When it comes to the higher echelon of business or government, friends are chosen carefully. I can see how women have friendships differ than those of men.
I prefer to be on my own so i would take the money.
I don’t need friends, I need money.
tough one…when my parents go and I’m all alone I would take friends…but for 20 more years…i get to take the money
money can sure help though
Money. Money talks.
I would also like balance BUT I know the world often doesn’t work that way. For me my life would be a lot less stressful if I had money but if I didn’t have other people to rely on, I don’t know that I’d be able to keep a full time job to keep the money flowing anyways.
I’d like to think of it as a sliding scale. Money on one side and friends on the other. My perfect scale would lean more towards money not because I’m particularly greedy but rather because I am not a social person. I’m okay with having just one friend, in fact I prefer it that way, regardless of whether or not I have enough money to cover my bills and save. That just becomes an added plus.
If my scale leaned more towards friends I would be incredibly anxious all the time as I wouldn’t have the money to pay for the things I need AND my social anxiety would be through the roof.
So my scale would look kind of like this
im thinking a roommate would allow me both…a friend and money. that would be enough for me…I just got to find someone that needs a cheap room and doesn’t mind my company
I’d definitely take the money. So called 'friends" have always let me down all of my life. They can’t be counted upon. You can count upon money absolutely.
I’ve never met a dollar I didn’t like
I’d like a balance, an inbetween. But if I HAVE to choose, I’d choose friends.
True friends don’t let you starve.
I don’t have a lot of friends, but my social needs are met. And the friends I do have, I have a close bond with.
I don’t ever want to go back to feeling like there’s no one to turn to, no one to share the good and bad with, no safety net.
I would rather starve than be all on my own again.
