Survey: Eight in 10 people have "toxic friends"

Just how bad are our so-called friends? Sixty-five percent of you have been stuck with a self-absorbed sidekick (easily recognized by their fondness for the words “I, me, mine”) while 59 percent have been buds with one of those draining emotional vampire types…

Overly critical chums were next on the toxic friend hit list, with 55 percent of people having to suffer through their self-righteous stinkeyes or critical tirades.

Friends who undermined with insults or backhanded compliments came in at No. 4, with 45 percent admitting they were buds with a backstabber…

Finally, flakes ranked fifth on the toxic turnoff list, with 37 percent owning up to an unreliable chum.
