    ...a distant acquaintance/friend repeatedly flakes in online conversation, makes promises to tell you about certain things but fails to respond at all, yet when you remind them weeks and even months later of this they come back saying they have poor time management but really appreciate your conversation and even ask you to continue talking with them? One would think that if they wanted you to stop talking to them they wouldn't ignore you but then do all they could to redeem themselves of their breaks? Am I being used?

    One should stop referring to themselves as one,and also they should just not get too involved with the mentioned person too much.

    Why do you say that?

    Some people are on/off like that - I know I sometimes do it. I have friends who I value, enjoy meeting up with but sometimes just can't be bothered with the constant messaging. Then something will make me miss them, I'll start a conversation and apologise etc.
