Current User Vs. Logged in User

I am trying to make a friends list for my app and I want the user to be able to go to their friends list and click on one of their friends and it will take them to that friends profile page. When I set it up the way I’d think it should be set up which is Action>link>profile page>Current User, I just get sent to my own profile page when that should only happen if it was linked to the profile page of the logged in user? Would love some help getting past this hurtle as I believe that figuring out this will help in a number of other parts of my app design.
