The Experience Of Being Let Down By A Friend

By - - [ Misc ]

I had this friend, a guy precisely who i always hangout with. He was my friend right from senior secondary and luck brought us together to the same university.

We became roommate and we lived like brothers. Nobody will even know that we're not related. 

Everything i go out to buy something, I'll always buy for him. I use to spend on him as i did to myself. 

But one day as we're going for a school trip, i lost my money on the way but due to my roommate was with me, i didn't bother too much because i believe he'll buy something for me. So as we were going, i asked him to lend me some money which I'll give back once we return to buy something and eat because i was hungry. To my greatest surprise, he said that he didn't have any money with him. And later in the same bus, he bought something and was eating. I asked him to share but he said that its not enough for him.

What should i do?

My friend you should know not everyone you dine with is a friend. Some of these guys/girls are leeches, only there to suck you dry. Its a good thing you survived your trip and learnt from it as well, just be careful with such people and never depend on them. Take care of what's yours and help out when you can but don't take their problems to heart as though it were yours because if you find yourself in such situation, they're not one to look up to.

Stay away for your own good. Apparently he has been using you. There's a high probability that if you had money he would've made up a story so you'll buy things for him.

You have a good heart but this is a cruel world. Some people repay good with evil

This is not a friend but a foe, you should stay away from this dude at all cost he isn't your friend ooo. That's how enemy comes in form of friends he's only with you because of what he wants to gain from you and nothing else.

My friend...you should know that in this life you can have many friends but they will never have the same attutude with you and even like you said....you both attended secondary school and later see him.....he might have change

      But my own suggestion for you is that you should limit your kindness to him and discover how much he love you and whether he want good for you or not.....I can't advise you to leave him but you still need to change him

Human beings are funny, you need to know your friends well enough before you call them friends. And besides don't be surprised expect this from humans. I'll advise you step back a bit and start to observe him and then reduce some certain things you do just to see the kind of person he really is.

Humans can't be predicted and not all you call brother are your brothets, some guys are like that always being at the beneficiary side of friendship, keep doing what you're doing don't change because of anyone not even your roommate when you have money to buy him anything please do, you're a good person so don't change that

Actually you know the answer to that question. You are just scared to accept it. Trust me its best to let him go. He sees you as a naive person who'll do anything for his friend. Prove him wrong. Trust me on this it'll be one of the best decisions you've ever taken

Don't let the pain of betrayal get to you.Try to calm down for the mean time and afterwards you could get to talk to him about it to see if he changes.Good friends are hard to come by and we should be careful not to lose the ones we have in quest of a perfection.We all have faults too.

The real fact is, not everybody will be good to you as you are good to them. Some people are wicked like that. This was an eye opener to know the kind of person he really is, he has showed you his real self. Now you should know too well to stay away.

Almost close to my experience..the thing is not everyone will show you the amount of love you show them...its very obvious that human beings are selfish and find it hard doing good for a fellow unless there's a reward...from your post id say you don't have a friend...you have to leave him...because you can only know a true friend when it's time for sacrifice...

As close as you said you guys are and he couldn't share ordinary food?

He's obviously not a good friend, he doesn't love you as much as you love him

I'll advise you to give yourselves a little distance, it's obvious your friend is taking you for granted

Let him realize his fault through that distance

Most of the things you do for him, you should either stop them or minimize them. With that he'll know what he has been taking for granted

And if he still doesn't change? Move away from such friend please, it's not healthy
