They Are Constantly Changing Friends
When trying to figure out whether you can trust someone, examine their group of friends, as this will show you their true colors.
They Are Negative
Chances are, if a person talks negatively about everyone around them, they are going to do the same about you as soon as your back is turned. Since good friends are supposed to build each other up.
They Lack Empathy
Being able to use people for their own benefit, or not care about how their actions affect them, is not something that a caring person is able to do. Which is why having a dog-eat-dog outlook on life doesn’t always make you a reliable person.
They Are Reckless
Being reckless is one of the most common traits found in someone you can’t trust. This is because they often don’t care or think about the consequences of their actions. Which makes them believe that they can act out in any way they want, without fearing any possible retributions.
They Avoid Their Issues
Instead of meeting their issues head on, and solving them, they will let them pile up without so much as a second.
They Are Unfaithful To Their Partners
One of the most obvious signs that someone is not of the trusting type, is their incapability to stay true in their relationships.
These people are usually unable to keep a healthy relationship, thus resulting in them being alone for long increments of time.
They Are Highly Competitive
Have you ever had a friend that made you feel as though you were in constant competition with them? Even when there was nothing to compete about? When these people feel threatened, they tend to become competitive. This can cause them to be in constant opposition with their closest friends.
They Are Self-Righteous
When getting into a fight and bringing up this flaw, these people will be quick to turn the tables around. Making their friends feel as though they have a handful of issues, when they don’t. Worse than that, untrustworthy people often tend to be hypocrites. Meaning that they will tell their friends that their issues are invalid. While complaining about similar ones, but expecting to be listened to.
They Are Charming… At First
For some reason, untrustworthy people tend to be good looking or charming, which causes them to be desired and sought after. In a way, they use this to their advantage and sway people in their direction. To win the affection of others, these toxic people comport themselves in an authentic way. Once they feel as though unconditional love is on their side, they’ll start acting out, and showing their true colors.
They Are Materialistic
In order to spot these people out before getting too close to them, pay attention to how they treat people who aren’t ‘well dressed’ versus how they treat rich-looking folks. If they act superior around people who aren’t dressed to impress and are competitive with people who are, they might be trying to take on the role of the alpha.
They Don’t Take Responsibility For Their Actions
An honest person is going to take responsibility for their actions, should they do something to upset someone. Yet, when it comes to a dishonest person, they are most likely going to play the blame-game. Instead of admitting that they made a mistake, they are going to act as though it wasn’t their fault, but somebody else’s.
They Are Unapologetic
When someone keeps apologizing for the same action, over and over again, it can become painfully obvious that they aren’t remorseful in the slightest. Worse than that, some of these people might refuse to apologize altogether.
They Are Manipulative
They manipulate others into thinking that they are decent, when they actually have dishonest intentions. Also, unprincipled people are aware of their friend’s empathy and often use it as a means to be forgiven. To do this, they fake certain issues, pretend to be depressed or even suicidal, to obtain what they want
They Get Personal
One of the biggest giveaways, when dealing with someone you can’t trust, is their need to go up and beyond during a fight. Untrustworthy people often transform when angered or peeved, causing them to get personal with those closest to them. Any tidbits they have collected during their friendship will come out and get twisted maliciously, in hopes of hurting them.
They Think They’re Always Right
Have you ever been friends with someone who always had to have the last word? No matter how small or insignificant the matter at hand was, they needed to be right— every single time. Worst of all, in many situations they actually weren’t right, just stubborn and unwilling to admit that they had made a mistake.
