How do you know if a friend is using you?
How do you separate users and real friends?
The problem is, there are few who meet the definition of the real friend. Because real friendship falls right up there with a level of love that is as powerful as the bond of a family.
BorrowersWhat if your friend is a borrower? Real friends are highly unlikely to approach you for short term loans. Often they're ashamed to admit there is a problem, let alone ask for money willingly. However, if your "friend" always borrows money from you, and if he is not so willing to repay you, then he might be a user. If your friend borrows money but never pays it back, then he is a user.
