Ten Things Fake Best Friends Do


The Top Ten

1 They leak your secrets

True, in 5th grade during Valentine's Day, I had my first kiss and this 1 idiot took a picture of it and sent it to my mom and I got my ass whooped so that's why I never trust a snitch. - AlphaQ

Told the girl who I thought was my best friend about my crush, then 5 minutes later everyone finds out. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

This right here is why I never tell anyone my personal business. - Minecraftcrazy530

Trust me I would know... - frankjackson

2 They talk behind your back with your enemies
3 They leave you alone when you are in need
4 They just don't listen

I think This one is the worst you friends are your pillars, your rocks your meant to support one another! They could at least try so they are in your favour.

5 They feel jealous of your achievements

This and almost every item here is my ex best friend IRL In a nutshell - MLPFan

6 They never agree with you
7 They seem to be with you for their own benefits

This is something that will definitely get on your nerves. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

My first IRL ex bestfriend is jealous of me at everything, tries to badmouth me in my back, took control of a group I made without my consent, tried to hack my phone so she can take selfies of herself with it, called me autistic, made me leave the group I made so she can take over it and always try to make me feel bad of myself (I made a rant post about her in this list)
My second IRL ex bestfriend doesn't care about me, only hangs out with me when her friend (my first ex bestfriend, coincidentally, both of my ex bestfriends) Isn't around, and like my other ex IRL BFF, She's also only there for me when she's confused with a question and needs help. - MLPFan

8 They go out with your ex

My friend is going out with my ex

Now that is nasty! - frankjackson

Especially for guys you can't do that.

9 They are quick at turning you down

Once I had this Spanish class and when I was there I made a friend. I don't remember much about him though. But on the last day on the class we played some games. I think the game was bingo. And if you won the game then you got a prize. So I didn't win one time and then I took another bingo card and won a calculator. But my friend didn't win anything. Then a couple days later I got an email from him. He said that he wasn't going to be my friend anymore because I cheated at the bingo game. I didn't even cheat but he thought I did! And all I won was a dumb calculator anyway! What a jerk! I'm glad that I'm not his friend anymore. - SammySpore

10 You rarely hang out and have fun

They ALWAYS have plans. At least that's what they say. They just use that as an excuse not to hang out.

The Newcomers

? They snitch on you

The Contenders

11 They replace you with someone else without saying anything

This happened with me and my friends... I hope they're having fun while it lasts 😒 - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

12 They humiliate you in front of people

I have friends that do this and it's so annoying! I might drop them though.

That person is a jerk

My fake best friend would mock me with false stories about me to everyone. She said that I'm in an engagement with a VOCALOID, which is already obviously fake, told everyone I have 15 husbands(I meant 15 anime crushes. I know It sounds weird, but she's worse because she told me that she's married to an anime guy who's way older than her and would draw pictures of her and the anime guy's "wedding", which is way creepier
Besides I was joking with the 15 husband thing), and called me autistic just because I didn't let her use my phone for her own benegits like taking selfies of herself, act that she owns it and etc. I'm not a stingy person, I'm just the kind of person who doesn't like people touching my items and acting as if they own it. - MLPFan

13 They stab you in the back
14 They expect you to drop everything you're doing just so you can cater their needs

Now this is something that will cause a lot of rage. - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

15 They would spread lies about you to others to make you lose all your friends

The fake friend of mine has always been like this. She would tell people lies about me so she can take everyone away from me. I honestly hate her with a burning passion - MLPFan

16 They make you feel guilty just for not being with them

There is this fake friend who tries to sulk around me when I don't hang out with him. He only does it when no one is around him. - Scerve

Yes this happened to me. I ditched her afterwards...😏

My ex best friend ALWAYS try to make me feel guilty and she tried to make me look like a bad person and a slut for a lot of times - MLPFan

17 They make promises they never keep
18 They are friends with you alone, but not friends with you when someone else is nearby

You can be friends when you're alone, but not when others are around? That's bull crap!

When she’s with me she actually talks to me but when the other girls come by she acts like I’m a nobody and she is mean to me

19 They lie to you
20 They fake laugh at your jokes

Maybe they just have a silent laugh so they fake it so they could breathe

The question then is how do you know - frankjackson

I mean if you had common sense it would be pretty easy to figure out if somebody is faking or not. - Navylexi

21 They steal your friends
22 They drive a wedge between you and your real friends
23 They only speak to you if you have food
24 They make you eat stuff you don't want to
25 They flirt with your crush/partner
26 They only want to be around you when it benefits them

My brother's "friends" used to do this. When they were mad or he did something they didn't like, they treated him like crap and wanted nothing to do with him. But as soon as they needed/wanted a favor from him, then they wanted to talk. Thankfully, he doesn't talk to them anymore.

27 They look happier with others
28 They constantly act affectionately towards you
29 Threaten to kill you

Wow that's harsh


Umm I don’t think that someone that’s a supposed best friend would threaten to kill you... - Camaro6

30 They make everything about them
31 They have jealousy issues
