10 signs that it’s time to ditch your BFF

Maybe it is the way she looks at you, maybe it is the boyfriend advice she gave you, maybe you just don’t get a good vibe. If you’re unsure about whether your best friend is actually a Best Friend For-Never, here are the signs that it’s time to cut that cord. 

You catch them staring at you quite a bit. Not in a pervy way but as if they’re plotting your demise. If you ask them what is wrong, they will smile and say nothing and continue to do it. Something isn’t right here.


Selective texting
You’ll notice they’ll only text you when they want something, be it to talk about themselves or they want you to go drinking with them. You text them and hear nothing. “Oh my phone’s been acting weird.” “I didn’t get your message.”  Is it because they hate you? Or do they just not care?


They always have an excuse when you ask to meet. People might wonder why you haven’t copped on already. But you are a nice person and you thought that you two were friends. How many excuses is it going to take? You’re starting to see a pattern, aren’t you?


When you fail, their reaction is slightly disturbing. It’s not that they laugh or make it obvious that they are happier now than  before you lost your job – there is just an odd smirk. You’ve also heard that their face lights up when they retell the story.


Back Handed Compliments
You may find them sending you weird signals. These signals are in the form of compliments. “You look nice…that isn’t something you would normally wear.” “That kind of drama would just never happen to me.” How have you not known by now that this girl isn’t your “BFF for evaaa xoxo”. It is okay at least now you know.

No matter what you do or what you say there is a sigh or an eye roll. Dancing in a nightclub, talking to a friend or voicing an opnion. Anything can cause disapproval.


Lack Of Support
You could have been mugged on Grafton Street or clamped because your ticket was the wrong way around. No matter what it is they will not support you. There is no sympathy there whatsoever.


They are either constantly criticising your boyfriend or repeatedly pointing out they scored him three years ago. There is no boundaries or no respect here. They hate your happiness.


They will tell you to “Shhh!!”, they will tell you that you wouldn’t understand and they’ll even tell you that you are stupid. They’ll also patronise you whenever you speak.

Sober, it’s just the subtle jibes that are thrown your way, but once a drink hits their lips, all hell will break loose. They’ll tell you they’re “just being honest” and then they will point out every single flaw you have.
