Constant Bailing: 17 Girl Friendship Deal Breakers

Friendship is one of the trickiest things to deal with, especially when you're in college. It's difficult to navigate the treacherous waters that are the pool of potential friends, and you might sometimes find it easier to just stick with that old group of friends you've had since secondary school that have just carried over. But what if one of your friends is toxic to you? Or what if one of these new friends you're trying to make isn't good? Here's our friendship deal breakers that should have you turning away from these people and finding some new friends.

1. They constantly cancel plans without any warning or any explanation.

2. They're always competing with you.


Friendship isn't a competition, it's a team sport.

3. They're a complete attention hog, but don't give attention in return.


4. They're openly mean to you and put you down.


If they've ever called you names or been outright rude to you, that's a complete deal breaker.

5. They always pick a fight with you.


6. They're constantly gossiping about their other "friends" to you.


If they gossip to you then they probably gossip about you.

7. They borrow stuff but never return it or ruin it.

8. They always try to one-up you.



Similar to competing, they've always got to have the better story.

9. They embarrass you in public on purpose.

10. They sleep with your ex.



No. This one is almost grounds for an actual physical fight.

11. They essentially cock block you when you're out together.

12. They ask to borrow money a lot.

13. They spill a secret you asked them to keep.


14. They're constantly talking about their significant other.


Yes, it's grand to hear about your SO, but I don't want to hear it every time we're together.

15. They never chip in for gas.

16. They've got no sense of humour.


90% of what comes out of my mouth is meant to be funny or sarcastic, so if you can't pick up on that we've got almost nothing to talk about.

17. They push their problems onto you.
