Lets say for example that every week you hang out with your friends every week at the same place, like bowling or food etc. How do you feel about them offering to pay for you? Do you let them pay this time, but then pay for them next week? Or insist on paying your part of the bill regardless? Or ask if they'll be able to cover next week before you decide to hang out again?

I hate feeling like I owe anyone something, in that situation I probably would insist on paying, unless it would be easier to just cover it next week (like none of us have cash), but I always remember who owes who, even years later. My friend owed me a beer for 7 years before he finally paid me back

EDIT:
I guess something else to think about, if somebody owed you a lot of money and refused to pay you back and started avoiding you because of it would you stay friends with them? My friend had one of his friends hit his car when he was drunk and like 17 years old and instead of going to the police or getting the insurance companies involved (which would have royally screwed him as he was joining the military) he repaired his car with his own money which cost about $3,000, because his friend promised to pay him back, but 6 years later he still hasn't made any effort to repay him in the slightest, and they are no longer friends because of it.

In all honesty, me and my friends have all thrown out the "owing" each other. It just didn't even matter, we're all friends who one time or another have paid for each other. I think of it as money that's no longer mine if I spend on someone else. Its gone, no need to bring back a debt. I used my OWN money, that was MY choice. So there's no point in where the money went, i did it out of the kindness of my heart.

Of course that's only around my close friends. To random associates, that's a different story.

It doesn't faze me when they owe money. Unless, it was a serious matter then, yes I'd be worried, and will ruthlessly crush them with my boot.

I hate the feeling of owing someone because I feel like when that person is around me they are waiting for me to pay them back, well at least that is how I feel when someone owes me. I don't really hound my friends and family to pay me back though because I don't mind giving money to them. I also like the feeling of doing something and then getting a reward for it instead of just beggin for money. But that's just me

yeah I hate the feeling of owing somebody something.

which is ironic because I owe the government $38,000 in student loans

Is someone wants to borrow money, I always write it on a piece of paper so there isn't any problems later. If I borrow money, I feel bad but I ALWAYS pay it back.

It depends, if someone does something good for me, I often feel obligated to eventually pay them back. And, when I do pay them back, I feel pride in knowing that I stuck to it.

Always forget to have cash.... but they never come after me so it's all good σ(^_^;)

I despise owing people money. Most of my friends and family are petty and quick and ready to throw in your face that you owe them if you borrowed from them. I don't do it unless I absolutely have to and I try to pay it back asap because I don't like it hanging over me. I don't mind so much if someone owes me money because really I never give past $5 for a friend and maybe more for family but they never ask.
