When it is someone you may never meet again and just want to be civil and respectful to in the moment, there is nothing wrong with that. These are one-off situations that rarely occur, and typically only with people you are unfamiliar with for the sake of civility. When it comes to close friends and family, you take the mask off and are genuine with what you say and your actions. A fake person approaches every relationship with a mask and every interaction is tainted by some level of insincerity. Fake people struggle to be genuine—even with friends and family who they are close to. People act fake for various reasons, including something as innocent as insecurity or as malicious as manipulation. However, when someone close to you is fake and every interaction with them is lacking sincerity, it can slowly become toxic and turn to manipulation. There are some people in our lives who like the spotlight and tend to be a little self-absorbed, but even with these character traits a genuine person can set aside their spotlight and help you through a rough time. Sometimes it is hard to make schedules come together or life gets busy and you have to cancel, but a genuine person will communicate these struggles and work with you to make something come together. No one actually wants to help their friend move from a third floor walk-up, but genuine people will even if they complain the entire time.
