they need something from you? Let's just say, they USED you because they want/need something from you. Did you encounter or experience this kind of situation? If yes, what will you do?

yes.Depends who we're talking about. I don't mind if it's my friends or family just don't overdo it. Or I'll just make it a give and take situation.

hi pinkista, 1. I make sure that no one can use me. 2. But if i fail to protect myself, i learn from my mistake and next time become more careful. As well as i give credit to that fellow who, despite my best attempt, could use me. After all that fellow is more intellectual than me.

Lets face it, some people are like that. You would find some people who never look or speak to you would suddenly be very friendly. Then you would realize that the reason is that they needed something from you. I am in the IT field and sometimes there are people in the office that would seem very nice and would seem to act like they want to befriend you. But when they leave the company, there would be no more communication between you and them. That is life, we use people and we get used in return. You just have to be careful not to let them use you to your disadvantage. SFC

Definitely yes. That's a very common occurrence. But I've done what I'm supposed to do and that's it. I don't care anymore if they just approached when they needed something from me. I'll continue to do my best to help out even if in the end they'll just discard me because they already got what they wanted from me. I'd feel bad but that's life. Whatever motives they have is their business and I hope they're happy with it.

At first, I will think about whether this man/woman is my friend, and whether I care him/her. If yes, I would like to be USED if I can help. If not, I will leave with my fastest speed. :D
