I lent some money to three friends already years ago.now facing the financial crisis,my compang doesnot pay me the two months wages.i cannot pay my bill,my rent.... otherwise,these friends always call me said they want to borrow money from me again.of course ,i didnot lent money to them this time because i didnot have money.i cannot open my mouth to ask they to give back my money.it is dificult to me. so,if you in my shoes,what do you do?

You don't have it in writing do you? You need to confront these friends and demand your money back. It's not fair that they haven't paid you back in YEARS, and now you NEED it. So tell them about your situation and the seriousness of it, and demand to get whatever you borrowed back! In the mean time, you should also look into that situation at work.. They can't just NOT pay you for two months. You could consider talking to a local lawyer or union about it.

i often meet the same questions as you.every time my good friends ask for borrowing money from me i will lent to them,and never ask them to pay back the money,even i need it.as their friend i trust them and i am willing to help them. if i realy need the money,i will think of other ways like asking for help from relatives or other friends.

I would go and ask them for my money but I would not expect to be paid back since people who never return money they borrowed have no intention of parting with money once it is in their pockets. I think you should just try anyway. Cheers!!

You need to talk to your friends, let them know about your situation and ask them to repay you. But, don't be surprised when they come up with excuses. This is why I never loan money to friends...I give it to them if I have it. If I don't expect it to be returned then it's a nice surprise if they do and, if they don't, I'm not upset about it.
