how do you keep your friendship. I have an officemate, he bought a new cell to one of our friend. after few months the cell was damage. she told our friend about it and he get the cell phone for repair. she gave extra amount for the repair cost, then she knew that her cell was lost..our guy friend told her to payback but till these days--over 5 months still no news,..is it right for my friend not to confront this guy? coz she doesnt want to ruin there friendship?

your friend should have a heart to heart talk with the guy. and since they're friends they should be open on whatever issues they have. the guy owe an explanation to your friend explaining why he lie and broke the trust of his friend. in that way they will able to weigh things out if they still want to be friends or just give up the friendship.

Hi. Keeping friendship is ver hard thing o do especially when theres something that happened between the two of you. In your case, I guess your friend should confront that guy. It's very hard to bought something nowadays especially cellphones.Knowing that they were friends she should confront the guy or just simply ask him of what happened to his promise that he will pay it back. Anyways, if they were really friends,theres nothing wrong with that atleast your friend will no think and think of when will be her cellphone be given back to her.

thank you for your response. well you are right, but my friend has no phone to use, its quite big amount involve, yet we observed that this guy seems no effort to resolve the issue. question? how far would you be patience to a friends weaknesses? would yo put limitations to it?

hi,ledeenz! i think your friend is absolutely right to confront this guy ..because she had gave his money on the cellphone for repair cost..i wonder why this guy don't give any response to your friend since he promised her to return the cell..did he wanna take the cell as his own or is there something wrong with the cell while being repaired? anyway, you friend should ask him why he do so face to face, don't worry about ruining their friendship...
