I don’t have a really close group of friends I spend all my time with. But that doesn’t mean I value my friends any less. I value my friends for their contribution to my life in each in their unique way. And even though we don’t see each other all the time I think about you often, send you good thoughts, and look forward to seeing you when it works out.
So when we make plans I put it in my calendar, look forward to it, and fit it into my schedule. Now I know you are very busy (as am I) and I know that most people are not as organized/anal as I am, but I do expect people to show up when planned and stick to the plans they make with me. I get frustrated when things go awry. What you should know - I get over it so quickly (who wants to live in anger?).
So, please, don’t make me wrong and go away because of this, as then I would not only miss out on our fun outing, but would also miss (out on) my friend!
