The 6 zodiac signs who make the WORST friends

Friendship is probably one of the most important things that can happen to a person in a lifetime. We need friends. We need loyalty, people we can trust, people to share our lives with. We need people who tell us the truth when we need it, and when we don't need it as well.

That's what friends are for: to share trust, to share love. But when we take a look at astrology, there are a few zodiac signs who are bad friends. There's a lot of pressure on being a good friend, and some folks simply aren't up for abiding by the rules of friendship.

Not everyone wants to put in the time listening. Not everyone wants to help. Not everyone wants to share in return. A good friend is usually a friend that has proven their worth in the friendship, and, more often than not, our best friends are the ones we picked up in our youthful days. Time tested friendships are the ones that last.

But some people cannot be good friends. Whether it's their selfishness or their lack of interest, it's best to avoid trying to be friends with people who cannot stick to their promise... or their word. Some examples of friendships you should avoid are the zodiac signs who are bad friends.

1. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Here's where that famous bit about Gemini having two sides to them comes into play. Friendship is important to Gemini, but there is always a side to them that is skeptical and somewhat negative about friendship.

Gemini is born with trust issues, and giving themselves over to friends unconditionally is something they find extremely difficult to do. They consider the idea of friendship, but rarely stick around long enough to make it real.

2. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Way too into themselves to even bother treating another with the respect of friendship, Aquarius is just an altogether selfish "friend" who will throw you or anyone else under the bus, should a bus present itself.

You will be blown away at just how cold they can be in friendship; you will be sacrificed, ignored, thrown away and made fun of by your Aquarian good buddy. Not worth it for one split second.

3. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libras are treacherous; they hold nothing sacred and honor only their own self, which is OK for them, but not for the one who befriends them. The concept of friendship seems cool to Libra; they like the whole notion of two people sharing some kind of commonality, but the truth is, friendship is for someone else.

Having a Libra friend is a study in how they will betray you after a while.

4. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Well, what's good about the awful friendship a Sagittarius provides is that they are up front about what they give: Nothing. Sagittarius will tell you right at the top, "I am not a good friend so don't rely on me." This is where most people laugh and ignore the warning.

So, when your Sag friend doesn't get back to you, doesn't show up for your party, and doesn't listen to your sob story, you shouldn't be surprised. They warned you. At least they were honest.

5. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancers are just hard to get along with, which may not seem obvious until you get to know one. There's a difference between "very friendly" and being an actual friend.

Cancer is super friendly and open, but when it comes to trust, Cancer backs down time and again. They are not to be trusted as friends, but as acquaintances, they do the trick for temporary companionship.

6. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

The thing with Virgo isn't so much that they make for bad friends, it's that if you ARE friends with one on a long-term basis, you will find yourself in an on-again, off-again relationship.

Virgos are fickle and impulsive, ending friendships easily and without remorse. So, be prepared to have your friendship unilaterally ended at their whim.
