Whether it's splitting bills with a flatmate or asking a relative for a loan, we all need to talk about money from time to time. A few tips can help you speak with confidence.

2. Try to bring a solution to any problem

In the case of a loan, show you've thought about how and when you'll pay it back.

3. Choose your moment.

Plan ahead. Schedule time in your diary so you have plenty of time to talk through your options.


 

 

There's definitely a feeling in the air...

(If I haven't got the money for something, I don't buy it, so Lloyds advice is as useful as a chocolate ringfence)

If I thought it would be read by someone with any comprehension of the situation I'd reply back with something along the lines of "Why don't I just ask for a huge bailout at 0.5% interest?"
