Do you have any friends that you find are untrustworthy? Why do you continue to be their friend?

There are really different kind of people. But it should hinder us for trying to befriend them. If you find them anooying or untrustworthy then better make necessary adjustment but doesn't necessarily means of giving them up as frineds. But if they have bad influence on you, then you have to leave them and look for those who deserves your honest friendship.

What do you do with them though if you can't trust them or talk to them because they just go around and talk behind your back about you?

Yes ,of course.The best part of it is if you find such a person among your friends list it is a good thing because you tend not to share your feelings or else it could be the worst disaster.I have a few of them and i call them friends in the same sense as they call me a friend. So even if you find a fair-weather friend in your pal then the best advice I would like to give is to continue accepting him as your friend ,but only in a superficial aspect.This is necessary because if you deny him or turn him down or reject his friendship, this so called ex-best friend can turn out to be your greatest foe. They know your weaknesses more and turn out to hurt you often.So beware!!

Such a relationship is of no use,but I dont like to say anything harsh to them.I just behave like how they behave to me. Just a superficial relation and no deep-hearted feelings.

Hello there. I used to have many untrustworthy friends. I am glad I have slowly stopped keeping in touch with them. I put my attention on more worthy friends. We only have 24 hours in a day and we should make full use of it. Other than friends, I need to set aside time for my family, work, exercise, love and etc. I do not wish to waste time with people who are unworthy of my friendship.

That's good that they're not in your life anymore. They usually just bring people down.

Hi there. At present and for a few years now, I have'nt had friends that were untrustworthy... But back a few years ago, I would've had the odd foe as a friend... Now I dont even bother to surround myself or family with this kind of nonsense...

If ever my i find out that a friend of mine is untrustworthy... then he or she will cease to be my friend... trust is one of the foundations of a good and true friendship... is a friend cannot be trusted...then that foundation is gone... i need a friend to whom i can confide my problems and secrets... and a need him or her to keep that secret...

I used to have a colleague as well as my friend. But I don't have him as my friend any longer as I find him untrustworthy and jealousy to me. Now we are just ordinary colleagues instead of being friends, but we still nod and say hello to each other, just this.

I don't have enough time in my life to keep friends who ae not trustworthy. If they can not be trusted, then they are not worth my time, or my friendship. I am not interested in keeping company with people who are not worthy of a trusting friend.

I didn't have a friend, but a husband who was untrustworthy. I'd find that he lies a lot about stupid things. But because of that and other things I am not with him any more. I think that trust is the most important thing in any type of relationship, husband/wife, friends, co-workers whatever. If you lose trust, you probably lose respect for them as well.
