We are a group of 5 friends who share the same intrests, have the same thinking and we like to spend most of the time that we get together. We all have tried never to let money get inbetween our friendship but oflate one of our friends has started take too much intrest in money matters. Well, what he does is whenever we all are out together he does not like to shell money at all. So we all end up paying most of the time. Earlier we thought might be he needs some cash which is resulting in this kind of behaviour but then we realised that he is doing so coz we dont even ask him to pay and he is saving the money fro himself. Comeon, we all need to save money but by eating on others money is a no-no. We have started to think that money has got into his head and whenever he call us all he talks about is money. So now we have started to avoid him completely. i dont know if this is right but this sure is working for us!

You owe it to him, if he's been your friend, to have a frank talk with him. Money can't replace friendship and the amount he saves is so very little compared to what he gets from associating with you that there is something very wrong if he values the money over your friendship. This is a sickness and he must realize that he's making all the wrong things important. I wish you luck and hope you have an honest talk with him.

I wish i could be that frank with him. But he is the type who dosnt like to take critisism at all. i had tried to be frank with him but he just disconnected the fone when i wanted to discuss his attitude. Just a week back one my friendcalled me up telling me about him and his behaviour, we all have tried our best now we have thought of leaving him on his own. When he realises that he has money but no friends he would definately come back to us!

I think you would be wise to take that course of action. If you don't, you're doing him a disfavor. He must learn to correct this fault of his or he'll end up failing in life and relationships.
