The purpose of this research was to examine the relationship between Machiavellianism and some characteristics of same-sex friendships. Machiavellianism was positively related to the amount of lost friends and negatively related to closeness, friendship satisfaction, friend's support satisfaction and evaluations of partner's supporting behaviour. These results suggest, that high-Machs may fail in long-term, intimate relationships.
