Getting your money back from friends
On the one hand, lending money to your friends can feel like a no-brainer — it's someone you care about, someone you trust.

On the other hand, if someone goes wrong, more might be at stake than just not getting paid back. You could lose a friend.

What do you do when you keep having to remind a friend about the money they owe you? Have you ever just given up on getting it back, because you decided the inevitable fight wasn't worth it? Did it end that friendship, or is this person still in your life? What's your personal philosophy on friends and money?
