Here’s What Makes a Person “Toxic” and How to Unfriend Them

According to Florence Isaacs, author of Toxic Friends/True Friends, a “friendship is between two peers…with a balance in the friendship for it to be healthy,” she tells WebMD.

“[It’s not] one person whose needs get met and another whose needs are overlooked,” she adds. “Friendships are important everywhere, and they have positive things to contribute to all areas of your life. But that means they can also be toxic in any of these areas as well.”

A toxic friendship: “unsupportive, draining, unrewarding, stifling, unsatisfying, and often unequal.”

“Toxic friends stress you out, use you, are unreliable, are overly demanding, and don’t give anything back,” she says.
