Meeting new people is awesome. You learn about various things through different opinions. Friendship is a trade of values and a special experience. No matter is that friend real or virtual, are they from your city or even out of your country, every friend is a new lesson in your life. If you are optimist then you believe that you met a friend for a lifetime. If you think different, something tells you that other person will take an advantage of you. Simply, someone will screw you.
If you wish to avoid "I told you" opinion, the little guideline will help you to recognize person under the mask before he shows real face.
What kind of friendships is the most suspicious?
Friendship at the first sight.
When someone calls you "my bestie" after few days of the hangout, something is wrong in the air.
Friendship connected with a bottle.
These are drinking buddies. If you drink together, it doesn't mean he is your best buddy. He is someone who will bring beer to the party.
Someone you know because your father was a great friend of his father. They would be happy that their children associate, but it is not always a smart idea.
This is someone who needs you to give him money. Every time when he has financial troubles, he calls your number.
The lover in the background.
If you are a woman, and he is a man, he could use friendship as an excuse. You decide is that good for you.
A business partner.
He is someone who asks a business connection. If you are successful or rich, you will have a lot of such friends.
You are the most successful guy on your team? Girls always seek for you? Other boys also want their piece of cake. They wish to go to parties with you because you know the best cheeks.
Word friendship is easy as a prostitute. People will use it for many purposes, but what is in the real background? Make a test. If you always drive your friend at work, tell him that your car needs new tires. Tell him to pay for gasoline. If you need money, ask your debtor so you will see the answer. If you ask for the business opportunity, wait until your friend makes a success. Then ask him to help you in a progress. People are surprised when roles are changed. It is great when you catch people for your purposes. Once, when someone needs something from you, when you need to return the favor, things are different.
Real friends will be beside you without questions. In this example, Lara learned about her friends.
Lara and her cousin Valerie were rivals from a childhood. Simply, they could not stand each other. By mistake, Valerie got the letter which was made for a guy, Lara's crush. Valerie read this in front of her friends, and they were laughing at content. Lara was ashamed because this guy was her secret desire. She needed friends in that time because it was uncomfortable in school when everyone laughed. So, Lara had three friends, Diane, Andrea, and Sarah. Diane supported her immediately. She even told to Valerie that she is not cousin and that she is a disgrace for her family. Andrea was quiet, she did not want to involve. Sarah laughed together with Valeria, she wanted to be with someone who is popular, and Valerie was popular.
How do you know can you count on your friends? Betrayal is possible for many reasons because people have a price. They will make a treason because of a popularity, money or love. They will revenge if they think you don't treat them properly. In this masquerade, you might get surprised by a real face undercover.
A fake friendship has three main characteristics.
It happens suddenly, and it finishes suddenly.
This kind of friend seeks a revenge after friendship breaks.
The fake friend will gossip you as you never existed.
The real friend is a loyal, honest and patient. The real friend knows that people are made with faults. Someone who truly cares about you will not turn you back on the first sign of trouble. The word which connects friends is togetherness. We are in all this together, because we are friends.
