It’s an awful feeling when someone you thought was your friend turns out to be your frenemy. There is nothing worse than having someone who is not on your side who is in your inner circle of friends. As soon as you find out that a frenemy does not have your best interests at heart, stop sharing anything personal immediately.
Kara became friends with a girl who had transferred to her college and didn’t know anyone. Being kind, Kara invited the new girl, Lila, to events and parties that her group of friends were attending. After a while, she started noticing that Lila would try to start hanging out with every one of her friends that she introduced her to, without including Kara.
One night Kara found out about a party that Lila was going to through Facebook. When she ran into Lila at Starbucks she asked if she had plans that evening. Even though Lila was going to a party that night, she said she had nothing going on and didn’t tell or invite Kara to the party. At that moment, Kara realized that she was a frenemy, not a true friend. Kara was hurt and devastated but she was also done with the friendship.
Don’t waste hours of your time trying to figure out what went wrong in the relationship. There’s a pretty good chance you did nothing wrong, for all you know your frenemy could be jealous of you or feel competitive.
These clever comebacks will let your frenemy know that you know that they are venomous, and are not interested in hearing their snarky insults and offensive comments.

- I’m sorry you got offended that one time you were treated the way you treat everyone all the time.
- You would be much more likable if it wasn’t for that hole in your mouth that noise comes out of.
- I never gave you a reason to hate me. You’re just creating your own little drama out of pure insecurity.
