8 Ways To Differentiate Fake From Genuine People

Read these hints that can tell whether a person is worth-befriending or not.

Our elders would always advise us to surround ourselves with good people who can help us through life, and discard all the toxic ones who drag us down. Since it is our nature to easily adapt to our surroundings, it makes sense to hang out with people sporting good values so we might soon duplicate their ways. Likewise, being with bad influences can mold us into equally evil-minded people. But how can you tell whether you are with the right or wrong group?

It can be hard to tell right away whether a person is genuinely good or just pretending to be one. The sad fact here is that you will only see someone’s true colors during adversities when it is already too late to get back the trust you’ve given.

Building friendships is almost a life necessity, but you have to be careful on investing your trust. The good news is that there are ways to easily determine whether a person is fake or genuine. So look at these pointers that can help you run away from the wrong people.

Respectful vs. Lofty


Someone who’s genuinely respectful will show respect to everything and everyone at all times. They always take a person’s feelings into consideration regardless of their status in life. They will also do everything in their power to make others feel comfortable. On the other hand, a fake person will show respect only to those who are in power. Because of their desire for any gain, they are ready to put up an act to please people in ranks and later enjoy the benefits of doing so.

Meek vs. Recognition-Seeker


Genuine people don’t require any recognition for the favors they do for others. Their sole purpose for helping is to make others happy. Yet again, they don’t need to do the extremes to please others, but if they do, they don’t go out announcing their acts. Fake people do the opposite. They will help you with anything but will talk about their deeds so others can recognize them and praise them endlessly.

Hidden vs. Spotlight


There’s nothing wrong with staying in your personal corner to enjoy your privacy and comfort. Genuine people will not go complaining about being alone and those who are around them can respect and understand their private time.

On the other hand, fake people will throw tantrums when the spotlight is taken away from them. These people are attention seekers and would do anything to stay on top of the crowd. They ridiculously believe that the world revolves around them and only feel satisfied when they see all eyes are on them.

Humble vs. Narcissistic


Genuinely humble people will never brag their achievements to others. Although it’s nice to be recognized for achievements, they will still prefer not to talk about their winning moments and would rather hear success stories of others. Fake people will desire otherwise. They want to be recognized for their achievements so they will talk about their stories to others, sometimes, more than once. They want to take the center stage so they’ll keep on bragging their assets at all times.

Honest vs. Backstabber


A genuine person never plays backstabbing games. They hold on to their respect for others so they will tell their concerns directly to the person involved and will hope to resolve any issue that arises. A fake person will avoid confrontation. They don’t like to confess their issues so they smile at their enemies but will talk about them the moment they turn their backs. They love to gossip about others and enjoy drama.

Walk vs. Talk


A genuine person will try not to break a promise. But if they can’t avoid doing so, they will take responsibility instead of giving excuses. A fake person, on the other hand, will give big promises but will rarely fulfill them. They won’t feel sorry for upsetting others who hoped for what they promised and will come up with a long list of excuses instead of why they can’t walk their talk.

Contented vs. Perfectionist


Good people accept their imperfection and will thank others who try to impart new lessons to them. They are grateful to those who help them gain new knowledge as they love learning something new. Fake people despise others who make them feel less than perfect. They aim to look at others’ mistakes so they will have reasons to criticize them.

Real Friendship vs. Friendship For Benefits


Genuine people make friends simply because it’s in their nature to be friendly. They help others without expecting anything in return. Fake people only want to be associated with people they can benefit from. This is their interpretation of surrounding themselves with good people. Instead of finding friends who can help them develop a better character, they only accept those who have the power to return favors.

Man Finds Himself In The Background Of His Fiancee’s Childhood Photo

Could it be pure coincidence or destiny?

By

Love, an old popular song tells us, moves in mysterious ways and it sure has been a mystery for Verona Koliqi and Mirand Buzaku. The two has recently been engaged and soon thereafter, they found out about one strange coincidence – they were in the same beach (and were just a few feet away from each other) about 10 years ago.

Call it coincidence, fate, or whatever you will! But yes, that’s exactly what happened to these lovers and they were indeed delighted with the discovery.

Coincidence or fate? You decide!

In an interview with Yahoo Lifestyle, Verona shared:

“My cousin found this photo on her computer, and she sent it over to me on my phone to laugh about how we looked when we were younger.”

The said picture shows a group of children posing at a Montenegro beach. Later, Verona thought she’d show it to her fiancé. Much to their surprise, Mirand looked closely and found himself in the photo, too!

Added Verona:

“He said, ‘Hold up, I think that’s me!’

“We both looked at each other and said, ‘No way, that can’t be true.’”

