Have you ever made plans with an old friend, only to secretly wish that they’d cancel and you wouldn’t have to leave the house?

Well, if you’ve ever held onto hope that your plans would fall through, then you’re in good company. According to a new study of 2,000 millennials conducted by Evite, young people are notoriously flaky. Of the people surveyed, 45% saw nothing wrong with being flaky — which explains why the average respondent bailed on almost half of their scheduled events.

Unsurprisingly, with such low attendance rates, 29% of young adults have earned the reputation of being a flake. And millennials do their part to keep up this reputation: More than half of those polled admitted to accepting an invitation to something when they knew they wouldn’t actually go.

Common excuses millennials use for flaking include being tired, not feeling well, and simply just forgetting about the event altogether. Twenty percent even admitted to flaking because they didn’t want to be around other people!

Unfortunately for flakes, 67% of people said that they would stop inviting a person out if they missed about four of their planned get-togethers.

Check out the surprising results of the survey below, and make sure to SHARE this article with your friends with a flaky reputation.
