Fake friend stories

My fake friend story:

I was friends with this one girl for maybe three months before I realized she was a moocher. She would only contact me when she needed something like a favor, was bored, or to complain about her many problems in her life. She would only want to hang out with me when none of her other friends wanted to. She didn't seem to care much when I would talk about myself or my problems. She's in her late 20's, unemployed and doesn't seem to really care about finding a job. I remember when I told her I was going on vacation with my family, she seriously asked me if she could come with us. I responded with no because my family doesn't even know her, and I know she would use them for their money. She never spoke to my sister, but when I told her my sister got a job at a hospital she asked me if I could ask my sister if she could find her a job. She was dating this guy who cheated on her and was mean to her, yet she stayed with him and used him for his money. She would always text me about how much he was hurting her emotionally and I tried to encourage her to leave him and stayed up all night talking to her, but she didn't want to leave him. I really didn't like her boyfriend because he was a jerk and he once tried to flirt with me! Once in the middle of the night, she texted me asking me if I could check to see if her boyfriend blocked her on social media. My answer was no because I don't use any social media and I didn't want to get involved in unnecessary drama. In the end, I realized she was using me. I grew tired of being used and realized she was a moocher, who was emotionally draining.  I stopped talking to her. I feel bad for her sometimes, but I remember how she treated me. She enjoys playing the victim all the time as a way to get people to feel bad for her. I do wish her the best in life though. 

What are your funny fake friend stories?

Had a chick who one bullied me throughout elementary so im not sure why i thought it would be a good idea to be her friend. Anyway we ended up becoming kind of friends in high school but she was always extremely pushy and bossy and just an overall B. but it escalated years later when she stole from me so i cut her off and actually ended up moving away. then about a year later i ended up moving back and thought i would let bigons be bigons and was friendly with her again but by that time she was married and had two kids and it was a mutual friends of ours bachelorette  party. And the party was thrown at the chicks house so we all got really drunk and the night was fun until everyone started leaving that when things got bad. Her husband had escorted another lady home because she was really drunk and only lived like a block over; he escorted her at his wife's request. and apparently he took longer then she thought he should so she left to go see what was taking so long and claims she saw he getting touchy feely with her. keep in mind the chick he escorted was the wife of one of his best friends so the likelihood of him cheating on her with his best friends wife is slim to none. So she comes back and is noticeably upset and is throwing a fit. and she tries to tell me what she saw and i told her that one shes extremely drunk so what she saw is probably not what she thought and to keep things short he more than likely didn't cheat on her. she got mad because i didn't take her side and pretty much made me drive home while i was VERY drunk, but not until after threatening to fight me if i didn't leave. needless to say we are officially no longer friends.

i went on a vacation with a really close friend who was already pretty problematic but i accepted her, flaws and all. we've been friends since grade school but grew extremely close once we graduated. i thought the trip went well but on the last day as we got back to the hotel, she went to shower and left her phone with me so i could charge it. my name popped up on the phone in a message from one of her other friends. it wasn't mentioned in a good light.  :alpacaconfused:

i know what i did was an invasion of privacy lol but curiousity got the best of me and i looked through to see tons of messages complaining and shitting on me. while there were valid complaints (that i'd appreciate her telling me irl -- which she didn't), some of it was also for the pettiest things (e.g. not eating fast enough, winning games, not wearing slip-on shoes). one incident especially baffling to me was me being 'fucking lazy' for taking a chair to sit on instead of standing while i styled my hair.

she was constantly telling everyone she knew that she's with crap company and she was also convinced i was talking behind her back. it shames me to say this but the day before the revelation, i had a heart-to-heart with her and told her i was glad we became friends, bla bla bla. in a message to one of her other friends she actually mentions this and accordingly said 'WTF'. it was truly terrible. i felt naive and dumbfounded. i really thought she was my friend.

the next day, i just pretended everything was normal and we went home and she never knew what she did wrong lol. we live in different states now and are pretty far apart so i slowly froze her out and just hoped i'd never see her again. sorry this didn't have a more fun conclusion, i'm really bad with confrontation :alpacaheadshake:

That is just horrible! And so fake! Once that vacation was over, I would have called her out on her backstabbing ways and told her to never contact me again. People like this need to be called out or else they're just going to keep doing it. So sorry you had to deal with this girl.

it's alright, i took it as a lesson from the universe and i'm in a much better place now! :alpacaheadshake: if anything, thanks for giving me an anonymous space to vent tbh. in retrospect, i definitely should have but i doubt that would change anything in the long run. we've been 'friends' for really long so we know each other's personal history. it's a lost cause really. let's just say, if she were an online personality she'd easily hit the 100 page mark on PULL.

