Friends can make life so much better, right? But not all people are the right kinds of friends, that’s why you need to know how to spot a ғᴀᴋᴇ nice person.
Have you ever had friends who go out of their way to help you? Is unnecessarily sweet to you but you caught him/her back bitching about you to other people? All you wanted them was to be genuine and straightforward with you but you end up deceived by them.
Social media has blindfolded us to the point of us being unable to distinguish between a ғᴀᴋᴇ and a true friend. It’s time to spot your ‘frenemies’ and let them go.
5 Signs below will help you figure out if someone is ғᴀᴋᴇ
1 Often Gossips About Others
This is a common sign that someone is ғᴀᴋᴇ. Why? Because a specific group of ғᴀᴋᴇ people invents the gossips themselves while they speak, just to talk about someone and say something bad.
Yes, the truth is that gossiping is not good and there is no benefit from it. And when it comes to gossiping one thing is certain it says more about the person who speaks, then about the subject of the gossip.
2. ғᴀᴋᴇ Friend Will Make You Choose Them Over Other Friends
ғᴀᴋᴇ friends what to manipulate you, they want you only for themselves. They want you to be available to them all the time, in a way they see you as their servant.
And after a while, they might ask you to cancel on another friend to be with them and eventually they will be your only friend. This ғᴀᴋᴇ friend will cost you all your real ones.
3. A ғᴀᴋᴇ Friend Will Lean on You For Emotional Support
When they need you and have no one else to call, one thing is certain they will call you. They do this since they are sure you cannot say no to them. ғᴀᴋᴇ friends waste your time in order to fill up theirs.
They don’t care about you, they only want to spend their time and feel good about themselves. They never ask how you are with a legitimate concern. It is all about them.
4. ғᴀᴋᴇ Friend Is an Opportunist
This is a classic sign of a ғᴀᴋᴇ person. Just think about it. Do you have a friend that makes plans with you and cancels at the last moment? Do they do it often? Well, this is someone who doesn’t value you or your time.
Probably this person canceled on you since they have other things planned and the same time, and they canceled you to use their best opportunity.
5. A ғᴀᴋᴇ Friend Compliments and Mocks You at the Same Time
ғᴀᴋᴇ people usually wrap a jock and a compliment. They want to mock you but still keep you close. They want you around as long as they can use you, but they still think bad about you.
Do you recognize some friend in the signs above? Does someone acts this way towards you? Then it is time to get rid of them. Why? Because life is beautiful and you need to spend it well with positive and good people.
Find people who will help you evolve and grow, people that will help you be the best version of yourself.
