Hello, about five years ago I made a new acquaintance, we used to go to the cinema, meals, an occasional coffee and chat. At the time she lived with her daughter and SIL, but recently moved into the house next door to them. She knows I live alone, and have been alone the whole of lockdown. In the past she has let me down at the last minute and I've been left sitting alone waiting quite regularly - punctures, wrong day, felt sick, etc. My daughter said she is just a 'flaky' friend and not to be upset about it. When she became a grandmother a few years ago she had to take on responsibility for the baby from the very beginning, and I accepted she was too busy to socialise, so we just emailed occasionally. The last time I saw her was in January 2020 when I paid for her to go to the cinema as my treat. The last email I received from her was in mid November, I sent her a Christmas card as usual, I didn't receive one from her. She also 'forgets' my birthday.
She's just emailed again for the first time since November, apparently she yet again had problems with her home technology. Would you continue with this acquaintance?
