    I truly believe it's because how good they feel after making a promise and the good reactions they get from people to whom they made the promise to. What is mind-boogling to me is why these Feel-Good-Don't Care about the Consequences-People aren't being called upon or held responsible for their misconduct. This sounds like a wonderful Voice Chat Topic doesn't it?

    well...i guess it depends on the situation because if you say "i gotta tell you something but promise not to tell" theyll say they promise before hand and once they know itll probably be inching them to tell someone (because there bastards and dont know when to keepthere mouth closed) or its probably so BIG that they fell they should because they dont know how to help you with your situation and/or is worried about you (but will probably ask someone hypothetically and not tell them directly). but when people ask me something like that i just simply say "depends" and then its thier choice to tell me or not

    Sometimes, people are unable to keep a promise.
    If its a close friend or family member, its usually
    better to give them the benefit of the doubt. It is
    easy to over commit when you make a promise.

    it's annoying when they do though, just recently happened to me, it wasn't even a big promise but still i got mad!!! it was like a pinky promise too, so i told him i would break his pinkies if he told someone something and then he decided to give this guy a note and just held out his pinkies for me to break! i'm like what the heck you jerk???

    People are stupid. They just tell everyone what everyone wants so hear and don't worry about repercussions.

    I think it's wrong to make a promise you can't keep. You can reassure people without making promises that you know you won't be able to keep.

    i think they either forget about the promise, lie to you to make you feel better, or just don't do it on purpose.

    They say what you want to hear because they dont want to hurt your feelings. Then they dont follow through because they didnt want to do it in the first place.

    Since you said people it means politicians aren't included. That must be because if their lips are moving, they are lying. With real people I think most of the time they just don't think about what they are saying. They mean what they say when it comes out but when the time comes to deliver they realize they just can't do it. If it's me I probably forgot what I said. Sorry.

    A momentary appeasement for the person being promised. Maybe just to shut them up. Particularly sleazy when a person offers an unsolicited promise, then breaks it.

    They want you to leave them alone about whatever they are promising...or whatever they are asking..They just try to avoid conflict or dealing with it...It's a bunch of BS

    I think promises are made with the best of intentions... but life is not a sure thing and from one day to the next no one can guarantee anything... Take the promises as an act of love and don't have any expectations beyond that... love them for the effort and the thought...
