Dear Amy: My girlfriend and I have been together for a few years. We’ve had our share of ups and downs. We live a few blocks from each other. Recently, we discussed our tight money situation. A few days after that conversation, she asked me for a $1,000 loan, which she would pay back over the next couple of months.

In the first letter I'm guessing that the girlfriend really had no intention of paying the money back and that's why she was upset with the paperwork part. This comment comes from experience that I've had in this area. If I'm ever asked to lend money to anyone, my response is that I'm not in the banking business.

Sounds like the girlfriend has an "entitlement" problem.
