    Do you stay friends with someone that says they will "pencil you in" for a possible dinner date?

    They will pencil you in and see what else comes up for the day.  In other words, you not important enough to have that time set aside for you and the friend.

    No, I MAY stay aquaintances with them but not likely. If they do not think I am important to them, they are not worth my time. I would rather pick up the dog mess in the yard.

    I think if someone said that I would definitely be penciling them out of my life totally. How rude and ill mannered!

    I think I would remain an acquaintance with the person but certainly not "friends."  I wouldn't bother responding to their penciled in date if they do intend to keep it.  Life is too short and time is so precious so I would save it for people I truly enjoy and who have time for my friendship.

    I think it depends on the nature of the relationship I have with that friend and why I want a dinner date with them. I can accept that people have busy lives. I can also accept that all my friends aren't my "bestest buddies" but that doesn't mean I don't want to spend time with them occasionally.
