If someone had something to say why do they not say it to your face?

I don’t like people that are two faced to me they are just wasting my time. I have known people like that and all they did is waste my time. They would act really nice with me and asking for favors and money but when they turned around I was the worst person in the world. What I did notice about those people is that they are unhappy and they don’t like it when other people are happy around them. It is really sad that they are only happy when they make or have unhappy people around them. But I wish them all great things in their life so they can be happy and so they can let others be happy around them.

People have different personalities and approach. We have a lot of differences. Maybe one of the reason why they can't speak straight to your face is they are not confident enough, some are afraid to approach. Some are really that hypocrite. Some people need time to think before they can speak on face to face. Happy mylotting. Keep smiling !

Because they're fake and find security in presenting themselves as the most honest and trustworthy friend, spreading false rumours in order to put a wedge in the friendship of friends...

There are several reasons why someone may appear to be two-faced... 1. Often people cannot say what's on their mind to someone because they know that the receiver cannot take constructive criticism, and would only become offensive about it. So instead of starting an argument, they hold back. 2. Often those who want to tell you something, don't know how to go about it without sounding critical, and a not-it-all, so, again, they hold back. Unfortunately, they still feel the need to tell someone, maybe because they got hurt, or felt betrayed themselves, so they end up going to the next person they feel closest to, and relay the information to them, instead of the person they should be telling. If we want someone to be open with us, we have to be willing to take whatever is being told to us, without getting mad about it.

Generally those who are twofaced are insecure about themselves. They don't say anything to your face because as they are insecure they still have the need to liked by others, even if they dont like you. However they talk about you behind your back to others in the hopes that they will earn the trust of the other person, as they are sharing a secret about you. I've actually read that in a newspaper that people bond when gossiping together. However I still think this behaviour is dispicable as im a loyal friend and expect the same of my friends.

Sadly I thnk there are a lot of people like this. I don't understand it myself.It's like people that get a "buzz " out of gossip.
