This Week - Novel Advice
I've been going out with my girlfriend six months. She is an alcoholic and possibly bulimic. The problem is she seems to constantly lie, which is probably due to the alcohol. However, the biggest problem is when we arrange to do something, she manages to ruin it by "oversleeping" or forgetting we made the arrangement.
I ring her and leave messages, but she will wait two hours before calling back. Before you ask, she works from home and is not busy. I think in a relationship with your significant other, you answer the phone. I am trying to work out if she is messing me around or actually loves me as she says.

The third item on the list, broadened to include both sexes, would make the quote perfect.
