Why or why not?

I think it can be a good idea as long as you have every intention of paying them back asap. I don't borrow money from friends only because of my pride. I dont want anyone to know that I'm not able to handle life on my own. And also because you never know what can come up - I don't want to promise anyone that I'll be able to pay them back and not be able to as quickly as I first thought. And also I don't like for anyone to have anything to hold over my head. I just avoid the situation. I think the real question should be - should you lend money to friends? My answer would be no...not unless I could trust them with everything in me....like my best friend of 10 years - anyone else - I don't think so.
