Yes - this is exactly it. The banks make it their business to lend out money - so if the banks won't lend someone money, they you shouldn't either.

Of course someone borrowing $5 for lunch because they didn't bring cash or some small amount that you don't really care gets paid back is different. I wouldn't think a true friend would put you on the spot like that for money.

Hell no. She hasn't even been in contact with you this whole time. You teach people how to treat you by what you tollerate.
Your return phone call should sound like this" I haven't heard from you in a while. Unfortunately I will not be able to loan you ANY money as it would be highly inappropriate."

Are you prepared to loose $2k because it has been lifes experiences which have taught me that people who often need help are irresponsible. They waste their own money, put priorities in the wrong place, and they will waste your money as well.

If you loan her money you are telling her that you will allow her to disrespect you by playing you.

No> No> Hell No
