And people call me an edgy asshole, damn son you're beginning to make look downright kindly in comparison. Did some mall Santa kill your dog when you were five or something mate.

Things would be better if people knew how to ask nicely.

I feel used when I see someone look at me then turn away without smiling

Have you ever felt as if you were being used?

Yes

What was it like for you?

Horrible if it is by someone you consider a friend.

I was the nerd in high school and I didn't mind when people I rarely talk to wanted my help. There was this guy who was always looking for me to help him with homework and I didn't care that much.

But I was "friends" with these girls (I really thought were my friends until I opened my eyes ). I noticed that they only wanted to talk with me when they had a problem or needed to write an essay. When I invited them to the movies or just to go out they said they were busy so I understood that they didn't really want my company in normal days, they only wanted my company when they were having problems and needed to write an essay because I ended up writing the essays for them >_>

Also, family. I have some cousins and aunts and even my sister who never speak with me until they need something. They start all nice behaving as if they care about my life even though we haven't spoken in months and then they drop the bomb "can I borrow money?"

Yep. And truth be told I've probably been guilty of using somebody once or twice myself. It's easy to say "Don't let yourself get used" but I think it probably happens to everyone at one time or another. There may even be situations where you know you're getting used but you just go with it for various reasons.

I probably have been, but not in a big way that stands out. I'm pretty distant with most people so I don't get asked for much.

I don't know, honestly. I probably have but at least not in an obvious and unfair sense. We all use each other from time to time, I just think that we like to rely on each other, as long as it's not manipulative or one-sided.

I have a lot of limits, though, so my friends usually know how much they can ask of me before I tell them to fuck off.