Mirand recognized the float and the shirt, claiming he had those same ones when he was a kid. Mirand’s family eventually confirmed this saying they had gone to the same beach at the time.

What makes this incident special, however, was the fact that Verona was visiting from London while Mirand was visiting from Kosovo.

She also said:

“I never knew something like this could happen, even though I’ve heard a saying: ‘You will have passed your soul mate at least once way before you actually meet up.’”

The two formally met in Kosovo in 2016 and they eventually fell in love.

She reflected:

“We exchanged looks every day we saw each other but did nothing.”

After a year, he proposed to her while they were in Turkey.

Verona told:

“I had no clue he was going to propose to me, because in our country’s tradition, engagements are planned and have to be agreed by both beforehand.”

The photos later went viral when Verona shared them via Instagram.

Well congratulations to this adorable couple! May they have more happy memories together in the years ahead.

Woman Undergoes 30 Surgeries To Look Like A Porn Star For Her Boyfriend

Her boyfriend criticized her and compared her to other girls.

By

When you love someone, you would sometimes go overboard just to please him or her. This way, you can show your love and affection. However, a 22-year-old woman loved her boyfriend so much; she underwent 30 plastic surgery procedures just to look like a porn star.

Berry Ng, a YouTube star from Hong Kong, underwent several procedures over the last five years, just to impress her (now ex-) boyfriend. She’s now regretting her decision.

Berry said that she started resorting to plastic surgery when her ex-partner compared her to supermodels, particularly porn stars.

As a result, she spent more than $3,000 to have her eyes, cheeks, forehead, nose, breasts, and chin fixed.

Her surgeries started when she was just 17 years old. She found a beauty center that offers student packages.

She got addicted and couldn’t stop undergoing beauty procedures.

In the hopes to impress her boyfriend, who always complained about her overall appearance, she underwent all the cosmetic procedures, which were completed when she was just 21 years old.

Sadly, despite all her efforts to change her appearance, they were still unable to impress her then-boyfriend.

He still criticized her appearance and compared her to other girls. This pushed her to go under the knife more just to gain his approval.


Berry said:

“At that moment, if he had stopped me and told me that I was beautiful enough, I would have stopped, but he didn’t.”

Her ex-boyfriend even insisted that her breasts were too small.

Berry underwent a breast augmentation surgery. The guy, however, said that he did not ask her to do the operation.

Berry got fed up and broke up with her boyfriend.

Now, she has recovered from her addiction to plastic surgery.

On her YouTube site, she regularly posts videos warning other girls against going overboard with plastic surgery and the ill effects of being addicted to cosmetic enhancements.

Berry learned one thing from her experience, that is to love yourself no matter what others say.

Guy Learns To Break A Glass Using Only His Voice

Can the high C of a trained soprano really quiver glass into dissolution?

You’ve probably seen something like this before in movies and TV shows. A particular scene where a character sings up to the point where they hit a note so high and intense that it breaks all the glass in the vicinity, even the windows.

Another particular thing that you’ve probably seen many times, a woman in an orchestra releasing an earthshaking high note that shatters Champagne flutes. Monocles crack and the chandelier explodes as the power of her voice wreaks havoc on the concert hall. This scene is too common in countless cartoons and comedies, but is this parody based on reality?

Can an opera singer really shatter glass?

To most people, this may just seem like a cartoonish exaggeration. But, believe it or not, with enough practice to attain the right pitch and volume, this is actually possible.

Physics suggests that a voice should be able to break glass. And that’s what exactly what Scottish YouTuber Mike Boyd wants to accomplish in the latest video of his Learn Quick series. Mike challenged himself to learn how to break glass using only his voice.


It took him 4 hours, 29 minutes of practice over the course of 14 days before he gained the ability to shatter a crystal wine glass with the power of his voice.

So how is this scientifically possible?

Well to begin with, sound is also a form of energy, just like electricity. It travels through various substances in waves. When a sound wave comes in contact with a certain object, it excites the particles present in that object, causing its particles to vibrate against themselves.

Glass wine goblets are especially resonant because of their hollow tubular shape, which is why they make a pleasant ringing sound when clinked. An empty glass is also easier to shatter than a glass filled with wine or water. Furthermore, minor defects in the structure of the glass can also help to shatter it more easily, as these defects provide ideal weak spots.

So if a person sings the same tone as that ringing sound when glass clinked — a high C according to legend but in reality the matching pitch could be any note — the sound of your voice will vibrate the air molecules around the glass at its resonant frequency, causing the glass to start vibrating as well. And if you sings loudly enough, the glass will vibrate itself to smithereens.

If you’ve ever doubted your ability to accomplish new things, Mike Boyd’s YouTube channel is the inspiration you’ve been seeking.
