List Rules Vote up the most telling signs that you may be taking more than you are giving in your relationships.

If you have a close knit group of friends then you’re well aware that one of you is a moocher, and if you don’t know which friend it is, then it’s highly likely that you are the mooching friend. If you’re not sure where you fall on the mooch scale, ask yourself these questions: Do I ever pay for drinks? When was the last time I bought a new piece of furniture? Am I a bad friend? Being a moocher in a friend group isn’t about who has less money, it’s about a person who takes advantage of their friends without having the wherewithal to say thank you or reciprocate the friendly gesture. As you read through these telling signs that someone is a freeloader, ask yourself: am I a mooch?

It’s completely normal to ask yourself, “Do my friends like me?” Depending on how old you are, you’ve lived with yourself for close to 30 years so it makes sense that you’re exhausted with being around yourself – but that doesn’t mean that your friends hate you. However, if you’re the kind of person who takes and takes without ever giving back then your friends are probably thinking of kicking you out of the group, or at the very least they’re going to stop inviting you to their more exciting get-togethers. For many people, being a good friend is an important life goal - you may be sabotaging yourself without even realizing it. Vote on the most telling signs that you may be taking more than you are giving in your relationships.
