Im not sure if this is the done thing nowadays? Met this guy and after a month he asked me to loan him £1500. I said no but it was the way he asked, like it was no big thing?

You dodged s bullet

Seriously? No, this isn't a thing. I hope you laughed in his face. I knew a guy once who claimed if you asked every woman you met for sex, it was worth your while if one in a hundred said yes. I guess this is the same kind of thing.

Nope, not normal.

And very unattractive.

I've come across this very recently. In 4 months he has asked me for money 4 times. He even asked me if I had a good credit score!!!

Very dodgy. Did he say what he wanted it for?

messydesk Fri 02-Sep-16 04:33:05

No he didnt and I didnt ask as didnt want him to think I was considering giving it to him.

Seems very odd to me. No financial stability & no sense of pride. What a tit

I think its called entitlement and there's a lot of it around these days. Some men seem to think women are there purely for their convenience and I can't tell you the number of women I personally know who are keeping whole families, including the husband/partner on their salaries alone.
And its not just young women either. I'm in my fifties and I know at least three colleagues at work, of a similar age to me, who are carrying whole families on a single wage; some of it genuine, most of it not as their partners are basically entitled, aggressive, lazy buggers. So, it comes as no surprise that this bloke asked you for money. Hope you told him to piss off!

MessyDesk - no this is not now a thing at all - never was and never will be. Run for the hills would be my advice!

Similar situation years ago, knew him only a month, asked to lend £150. Only I lent it and he never paid it back.

I think it was a test to see how gullible I was. Found out that he owed all his friends money.

just scammers, no different from those that say in one breath they love you and in the next say, btw you owe me £20!!

Very weird. If you'd lent him that money he would never have repaid you.
As an aside I think it's very cheeky to ask friends to loan you money - it puts the friend in a difficult position. If you want a loan go to a bank!

Some women would do it. So to some men it's worth it to keep asking.

I dated a guy about 7 years ago who asked me for £120 to tax his car when i had only known him about 5 weeks.

Another guy who i had dated for much longer asked me if he could use my excellent credit rating and get a tv on the weekly payment programme for him as his credit rating was shit.

Both were very shocked when i refused!
