Eight Red Flags To Look Out For In A Friendship

 

No matter how long or how well you know someone, it’s always good to look out for red flags. Here is a list of things you should think about:

 

1) Pay Attention To How People React When You Share Good News

Real friends should be happy to see you happy. If they don’t care, that’s a huge red flag.

 

2) Pay Attention To Who You Are Around When You Feel Most Like Yourself

It’s good to notice which of your friends you can be freely yourself with. Those are the kind of people you want to keep close.

3) Those Friends Who Only Talk About Themselves

There are friends who always talk about themselves and never ask about you. Those aren’t real friends.

 

4) How Your Nervous System Reacts

If you ever feel on edge or uneasy around a friend, even if it’s a feeling you can’t understand. That’s likely to be a red flag.

 

5) Friends That Disappear When In A Relationship

Pay attention to those friends that are only around when they’re single. They’re usually the type to come crawling back later expecting to find you waiting.
