What are friends? To make use of you or take advantage of you? Anyone experienced being backstabbed or betrayed by your friends before? Is it true that friends will betray each other because of money? Even a friendship of more than 10 years can be easily broken because of money? Money is important, yes, but it is worth to break up a friendship of more than 10 years just because of money? pls share your opinions.

friends are those people who can share anything,understand each other,be with each other at any time .friend is not a person who take advantage of us,but who converts our disadvantages to advantages and be with us through out our life.A friend is the one who lit the lamp of our heart and more over friendship is a blessing.no barriers are there for friendship.friends are many,but a true friend is unique,those friend will never go away from us at any situation.no momey or any other things can break such a friendship.so be friends.

Sigh, perhaps i have not found a true friend yet. Most of my friends seems to be making use of each other. They will call me when they need help but when after everythings is solved, i wont get a single call from them. I feel that they are taking advantage of our friendship, this is saddening but what can i do? life goes on~

True friend is more important than money. You can't buy friends everywhere. If she/he can betray you because of money then he/she is not a friend!

No it is not fair to break friendhsip because of money. Friendhsip has to be based on understanding the needs of each other rather than money. Ten years is too long a period to understand to leave friendhsip for. Rather it should be nourished to last longer.

evry one to all, you know frndship definition a frnd is in need and a frnf is in deed.When goods frnds never break their frndship ever and ever.But if misunderstands our frndship it will be broken for only a simple reason ie quarrels between them. frndship never sees the beauty but sees the beauty of heart. frndship is not a band which is tied on the wrist but is a bond between the two hearts. frndship asks for love and affection but never demands luxurious.

i thinks friend are there for you to use them. everyone takes the advantage of someone, there is nothing wrong with that. people be friends with you for some reason, this can be either they like to spend time with you or they shared so much with you or they think you're cool etc etc.. all of these are good reasons to be friends with someone. i think there is something wrong in case you don't use them or they don't use for something. and does money cause a friendship to collapse? not unless you are both running for the Big Brother or something ?!
