> more friends if your rich, no one wants to be ur friend if ur poor-commentPage 2 of 2    (1, 2)
i was talking and arguing with this classmate and he said this-- if ur rich and lets say you win the lottery one day u will have more freinds and everyone wants to be your friend, even the friend you haven't seen in 20 years they will phone you and want to be your friend.

but if your poor and broke one day and you loose all your money- businesss went down or you got laid off-be it your job and industry--- no one wants to be ur freinds, even when you want to borrow money -no one wants to give it to you or be your freinds, they won;t lend you money, and you won;t get nothing.and they won;t want to have anything to do with you

Sadly no words were ever truer! Isn 't it more fun to go places and do things that cost money (most of the time) than it is to sit home every night?
Sad part is that those people are not really friends. True friends take you for richer or poorer. Keep the ones you trust around you and just use the rest as they would do you.

There have been times in business that money has been really tight; I realized that then was when I had little or no support. When things were flying high I had so many around me it didn't matter.

It happens with dating too. I dated one girl and we were just starting but things were a little tight money wise. I saw her going away from me. When I started to get back up again financially, all of a sudden she was calling every day telling me how much she missed me.

When you look up during your darkest times, those are the people you trust.

first of all those are NOT friends... those are users and losers... if you heard that someone you knew twenty years ago just won the lottery, would you call them and try to get some money from them? Heck no... geeeze what a creepy thing to even consider. People would not beg money off of a hard working man or woman, but would beg from a lottery winner thinking that it is "free" money to them and that they may not mind a bit. but I doubt it...

Never be a borrower or a lender be, it ruins friendships and relationships, just dont do it, it is not worth it. I loaned a sister some money and she avoided me until it was all paid off, I will not do that again she can get a loan from a bank. I am not falling for that trap every again.

best of luck

Well, you look like a fairly well-to-do lady, can I be your friend?


BTW, I need to borrow some money!

Sadly enough, people forget that money is only a tool, they think it's the final objective of life.

It's the dead-on accurate truth. It's been my experience that very often a friend is just someone who hasn't stabbed you in the back yet.
