You missed the point. I don't care if I'm being taken advantage of!

I give because I choose to. Notice...I don't loan...I give. If the person getting the gift wants to give it back...I tell them to help someone else someday.

You see, during some very difficult periods of my life...people gave me things that helped me sustain myself...when I otherwise would've died. I give because I want to...because I "owe" it.
