When I moved into my new apartment, I had a couple of help from some of my buff guy friends who can lift things with ease, unlike me and my small frame. Anyway, after my friend Gary helped me move some furniture from my parents' house to my place and we chatted with my new roommates for a bit, we went to my brand new room to set things up.
He closed my door and asked me when no one else was around, "What are you going to do for me?" lifting his right eyebrow, with a sly look on his face. I was thinking, "What the hell... can't help a friend move without turning it into a sexual favor?"
I've paid for his meals before and have even driven him around. It feels like when it's his turn to return the "favor" (in a non-sexual way) he thinks it's a burden or something. I've also given him gas money or paid for his meals when he drove me around, when my car broke down. I'm not one that tolerates people calling me when they only need a favor, but ignore me when I need help with something. Aren't real friends supposed to be there for each other in life changing moments?
I had just told him how I hated the new guys I met who helped me move, then tried to get sexual favors out of me... as though I was some lowly prostitute. Now, here he is, doing the same thing. Needless to say, I had no plans of hanging out with him for a while.
After some time had passed, I tried to call him to hang out and pretend like he wasn't a douche, but he hung up on me. I found this funny, since I'm really one of the few good friends he has left. He's anti-social and shuts himself out from everyone.
Has a friend ever tried to proposition you for a sexual favor for assisting you in a non-sexual way? Did it ruin the friendship or were you able to laugh it off as a joke and still hang out as platonic friends?
