I have noticed this pattern seems to be especially common in S.A. People promise to do something, which encourages you not to do it yourself and to wait for them, and then they don't do it. So you're worse off.
Anyhow, if this is a recurrent pattern from him, remember that there's no good reason to expect it to get better rather than worse if the relationship continues. Have you had any chance to do the same to him, and see how he reacts when the tables are turned ?
I like KIm's idea of making the promises specific -""That would be marvellous, but surely you wouldn't have the time to do it ? Which day this week would you be able to start on it ? "
