How You Know Someone Wants to Be Your Friend

Updated on March 7, 2014

Some friends don’t want to hang all the time. Some friends need time for themselves. And some friends don’t know what the hell they want at all. You usually help with this.

But still, they are your friends. And we in life, don’t want to waste our time on someone who doesn’t want one.

I have here for all who’s curious, the most crucial signs that someone doesn’t want to be your friend.


Who Are You?

You haven’t spoken to this person in a year. They've forgotten you number. You have to remind them what your number is. You call them and they never answer the phone. You text them and they don’t text you back for days.

On top of this, they don’t know much of anything about you. Meaning, they haven’t been paying attention to much of anything you've said about yourself. This is someone who does not want to be your friend.


I Don’t Really Want To Be Bothered With You Like That

They don’t want to hear about any of your problems, avoiding you when you’re going through something. They run when you need something, or treat you like you should give to get.

And they avoid you altogether when something terrible happens, they really don’t want to be a support system.

A friend or someone who wants to be your friend tries to help you. They will stay with you for as long as you need them either physically or even over the damn phone. This is someone who wants to be your friend.



In typical friendships, everyone meets up to hang even just to talk or gossip, or give advice. This could be at lunch or while exercising together or whatever.

Friends chat, hang just to hang, see each other because they care about one another. And they're also no holds barred talks, typically about everything. And it should feel to you, as common as night and day.

If they make no time to hang with you, nor like hanging when you offer, they do not want to be your friend.

Last Note

Some people don’t know how to be a friend or have a friend. Some people don’t know how to keep a friend. They can’t realize a good friend and that's just sad.

There's nothing you can do about it nor is there anything you should do about it. If they don't want to be your friend, they just don't. Just move on to more experiences that are definite in life, as there are always new friends to be made.

There’s nothing more valuable in friendship than the friend themselves. This is a universal gift that everyone can find anywhere.

      Hi Natalie,

      Thanks for reading, that's an interesting question. I haven't written that micro-article yet. I might in time, if someone doesn't beat me to it. TFR.
