I don't lend my friends some money, I would rather buy them foods. If they need the money so badly, I would lend them some. I don't usually expect them to pay it back to me because the amount is not really big. However, when I think I'm also in pinch I also borrow some money to them and they would immediately lend me.

I feel this would be an appropriate reaction.

They need to pay for them to eat donuts. They NEED to.

I take personal loans seriously. I don't let myself go for long without having paid it in full.

I'd even call up my utilities and inform them that I'm having some financial strain for the time being and will not be able to pay soon enough. They'll always be glad to help out. Of all the people you'd owe they're the nicest and most flexible.

Logic: companies that provide utilities just want the money and will negotiate a suitable and realistic price. They won't hassle you to pay more or even when you go to them needing an extra week they'll do it with a smile. They want to keep their customer and also going through a debt collecting agency means more money lost on their end. That's two hassles for them.

A person: 'Oh an emergency happened I know we agreed on this date but I need it now.' Or, 'No, no you said you'd pay me now,' or 'Can I get another fortnight?' 'You're kidding...?'

Lets not forget the dreaded meet up. You'd think to yourself you owe this guy money and it's likely your head will be down and you'd feel a little less cozy around them especially if they're a friend.

Never loan anything to a friend. They spend weeks worrying about paying you back, and the worry turns to frustration, and the frustration is directed at you and you alone. People's emotional reaction to a situation has nothing to do with their conscious reaction to it. Remember that.

Just don't lend her money again. If she asks you to, then bring up the fact that she never paid you back last time.

Whenever I borrowed money from a friend, paying them back was the no.1 priority. Things can just get awkward if you don't, and it's not fair on the person who gave you money in good faith.

Usually when my friends won't stop bothering me for money I lend them some, I don't really care about them paying me back since it's my personal choice to give them money.

In general, people do not like talking about money (e.g. there isn't a boss I know that feels happy about paying his employees, lol).

Just for fun, I'd start charging a daily interest and see how much it adds up to. Just for fun, you know.

I have noticed that the further along 1 gets in life friendship becomes cloaked in pragmatism. I have friends the same age as myself who will openly advise that if they ride with me anywhere the assumption is I had better be responsible enough to be adequately insured in the event of a calamity beyond everyone's control (car accidents). At first I was taken aback by this statement but upon reflecting it makes sense....kinda.

Part of the logic is if they should become incapacitated, incapable of working, cease fulfilling their financial obligations because of this accident that they didn't directly participate in then, by golly gee, someone needs to step up to the plate of shared responsibility and pay. There are some social situations where all of us go in our separate vehicles to attend a function rather than travel together and this is why. With my pragmatic friends this is how I "responsibly" maintain a cordial relationship. It seems strange but in today's litigious society it's become an accepted norm.

I rarely loan money any more. I've been screwed over too many times.
