Well, that's the story of my life. everyone where I live is rich as he'll. And when you let them borrow money when you KNOW they dont have any with them, they don't pay you back b/c they "can't afford it". Which is so not true.

Her profile says she's female, and the pink outline around her pic should make it obvious. Sure, he/she could be lying, but if he/she were, they would just as easily lie in the comments.

to clear it up...i am female...i just dress and tend to make it where i look more masculine, what isn't in this picture however is the dead giveaway that i am a female-my very noticeable boobs.

They're probably on the app and can't go the profile or see any pink outline. Hopefully that will come to the app soon. At least now we can see when comments have been moderated.

well yeah fyl she totally overreacted and it seems she's lying -- Italy is pretty much rubbing your face in that fact. but perhaps she's like behind on rent or something maybe 'cause of her trip?

She definitely over-reacted even if OP is severely underplaying her role in the argument. But she may not be lying. I know right before I go on holiday and right after I get back are when I have the least amount of money to spare.

Well yeah ImaginaryFoe but the point is you don't go on expensive trips when you owe money, first you pay your debts, then you go on a trip with what you have left, or you stay home and make sure you don't get in the situation where you'll need to borrow money again so you can go on your next holiday with no worries. I hate people that have money problems like debts and stuff and then they decide they should go on holiday in another country. If you really want a holiday and you know you don't have the money just postpone or go somewhere cheaper and neared to your home.

I agree with the principle of what you're saying, good_times, but it is possible that the friend started paying for the trip a year ago or something and became shorter with her money over time but couldn't get her money back. I'm not defending her actions or justifying the stupidity of a splurge while bumming off of others but there could be extenuating circumstances. Still, it is just £20 and if you owe it to someone, skip a couple of meals if that's what it takes to pay it back. Downgrade your hotel room for one night. It's not worth your dignity.
