Very few things in life are as cringe-y as when a friend, colleague, acquaintance, or stranger asks you for money.
This guide will help you turn them down.
- I’m not in a position to help you, I’m sorry.
- I can’t help you.
- I care very much for you, but I don’t feel comfortable lending you money.
- I’m sorry, I have a personal boundary/principle of not mixing money and friends.
- ONE-TIME LOAN MESSAGE: If I lend you money, you have to promise to never ask me for money again.
