I have a freind who is still freinds with a guy who ripped me off and treated me very badly, I met him thru her.When it first happened she was very mad at him.But as time went by she's back to letting hang out with her.Hes also ripped her of a few times. I constantly amazed at the people that I see at her place, she even stays freinds with people she knows have stolen from her.Can you really be so desprate for company ypu put up with anything ?

I enjoy my own company, so I certainly wouldn't have anyone in my life who stole from me or caused trouble for me or my family. I think a lot of people like to feel 'needed' and 'loved', and therefore put up with a lot of rubbish from people who use and abuse them. It's very sad. I think life is less complicated without a lot of people hanging around. I only have a handful of true friends I'd trust absolutely.

missbdoll I would rather be bymyself than put up with people who rip me off and mistreat me. they are not my friends as they have shown by thier actions so to' heck withg them. my friends are people who care for me and about me and respect me for who I am. they do not steal from me or mistreat me in any way. If I have people who do not respect me, I get away from them at 'once. life is too short. lets enjoy it while we can.

I wouldn't. If someone stole something from me, that would break my trust forever.

My sister is just like her. I am the type that if you burn me, then later. But my sister have been through the same thing over and over again. It is her giving nature and I hope that she will learn from these to be more subjective in the future. I don't understand why she keeps doing it to herself. I wouldn't give these people my time. If it means being alone then fine, I like hanging with myself great and do it all the time. LOL

I guess she only wants to make us all relaize that it's not innocence, but she looks and treats her friends equal. Be it those who did her rude things, or for those who treats her fairly. But if this continues to go on and on, I'd suggest that you talk to her and ask how she feels about those thing that's been happening around her.
