Friends who disappoint you

How do you handle it when you have friends who constantly make you a low priority in their lives and constantly disappoint you? Do you:

1) Cut them out of your life and become lonely and friendless especially if you are the type who takes awhile to make new friends?
2) Or make new friends but continue to keep them in your life and continue to get disappointed by them?

Option 3: Reduce your expectations so that your current friends don't disappoint you. Work on making new friends by joining book clubs or hobby clubs, cooking classes, etc. There are even internet-based friend matching sites.

There you go... If you have low or no expectations then you will have no disappointments.

Yes I agree. You won't get hurt if you have no expectations.
