    What counts as flaking on friends/family/bf's/gf's? Is it when you cancel at the last minute like an hour beforehand for a small event or the night before for a big one? Or does it include saying you won't be able to come even if it's a good few days before the event? Or even when a person doesn't show up for a planned event?

    that could mean literally anything. I mean in the context of young people making plans, not contracts and agreements

    You tried to use my name :unimpressed:

    Can't say my family's big enough to know much about this. As far as friends go, it's only happened with people who generally are forgetful/blah anyway, so it's not something I think about much anyway.
