    Have you ever been let down by a friend?

    During a very hard time I really found out who my real friends were. Some were not the one's I thought the most of but they surprised me

    Yes, I have loaned money to friends and learned that lesson, not to lend friends money. Also I have lost friends just over time and moving to different states, lost friends when I changed jobs, there are many ways to loose friends and it bites to loose them.

    But like Dwayne and others have said, the ones you lost weren't really true friends. We only have a few of those it we're lucky.
    yes. when i had my stroke my so called friends dropped me like a hot potato

    That sucks a big one carmaxable...goodness knows that's when you really need friends....they showed their true colors and you're probably better off not having friends like that...after all, who likes enemies..I hope you are doing well thes days...take care of yourself!

    WHEN I WAS YOUNG I MADE A REMARK TO MY DAD ABOUT HOW MANY FRIENDS I HAD.HE REPLYED IF YOU HAVE A HANDFULL OF FRIENDS IN A LIFE TIME YOU ARE LUCKY HE WAS RIGHT THERE IS A BIG DIFF.IN BUDDIES PALS CHUMS. AND FRIENDS. THE ONE THING IS CERTAIN PEOPLE DISAPOINT YOU THATS JUST WHAT THEY DO.

    My "best friend" borrowed $7500 from us and now we never hear from her. No money either that she "promised" to pay back.

    First rule of friend ship "Never lend money you are not prepared to lose" Same goes for family.

    ole hipster

    Amen to that one Peoplelover!

    ive been done like that Lupe!!!my advice to you is ,learn from it.id never lend anyone money again.funny how short peoples memories can be...

    I guess I never had a good friend, my family and any of what I thought were friends always have let me down and treated me badly guess that's why I am more of a loner now......

    I hope you consider me a friend Darci.

    ole hipster

    Ole hipster I think you make too many rash assumptions about others but I for one am glad Spaceghost is my friend. I am lucky to have him for a friend.

    There are different grades of friends. Someone you may know or someone you work with and your life long friends. You can expect the first two types to let you down and occassionally the latter. The thing to ask yourself are you a good enough friend to forgive your friends for letting you down. If the answer is yes. Then they are your true friends. If it's no. Then...............

    yes I have, it hurts, they're not supposed to do that...

    ole hipster


    sorry clarity...I accidentally voted you down after realizing that I had voted you up...I'll make it up to you...again..I'm so sorry!
    ole hipster

    Hey, I found a question of yours, voted that up to make up for the down....wish there was a way to eliminated this....some early dementia in my case! (:
    yes while hicking we come upon a cliff my friend let my down first then i threw him back up the rope... alright it was a dumb made up story.. except for the part about hicking..
    If friends are people you do things for and expect no return then I have many.

    If friends are people who do things for me and expect no return then I have a few.

    But, not really let down, only disappointed.

    A good friend does not judge you. A good friend will tell you the truth even if it my hurt. A good friend will be with you till the end. I hope I can live up to these things for my friends

    Golly yes, who hasn't been let down by a friend at some point in their lives...can think of a few...won't get into the particular details...some I still think about and some I don't...life trudges on!
    friendindeed

    ole hipster....did you make a mistake and unvote me? easy done

    No I have never been let down by a friend, acqaintences yes, people I worked with yes but friends never. What was all the other blathering about this question, so many go off on a tangent from what is asked. Surprised our Holyer than thou people didn`t hop in with the J word being a true friend that never lets you down.
