it's a tough question and I always hear that money will destroy frienship if you lend or borry money from your friends,but I believe everyone will have a difficult time when they really need the other's helps.we should help the others in the bad situations,especially the ones have their own dreams,help him when he is really poor is more valuable than appreciate his success when he is achieved. so how do you think about this? thanks and happy mylotting

I do help friends that are in need of money and more times than often it doesn't come back. But that doesn't stop me from giving them money when I have it as they would really need it at that time. Sometimes it does become annoying when they tend to act differently or start avoiding you. But if a friend asks me money I have no other choice but to give it.

I think it is depend on your friends. Around me, I have a few friends, they are usually help me when I need them. Although sometimes we have some dispute. I have a story. There was a girl, because some reason, she had no money in other city, she want to borrow some money from her all friends, and want to go back her hometown, but no one of her friends lended her money, they were afraid that she maybe not come back. So, no other choice, she was forced to sell her body. I think a lot. If we can do a little, this girl may be better, have her new life. If we can do, and they are really need our help, why not? Maybe you can save a person's life or change their fortune.

It depends on the friend and the reasons why they need the money. There are certain friends whom I'd never lend money to, simply because I know what they're like and I know I'd never ever get paid back. Or if I did, it'd be in tiny small amount over 30 years or something.
