Fake friends often take advantage of you. These advantages may include anything such as copying your work, stealing your ideas and more.

If you want to get rid of them, please stop any advantage they’re receiving from you.

When fake friends will not get an advantage they’ll automatically maintain distance from you.

I know you are a genuine person who respects the feelings of others. You may sometimes find it difficult to say “No” to people.

But, my friend if he/she is fake then why are you getting emotional.

Anyway, feelings are temporary. It’s time to open your eyes or you’ll end up nowhere in life.

Extra: Copying your work and stealing your ideas doesn’t mean he can work as efficiently as you can.

Avoid eye contact while talking to them

Having direct eye contact with the opposite person shows your interest in them.

People may get influence from you. But here the situation is something different.

You are trying to get rid of fake friends. So, what should you do?

Don’t have direct eye contact while talking to them.

How would you talk to them without having eye contact? It’s pretty simple, be busy while talking to them.

In this way, they won’t be interested in you anymore and the conversation will end up within a few minutes.

Soon, they’ll realize that you’re no more interested in them and they’ll leave you.

One more advice from me: Don’t start the conversation first. Avoid any conversation as much as possible.

Keep distance

Stay away from fake people as much as possible. It is one of the best ways to end up any relationship.

You have to stop being social with your fake friends.

You don’t need to put much effort into it. Psychology says, “People don’t like those who aren’t social and see them as inferior.” You can use this psychology to get rid of your fake friend.

Just keep a distance from them and the rest will happen involuntarily.

This point indirectly means that you won’t make yourself easily available to everyone because they’ll respect you less and they’ll think that you have much free time for them.

Then no one can protect you from being used.
