What's the Difference Between a Fake Friend and a True One

Finding a True Friend

A true friend is very difficult to find. Everybody can say that a person is their friend, but how can you really tell if a person is true or fake? In this article, I'm going to talk about fake friends, true friends, and the difference between both of them.

How to Spot a Fake Friend

1. Fake Friends Don't Make an Effort

Fake friends always expect someone to come visit, call, and see them, but they don't want to give the same effort. They think it's okay to not put effort into the relationship, which can be draining for the other person.

Whenever a person stops seeing or calling a fake friend, the fakes have the nerve to get mad and ask questions like, "Why aren't they calling and visiting me!"

Fake friends are never there when you need them the most. They always have themselves and other objectives on their minds and don't put any type of effort to see if you are okay, or to help you if you're down.

2. Fake Friends Are Negative

When you're with other people, fake friends say things like, "This is my friend! I really like him or her! This is my homeboy or homegirl! That's my boy, or that's my girl!" But their actions reveal something else: that they don't really want to be your friend.

They put you down in front of other people and laugh and talk about you in your face. This is a sign that these are fake friends. They also always have a negative, judgmental attitude. If you tell them about your dreams that you want to accomplish, they'll laugh and criticize you to your face saying, "You can't do that! That's impossible!" They're always trying to talk you out of their dreams.

Then, if the dream becomes reality, they'll be there again saying, "That's my boy! That's my friend! He did it! He's talented!" even though they didn't support you at all.

3. Fake Friends Don't Keep Secrets

This is one trait about fake friends I really can't stand. Fake friends are always telling everyone other people's business, but they don't want anyone to know their business. They are always going around and gossiping about other people's secrets!

Even if you make a fake friend promise they won't tell a soul about your secret, as soon as they leave your presence they're telling everyone! Then you get people coming up to you and saying, "I heard this about you. Is it true!? That's what I heard about you. Did that happen to you!? Do you have this? Are you this?"

Fake friends love telling other people about your secrets. They can't keep promises.

4. Fake Friends Don't Keep Their Word

Fake friends always leave people in the dark. They don't call to say that plans have changed, or that something's happened. This happens over and over again with fake friends.

A lot of them believe that even though they don't keep their word to other people, other people won't do the same for them. Then, when someone blows them off, they want to get mad about it! But I think that one gets what he or she deserves!

How to Deal with Fake Friends

I wanted to say this about fake friends, that they'll tell other people about your secrets and personal things. You let them in on who you are, and they abused being part of your inner-circle.

Try to forgive them if they want another chance, but be careful. Most likely, they will do it again. Now let's talk about true friends.

How to Spot a True Friend

1. A True Friend Can Be Trusted

A true friend won't tell your secrets and personal business to other people. They keep their promises, secrets, and personal information safe!

A true friend never judges you when you tell them something deep about yourself. They will always listen to what you have to say! The bond with a true friend is so strong that you don't abuse each other's trust.

2. A True Friend is There for You

A true friend is always there whenever you need them the most, especially during rough times. They always make the effort to call you and want to see if you are okay.

A true friend always shows that he or she cares about you and will sacrifice their own comfort for you.

3. A True Friend Wants to Help You

A true friend always wants to be a blessing in your life. They don't look to give you a hard time (unless they're teasing, but it's always done in good faith.) True friends are always looking for ways to bless you, just like you're doing for them.

Real friends are excited to see you and you guys enjoy hanging out together. True friends aren't a burden to each other.

4. A True Friend Believes in You

A true friend always believes in your dreams and talents and is excited when something good happens in your life. They want you to be successful and for the best to happen in your life, not the worst! They will always lift you up, not bring you down!

I think I have a fake friend she is really bitchy and always bitches about my best friend and criticises her and talks about her behind her back to me. There was an argument today and my best friend started crying and I realised that we don't need that other friend in our lives. But I'm a sucker for forgiving people easily and I don't like falling out even if she is a fake friend. I don't really know what to do. Obviously I'm gonna stick up for my best friend but I hate falling out so I'm pretty confused. I'd like it if you replied to this with advice. Thanks.

It’s unbelievable how fortunate I feel after finding your website. For the past 1 year, I have been so depressed after losing my husband to another woman. My money situation worsened so much that I thought I’d have to file for bankruptcy. I had a huge amount of debt and I didn’t know what to do. Out of complete and total desperation, I contacted many of those so-called individuals who promised powerful magic, witchcraft or black magic. None of them worked and none were as wonderful, affectionate and warm as Priest Grace has been. He is definitely different from the others and I felt immediate hope and strength from hearing about the promises he had to offer. He carries an air of purity and divine strength that is as pure as fresh snow on the ground. I requested Kofi’s most powerful spells and I was relieved right away that I had someone to solve my problems for me. His spells worked wonders and I am now back with my husband and my money troubles resolved itself after winning the lottery. Priest Grace I have no idea what I would have done without you being there to help me out. Here is his email:gracerelationshipspell@gmail.com

All my so called friends were always insulting me and trying to bring me down. I never had a true friend or a real friend. I always was a good friend and never insulted anyone. I would be there for them whenever they needed me. I am so sad that I was treated badly and put up with it. It will never happen again.

