Friends come and go. That is just a harsh truth about life. Not everyone we bond with is meant to be a forever person. And we have to accept that that is ok. However, there are certain ways to lose friends with swiftness. We alienate and insult, even when we don't mean to. But we also learn that people flee because of their own psychosis and we are more the wiser for it. Sometimes it's a good thing and sometimes not, but it is always... just a part of life.

Redditor u/Ti83PlusGuy wanted everyone to share all the best ways to end up a party of one by asking.... What's the fastest way to lose all of your friends?


The 3rd Wheel.

Start dating a controlling/manipulative person. The kind that will lie to you about your friends to drive a wedge between you. middleagenotdead

After School... 

Finish school and enter adulthood. SlowlyGettingFatter

My boyfriend is still friends with all of his buddies from school, they all travel cross country to meet up a couple times a year. He's 36. I don't understand how it's even possible. I live in the same town I grew up in and the extent of my communication with my high school friends is when I run into them at the grocery store, we chat for a few minutes, say we'll grab coffee some time, and then don't.

"Hi Andrew... I'm Chris Hansen..." 

So this seems like a fine a place as any to push this thought into the world. Have you heard of that app Cameo? Basically you pay a set rate and you can get a bunch of B and C level celebrities to leave a video text message directly for you.

Chris Hansen is one of the options you can buy for like 50 bucks. Imagine getting the following video text message...."Hi Andrew... I'm Chris Hansen..." thestereo300

Chronic Issues. 

Get sick with a chronic illness... being disabled can be a very lonely thing. better-now

My last year of college my illnesses got the best of me and I barely graduated. Lost all of my friends over a few months because I was no longer able to go out with them or keep any sort of social life going. Realizing that the group I was closest with had all gotten together right after graduation to have a joint party without even inviting me was a horrible feeling to top off the horrible last semester. A year later and I still don't talk to them. Feels bad man. Panda4545

Hold them close and lick their ear sensuously. blublablublu

Calm down Bucheratti. GlacierWolf8Bit

I used to have a friend like that... The novelty wears off faster than you'd think. deeweromekoms

Truth Hurts. 

Start critiquing them on all their flaws, all the time; everytime. Abscritical

I am this exact way with my best friend. When in the group we are best friends, when it's the two of us, all we do is argue.

His wife refers to me as his husband. acava2424

In the Bedroom. 

Sleep with all of their boyfriends/girlfriends and post everything online - with rankings of who was the best. ThenaJuno

You joke, but I had a semi "friend" who did this. She was dating my friend, and then slept with my now ex-husband and both of his roommates.

You suck Tabitha. Pun intended. Borderline_creative

It Works if you Work It. 

Quit drinking. kindamanic

Going through this now. I actually just got out of rehab for the second time on Saturday. It sucks. Especially because you know you could slide right back in to the group. It would just cost me my job and eventually my life. antialtinian

Close all those doors. You don't need those people. Addicts need to be loved and nurtured back to health. Keep a small circle of trusted and true people. As you go along your journey, you become more at peace with your own company and learn to love yourself, by yourself. And it's so awesome, I promise you that. Stay strong pal. Fetafloom

Like Britney Said...

Push them out of your life because you feel as if you're being a toxic nuisance to everyone you meet. ThatThonkingBandito

I love characters I love to hate.

Even when I hate them I can always find the reason they're involved in the story, so I find it difficult to want them to be erased.

Certain characters flaws and the most heinous decisions are written to further story and bolster the audience's love for the heroes.

So as much as we loathe them, we need them; much like our enemies in real life. That is what makes compelling drama.

Redditor u/nekoandCJ wanted to spill the tea on the characters we could do without in our favorite stories by asking:

People of reddit, what fictional character do you hate with a passion?

When we're kids, we expect the adults in our lives to notice everything, know everything, and maintain a just, sound moral order.

Psh, don't hold your breath.

Modern medicine is a marvel. It's the reason why we've been able to effectively eradicate some serious diseases and improve the quality of health care around the world. When you take these two things into consideration, it's easy to see why vaccine hesitancy can be such a frustrating topic for people right now.

Many people would not be able to survive without the benefits of modern medicine. That's what we learned after Redditor forevernostalgic23 asked the online community,

"If modern medicine didn't exist what medical condition would have died from or been severely impacted by?"
