I got a big friend called mine, he´s always short of money. he has got a good job i thought he would get paid enough for that job. but every month he asks for money. if i can give him some, i do, but i can´t give every month, thats impossible. Do you have expierences like that?

i have a boardmate who always borrow money from me since last last year. i'm so fed up that until now she's paying me little by little every month. it quite a big amount, and we're not that close friends. i'm now living in other boarding house that is far from her. so it's very difficult for me to go in her place just to collect some of my money.... i hate it!

I have a friend that always he ask me money for do something and tell that will pay back soon. I borrowed a lot of money but once, he didnt pay me and I nevermore borrow money for him. He is very boring, he always asked me but now i dont trus on him and I will not borrow anymore. He go out with your girlfriend and ask me money for me. He say that he doesnt have money because doest work. Why did he go find a work? But he is my best friend.

I do and have friends who were short on money and needed assistance from time to time. I was willing to help those times because it was not much that they needed and they paid me back pretty quickly. I try to help my friends when I can but I am not always able to do it myself.

I have many and I find it hard to keep them away. I don't have the knack or guts to ask them to give back my money, because I am afraid if others will think I am cheap, or something like that, so I try to avoid giving money to such people. I have no other option, as I am so weak at asking back.

uh that may be a big problem. i don´t think that you cheap if you are asking for your gived money. it´s cheap if you don´t give money back i think.

Unfortunately I do have a person who is constantly asking for money. Usually we don't have it as we live paycheck to paycheck as it is. We try to give it to him when we can, but if we can't then we can't.
