    How to say no not-quite-close-enough friend who asks to borrow your lipstick: 1. Celebrity makeup artist and sworn germaphobe Mally Roncal says: "I learned my makeup-sharing lesson in high school, when my friend used someone else's mascara and ended up with pinkeye. If they ask me for a favor, or to hang out, or go somewhere, I almost always say yes, unless I have a legitimate excuse. I'll say yes even if I don't want to hang out, simply because I want to always be there for my friends. But sometimes you have to say no to your friends, no .

    Yet, your friends think of you regularly and Facebook invitations end up coming out of nowhere. As long as you don’t have neurasthenia (in which case you’d need to consult a specialist), perhaps out of pure comfort you’d like to, just this once, say no. For example, if your friend asks to borrow your car, and you’re uncomfortable with the idea, you can either be direct and say “no,” or you can use any of the following, assertive yet.

    Three apps to simplify your social life. TimeTree: A shared calendar stores all your friends’ dates for easier organisation. Goodbudget: Keep track of spending, plan your budget and share it with mates. Time To Enjoy: Event suggestions tailored to you, making for less ‘What shall we do?’ chat. Jo Hoare’s book . How To Keep And Maintain Friendships There’s a clear difference between knowing how to make friends and knowing how to keep and maintain friendships for a long time. If you have trouble keeping friends around, or if you’re tired of losing many friends over the years, then there are a few lessons I learned and want to share with you here.
