17 Signs You’re The Friend Nobody Likes
You have to click from one page to the next and there are three or four pages.
Number one: “Your friends seem to invite….” THERE ARE NO FRIENDS TO INVITE ME ANYWHERE, period. No one to invite nor not invite. No one.
Number two: Yeah, the jokes and whispering. I don’t even bother. I ignore it because in my opinion, talking about people behind their backs is kids’ stuff. Never mind cruel.
Number three: Well, yeah, the obvious lies and excuses. Don’t people realize that we aren’t dumb, we KNOW when you are lying and making up excuses. I think it’s obvious that “my phone was plugged in” cannot be used ten times in a row or it’s too obvious. I think also “I had the flu” cannot be used for six months. I doubt anyone had the flu that long. “I don’t have time for you” won’t float when you are sitting at the pool with your other pals.
I do not have any room in my life for such snobbery anymore. I have no more tolerance for lies and excuses. People who lie and make excuses should just say flat out “I don’t like you and don’t want to be your friend.” Or just be honest. “I am ashamed to be seen in public with you.”
Number four: What defines “important news”? Sadly, I found out that my nephew earned his Eagle Scout award in a random Google search, years afterward. Do you readers out there realize how sad that is? No, they didn’t tell me, the aunt. I am not considered part of the family. Too sad.
Number five: I don’t do instagram, so….
Number six: No one is around me. I cannot yet find anyone willing to spend time with me. So I cannot answer that. I keep trying, though. Why is no one willing to spend time with me? Is that asking too much? Last time I asked someone, it was obvious arm-twisting on my part so I told the person “You don’t have to, that’s okay,” just to get the person “off the hook.” Of course, if it’s a “duty” it won’t be enjoyable for either of us.
Number seven: All the time… But as I said, no one ever hangs out with me and I spend all day alone, so the question does not apply really.
Number eight: I suppose I have hundreds of contacts and it’s true, I can call NONE of them. I cannot tell you how many I have written to recently and have not gotten a return email. I think the bouncebacks are worse. Those reminders that they see me as worthless shit that they don’t even have time to send a personal response to.
Number nine: Less close? No. That’s an understatement. Literally dumped by my friends means just that. Most never speak to me anymore, do not write and do not call.
Number twelve: I have no in-person friends to tell jokes to so I cannot test this one out.
Number thirteen: Last time I was in a group of people someone made a remark that he was “offering an alternative” to this gal sitting next to me, suggesting that maybe if she was not enjoying speaking to me she could gladly switch to another person. What was even sadder still was that the guy assumed I didn’t understand the dynamics of the situation. YES I was wall aware of what was going on and yes it was truly insulting. I didn’t know what to do. I said nothing because it all happened so fast.
Number fourteen; Forget holidays. They are a big nuisance to me. Yes I spend them alone and I am determined to change that. Well? Next year maybe.
Number 15: I can’t afford to go to the movies, and don’t want to anyway. It would be too hard to stay awake for a whole movie, no matter what time of day.
Number 16: There are no parties. I have no friends to uninvite me to parties.
Number 17: Texts, oh god…..Why not pick up the phone and actually talk? Because I know no one wants to hurt my feelings but they don’t want to be my friend and most do not have the guts to say so.
See you later.
