    Anyone else have one of these? I guess friendship falls under relationships so I'm putting this here.


    A friend, who to be their friend, will try and bully and domineer you into doing things you wouldn’t do on you own?

    A friend who will more or less say, “You are either MY friend or theirs”?

    A friend who will try and dictate how you speak, control what you say and how you say it?

    A friend who insults you at ever turn and then says “oh sorry I didn’t mean it”?

    A friend who says one thing to you in private and then turns around and claims it never happened in public?

    A friend who will tell you that YOU are not a friend to THEM if you don’t do things the way they want?

    A friend who doesn’t like you to tell them the truth about themselves, their bad behavior or situations they are in?

    A friend who tries to get you to fight their battles and or side up with them if you want to stay their friend?

    A friend who tries to emotionally or mentally manipulate you?

    Not since grade school. I don't think as an adult I would get too deep into a relationship with a person before figuring out they were like that, and then saying "see ya".

    I had an acquaintance like that in 1st grade. My dad saw what was going on and explained a few things to me.

    No one who is a manipulative bastard is your friend.

    A friend doesn't listen to you one week, then use what you told them, against you the next week.

    I always figured that if a person has one friend in their entire life, theyr'e lucky. My definition of a "friend?"

    A person who accepts you unconditionally, faults and all. A person you can trust implicitly and who trusts you in kind. A person you could entrust with the safety of your children and loved ones without reservation. A person with whom you can sit in the same room for hours and utter not one word with no feeling of discomfort or awkwardness. A person who would help you hide the bodies with no questions asked and vice versa.

    A person who would help you move, across town or across country. A person you would help move, across town or across country.

    If you find one person like that in your life, you're lucky. That's a friend. A best friend.

    I found two. I married one of them.

    The other one helped me move to Albuquerque.
