It’s easy for a “fake” person to pull the wool over our eyes. One moment they’re our best friends, and the next, they’re nowhere to be found. This can leave us feeling hurt and vulnerable, especially if we really grew to care about them. The truth is, these people are selfish and place no value in real friendships or relationships. Next time, pay attention to these subtle clues that reveal the true colors of a phony:
They’re all about material things
This person might shower you with gifts (and they usually make sure you know that). But will they ever help you out when you really need it? It seems like they’d be quicker to buy you new jewelry instead of talking you through a tough time in your life.
They always “want” to be there
A caring person shows up, even if it isn’t convenient for them. A fake will tell you a million times that they want to take you to dinner or meet your family, but they never actually follow through.
Your life revolves around their schedule
If you find yourself tailoring your life around theirs, then something’s up. They’ll show up when there’s something in it for them. You come to realize you can’t really count on them for anything.
Their status matters to them
A fake cares about labels. They want to know that they’re your best friend or the best boyfriend you’ve ever had. They’re all about show, which has no real substance.
