Our expert says:
I find this sort of behaviour much more common here in SA than anywhere else I've lived --- people make grand promises and never make any attempt to keep them. I know exactly how you feel. They make the offer because it makes them feel good, and don't follow through because apparently not keeping their promises doesn't make them feel anything at all ! I don't think this is about you being too needy, but about people being too unreliable. In the last few years when I have been through terribl;e ordeals, a handful of friends have actually been helpful, but others have played the usual game.
I consider such ofers of help as like those emails I keep getting ( Mweb's anti-spam system is useless ) telling me I've won millions of dollars --- not even worth paying attention to
