Hey...I'm new to this board, but I'm so confused about something and was wanting some opinions. I have a childhood friend that I still email with from time to time. We were always close while growing up. However, he will email me and initiate plans, but never follows through.

First of all, welcome to the board!

When was the last time you saw your friend? Do you know much about his current situation (married, kids, girlfriend, etc.)? I wonder if there's something going on that's preventing him from following through. Usually, if someone initiates a meet-up, they follow through. Maybe you could invite him to the next group get together you have?

I think, if it was my friend, the next time he asks to set something up, I would ask if he's sure since the last few times have fallen through and it's kind of a pain to have to switch your plans around.
