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.

Narcissism is never a particularly attractive quality.

Which is rather ironic, considering narcissists believe they are simply the be all and end all, that everyone wants them or wants to be them.

Yet spending extended periods of time with people who are so egregiously obsessed with themselves can be simply exhausting, as they frequently find a way of veering the conversation back to themselves.

Making it all the more tempting to give them a taste of their own medicine, and find a way to annoy them.

With more and more unfortunate stories about misconduct in the news, there is an understandably low opinion of police officers in the United States.

Though we should always remember that the corrupt or ill-suited cops we read about in the news do not represent all police officers.

For law enforcement is by all means necessary, and can be an extremely taxing job, both physically and emotionally.

With many police officers coming in contact with people who have gone through experiences no one deserves to go through.

The term "fan" is believed to be derived from "fanatic" or "fanatical.

Meaning "a person filled with excessive and single-minded zeal".

Indeed, some fans simply can't hide their excitement for their favorite franchises, sports teams, recording artists, or political figures, no matter how hard they try.

Resulting in the birth of such monikers as "Trekkies", "Beliebers", or "Cumberb*tches."

And while these passionate, some might say obsessive, fan bases often find compatriots at conventions, premieres and meet-ups, those unfamiliar with the apples of their respective eyes might be confused by their level of fandom, if not down right annoyed.

Usually when we meet someone for the first time whether at a social function, at work, or randomly in public, we generally have a good Spidey sense about the type of person they are.

Even with alcohol in the mix, our instincts can be dulled but we still continue engaging with someone who seems outgoing and friendly enough at the bar.

But we also have the ability to tell right away if that person doesn't have good intentions.
