I Hate Broken Promises

Don't make a promise you KNOW you can't keep! 1,767 People

    I have a friend who asked a sophomore guy to

    her senior prom. She realized she just wants to go with friends. Should she go with him or cancel? If so what's the best way to tell him.

    I take my promises very seriously. I will do everything in my power to keep them. I just wish everyone else did.

    Don't tell me what you ARE going to do to/for me

    unless you really intend to do that. I can take promises that don't happen, but if the promise offer-er has no intention of following through then it's a waste.

    Don't Make a Promise If You Don't Intend On Keeping It.

    Promises mean the world to me.  When someone makes a promise, I expect them to keep it. I don't understand it...  Do people really have THAT much trouble keeping a promise?

    Time And Time Again

    It seems like every time someone uses the "P" word towards me it is a straight up lie. I can't count the times someone has promised me something and turned right around and broke the promise. Dishonesty is bad enough but when you let someone down like that it can be painful...

    I don't care how big

    or small it is. If you promised it, keep it. The fact that you break it makes me feel like I'm not worth it. Atleast if you can't fulfill it, tell me so that I don't keep waiting on nothing. It hurts when you break your promises. It kills me when you do it over and over again...

    as i always say, i am not against the

    relationship between young and older. but there should be balance. young should be at least close to maturity. under 20s are kids. they dont know any shhhhhhhit but killing time and playing around. jumping around from tree to tree. cant fit in one place.

    This feeling for me can vary from an itch in my

    brain to a grand betrayal that makes me hide in bed for days. I'm clear about this. Life gets in the way and that's fine. But if it was never your intention to keep your promise, do a thing, make something happen, THEN DONT SAY YOU WILL in the first place!!!!

    Promises and empty words are the worst. Only responsible people are able to keep their word. When we break promises a person who trusted us feels really disappointed . This situation can even destroy our frendship / relationship. WE SHOULD THINK BEFORE WE PROMISE .. !!! Broken...

    This is exactly why I don't use the word'

    "promise" carelessly. It hurts beyond repair when a promise is broken. You not only gave me your word, you made a promise on that word. Tread cautiously when using the term. I've broken a few, it is never pleasant.

    heart, and then you broke that promise, even after you knew what my ex put me through, you still broke it, your promise, my heart, my trust. I just want it back.

    I don't believe in promises anymore. It is better not to believe and expect at all rather than being disappointed at the end. Sorry but I just don't believe in promises at all.
