By Less Friendship, More Cash - Canada - Vancouver
Today, I realized one of my best friends was only friends with me because I would take her shopping, spoil her regularly, and help her out financially. She moved to another province and only contacted me whenever she wanted money. After I refused a couple of times, she deleted me on Facebook. FML

Hopefully you learned this lesson before you spent too much on her. Think of it like this: Those who ask you for moneey the most are the ones who usually deserve (And appreciate) it the least. By continually giving handouts to someone, you start to make them feel entitled to them. Find someone who loves you for who you are, not what you can buy them.

Sorry you had to learn an unpleasant life lesson that way. At some point I think most of us have experienced that with friends or relatives. When we care about people we naturally want to help them if we can and there is a need. But then there are some who would abuse that and then have no respect for the giver. Best to find out now who is a real friend than to let it go on too long. You are a good person, there will be other friends in your life soon enough.

In the end, it's not good for the one who always lets others fix their problems either - They learn manipulation and dependence instead of useful life skills.
