Quite a few years ago when I lived in an apartment complex, one of my male neighbors moved in with me because him and his girlfriend split up. He was ordered by the cops to stay away from her. He and I became good friends. He bought a lot of food for my apartment as I was having some financial problems. He started showing me affection and I felt like I was falling in love with him. Then, I found out he was secretly sneaking over to his ex- girlfriends house and he had only been using me to be closer to her. He finally went back to her and then he demanded that I give him his food back. He was going to leave me with nothing. What did I learn?... never to trust anyone. I almost didn't find love again because I was afraid of being used.

oh that was really a sad one. i'm sorry for that. well, i dunno what to say but just to stay focus and don't feel pity for yourself. see to that nonsense guy that you're okay even without him and of course, you definitely not need someone like him to your life. move on, wishes you the best of luck! God bless

I think we all can say that this has happened to us. True friends are very hard to find. Especially ones you can trust. I have been stabbed in the back so many times by "friends" But they have only made me stronger, now i am more cautious when it comes to people, although the good ones have to wait till I can gain their trust. It all works out in the end. Great discussion btw.

No not really but there was this friend who requested me to be a business partner with her or to buy items from her. I refused both coz I am not a business person, I am more comfortable with an office job and secondly, I had no use of the items she was dealing with...they were quite expensive and beyond my means, but she never believed that and severed all ties with me. Now I am not sure whether she betrayed our friendship or I betrayed her trust...in any case, the lesson I've learnt is that never talk business with friends.

It is the WORST feeling when a good friend betrays you in any way. I have certainly had this happen to me in my life. When a good friend steps away from a friendship and does something that they know is going to hurt you, like lying or cheating you in some way, I think it is time to take some time off from that friendship. I don't like to hang with people I don't trust. I do forgive, though. If a friend has betrayed me, and enough time goes by, I am always willing to re-open communications and learn to trust and love again. Have a great day!

To me frienship is very very important, and I'm always frank and honest with all my friends. I sometimes happened to have fought with my best friend because of some little betrayals of his, like - for example - when we had to go to an important performance in a far town and when I went to call him, his mother told me that he was not at home, so, very astonished, I went to the football ground and saw that he was playing. I entered the football ground and asked him: "What about the spectacle?" "Can't you see?" he responded to me "I'm playing football". So I had to go to that performance alone.... and furious!

When I was schooling all of a sudden some of my friends stopped talking to me. To see this one person had been spreading rumours saying that I told her. I was so angry. But can you imagine, i kept quiet and got away from her. I never even try to speak to those other friends as well. Some time back they realized the mistake and were very sorry.
