At all times, a true friend can be your best bud! Your counselor. Money lender. Chef. Technician. Name it! And you surely are the most blessed person in the world..

Friends with Benefits



“ Tell me who your friends are and I will tell you who you are.”

This is a cliche that we are very much familiar with. Your Pal, Buddy, Berks, Best, Sis, Bro, etc. These are the people whom you hold mutual affection with. If you don’t have any person you can consider a FRIEND, well ,that would be a big problem. Friends can be your knight in shining armor, your walking 24/7 bank account, your warm blooded handkerchief.

Like any other relationships, Friendship applies the law of reciprocity. It’s a give and take, win-win contract between two parties. No one here who had friends ever experienced the “magic of friendship” spectacle where you are the sole recipient of goodness and graces from these great buddies.

Here is a list of some of my friends whom I took advantage of:

THE TECHIE

Lucky for me I have this friend who is obsessed of hacking computers and mobile software and programs. I am now enjoying unlimited access to the internet for free, plus free for troubleshooting jobs, repairs, and any problem you can think of related to your latest gadgets. Guys, it’s for FREE.

THE MONEY-LENDER

With 0% interest, you can have the cash you need in just the split of a second. You really need to have a friend like this who will serve as your guardian angel in times of financial constraints. Hassle-free and, a sweet smile from you is enough to pay the lending charges. EASY.

THE COUNSELOR

If you are an emotionally unstable person, you can have a friend like mine who is constantly there to offer personality development through one-on-one sessions, and again, with no money involved. Aside from social media, it is more beneficial in my part because there’s always a virtuous response to every question I have in mind. He has all the bright ideas on how to make things positive.. AWESOME.

THE COOK

I eat voraciously. Thus, I have created an intimate bond to this friend of mine who can make my stomach a monstrous food machine. Name all the dishes you crave for and he will serve it right away. My taste buds freak out every time I put something he prepared into my mouth. It’s like you have your own private chef like what elite people have. SLURP.

THE PERSONAL ASSISTANT

I don’t know if I am just “the guy who has it all” having this friend who always obeys whatever you request from him. I know I am too much. However, I couldn't afford to lose him. He is such a big help for me especially that I am a listless person. LOL.



THESE are just a few collection of close friends whom I really treasure. They are my lifelines. Each of them creates a support system in my life which makes me the MOST BLESSED PERSON ALIVE! Now, “ Tell me who your friends are and I will tell you if you hit the JACKPOT!”

Well, that is called using a friend in my eyes, although I would help the friend who approaches me I would never do that to them without cutting my pride for the rest of my life taking money etc. from them.
I have learnt this the hard way after helping certain friends whom I valued and cherished in my life and got backstabbed and taken to court for doing it when I asked them to just be the one to listen to my story just as I did with theirs. It happened in February.

With regard to bringing money into a friendship, well I have been there too. While I never have asked back money from people to whom I have lent funds to, I do keep a record of the same and find ways to balance it out in the future in terms of goodwill there are other friends who come up and give two hours of notice and expect you to pay upfront just because they are in trouble and when you refuse start with a barrage of abuses and maligning till they get their money back. I faced the latter and caught them in their own words and this time endorsed it in writing till I knew they accepted what they had told me. Turned out they had someone who was playing that part in order to sponge me off.

Hard facts, friends are great, keep money and excessive pampering out of it, they always cause a lot of trouble, unless you know they are people whom you can trust your life with to hide and get away from the harsh realities of life. Never came across them except for four of them out of which two of them are dead and gone one is in another part of the world and the other is God who just knows when I am in need and gives me everything that I ask for at the right time.

I am sorry, my experience taught me this and its over thirty years of the same, I couldn't be wrong each and every time, I probably may have been to naive to call them friends as one took the husband and walked away with him too, the other took the house by telling the world I was divorced while still being married.

To me Friends with Benefits is like what the movie portrays, no strings attached sex which suddenly turns into love and they find out that there are strings attached after all, its called emotion which always overrides logic until you become heartless and cut-throat.
I told all three of them keep the change and walked away as I couldn't take the nonsense and emotional breakdown.

Honest opinion, get a wife you will have all of the above but be wise in the choice.... Those were my skills till logic took over and emotions only play apart when I am on stage or writing.

That is not my point in the article. I just want to share that friends are people whom you can count on for whatever problem you have may it be about money, health, or just simple concerns... Not really just merely using them without regard to sincerity of friendship.
