1

The “It’s All about Me” Friend

Do you have a friend like this? Everything is all about her. To a person like this, friendship doesn’t mean giving each other mutual support and compassion. They want you to be there for them but they lack the ability to return that favor. You’ll often feel the scale is tipped toward her in a friendship like this.

***

Whenever you have news to share, big or small, it somehow flips back to relate to her life experiences. The conversation quickly turns into a monologue about what's happening in her world. Planning an outing? She cancels or changes plans at the last minute without considering your feelings. And when she does show up, it's late – with a bunch of excuses and a story that places her at the center of attention. You leave interactions feeling drained, your own needs consistently left unaddressed. This is not the reciprocal relationship that forms the foundation of a true friendship.

2

The “I’m Better than You” Friend

No one needs a friend who thinks they’re better than you are. Of course, this friend would never say this outright but they imply it in many ways. They may think they’re better because they dress better than you do, make better grades, see themselves as morally superior or other reasons. It’s not wrong if they have a little more than you do in some area; it’s wrong when they give you this attitude. You don’t need a friend like that.

3

The “Can’t Be Happy for You” Friend

Then there’s the friend who can’t be happy for you. They usually battle an inner jealousy when something good happens to you. They don’t have the maturity to be happy when things are going your way. They want to tell you how hard their own life is when something good happens. You can identify this friend by how they always rain on your parade.

4

The “I Want to Be Your Only Friend” Friend

Can you say clingy? This friend only wants you and they want you to only want them. They lack emotional maturity. They get angry when you do things with other people and do their very best to tag along any chance they can. They’re constantly threatened by your other friendships.

5

The “Negative Nelly” Friend

We can all get down or feel pessimistic at times and that’s normal. We’re only human. But the “Negative Nelly” friend is always this way. You feel like you’re always cheering her up. Being around her is draining out your own happiness slowly and surely.

***

Negativity can be like a contagion, and when you're around someone who can’t find the silver lining in any situation, it affects your own mindset. You start questioning your achievements and joys because they're always met with a pessimistic comment or a dismissive attitude. It's vital for your well-being to surround yourself with positive influences. If talking to this friend about their outlook doesn't help, it may be time to consider putting some distance between you and the constant cloud of gloom they bring into your life.

6

The “Imitate Everything about You” Friend

This friend falls on the strange end of the spectrum. They’re very insecure in themselves and so they fall into the habit imitating everything about you. They don’t have enough confidence in their own identity to be their own person. If you suddenly get into ankle boots then she’s got to have a pair. Whoever your favorite author is, that becomes her favorite author. It’s this way with everything in your life and it’s completely annoying!

7

The “You Must Keep up” Friend

Then there’s the friend who wants you to keep up. She expects you to wear certain brands, go certain places and meet other expectations. She’s in a certain crowd and to be her friend, you’ve got to earn your place there. This friend isn’t one it’s fun to be friends with and it’s questionable if she’s truly even a friend. True friends love regardless of the circumstances.

The question to ask in any of these situations is if the friend offers you anything or they’re just a drain on your life. It’s up to you to decide what’s best for your life. Do you have any friends that fit into one of these categories?

Like everyone but to call everyone your BEST FRIEND is just annoying because you don't know where you stand and you don't know if you are actually their best friend or not. Like seriously people need to decide who is and isn't their best friend. It will

And she started talking like me too! So irritating

Very true about all of these !

I had a #4 friend too. She's too demanding and jelly. :(

I think you just need to call your friends out in a nice way when these really ugly traits pop up. If they don't like it they will move on to their next victim

@Silpa your so right !

Or the overly sensitive friend! Who just disappears and ghosts you and you don't know what's the problem?

Well, they say a friend is someone who knows your faults and loves you in spite of them. Guess all our friends have something that irritates us? Just don't expect friends to be perfect and accept them for what they are.

Lmfao so pretty much get rid of all of your friends... 😒I used to have so many friends, now I struggle daily, mopping around, feeling like nobody wants me just because I saw how many negative friends I had and hated it, so I changed it and now sadly I just have a few friends and they are still not that great. And I can't get rid of them too cuz then I'd have no one. Yeah sure maybe we don't need these kinds of "friends" in our lives but.. Barely any people are normal these days. I've never found a friend like...me. One that isn't any of those things listed above. I'm just normal.. Normal from my perspective. One that listens, yet likes to express her self and talk when I need to. One that likes to sit in and watch a movie and another day do something crazy and adventurous. One that is nice but throws in jokes like "hey loser or hey bitch😜" . One that will always be there for u and have ur back.. There aren't many people like that. At least not anyone that I have met yet. And even "judging" u could say.. U could see by the way people act. U can see who is mean is is clingy etc etc. it's hard to find good friends these days. And if u get rid of all the people listed above. You'll have no one

Oh yes, and they're out of my life ;-)
