I spent a good part of my life with very low self-esteem and felt the urge to pay for things. Just throwing money around to get and keep attention. Finally my friends sat me down and asked me what I was doing. "It's okay, let me get that." Do you do this or do you know people that do?

My husband does this all the time. It drives me crazy. The sad thing is, it makes others uncomfortable to have someone pay their way all the time and that is not his intention.

I had a terrible habit of doing that. It took a long time to learn to keep my mouth shut even if I had the urge. It's nice to be offer or take turns. Let other people share in the fun of paying.

I don't do this but have known people before that done this. You really shouldn't have to pay for friendship. They should like you for who you are and if they don't, then you don't need them as a friend anyway.

I think in a lot of cases they are liked but just don't believe it. Low self-esteem is a crazy thing making for crazy ideas about who is and isn't a friend. Thanks for your reply.
