15 Revealing Fake Friend Quotes

What is it in the human psyche that craves friendship, sometimes at any cost. How can you determine who is a real friend – and who is the fake?

These revealing fake friend quotes will go some way toward helping you understand the difference.

The sad truth is that for many people, a true friend is very difficult to find in our modern society. The very essence of friendship is also its weakness. True friendship must be totally reciprocal; each must he there for the other at all times, and in all circumstances.

Unfortunately, fake friends are never there when you need them the most. They put little or no effort into sustaining the friendship. They simply have other priorities.

Sometimes, you can identify fake friends, since they frequently seem to have negative judgmental attitudes towards things you do or say. And, worse than that, they gossip about secrets of other people, so, you have to ask yourself if they also gossip about you. Another aspect of fake friends is that they don’t keep their word, or do what they say they will do at the time they are supposed to do it.

True friends, of course, are the exact opposite. They guard your secrets, keep their promises, check that you are OK, and don’t judge you. Basically, they are simply there for you whenever you need them.

In many of the quotes the author is not known, but that does make the sentiment expressed any less valid.
