I Hate Broken Promises

Don't make a promise you KNOW you can't keep! 1,793 People

    It is much better to promise nothing

    and try and give everything than promise everything and give nothing at all.

    A woman with trust issues is a woman

    that heard "I promise, I'll never hurt you" too many times with actions that told otherwise.

    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.

    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?

    Broken Promises

     I hear your best intentions, to the point of getting bored, when you make such promises, it leaves your game unscored. It’s better not to mention it, then give me a surprise, when I heard your excuses, they sounded more like lies. If you have...

    The worst thing i think i hate the most is

    when people say there going to do some thing and they don't do double that if they promise it like you can never believe or trust any thing they say again after that

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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.
