In some cases, a false twin flame can actually turn into a real twin flame. We can not give up on people right away after a couple of bad encounters.

You may have met under unfavorable circumstances that led to the start of a false twin flame; however, after a while, your circumstances will evolve and the beginning of a true twin flame can emerge.
Keep your eyes and ears open and don’t give up just yet. Give the relationship or friendship another try and see where it leads to. If positive signs begin to appear, hop on that and hope for the best. Positivity goes a long way.
