i'm not talking about small amount-- maybe a week salary and up

I would not let anyone borrow any money from me (except family members but with signed agreement) since there are banks for that

Money can turn a good relationship around pretty quickly..

Let a friend borrow a couple thousand and he paid me back within the year. Let a different friend borrow a little more than a couple thousand because he was going through some hard times and he's only been able to get $500 back to me even though it's been well over a year. I would do it again if I had to but I'd be lying if I said I didn't regret the decision a little bit.

I don't lend money, I just give it to you if I like you enough.

And if I can afford to obviously.

If I ever lend a friend or family member money, I do it with the expectation that I will never see that money again. That way, I'm never disappointed when I'm not paid back, and pleasantly surprised when I am.

A co worker yes
If we make more or less the same the yes, also I would have our manager oversee it so even if he can't pay it back by our agreed time my manager will just take the money out

No such thing as lending money. Either you give someone money or you say no. Even giving can strain the relationship in my opinion. Exception being as a donation for a medical condition where multiple people are giving.

I never lend money to my family, I give it away!

But with friends, only if I know them very well. I used to lend $100 every week to an old lady who worked with me, she lived alone and I thought of my grandma when she asked me for money. In the beginning she paid me back but in the end I just started to give it to her...I suck at asking for my money back

I never lend or give money to my family; mostly because I know that it'll be spent on lottery tickets or something that runs the risk of losing it all at once (gambling in some way or another).
I do lend money to coworkers and friends. I have a friend I've known for over twenty years that probably owes me around $30,000 or so if I really kept track of it. I don't care, in those situations I knew that I would never see the money again and didn't expect it back either way.

People rarely ask me to borrow money. I think the most I've let a friend borrow was around $500-$600. They paid me back later that year.

It really depends what for - and the kind of acquaintance. If they're good for it I do. There's a lot more that I won't lend money than I will, though.

I don't know about a co-worker, but if it's for a friend I wouldn't mind giving them money as long as it's something that I can afford to give out ^^, I also wouldn't ask for the money back if it's a friend.

Probably not.

Depends on who and why. I would never give money to a co-worker though.

I do not lend money anymore. I used to, but i'm been betrayed too many times to trust anyone with a loan anymore. The only way i'll ever give anyone a loan again to a non-family member, is if there was a court approved contract. Any other time, I just have to consider it a gift, with only a chance that it might be paid back.
