Do you have a flaky friend who’s always late, misses dates? Maybe it’s time to go beyond what you perceive and find out if your friend’s behavior is fueled by their ego or if they're unable to cope with their life. We’re often quick to judge, complain… but if you have a friend with this repeat behavior it’s time to go further into the why.
Do you really know what’s going on in your friend’s life? Go to blog.
The “Flaky Friend” Deconstruct Generally absent minded. I have a friend who loves to hang out with me when I’m around, but forgets me when I’m not in her immediate vicinity. I realize that’s just who she is. Now, I manage my expectations in this friendship. Find out how!
Overactive sense of self. Years ago, I realized that a friend only calls when she needs something. My ego-driven friend’s value outweighs what I consider annoying behavior, find out what to do to manage these friendships...
Friends who are truly suffering Friends who suffers; inability to cope, mental disorder and depression. I have friends who find it difficult to cope and they usually keep their suffering secret for a long time. Standing me up, breaking a date at the last minute is nothing compared to the days they spend trying to get out of bed.

Who hijacked your brain?
Often, as friends, you have to confess that you are (ahem) sometimes envious of your friends. She nailed a terrific promotion you wanted; he was your buddy but got into a loving relationship and now you're the third wheel. Your friend's teenager received top honors or landed a key position on the school's soccer team while your child struck out on both.
These people are your allies so why, why, why are you upset or snotty when they do well?
Envy is a Great Teacher.
Think about this: if your old school friend is doing well as a chef in Switzerland - do you care? No, you'd probably send them a congrats comment on Facebook. Or, you don't have children so if little Milly is excelling in nuclear physics you'd send her a personal email.
So why are you more competitive with your friends than with strangers?

1. Define Friendship 2. Does the Sex in The City type of friendship really exist? or is that just TV? (for those of you who don't know about the show, these ladies were truly ride or die for each other) They got mad, checked each other, cussed each other out and then some but the LOVE they had for each other out-weighed the drama they went through. and last but not least. 3. Can Men & Women truly have a platonic friendship and NEVER/EVER cross the lines?

Would you ask a friend for a favor? Asking for a favor, an advantage vs. exploiting their position or manipulating a friend. We're not talking “bidding” on Ebay, we're discussing the difference between asking for an advantage and manipulating your friends. Friends provide you with unique advantages in life and that’s the collaboration and sharing side – the sun shines for everyone. However, are you confusing asking for a favor or advantage with manipulating your friend – my gain is your loss. Advantage: “A factor or circumstance of benefit to its possessor.” Manipulate: “To change by artful or unfair means so as to serve one's purpose.” – Merriam-Webster Dictionary During the show we share personal stories and provide inspiring information. Call in at 347-324-3200 to share your stories!
The THREE “A”s for better friend communication and advantage: Ask; Acknowledge; Accept. Learn how to benefit from your friendships without exploiting your connection. Successful collaboration starts with you!! Go to www.superfriendgroup.com for Friend FAQs. To expect a friend to do your bidding against their better judgment means you don’t trust them. If you don’t trust them, why would they trust you? Be honest, be fair… and remember, a great friend starts with you! Image attribution Raul654 Wikicommons
Simon Cowell's friend story. The tabloids area splashed with details about Simon Cowell’s affair with Lauren Silverman, and fathering her child. While Lauren’s husband, Andrew Silverman, Cowell’s (former) best friend, is filing for a "fault divorce" even in a no fault divorce state. As Lauren’s only 10 weeks along, this is setting out to be the next baby du jour.
Real friends don’t dish dirt. In some articles Lauren’s “friends” claim she's a gold digger. Wow, imagine having friends that for (probably) a fee were paid to dish the dirt on you.
Pain from deception. For many of us regular folk, let's discuss what happens when your spouse/partner cheats with your best friend. You lose your partner and your friend at the same time. A double whammy. Lots of pain and hurt.
During the show we discuss personal stories of deception and how to survive the hurtful ordeal.
Be proactive. Ask yourself:
What if you truly fall in love with a friend’s partner?
What friends would stand by you and not dish the dirt to the tabloids for a fee?
How can you get through such a painful period?
