Is It Ever Okay to Take Advantage of Someone's Feelings for You?

Well, seeing the title written out like that, I know the answer is NO. It’s horrible. Not nice. But....

Oh, it is sooo tempting. A long-time (15+ years) friend has offered me hotel points for a vacation. (At one time, we tried the dating thing, and it just didn’t work. We are so much better as friends. He wants us to try the dating thing again as he has ‘feelings’ for me and ‘always has.’ I shut that down.) No strings, no him going with me, just an offer because he knows I live to travel. I know I have to turn it down. I can’t play into that. Ugh. Back away Satan.

Are there ANY instances you can think of when this would be acceptable? Humor me.
