  • The Situation: Your friend always chooses restaurants that are out of your price range.

    We all have that friend with extravagant taste—and a paycheck to support it. But what if you can't keep up with the fancy dinners and expensive outings? "Be a connoisseur of free events, so you can offer a few creative counter-suggestions," advises Rowley.

Or recommend a free event that's on par with her interests, like a gallery opening or free concert in the park. If it's a really good friend, then just be honest: Tell her you can't afford to pay top price for cocktails this week and suggest a less pricey bar. And let her know that she can choose a fancier pick at a later date when you're not having cash-flow issues.
