Q.

Isn't it natural to hate people who pretend to be your friend but, wouldn't like anyone know their friendship with you and wear different masks for everyone to be in their good books?
Do you have a term for such mean, selfish people?

Tags: money, relationships, good books

In the modern era i can't call them selfish but as "practical " people. BECAUSE THEORY OR IDEAL THINGS ARE FOUND IN STORIES OR BOOKS.

The terms mean and selfish titled by you are enough in itself for such people. But positively speaking, it is an art as per W.B, Yeats's Theory of Masks which depicts the essentiality of changing our masks in each situation before each individual and each time, as per the circumstantial requirement.
