money and best friends

So I let my best friend barrow 70 bucks before the baby came. I had it all planned out then an unexpected bill came up and cut us short. She keeps saying she will pay me back but then comes up with an excuse for not having it.. lately she has been putting stuff on Facebook of her going put all the time. It's starting to bother me becAuse lately it seems she only talks to me when she needs something. How would u handle it? Would you ask for the money? I have asked many times very nicely and it doesn't even bother her that I'm suffering now

 call her up and say that you aren't trying to be rude and you loaned her the money awhile ago and you really need it back now because you owe a bill that you cant afford.

yes I would ask for it. Tell her now YOU are in need and you need it bad.

That's why they tell you not to loan money to friends.

I'd give up asking since you already have asked a lot.  Chalk it up to a painful lesson learned.

Sorry!

This is exactly why I don't loan money to anyone but family

I have talked to her and have told her I'm in a rough spot and I need it back but she ignores the fact when I say I'm in a rough spot

I've just learned to never lend a friend or someone close any amount of money that would affect your personal life if u didn't get it back.. So if I have an extra twenty bucks then I'm happy to help them out but if they ask for fifty and I know that I'm going to need it back with in a certain time then I say sorry I can't help you.
