Friendship is not something that can be forced.

As with any kind of relationship, it all depends on compatibility and chemistry, and thus must happen organically.

On the flip side though, it can be pretty clear when people will not end up being your friends, owing to a fundamental difference in personality or beliefs.

Redditor Chola_Bhatora was curious to hear the type of people the Reddit community would never become chummy with, leading them to ask:

"What kind of person would you never be friends with?"


Basically, people who aren't nice

"People who don't apologize for their mistakes, blame others for their problems, and generally complain without doing anything about their situation."

"Oh, and generally a**holes."- NerdyDadGuy1981

"People who are overly rude and constantly laugh it off and call themselves 'a**holes' as if it is an uncontrollable character trait."- Business_Grand7665

Don't you twist my words around!

"People that distort what you said."- Mystery_I

Just take some responsibility!

"People who can never admit they're wrong about anything."

"No matter how blatantly wrong."- Rachfo44

Say it to my face!

"The kind that talks behind your back."- 0breanna0

Are you sure about that?

"Someone who thinks they already know everything."- Fragrant-Crow-4513

Then why aren't I laughing?

"Someone that puts you down in front of your other friends.. 'as a joke'."- motherfugher

How well do you actually know them?

"People who abuse your trust and honesty to manipulate you, especially when they disguise it so well."

"Had it one too many times, thankfully gets easier to spot but some people are freakishly good at it."- nothingjustk

Yeah, well mine's better!

"One uppers."- BasedChickenTendie

Someone needs a lesson in self respect...

"I'm a woman."

"Had a classmate strike a conversation with me for the first time."

"2 minutes in said she doesn't have female friends because all women are b*tches."

"Why are you talking to me then?"

"What do you think you are?"- Minimum_Greedy

As Jane Austen famously explored in Pride and Prejudice, first impressions can often be misleading.

But every now and then, they can give a crystal clear depiction of who someone really is.

Which could easily be someone you do not want to be friends with.

With so many streaming platforms and too many recommendations to watch your friends' favorite shows, how do you prioritize what shows to watch?

Those who can afford to sit in front of the TV all day–because that is the commitment it takes to start making a dent in your viewing playlist–must choose wisely in determining which shows to start binging.

If a show fails to grab your attention from the get go, you might be prone to ditch it and go on to the next one on the list.

The risk of course is you might be missing out on something that is worth sitting through the slow-burn, exposition-y episodes of a show that is trying to establish itself at the beginning but becomes wildly rewarding towards the end.
