Default A weird question

Has anyone out there ever felt like people are pretending to be friends with you just so they can mess with your head? Intellectually I know this sounds stupid but it's a recurring thought in my head when I'm having a rough patch. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

I feel the same but then question my paranoia as reality suggests that just because we over think or analyse it doesn't mean everyone else does as well. Friends a're there because there is something in you they like and because you give them something they need. If you feel someone might be less than genuine it would show in their interactions with others as well. Friendships are reciprocal so if the benefits no longer outweigh the negatives then you might think of changing things. Question whether their behaviour has changed or that perhaps the analytical part of your brain is working overtime
