She’s bossy. She’s nosy. She does nothing but make you feel like crap. Guess what? She sounds like a pretty useless friend! Get rid of her before she does more harm than good

Oh man! I've had a 'frenemy' who was always in mad competition for male attention with me... to the point where if we were out  and a guy showed interest in either me or one of my other friends who was with us, this particular friend would engage in heavy-artillery sexual talk with them in front of us, and then later have the nerve to say how that guy really wasn't a good match for whomever he was initially talking to.

My sister was talking with a guy and she tried to engage in that behavior, but my sister and the guy just got up and moved to another table.  The next morning, he called my sister, but this friend answered the phone (she was staying over) and she proceeded to tell the guy a bunch of lies about my sister to crush his interest in her.  He called my sister later on that day and told her what this person said.

Needless to say, she got her can kicked off a cliff into a rocky cravass below.

If you have a friend who will do this, do yourself a favor and get rid of them sooner than later.
