RE: Who needs friends?
I would be quite hesitant to use the term 'friend' to describe such a person. Wow ... if I had 'friends' like that I would need a heavy duty supply of anti-depressants to survive the relationship. People who treat others like this are better deleted from ye olde contact list IMO. You most definitely deserve better - most absolutely assuredly deserve better. Sometimes if we have been treated badly in the past, we think that it is okay for others to treat us like this in the present. It's not okay. Perhaps also, when you communicate with this individual, make it clear that you need a firm commitment - either yes or no, not maybe. Even if you have to make it sound like your calendar is busy and you are squeezing them in, they may decide to show up on time. If late ... you've left the building. Their turn to be inconvenienced. They might well learn to show up and do what they've promised, or they'll just wander off into the sunset. I'm not so sure if the latter would be much of a loss (but I do not know all the dynamics of the relationship so my comments may be entirely inappropriate to the situation, in which case I apologize).
