    She suddenly starts calling you her BEST FRIEND without even
    Wanting to know your opinion!
    And if she calls you just to find out where you are- for no good reason or
    To ask you to meet her – then she doesnt show- & this happens more
    Than once… You better start checkin- cause something is NOT RIGHT
    - shes probably meeting your man somewhere & keeping tabs on your
    Location
    She offers to HELP YOU clean your house- ( she knows how buzy you are)
    Unless you have know her a LONG TIME – dont fall for thaf

    Always calls on you to be apart of their misery and difficult times to cry on your shoulders but never calls you to share in happy, good times and celebrations.

  • Kat says:

    I had a friend who I thought was my biggest confidante. Turns out her definition of friendship was, “My enemies are your enemies, but your enemies are still my friends.” She liked to play both sides. My definition of a true friend is “Right or wrong I stand by you.”

  • Nancy Murray says:

    Pushes you away and then eventually ignores you after your divorce. Just when you need your friends most….

  • You don’t share enough interests or passions. Sharing films, art exhibits, fashion, food, trips about town, and TV shows make the friendship roots grow, so interests shared are key.
    Also, if the friend is a Debby Downer leaving you feeling low after time spent together.
    True friends are hard to find and I personally think we need to widen our circle of friends whenever we can.

  • Trish says:

    She quickly turns any conversation into “all about her” even if you are really needing to talk about something important.

  • Nancy Cromwell says:

    She gangs up with your other friends to dump on you, when you really need a friend in the middle of your dealing with a family crisis.

  • criscocam says:

    A true friend knows your heart so there is no second guessing what your motives are. She tells the truth at all times. She is there for you, every moment of every day .

  • Carolina says:

    She flirts outrageously with your husband/boyfriend knowing how uncomfortable that makes you feel…..

  • Nancy says:

    She constantly disses your husband for no particular reason….

  • Karen Lambert says:

    You let her vent. She has to go when you need to vent.
    I am very lucky that I have a best friend, more so a soul sister. We have been so close for almost 40 years.

  • sandra may says:

    My “true” friend was incredible as she used me to help her bag my former husband (I was happy for them). After the engagement, I was history, and all she did was gossip and malign me…even to my own kids! I never did betray her confidences, and they weren’t pretty.

  • Marcia Sawyer says:

    I finally dumped a “friend” after 30+ years. 6 of the 8 on the list were things she did constantly. I’d also add 1) She frequently tells you how tired or bad you look and 2) She brings up a flaw in your accomplishment/outfit/etc in front of others immediately after someone has complimented you. I don’t know why it took me so long to get her out of my life.

  • Melanie says:

    she shares your private information with others

  • bette says:

    She only calls you when she needs you.

  • Bess Heitner says:

    She always tells you how you could be better than you are (i.e. Thinner, more organized, more thrifty) but never compliments you on your successes and even dismisses them as frivolous.
