You honestly got mad at her because she asked to reschedule because she had the flu?

Do you feel that your friend was truly ill or do you feel this was an excuse to get out of going out with you? If she was truly ill, then you need to disregard what was said. When you are sick & feeling miserable, you may say things without thinking & a good friend would understand this and forgive quickly.

Sounds like you wanted a special night & were disappointed that it didn't happen. It's possible that this time together meant more to you as you might have been missing your friends more as you were the one away. They are likely caught up in their daily lives & don't see it as critical to get together as you might. I'm not saying they aren't good friends, just that they have had created a daily life without you in it since you are far away. However, it does sound like people bailing is a normal occurrence from your message. Again, maybe these events are more important to you than to others.

My kids are 25 to 32 and know that a commitment is kept regardless unless there is an emergency. However, they tell me that their friends blow them off at the last min for a better offer all the time. Seems that there is respect lacking in this age group.

I don't know about the particular age group - I see this type of behavior in young kids and older people.
