    I'm feeling that people need to be more reliable. If you make plans, follow through with them or give an explanation why u cant or dont want to instead of just leaving the other person hanging wondering whats going on without ever getting back to them! You make a promise then keep your word. Even if you made plans with someone you just met, follow through with them- just because theyre "not as important" to you doesnt mean they dont still matter. If you blow off every "unimportant" person, youre not allowing them a chance and it prevents what could be a potential friendship from growing. If you blow off your friends, they will eventually draw away from you.

    Also, people need to make more of an effort to be reachable. I understand we all get busy and there are times where we have too much to do to worry about every message/call we get, but you should get back soon after you're not busy instead of just ignoring him/her and never getting back to them. Think of others and not just yourself. If you're unreliable, you most likely won't have real friends. No one wants to try to reach out to you if you make yourself impossible to reach or blow them off often. You have to be real to have any real connections.

    I don't think I'm being unreasonable. I'm mostly dependable; I always follow through with plans or if I can't I let them know what the story is, and I usually get back to someone even if it's days after I got the text(because I was too busy at the time). People need to put in more effort and stop being lazy and having someone else do all the work to keep in touch. It's very frustrating for the person on the other end. I'm not saying that you need to be friends with everyone, but don't lead on those who you don't want anything to do with.

    I hope I'm not alone on this, but what do you guys think?

    I got to the part about people being reliable and then realized you reliably did not edit.

    I like to see is this way,
    Would you blow off a person so easily if it fell under work/professional duties?

    And the obvious answer is no, because everyone has a sense of responsibility when it comes to work.

    Theres also the "do unto others" thing, but I think I made my point.
