Girl I'm friends with needs $400 for rent. Thing is it all seems really fishy, she's engaged and 4 months preggo and I know there's no way she can afford to pay me back hence. To make matters worse she got her fiance fired from his job so they have NO money, I said I'll give her the money if she can find something I'd value at $600 upfront. Here's another catch, I live in cali and she moved to Bama last year so they can't work it off. What do you think she'll offer up for a trade. Pic very related
Why are you even getting involved?
She lives super far away from you, and she's engaged. What do you possibly have to gain from lending her money? It seems to me like you have nothing to gain and 400$ to lose
She asked me because she knows I work for a semiconductor company and I make alot of money l. I'm also ok with giving money to my friends who live next to me but I have them work it off.. such as clean my house etc, and when she was around we where decent friends.
We where good friends in highschool and we sorta stayed in touch after that. I don't really see her as a friend anymore because we don't talk really at all aside from the "how's life" every now and then
She can't think of a single thing to offer me yet is begging like crazy, I have nothing that I can think of to gain what-so-ever. At this point it's just curiosity so I'll leave the offer of trading for it... I wonder what she'll do. If she chooses to continue to beg and not trade I'll just ignore her
Is not feeling guilty for turning her down worth $400?
It's kind of weird that she can't offer you anything. Are you giving her the opportunity to leave you something as collateral, rather than a permanent exchange? Like, you hold onto her laptop until she gets the money to pay you back. Might widen her options.

Jesus fucking Christ this is why poor people need to be barred from having children. Next you'll know instead of fucking breast milk or formula she'll be giving the poor infant child pabst blue ribbon. Tell her to fuck off and pray she has a miscarriage.
>no I don't want sex
Then what DO you want? You clearly had something in mind when you made this post.
What can she offer you? Basically nothing. It's just as you say: they're too far away to barter, and their ability to pay is suspect at best. That leaves you with two options. You could give her the money, expecting nothing back. Or, you could say no. Anything else is hopelessly naive on your part, and you know this.
The choice is yours. I don't think anyone could reasonably hold it against you if you said no. You have nothing to lose by saying no, and $400 to lose by saying yes. That may be $400 you can't afford to lose.
But I feel that I have something to say. Doing good by someone in times of need, expecting nothing back, is some very powerful social mojo. It has a habit of coming back to you when you need it most, in ways you could not have known you'd ever need. If you can afford to give her the money, as an outright gift rather than a loan, then I advise you to do it. The good will you build up in the damndest of places has very real value.
I don't even give my best friends money. I'd say no.
Will I jump in a fight for a friend? He'll yes. Will I buy them things and help out where I can? Absolutely. But I'll never just give someone a loan.
seconding this, do not give the money to her if you expect it back. it will only cause contempt and anger in the future.
only give her the money if you have it to spare. it will definitely come back to you one day.

I do hope you're trolling. Otherwise you, sir, are a cunt.
