I don’t mind doing favors for my friends, but I have one friend that seems to take advantage of me. She wants me to babysit all the time, introduce her to other friends, or find out the gossip that I know. She never seems to want to do things with me, and only calls me when she wants something. I know friendship isn’t always equal but this seems out of balance. I feel like she’s using me.
From what you describe it certainly seems like your friend might be taking advantage of you, but before you write off the friendship completely, you owe it to yourself to find out.