I have some "friends" who were "friends" with me since 6th grade but suddenly in 9th grade they started hating and talking badly about me because I am an annoying and difficult person?? I didn't even do anything, I'm hella shy,  I literally never complain and when I say "no" or something once, I am suddenly a bitch. Alright.

My fake friend stories might be a bit more complicated..

So I lost a lot of I guess fake friends after I left my abusive ex. It was worse than the relationship ending because of my closeness with these "friends". I was too afraid to tell any of them what was happening in my relationship. I kind of regret not telling my now ex best friend but not so much after I saw how she really felt.. 

I'd been vaguely aware of how unhealthy my relationship was for awhile and was open to some friends about it. I think subconsciously at the time I just really wanted someone to sit me down and tell me straight to my face that he was abusive (which thankfully one of my friends DID do). I'd been extremely depressed and sick for months leading up to ending the relationship. Two of my tipping points before telling that friend were that 1.) I was becming increasingly aware I was being gaslighted without knowing what it was called, 2.) I developed a crush on a friend which made me immediately have to come to terms with the situation I was in (although crushes are normal in long-term relationships, I find crushes where they are incredibly intense to be a sign that there are issues in your relationship).

When I finally did leave him, our friends were shocked. My best friend had no idea and called me and we cried for about two hours while she reassured me. One of our friends invited me over for dinner a few times and fed me ice cream and would ask me to open up to her. I thought I could trust her because we were close and she was older than me and gave me a lot of advice and hugs.

Big ass mistake.

A little while later, after I'd made myself incredibly vulnerable to these two friends (while at the same time asking if it was okay) they came to me and abruptly cut off contact, told me I was too much, and that they no longer wanted to speak to me. I fell into extreme shock. My ex best friend called me a terrible person and said that I should have fixed the relationship and that I was equally at fault for it ending and should have done more. My friend other friend went behind my back and told my ex everything I had told her. They both said he was a flawless, patient person for having PUT UP WITH ME and that he could basically do no wrong.

I lost a lot of other people for the same reasons. Later found out I'm not the only person my ex has done this to. It sucked and I hope karma bites his fake ass and theirs.

Found out I liked one of my friends, dated him to annoy me/make me """"jealous''''''', cheated on him, then broke up with my friend to be with the other guy who then cheated on her, and stopped talking to us both. I knew her for a really long time. I hope she's having a good time though ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

 

woah, something super similar happened to me as well. That sucks.

Ranted about this person in the rant thread, but I'm gonna post here too because why not, sorry if it's too long.

 

I knew this girl for like 10 years, we were practically inseperable, she was my only friend for like 7 years. She would occasionally pick on me in primary school but I just assumed it was friendly banter and pick on her back. However in highschool she changed.

Year 7 wasn't too bad, I'm not sure if it's a thing in most schools in Australia but at my school during your first year they would place you in a class with one of your friends. My 'friend' was more talketive than me and made friends that I would kinda latch on to, they didn't particularly like me that much and they teased me for being an 'emo' and liking anime and heavy metal. Half way through the year we chose cricket as our sport elective only because it was free so we were placed in with the other dropkicks who didn't want to participate in sport and this is where I got bullied the most, there was this girl who was in the year above us, I don't really want to name her so I'll refer to her as H, and she was the ring leader, every Wednesday she would make the 2 hours of sport hell for me, eventually other people in my 'friend' group would join in, including my 'best friend'.

In year 8 the bulling got worse, eventually I reconnected with some of my other friends from early primary school and I sat with them at luch, H would often throw rocks and sticks at me (we had to eat outside) as my new friends sat on a bench directly opposite my older friends, H moved schools in around April (IDK it was in autumn) and my 'best friend' calmed down with the teasing. 

Year 9 my 'best friend' was the one being bullied and since I was still friends with her at the time I stood up for her, I was her shoulder to cry on etc. Turns out my 'best friend' talks shit about people behind their back all the time and that is what caused her to be bullied, wonder what she has said about me.

