A bud of mine and I became good friends in college because he helped me through a really sad time. Now, however, he blows me off frequently at the last minute, always disrespects my wishes when it comes to hanging out, and seems to have more fun with new friends he's made ... who happen to socialize on a slightly higher level than his old friends ever could. What do I do? -- Pat in Purchase
My poor poppet -- if there is one thing I hate, loathe, and detest in this world, it is flaky people. And you, my friend, have found one.
He's only ever going to cause trouble from this point on -- and he's not worth it.
This acquaintance of yours (trust me, he's no true friend) shows no respect for you, your wishes, or your time. He's only ever going to cause trouble from this point on -- and he's not worth it.
Cut him loose and hang with friends who treat you well.
