I hate having poor friends.

I love my friends but it sucks being friends with them sometimes. I don't have many but the few that I do all live pay check to pay check. They have no spending cash. I'm not some rich bitch either but I can afford 20 bucks to get dinner or see a movie every once in a while.

I know it's not their fault and I wouldn't ever say something to them about it but it does get frustrating. I try to pay for things if I can but it's not often that I can afford to treat everyone. 

So yepp, there's my confession that will probably get bashed.

poor is a state of mind- broke is about the bank account.

Can you find one friend that can afford those things and just share it with that person. Keep the others for just hanging out with so no one feels awkward. I know how it is when you have some money and they have nothing. Not comfortable.

I don't keep friends who can't pull 20 bucks together for a movie night, especially if things were planned ahead of time. I live paycheck to paycheck myself, but if I want to do something bad enough, I find a way to make it happen or I don't do it.

Nope, they are all broke usually. On a rare occasion one will be able to see a movie on 5 dollar tuesday but that's about it.

Well it's not like they tell me they will then skip out on the last minute. They say no from the get go because they can't afford it. I'm not going to stop being friends with them because they can't afford the movies.
