How do you know if someone is really your friend? Well let’s look at some reasons on why that person isn’t your friend, shall we?

Number 1: If he/she BULLIES you in front of your other peers, then you need to CHECK them.

Number 2: If he/she only calls you when they need money or need to vent all their problems to you then they are an opportunist.

Number 3: If he/she talks about you behind your back and lies about it, then you should fall back on the relationship.

Number 4: If he/she lets you get jumped by random people because of something they did to another person, then you need to square up with them.

Number 5: If he/she doesn’t believe you when you tell them something bad has happened by someone they know, then you need cut that person off completely.

Number 6: If he/she only calls you when they have broken up with their significant other, then you need to stop answering their phone calls.

Number 7: If he/she doesn’t want the best for you and is always a debby downer, then you need to separate yourself from that person.

Number 8: If he/she doesn’t check on you and see how you’re doing then they don’t really care, and you shouldn’t either.

So, if any of these reasons match the status of your friendship then that person is not a real friend, he or she is a FOE. If these reasons don’t match, then you have a REAL FRIEND for life.
