People Explain Who They Could Never Be Friends With Under Any Circumstances

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.

Some people truly think the world revolves around them, which is why it's so satisfying to see them get what they want.

Consider: When was the last time you saw someone in public freak out in a store and demand to speak to the manager? Did the manager acquiese? Or did they stand up for their employees?

We're used to hearing about employees getting the short end of the stick, of course. But the moments when things go the other way—and a terrible nuisance finds themselves unable to get what they want—is truly a sight to behold.

In short: Saying "no" or putting people in their place is the ultimate power move.

Considering how much money these films make, I understand that I am in the minority when I say that Marvel films have absolutely overstayed their welcome. What once seemed fairly innovative—the current generation of the MCU really took off when Iron Man proved to be a tremendous hit—now feels stale.

I accept it, though. These films are not for me and never have been. That's okay. But it'd be great if we could have more room for other great blockbuster films other than yet another superhero movie.

People Confess Which Things They Find Absolutely Cringeworthy

We've all displayed embarrassing behavior or actions at one point or another, and we can't seem to shake off the regretful moment.

It just replays in our minds like an endless boomerang.

We are equally embarrassed for those who may have done something spontaneously foolish and have no clue of the mortifying impact of their actions.

Sex. It's great, but there can be a lot of drama involved.

We're human, how could there not be?

One way to make it easy is to say the right name when you're in the heat of things.

Seriously, we know this sounds like a small thing, but it's monumentally important.

Make sure you know your date's name.

If you don't, take your date to Starbucks and have it written on their cup.

It might be REALLY important later in the evening.
