I feel my friend is taking advantage of me

I have a friend who loves to come over and play Fortnite on my Playstation 4. I didn't mind as I don't like to play video games and I got this as a present for my birthday. This was fine till I asked him to give me feedback on my online blog. I am trying to write stories and thought it would be great to get feedback from close friends and family. My friend enthusiastically agreed to give me feedback, but has not provided any feedback so far. He told me that he will do it as soon as he finds the time, but still comes over to play Fortnite.


I am starting to resent this and feel like asking him not to come to play. Is this okay? I have enough feedback from others and the console will lay idle and collect dust. Should I just let him come over and play and stop needling him for feedback? Please advise.

Hi, I think true frindship is based on honesty and mutual respect. Why don't you try talking to him about your feelings. This way you two can decide where your friendship is headed.

Thanks for answering. I will talk to him. Wouldn't a friend make time to help? Especially, when he has time to play Fortnite?

I'm not quite sure if you'd want to hear this, but I believe you should confront him about it. I think that you should ask him why he has not provided any feedback on your blog even though he has promised to do so, but I don't think you should go so far as to threaten to refuse to let him play Fortnite anymore.

Did you let your friend know that this is bothering you? It's quite possible that he does not know how important the blog is to you.


Do not take any steps that prematurely end your friendship. However, if your friend does not come through even after this discussion, it's quite possible that you will have reevaluate your relationship with him. All friendships should be reciprocal in terms of the importance one gives to the other.