Hello, I had a friend that wanted me to stay with her until her mother and child return from summer vacation. My trip was already plan for the next month, she wants me to rearrange my schedule for her needs and when I called her bluff nis everything is a problem she don't need because her family coming in now she don't need me cause the dog is going to a friends house. Now all of sudden she wants me to pay her rent while she is gone for the two weeks we are supposed to be in her house. This all came about because I couldn't stay for the time frame she needed me.

A fake friend is someone who is only there when he or she wants something from you without giving anything in return. I had a friend in grade school and high school. I made the mistake of joining her church because when I was in the confirmation class and later joined, all our friendship seemed to be about was her damn church. She figured that as long as she got me to go to her church, she could abandon me in more significant ways. I learned the hard way that where church is concerned, you pretty much do not have any REAL friends in church. So, it is clear that church was a filler so that she did not have to make any real effort.

A real friend should compliment your good points and not find fault with every "bad" point. My friend was always criticizing me about my weight when she was really no better than I was. A real and true friend should accept you for who you are and not try to convert you for her interests or conveniences. Sure, everyone has differences from time to time, but sometimes those differences need to be set aside to save the friendship from unnecessary aggravation and hardship.

Thank you...I had an argument recently coz my 'friend' decides to call me 'two faced' and I should come clean. she told this other person that I spoke behind her back which I did but my friend did it more. It wasn't only her but it was two other girls too, who I called 'sisters'. I always did and my 'best friend' decides to call me that. UNBELIEVABLE!!!! She's a fake and she doesn't even hang out with me who she calls a 'best friend'. Help?!

I had to write back and say what an amazing experience I had with dodogodssolution@yahoo.com. l am tina. I was desperate for a kind and gentle man to enter my life when I ran into your email doing some surfing. I had a phone consultation with Dr dodogods and I found him to be so helpful, gentle and reassuring. Within a couple of weeks, I met a guy in a dance club who really swept me off my feet. I’ve been with him for several months now and we seem to be the perfect couple. All it took was one visit to Dr dodogods and my life is as good as it has ever been. I need to thank Dr.dodogods for caring about me enough to send me such a wonderful and powerful spell.thanks post by david

She always called me names and bring me down. When I talk to her she just keeps talking to her other friend. I have come to relize true and fake friends. My true friends came up to me and hugged me and asked me if I was ok. They said If I ever needed someone to talk to come to them. But my so called friend is lying about her boyfriend and saying that hes cuz with andy sixx and knows all of the black veil brides band and celbs. Thats such a fake lie. Im 13 and I'm emo/scene so I were my hair up once and kinda curly straght and wered preppy stuff,she said she was only my friend if im emo and she coulden't handel what I had to say or talk to her.

Pb200, no this person doesn't fall in the category of a real friend at all! This person qualifies in the category of an aquantanice! It's proven because this person's actions doesn't show no interest in developing a friendship with you! I say pursue other folks who might be intersted in wanting to start a true friendship!

Hey Zack! I know that it's rough finding out folks who are your best friends and they turn out to be fakes! To me, I was hurt emotionally after so many cases, but it was a blessing because their true colors got revealed! and it taught me the next time I run into a person who wants to be my friend, it doesn't take as long to see!don't hate your life The thing

for you! The thing that I can say that focus your mind on a true friend in life, and what you want that true friend to be like! I do this, even though it's not happened, but I have felt so much better!

jess 4 years ago

look i love what you're trying to say.... it is something that most people struggle with i am one who has been taken advantage of several times... but i think you're thinking rainbows too much... a true friend yes has some of those qualities but i disagree with some of your points.... a true friend will tell you the truth no matter what... they wont make you feel rainbow and sunshines all the time and make you feel great 247... i've had friends like that who ended up just being someone who was not true and hurt me.... yes friends dont spread gossip about you... yes a true friend is always there when you need them...yes a true friend wants to be a blessing in your life... but most of all they want to be family... sometimes we have to understand that people make mistakes... a true friend will above anything else will admit they were wrong when they hurt you and say they love you .... i think when they do it twice then they aren't but one who is willing to put their pride aside is one worth keeping...

Not sure if were to go with this several things have happened over the years and lately she has made it a point not too include me in a few social events. or respond whenever I text too see if she would like too do something.

Recent events brings me to this article.

I was going to graduate along with my friends,however,I failed an important module which cannot be pushed forward to make me graduate on time,thus,I have to graduate 1 semester after my friends.

My friends wished me the best and says they will be visit me when they are free during my semester.

Well,what happened was that,there was no visits,no calls or sms.Not even on graduation day in which the ceremony is held just 3 blocks away from my school.

So much for their flamboyant words,just plain disappointment with the friends and classmates of a few years.

Hey Danny,

I am sorry that I couldn't get with you on this comment! I really passionate about friendship myself! To answer your question, if you find yourself in a situation where he continues to lie on you, it's a great time to cut off that friendship. If he continues to lie in order to dodge you, it's an great indication that he doesn't want you at all, or don't want a close friendship! I really think that it's time to close that friendship, and find another friend who can treat you right and be more honest in the relationship! Also come visit my blog at self-help enrichment at http://enlightened32.blogspot.com/. I have a ton of information that can help you in aspects of relationship! Let's stay in contact there. Contact me on my blog! Thanks again for asking your question for concern!

