see this in them due to the high level of pretext and fake smiles they usually put on. A bad friend is one who always tries to use you because you have many possessions than he or she.

A bad friend is always jealous of you over things like car, your apartment, having lots of money, clothes, shoes etc. But when you confront them, they become angry.

They disrespect you and your belongings. When they borrow money, there never pay you back. Borrow your clothes, property, and never give it. At times, they return it damaged. They may also ask for a favor but can never return a favor. All these are signs of a bad friend.

Below are signs of a bad friend. The more of these signs you spot out, the more the probability your friend is no different.

Everything is about themselves

They always talk about themselves. Also, they could care a less about you, your day, how you're feeling. You may also notice that they brag a lot. Whether it is about themselves, materialistic possessions, boyfriend, getting married, or a vacation, they always find something to make them sound better than you do. Seems to always have an opinion about everything. Can't share you with other people.

When they do see you with other people, they're jealous because they want you all to themselves. Can't include you to see a movie with their boy or girlfriend. Spends lots of time with them, and when their other half is busy they want you all the time. Smiles in your face, but when around other people, make you feel small by continuously putting you down verbally.

They may also do things such as drugs and deny it. They might promise to call you back, but never do. Always keep you waiting. Always make excuses as to why they didn't call you.

Always come to you when they have problems, but when you need to vent or advice they're very short with you. So not fair when you don't mind spending two hours plus to cool them down; instead for you it's like five minutes. You're not a therapist. They may also stay mad at you when you two are in a fight. This is because they can only see their point of view.

They usually behave like informant

They are not really interested in you. You might notice that these people always need to know everything. For example, you may be talking to another friend about a secret and she/he wants to know what you're talking about.

They often try to overhear conversations between you and other people. They often lie. They may fraud their name, age etc. just to deceive you. Be careful from them. They may soon blackmail or bully you. They may eat up your things.

If they bully you never be shy to tell an elder. So try to dump this friend as soon as you find out that they are poisonous.
