How greed can affect friendships on Stake

Featured Comment

Hi everyone, today I would like to discuss about friendship and whether now days it only revolves around money or whether there is true friendship in the Stake community. Over the recent months, I have personally gone through a lot of recent incidents that show the obvious money issues where I had thought I'd created a friendship or so to say - form of bond. I always find that because of Stake being a Casino, this is a place where people take their money to play. But do you sometimes feel that the only reason someone is talking to you is because they want to build that form of friendship just to abuse you further on in the future?

  • Do you have any real friends in the Stake community that deserve a "real" friendship title and if so who and why?
  • Do you feel that over playing Stake ruins real life friendships and relationships or does everyone have their time frame very strict?

I find that I can play Stake a lot as of since I've joined and I have always had arguments with my own partner for being on the internet for the entire day, so I am going to be reflecting on this and to try and get better at arranging my time here. I also feel this would be a great discussion to find out who actually plays Stake too much and whether you all could do with a bit of time management to prioritise real life?

Thanks everyone, I look forward to seeing what everyone else has got to say regarding friendships and time management here :)

Actually yes, I have a couple of good friends on stake, like Kdub, @ThugStream, @Shinjo, @Micro, @singpays @bmg  and others

I established a very good relationship with them and I'm really proud to know them, and no it doesnt revolve necessarily on money BUT on trust.

Stake doesn't affect my real life much. And yea, i found few real friends here, and our friendship wasn't affected by money related things. Real friends, which I can call to talk, whenever I need that :) Which knows things about me, only closest ones knows. Which I will visit one day for real :)

Dark as per the scenario in every casino upto 2% may be good friends those who are beyond the monetary relationship

its the nature all are think about their win and losses and some of them are sharing their profit with among them 

but still its so much fun and enjoying ,still there so many good friends

Dark my brother. This is such a deep topic. And it hurts me to say that most people on Stake are only here for the money and not for friendships :/

I myself have been shut down several times when I try to make friendship with others. I am told to "drop the act" or straight up "Shut the fuck up fake shit" and it does hurt. I can see where you're coming from.

I am sorry if I have ever made you feel like you don't matter (I genuinely cannot recall anything I did, but if there is, please do tell me - here or PM, anywhere, but please do tell me) but you are one of my true friends here. Both of us suffer from the same disability and so I have a bond with you that I do not have with others. I am always here for you brother. I Love you. Please know that you mean a lot to me.

I have reduced being super nice because people always told me to stfu and if that's what they really want, I'll give it to them. So if I haven't been as kind as earlier I am sorry :/

I have in fact made a few true friends here on Stake. Blxn, elyte0nes, neich, you, DviouS. All of you guys make conversation with me and that happens very rarely to me so I cannot express how grateful and appreciative I am of you guys.

I didn't create a friendship with you because you have money. Hell, I didn't even know you had money till a week or so after we were good friends. I came to you only because you are a good guy and of a great personality. All of us have our flaws and people will constantly remind us of them but we've gotta make sure to try and improve, or sometimes ignore those people!

Yes, most of the times people only message me for "halp" and so I ignore them but I have made friends here.

As for the time, yes. I do spend wayyyy to much time here but I don't really have anybody in real life to complain about it hahah. I take care of my health, but I do spend most of my time online because weirdly enough, this is where I find my comfort.

I have made some real friends here, people who I know I can message at anytime, and they will get back to me. I wouldn't say it always revolves around money. Most of my friends on Stake are born out of plain conversation, not tips in any regard :)

I definitely met some people on here who can be considered good connections, maybe even friends. But stake doesnt even affect a part of my real life relationships. I differentiate between that strictly. I dont insolve any of my friends with my stake situations! Their is real life and then stake life. 2 different things.

If it revolves around money, they you can't really call friendship.. more like acquaintances.. or to be more blunt, the fake friends. Even the one's you've gotten to know due to the fact that they too have experienced the wrath of the ones who only befriends you when you've hit big... they too turn into the same thing they don't like.. hypocrites..

I have some good friends on stake , until recently , when a certain someone decided to flood me tips , then demand I talk to him or he will find out where I live ? Yes that was creepy , i like to think of myself as a friendly person to approach, I’m open to conversation with anyone regardless of there background and gender , I think it’s fair to same I’m not a greedy player , if I have , I share , if I don’t have I don’t play , it’s simple really , when it comes to spending too much time on stake , I think I’m doing okay , I work outside of stake , so I don’t spend 24 hours on here, but I have made friends that I keep in contact with outside of stake , just for general conversation, ❤️

I have made a lot of good friends while on Stake.   I don’t expect much from meeting someone on a gambling website and have been very pleased to find some have become actual friends.   @david88888 and @mistake I keep in touch with almost daily via other messengers besides the one at stake !!!   I love when I first enter the room for the day how many fabulous people greet me.

aww my kicky boo your so sweet hun.  You are a very good friend and I'm proud to know u as well.  

To all of the noobs or people that don't know us that well there are a group of us that are here in chst or just play here often and have been friends for a while.  I consider some of them my family. And as kicky said our friendships aren't all about money (don't get me wrong money is a nice thing to have lol) but its based on trust and love .

