7 Signs You're Talking To Someone Fake

They are just lonely people trying so hard to fit in.

7 Signs You're Talking To Someone Fake

Seven billion people, fourteen billion faces. Heard them deep people say that, right? People wear masks all the time. Sometimes for good reason, and sometimes to create a image for themselves. Often you feel surrounded by fake people that you actually want to give a high five to right on their face for faking it so well. Those are the people you meet in your day-to-day life. They also come as your friend, but you just cannot remove them from your life, right? Life comes with its own misery. Either you fake it along with them, or nicely tell them that they are doing a good job faking kindness and then slandering about people behind their back.

Fake people's words are not reflective of what they truly feel. They will say one thing to you, and another, completely different thing to a different group of people. They don't stand for something -- they are just there trying so hard to make themselves look good.

1. They are the center of the universe. Start a conversation and they will tell their whole life story.

2. They bring negative energy with them and will always talk about your insecurities.

3. They want you to be there when they need you. But when you need them, poof, they disappear.

6. They will brag about anything and everything.

You cannot really avoid fake people, because usually they come as "friends." Sometimes you end up listening to their life story and internally screaming because that is how nice of a person you are. You know they're lying but still listen to them with a nod and fake a laugh that you learned from them so well. Deep down they are just lonely people trying so hard to fit in.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.


I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.

Why I Don't Believe In Religion

I used to be comfortable with religion, but now I'm uncomfortable.

Rebecca Jarrett

I’m not one of those people who doesn’t believe in God because“if there was a God, why would He let such horrible things happen?” Saying that because sometimes bad things happen, there must be no benevolent higher power, to me, makes about as much sense as saying that because sometimes it gets dark, there must be no light.
