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.

4. They will smile to your face and then backstab you.

5. They have all the time in the world to lie and make up stories.

6. They will brag about anything and everything.

7. And that fake laugh they do when they are around the popular-rich-I-don't-care-whatever group.

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.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
