We all have friends that we love to hate. Whether they are the town gossip or the endless whiner, these friends never really act like true friends and yet for some reason we seem to keep them around. Here are some personality traits to watch out for in your group of friends.

Gossip is a reflection of insecurity in the person who is initiating it. Negative comments made behind someone’s back are often made to make the person feel more powerful. In addition, the gossiping friend is sending clear signals that they can’t be trusted. If they are willing to tear down one friend they are probably willing to do the same to you.
