The type of friends you don’t need in your life

accreditation

It’s about time you re-evaluate the type of friends you should distance yourself from.

friends to let go

The one who’s always busy

If you matter in someone’s life, no matter how busy her schedule is, she makes time for you. She constantly misses dinner because she says she is busy. She does not even suggest another date to meet to make it up for not pitching. That one you really need to ditch now because she is not worth your time.

The backstabber

She acts all saint and swears that she will never betray you in any way but behind your back they talk trash about you. Her jumpy behavior and shifty eyes always give away how much she doesn’t mean what she says, as it will take her way too much effort to act like she actually care.

The ungrateful

You always do something nice for her and but she won’t even bother to say thank you for your effort. To her, what you did is something you’d have obviously done for her so she doesn’t see the need to show gratitude.

The bad influence

You most often don't come to know about this kind of a friend until you find yourself in big mess. She pushes you to do things you're uncomfortable with, like take you to a party you don’t feel like going to and wake up in some hotel with guys you don’t even know.

Call when need a favor

She only contacts you when she needs your help. Even when she did she doesn’t even start by asking “how have you been?”; she  just shoots straight to the point. Why keep someone in your life that doesn’t even bother to text/call just to ask “how are you?”
