The Non-Question-Asking Friend

No matter what's going on in your life, good or bad, this type of friend will never ask you anything about it. 

He is either: extremely self-absorbed and only wants to talk about himself, he usually avoids getting to close to people or he really thinks you're self-absorbed and doesn't want to hear you brag about your life.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

Maybe you don't even realize you don't enjoy being friends with this person, or maybe you just like the idea of being friends with them. 

Not because you dislike each other, but because you have no individual friendship with each other whatsoever.

Some ways to assess the nature of a friendship’s power dynamic: does one person cut in and interrupt the other person while they’re talking far more than the other way around? Is one person’s opinion or preference just kind of understood to carry more weight than the other’s? Is one person all...

You've been friends since when you were little and managed to stay friends through the years. 

You're probably creeping on this friend. He's not really a celebrity, you're just very well acquainted with their Facebook page. They probably have no idea this is happening.

He has tall walls up, at least toward you, and so he builds a little skit for you two to hang out in to make sure any authentic connection can be avoided.

This friendship would be a marriage if only the other person weren’t extremely not interested in that happening.

You may be the same age, but you have totally different existences from one another.

This friend only wants bad things for you.
