YOu're talking about acquaintances, people you know, rather than actual friends. People who don't like who they are, may lie about it, so as to appear better to you, and they may even be lying to themselves first, to help themselves to feel better about their weaknesses and failings. Its a broad area, including self-esteem and self-image, and people who have problems liking themselves too often, instead of working to improve the aspects of themselves which they don't like, prefer to pretend everything is marvellous. And you've found, this doesn't do them much good, nor the people they get to know under false colours
