Six Signs Someone’s a Bad Friend

Do you have someone like this in your life?  Or maybe HAD until you realized they sucked?

Here are six signs someone’s a bad friend . . .

1.  They take way more than they give.  Friendships are rarely 50/50.  But it definitely shouldn’t be 90/10.

2.  They’re BRUTALLY honest.  They should be honest and tell you the stuff you don’t want to hear.  But they should never be mean about it.  They also shouldn’t criticize every little thing.

3.  They don’t respond well to feedback.  Like if you tell them they made you angry or hurt your feelings, are they receptive to that?  Or do they dismiss it.

4.  They rarely initiate communication.  Are you always the one checking in, or reaching out to make plans?  It can also apply to staying in touch with old friends.

5.  They won’t take “no” for an answer.  Like when you don’t want to go out on a weeknight, and they keep pressuring you.  Or when you don’t want to talk about something, and they won’t stop prodding.

6.  They always gossip in a way that tears people down.  Everyone gossips on some level.  But are they mean about it?  If so, they might be talking about YOU the same way behind your back.
