I do not like borrowing money from people. That being said, I don't have to borrow money from my close friends. I am financially responsible enough to take care of major expenses. The only time I would need to borrow money from them would be for small things like movie tickets or buying an item that I forgot at the grocery store. We buy each other small things like that all the time; we don't consider it borrowing. Instead, it is just what friends do, and it goes both ways, if they need something small I will buy it for them. If I really needed a big thing urgently, I think they would help me, but I wouldn't want to ask them because I would feel like I was taking advantage of them, and they probably need the money too.

what you mention about buying friends small stuff is appealing to me too~~my close friends and i also do this kind of things too.certainlt it shouldnot be called borrowing money.instead i regard that as a way to show the friendship and the intimacy between good friends,hehe~~~ but to myself i do sometimes borrow money from my friends when i am in badly need of money,and of course i would give the money back as soon as i have enough,hehe ~~~ have a good day
