    I am just curious to how different people handle other people who you thought would be there for you and or you could call a friend but they always seem to only be out for themselves how do yall handle those kind of situations?

    That's not a fickle person, that's just a selfish ass, a fickle person is irrational and unpredictable

    Oh Guitarguy,

    Be the kind of friend you want others to be. If they drop the ball, call them on it. If they drop it again, let them live their lives the way they want to and you go live yours the way you want to as well... without them.

    You won't change them. They won't change you. Millions of potential friends out there for someone who's a good friend himself.

    I call them out on it and then cut them loose.

    I had this one friend I would always do favors for. I would Listen to her problems,Be there for here when she needed someone.What did I get in return!? I got left at a bus stop 11:30 at night in the cold,In a bad area ,because she wanted to go clubing with a friend Instead.

    That's the exact same situation that I am in right now, I constantly go out of my way for these people and in return I am sitting alone in my dorm room once again, I am to the point of why even try and help people anymore, seems that most people "Up here in North Texas anyway" are only out for whatever they can get from others they have no concept of other peoples feelings and I honestly don't think they care its really kind of sad and pitiful in my opinion but what can you do..........

    Those sound like self-centered people. Get some distance so you can meet some that aren't.
