Are we twins?? I’m in a very similar situation. Unfortunately, I don’t have any good advice. Just commiserating with you. Hope you hear from her soon!

Eh, I can imagine her side of this too: you’re trying to make complex plans, so she gives you a phone call, but you never call back and just send a text. Pick up the phone yourself before you start complaining about her.

Maybe she does want to cancel the plans, and wants to say it over the phone rather than via text. Maybe there’s some other serious issue going on in her life. Maybe her phone is just having issues with text messages at the moment. Whatever it is, you’re also a freaking adult—you can return a phone call.

I’m in the she flaked and doesn’t have the balls to tell you camp, too. I’d go ahead and make other plans. Is there someone else you would want to go with instead?

It’s inconsiderate but it may be something may be something has come up and she would rather talk on the phone rather than text. Or she could just be busy and the kind of person who does things last minute. 

I would pick up the phone and call or write one more text or email asking for her to call you by X time and date since you are running up against your own deadlines to make plans.

Been there done that. Still “friends” with the girl… but my expectations have lowered for her to not flake… or respond back. She seems to only contact me when she somewhat wants something. So.