I don't even have any friends in real life that deserve a 'real' friendship title - so to speak. Which is why I am hanging out online as that helps to soothe the real-world pains hahahaha. 

Over-playing Stake ruins all relationships man as it's so difficult for a non-player to understand/be able to hang as it's extremely time consuming. 

If it does go down the road, the opinion + companionship of a physical partner will progressively become more important and your capacity for unreal, superficial communites should decline to the point where the idea of 'real friends' is way more than just a conversation-exchange online without having met in person - also known as the human touch

Well said, I personally have definitely spent way too much time on Stake/PD, more than I should've, and I'm starting to think I have an addiction after all lol. However, I think that's because all my friends are either away in vacation (seriously no one's staying here it's too cold brrrrrrr) or too busy working and saving for Christmas. I think I'd log off Stake right away if I had irl plans 😛 If your partner is actually arguing with you over the time spent here I'd seriously consider cutting back a little. I'd seriously consider my irl friends/family more important than anyone here, sorry it's the internet everyone.

As to the topic of whether friendships revolve around money... I'd say literally 80% or more of them, including in real life, do involve money in some way. Maybe it's because you have a place they can temporarily stay at, maybe it's a loan, a dinner, or a job promotion opportunity. Face it, in the modern world money = power = what is never enough for literally everyone around us. That being said, there are of course some true friends who aren't after those things but those are like needles in a haystack. I think the difference between irl friends and Stake friends is some irl friends will ask for $20 or more which is actually understandable due to irl circumstances, whereas some Stake "friends" will literally ask for 5 cents, which is kind of sad. I have a system which works kind of well on here. It's copied from "fool me once, fool me twice, etc". Basically someone I know asks me once (not strangers, obviously) I politely refuse. Second time I outright refuse, and third time I will probably never talk to em again.

I don’t loan people money, irl, or online. I refuse to let money strain a relationship, because it isn’t worth it. And if someone needs money to the point that they are asking me, with the rare exception of some weird scenario where they would have a large amount of money in the near future, repaying would probably be not easy for them, and it would get put off and cause stress for them from not repaying, and money is not worth the headache like that, to me. So, if I have money and someone asks, I give it to them and tell them not to worry about repaying. 

That said, obviously, that’s not how it works online. I have the same policy when I deal with anyone when I/we play, never loans, no repays. 

But sharks, obviously, are different. Obviously, this is how they make money. And that’s great. But what happens irl when a relationship is strained because of money? The debtor typically stops calling or coming over. Not because they don’t want to repay, but because they can’t. I won’t have a friend feel bad to the point they will avoid being around because of money. 

To answer your question David, real friendships and relationships are real and genuine, when someone owes you money or not. 

Scammers are scammers, and not a friend. 

How someone acts when they are indebted to you can not be and is not a fair gauge of their true feeling, love, or loyalty to you. Money makes  people crazy, or at the very least different, depending on circumstance. Take money out of the picture, the person that is there, that is who you are dealing with. And if there is no money, and you don’t see them, then you know they aren’t your friend. 

... was that the question? Lol.

love this topic... in Stake some people do develop friendship in time.. if you guys tip each other for what ever reason that's wonderful.. unless you guys see or know one and the other in real life then greed should never take in affect..online is not greed but jealousy..keep that in mind.. the difference in casinos online and in real life.. in real life you don't tip players but dealers and waitresses..online you tip because of generosity or loan.. if its a loan.. irl you hunt that mofo..online you can only nag..just watch out who you tip and loan to.. i tip never loan.. i dont expect a tip back but a loan i would.. we play in casinos for different reasons.. but some people forget there is no free money..crypto or cash in casinos.. if there is better read the fine print! and never take kindness for weakness...

Yeah! We both share the same sentiments badgee luv. I have always prioritise friendship over money.. as we all know that true friendship is priceless. Im sure all of us have been thru ups and downs in life to be able to differentiate fakers and sincere friends online. I do not regard those fakers as friends tho, more like an acquaintance whom i will only greet hi and bye in the chatroom. So far, all those whom i regards as friends, possess great personalities and a sense of morality. Luv them to the max! To name a few like @badger @Lillyflow@wry @Darko 😘

Eh, this is an intresting topic. Ive been questioning these so called friends nowadays. Im only confident on a few people that their friendship with me are real, as theyve been there for me, not only in game, but in personal matters aswell. Others are more like aquintances is how i see it.

This is an interesting topic because something happens to people when they play, it is hard to see for me - at the moment- since I am utterly and totally busted with all kinds of friends that can't be reached.  Surely, if I was out there tipping as usual, they would all be available. 

I do have a few truly good friends who have proven their loyalty in the darkest hours.  @Furlicious @Ivanyoung80 @badger @bmg @77kdub @KinAniK oh it wont let me tag anymore for some reason. There are more, but you get the point. These are people that I can say I have been on the outskirts of gambling and they have in one way or another helped me out of a crisis or just seemed to have my back when it really mattered. Wish I could tage Leo, Waldo, Milky, Wry, Ravenyvolle, Eminx3 and even Robbie ( wtf is your forum name Robbie? ) Any day I can succumb to the dumb-fuckery of the dice and become a total beast.  I wish It weren't so, but alas, I get the fever from time to time.
