If I have a selfish friend, I 'll make sure this he/she never ask for my help. I will teach he/her a lesson. What about you?

Argh! They are so freaking annoying. I had one just like that during my H.S. days and even if we're studying on the same college. I am soooooooo glad I ditch him! I am sooo happy that I was able to make an excuse not to talk to him again. In fact, I erase him of my yahoo messenger list. This so called friend of mine is a pig, he loves money. He would often come to my house for free food. He never gives good advice when your in trouble and would often laugh it off. Also what piss me off is that when you need to borrow some money even for just a small amount, he wouldn't give it. SOME FRIEND WHO HAD GIVEN HIM FREE FOOD ALL THE TIME. One day, I realize what the heck am I doing with this pig? I make sure that I need to get him away from my life, which I successfully did! Haha... I got mad at him for some small mistake of his and turn it into a big deal.

well that is a genuine selfish person, where material things is the most important to be considered as a friend, well it is hard to ditch them without saying something bad or hurting him/her, well it is good for you that you've made way to avoid him/her without any great confrontation.

Frankly, a selfish friend can't be my real friend. I don't like this kind of person. It's very bad to use others all the time. I don't like keeping in touch with such kind of "friends".

I've experienced this sort of friendship in the past and it's absolutely miserable. I try real hard to distant myself from these types of people. Too many others out there who are willing to be friends, contribute to a good friendship and be trustworthy. It takes two people to make a valuable friendship.

I do have a selfish friend too....Im gonna say more like self-centered. I was close with her at one time and got tired of being treated the way that she was treating me. I am still her friend, I just have separated myself from her to a certain degree. We stil do things together but I make sure that it is something that I want to do and like.

Selfish people never can be friends with others. If they are treating someone as their friend that is also to get some benefit from them only. It is always better to be away from such people and if you happen to be friend with someone like this. There is no need to teach lesson to them, it is better to learn lesson from such people. Move away from such a person and live peacefully. If you are around a selfish person, you cant live peacefully too.

I think everyone in this world is kind of selfish in some ways. It is a nature of human being.maybe in your eyes your friend is selfish, but have you ever think of that maybe in his/her eyes ,you're selfish,too? so if i have a selfish friend, i will tell him/her how i feel about him/her, and help them improve.Selfish is like a shortcoming of a persons, everyone has his own shortcomings.we can't just abandon a friendship because of this.However if this friend is stubbon on his selfish and won't listen to my words, i think i will give up this friendship.

I'd tell them frankly how I feel about them, and it they are really my friend, they won't take my word as offensive but an advice from a concerned friend. If they still continue being selfish, then that's about the time that I'd consider of giving them a lesson to learn. If still they don't realize the mistake they have been doing, that's the time where I would end the friendly relationship we have for it is not that healthy for the both of us to continue what we thought things should work..

I would not have a friend if he/she was selfish. Selfish people and I just do not get along.
