I lent my mate a lot of money for his wedding and he has not paid me back

DEAR DEIDRE: I LENT two thousand pounds to my best friend to help pay for his wedding after he lost his job.

That was two years ago but I’ve only had £250 back.

He and his wife have two children now and don’t see paying me back as a priority.

I’m a single guy of 34. My best friend is 33.

He’s now got a better job than before but they say they can’t manage on just his wage. I cope perfectly well running my home on my low salary.

I want to insist on the money, but I don’t even know how to start a conversation about it because I think our friendship may be over if I do.

DEIDRE SAYS: Your friend is being unfair even if he is living on a budget.

Explain to him that you don’t want this money issue to become the elephant in the room but you need the cash.

Suggest drawing up a repayment plan so that you both know where you are and arrange for him to pay you a manageable sum each month, even if that is a small amount.

If it does begin to spoil your friendship, then you’ll have to accept that this money is lost.