@ Amanda Thanks for comment so much

Danny 5 years ago

I'm still not sure if my friend is fake or not. When i ask him to hang out he says he's always busy.He might be exited for something, for example watching a movie with his friends, but when he finds out i'm joining, he makes up lame excsuses like, "i don't like movies",or "this game represents hurt", or as usual, "i just remembered i have something to do". He will avoid anything that regards me. Also i think he talks bad behind my back. And when he hits me, he makes it look an accident when it really is not. Also i found out he was out with friends, and didn't bother to tell me anything. He even lied saying that he didn't. Also i don't trust him, his eyes have A sneaky look and they're untrustworthy. I also have the feeling that he tells my enemies stuff about me when he leaves after i give him a piece of information.That's the reason everything i tell him about me is a lie! What should i do?

Wow I loved this article. I'm tired of being taken for granted, being the listening ear, going out of way to drive to meet someone, and never getting the same in return. I'm so fed up with it all, now I know that true friendship is a rare but beautiful blessing. I can't say I've ever received it on a deep level, and I'm trying my best to be a true friend too. It's hard though when people who are your so called friends act so shady. I'm ready to cut them out of my life or minimize the contact, I think this can apply to family members as well.

dreamer32 5 years ago from Mississippi Author

Hey B, I can really feel you on this one because I have been through the same thing! Fake friends can act that way towards people, which they have any remorses for any people at all! Most of them don't even give a care at all! When a person does that, it's time to move on! I just got out of a previous friendship that drained the mess out of me!

@ And cli, I feel the same way about the previous friendship, once a person mess up, they will get forgiveness, but they will earn it from the sweat of their brow! Sometimes when most of us cut of friendship like that, it will lift a burden off of you!

@ Clio, you are so welcome!

This was very well written! None of us are perfect so if your friend does change after you talk to them about it then FORGIVE but if they don't change or they're the type of friends you can't talk to about this kind of thing to cause their hostile or w.e then FORGET them.


anonymous 5 years ago

well i have had a problem now with a friend i have and this has cleared it up for me completely... lets just say she'll be an aquiantance from now on... she doesn't gossip or anything but never answers my texts. She'll answer my phone calls but will never really talk. there was a time where i would be like, its almost 6pm she'll call after she gets out of work, and the phone would ring... after some arguments because she has changed on me on a 180 degree level, we have become distant and there are things she lies to me about because i can see and feel it... i am only 25 and i don't need someone like that in my life... thanx for making it so clear, now i know she is out of my personal life for good :)

I really enjoyed this post cause I am going through a difficult situation right now dealing with my best friend. I truly care for her and make the effort to call and text her to check on her but she never puts for the same effort in return. And I just feel like our friendship is falling apart and at times I blame myself for the problems that we have in our friendship.

Thanks emari and whoah! I can relate to these matters also! In today's world it's sort of difficult to find a true friend, but they are still out there! keep believing and be focused !

This helped a lot because just a few minutes ago a so called friend of mine called me a bitch just because i wouldn't give her and some other girl the answers to a school worksheet she also told other people around her that i wouldn't share my answers. The only reason why I didn't want to share is because the girl that wanted the answers always cheats and that my 'friend' is so stupid and calls me a bitch. x-x yeah it sucks. If there's any response to this, i'd really like it because now I am done talking to her but still don't know what I should do.

Your hub is on point.

Once you can understand and get a real feel on your circle of friends,it'll probably grow smaller.

But you'll have peace of mind and clarity once all is said and done.

Thanks for sharing.

Stay Blessed

Hey Dreamer, on top of me, odd how fitting the name is, do you think? Wish I could comment but my last year of school was at the age of 14 for good. Regardless, even if not, I tend to get engrossed in a topic and well inspiring Hub like this one, so be a friend and surely not allow None to find me lol

2 things okay 3 maybe more but for now 1&2 = anyone who is a dreamer and who is obviously a true friend, not just someone who writes about them, well let's say, I'm sold, a hubber I am pleased to follow and support, and clearly can learn much from

And 3 it's the hub, can't help it-thumbs up and about to share it

thank you

None other than Kimberly (sorry had to be done)[and a nasty vampire named prey] (last year lyricsingray)

Have a great weekend

Thanks! The stuff is absolutely terrific for someone who has noticed that something is wrong but couldn't find the reason because of time spent together.. enlightening.

Thanks Lord Venjix,

That's one thing that I don't play about is friendships! Every person can be an acquantance, but my belief not ever person qualifies under the catagory of the true friends! Thanks again. Hope to hear from you!

Thanks hey wife! I have always had a strong belief and fondation on friendships! Some people don't think about what the true meaning of friendship is! Most of them just look over that word!


LordVenjix 6 years ago

Yeah, I have to agree, very good. Keep up the great work, I'll memorize everything and fight back to find the true meaning of "Friends". =)

I take friendships seriously because most people take friendships for granted in which I don't what is the reason for that cause
