Do you lend Money to your Friends ? Or prehaps just Family ? How do you ask for it back ? What would the circumstances have to be for you to say yes or no ? Or not ask for it back at all ? For me, if it is my Family, I just dont ask for it back, A good girlfriend asked me once, I told her yes, I could lend her the money, but I needed it back by a certain date, I ended up sending her an email and note in the mail reminding her of the loan.
