What are fake friends? Fake friends could be toxic friends, or fake people who pretend to be someone they are not, when they are with you. Fake friends signs could include: cancelling plans last minute, bringing you down instead instead of bringing you up, brag and seek a lot of attention, are judgemental, are passive aggressive and much more. If you’re looking for a checklist to know whether you have a true friend or fake friendships, then this video could be a lifesaver.
Of course, just because you might see some of these signs in yourself or your new friends, does not mean you are a fake friend. But the more signs you see, then maybe they are a fake friend or you are, and it’s time for a change.
