    Giving $ with no expectation of return - slight misfire

    Did you expect the money to return? you said no. Are you in need of cash yourself? Is it worth losibg a friend over (if she has bitchy tendancies)?

      I would just pretend no money discussions occurred yet, since you’re unclear of her intentions. Proceed with normal conversation. If she really is serious about wanting to pay you back she’ll bring it up again and clarify her intentions.

        ^ done and organised a post Christmas catch up as normal. I don’t expect or need the money back. I gave it and asked her never to bring it up or speak of it.

            People are weird. I would just let it ride. Don't bring it up and pretend she didn't either. She probably really does want to pay you back she just isn't able to. And most likely, saying she is going to makes her feel better about taking it. But the fact that she hasn't just came out and gave you money, means she really isn't able to.

            I would let it ride and know that dealing with this repercussion is just what happens dealing with people. You are a good person and don't let this keep you from helping other people. Just chalk it up to the unusual nature of humans, insecurities, social dynamics, and mental issues.

              Meh, it's just money. I never lend money out expecting to get paid back.
