have u faced any situation where you purposely dint helped your friend, as you felt you may be in trouble ,some friends are of such a kind where we cant avoid them neither do help them , what would you do in such a stage , example if a friend ask u some money and u are fully aware that he wont repay in time what u need ,what you would do ,if u got money also but ,cant trust him then , and he keeps on force u then what would you finally decide to help him or not too , but they money you posses is really needed for you..and he is forcing you so much emotionally

Just be careful because some friends do not keep their words and end up not returning the money to you. Maybe talk to them and ask if they need the money for something very important to them and that they will pay back. I had a friend who borrowed money from me because she was shopping that day and realized she hadn't enough with her and asked me to lend her. So I did but she never paid me back. However, not all friends are that, some are honest.

being cautious also sometimes makes me feel guilt that i dint helped him , after being asked to me.

Can try helping him one time if he needs your help that badly. But if he doesn't pay you back next time, either he has forgotten or he hasn't the money to return you. But you can tell that after awhile, if he doesn't seem too bothered with returning you the money, then he's not that honest and reliable being a friend to you, Ramesh

I have a friend who always has problems with money, and he will always come to me and ask me for money because he knows that I work hard in my job and am good at saving money, and will always have more money than he does as a result of this. I used to lend him money, but soon found that I just wasn't getting it back at all because he would make endless excuses about why he couldn't give me the money back. I can't really afford to give money away to people for free, so now won't give it to people who I don't think will give it back to me when their time for the loan is up.
