32 Signs You Are A Bad Influence On Your Friends


That friend that your mama warned you about way back when you were a teenager, otherwise known as the “bad influence” friend, will forever be unavoidable, especially in college. Back in the day it was referred to as peer pressuring, but once you become 18 or older it’s considered demonizing. You are old enough to make decisions on your own, but this friend always paves the way for you to use poor judgment. There’s one of these friends in every group. You just can’t say no to them. This buddy always gets their way. But what if you are that bad influence and just didn’t realize it? Here are a few signs to show that you might just be that person.

  1. You told your friend to get bangs.
  2. And then she did. (Not a good look on her.)
  3. People tag you in inappropriate posts on social media saying, “so you.”
  4. Some may call you a brat because all you care about is getting your way with others, and you won’t stop until they do as you please.
  5. You’re usually already drunk when the rest of your crew is contemplating whether or not it’s too early to start drinking.
  6. You encourage your friends to skip the gym so they can go have a few drinks with you.
  7. Even if your friend says they are low on money, you encourage them to purchase a new expensive Yeti cooler.
  8. If you want to swap spit with a random frat gent, you make sure that he has a decent-looking friend so that your little can follow your lead.
  9. When your friend throws up, you hold back her hair and then hand her another shot.
  10. Exec tries to keep you away from new members.
  11. You’ll always find a way to pull your girls onto tables for some bumping and grinding.
  12. When your girl gives you her outfit options, you always help her pick out the sluttiest one.
  13. Your friends’ boyfriends almost always disapprove of you.
  14. You are everybody’s favorite drinking buddy.
  15. In times when other people were asleep, you have drawn inappropriate pictures on their bodies, mainly penises.
  16. There have been numerous times that you’ve told someone to break up with her boyfriend because you thought your friend could do better, and also because you needed your single friend back.
  17. “But it’s Tuesday Boozeday! We HAVE to go out!”
  18. Thirsty Thursday is also a holy day of the week.
  19. Instagram pics don’t lie.
  20. You guilt your friends into doing whatever you want. “I made an F on my exam because I was busy helping paint your fuck buddy’s cooler with you. You owe me.”
  21. Your advice for when a friend says they have to get up early: pull an all-nighter.
  22. Regina George is your spirit animal.
  23. You probably even created your own Burn Book that your friends love (or feel forced) to help add to.
  24. You are the first person people go to when they want to know what there is to do every night of the week.
  25. There’s no way people will let you be the DD.
  26. You’re notorious for telling off your friends’ shithead ex’s and starting drama.
  27. You don’t ask your friends how they feel about pouring shots down their throats. You just grab the bottle and their face, and then one thing leads to another.
  28. Your solution for all of your friends’ problems is booze.
  29. Even when your friend says she is going on a diet, you insist on going to Olive Garden.
  30. You’ve created Tinder accounts for multiple of your friends.
  31. You listen to a lot of Ke$ha and Nicki Minaj.
  32. “Fuck it” and “Do it” are basically your catch phrases.

Ah well, someone’s got to be bad.