Year 10 was a stressful year for me, school got a little harder and my brother was diagnosed with cancer and of course my 'best friend' made it all about her. 

Year 11 school got worse but and 'my best friend' wasn't helping, she would constantly try to get under my skin and out do me in class, and thanks to my low self esteem and interest at school at the time she did. She would bitch about people behind their backs to me all the time.

Year 12 school was even more of a competition for her, especially since it was our last year, she would say really horrible things about me and my family just out loud in class thinking she was funny. She wasn't. She would brag about how many pages she had written in her word documents compared to me *bitch don't think I have no idea what double spacing is*. 

After our graduation in October of 2016 she didn't talk to me, she still won't talk to me.She's blocked me from all her social media accounts and has blocked my phone number. I was going to go to university this year but thanks to her going to my local one and my shit finsncial situation I'm aming to go to a better one next year.

Oh well, C'est la vie.

TL;DR I was bullied by this person for 10 years and I was oblivious to it, she was two faced as hell,yet I still tried to be her friend.

Had a group of friends a while back. Friend A, B, and C.

Saw friend A's boyfriend cheating on her with his ex while I was out. I told friend A and she got mad at me and claimed I was lying because she thought I liked him. This in turn made friend B and C get pissed off with me. Friend C called me up, claimed I was a "untrustworthy, lying, manipulative c*** that doesn't know how to take responsibility for things and likes to make yourself [me] look better than everybody else and has no concern about anyone." Friend B gave me a ride back home to college and proceeded to chew me out about the whole ordeal, claiming, "everybody knows you like [friend A]'s boyfriend, and we all know he wouldn't cheat on her. We also all know you stole my shit. It's not all about you every time, and I think it's time you finally f***ing understood that."

I had a boyfriend at the time. I dumped all three of them as friends and moved on.

Turns out Friend A's boyfriend cheated on her with Friend B and Friend C, while Friend B also had a boyfriend she cheated on. Friend A stopped being their friend for a while, friend C and the boyfriend hooked up, then they broke up and Friend B started dating the boy while still dating her last boyfriend.

I was friends with Friend B a little while after that but I just can't deal anymore.

Girls are nuts, man.

I dont really have a 'fake' friend story per se,
but here goes.
So Im not someone who makes friends easily, Im extremely introverted and I am really bad with holding up conversations/relationships with friends.
I managed  to make three friends at my current school, to my surprise. Sometimes it feels nice but often I feel like they only talk when they have problems with something.
Alright, I have a bunch of dumb issues that I barely speak of since I dont feel like they are a good subject for pleasant conversation, but sometimes I will have an anxiety or panic attack and I mention it in the group chat. It mostly just gets disregarded and I get answers hours later like 'oh , that sucks.' 
But if one of them has problems and shares them, everyone is expected to comment on it immediately, or else..
It makes me feel like Im still an outsider and that they are much better friends with eachother than the four of us together.

I'm not sure if this counts yet since I don't know what's honestly going on with my friends anymore but I've got to get it off my chest before I explode.

So I haven't heard from 2 of my closest friends in a while. I've known friend A for around 11 years but recently it feels like we're just 'off'. I'm not sure if it's our personalities changing or what. And that's  never been an issue before but lately they don't bother to contact me at all. Not even a text to say hi. Usually I'm the one who always takes the initiative to talk/make plans but lately I'm really fed up with it. I feel like if someone wants to see/talk to me they will make/take time to. It's been almost a month since I last talked to friend A and the last time we hung out we had a great time so I'm just really stumped/hurt. 

I've known friend B for a couple of years or so now and we get along great..or so I thought. Lately they have been so flaky. Anytime we plan to hang out (even when they plan it) they flake on me at the last min. Every. Single. Time. They even called themself out on it and said sorry they were a terrible friend and blah blah blah..but..like..c'mon. I know they have work and other responsibilities..but so do I and I make sure I plan around it.

So yeah..I'm not sure if my friends are just actually busy/going through their own personal crap in life..or they could just be shitty people..but I think I'm just sick of it at this point.

Thanks for making a thread for this. I currently don't have anyone close I can confide in so Pull will have to do :alpacacrush:
