  • It happens. You pick yourself up and dust yourself off and begin again.

  • Yep. I've felt like shit. No.

  • Yes, she used me up and threw me away after being friends for 13 years. Very depressing for a long time. No longer friends.

  • Friends haven't done that after I helped them. Family has.

  • I've had friends shit on me plenty when I was a lot younger and extremely naive. I've learned from those mistakes, big time.

  • Yes, many times. I tend to be pretty forgiving--or stupid--so generally, I've remained friends with most people who decided to bite the hand that fed them. The closest friend who did it, I couldn't stay in contact with her because she'd done something that had a big potential to harm my family and I couldn't allow that.

  • That is why I do not have friends. They have always done me wrong in the past.

  • I've never had anyone turn on me but I've had those who did not act like you would think a grateful friend would afterwards. But I've never done anything huge for anyone (like large sums of money, etc.) so it wasn't too big of a loss.

  • Yes. My BFF since 5th grade was having money problems, so I gave her $1,000 to help her out. Stupid me.

  • Many times; until I learned how to teach them to help themselves.
