17 Signs You’re The Friend Nobody Likes

  • 0

Like all normal people, I can’t stand Dane Cook, but he’s said approximately one thing I think is absolutely true. In every group of friends, there’s the “Karen” of the group, aka. the friend no one likes. If you can’t figure out who the Karen is in your friend circle, that means you are the Karen.

Unsure if that person is you? Here are 17 signs that you’re the Karen. But real talk: we are all the Karen.

1. Your friends always conveniently forget to invite you to things or seem to be hanging out when you’re not around.

2. The people around you always seem to have in-jokes that you are not privy to, so you don’t know what they’re talking about.

3. Whenever you want to hang out with your friends, they always tell you how busy they are — but not so busy that they can’t hang out with other people.

4. You have to find out important news on Facebook, even though it seems like everyone else already knows what’s going on.

5. When everyone else is smiling in Instagram photos together, you’re the one who isn’t in the picture — because you’re holding the camera or sitting at home scrolling through the photos.

Poetry that will change you

This is for the women who are first to get naked, howl at the moon and jump into the sea. This is for the women who seek relentless joy; the ones who know how to laugh with their whole souls. The women who speak to strangers because they have no fear in their hearts. This is for the women who drink coffee at midnight and wine in the morning, and dare you to question it. This is for the women who throw down what they love, and don’t waste time following society’s pressures to exist behind a white picket fence. The women who create wildly, unbalanced, ferociously and in a blur at times. This — is for you.

“When Janne has a new poem written, I shut my life down to do nothing but read it, and then when I turn my life back on, everything is better.” — James Altucher

    After inviting 5 friends over last Saturday for a sleepover on this Friday night, EVERYONE MYSTERIOUSLY ALREADY HAS PLANS . This is why I am finding new friends. I feel like they are just politely listening to me. They forget about me all the time, and don’t care. I hope I don’t have classes with them next year- I want NEW friends who actually want to hang out with me, and invite me to things!! I haven’t gone to someone else’s house since February !!!

    This article explains it. I am fed up!!!!! I am this friend apparently, and now, they are going to loose a friend soon!
