You don't know if you both just grew into different people or if you were just too dumb to realize what a bad guy he really was back in the day, but either way, you don't like him any more. Sure, maybe once a year you'll get in touch with each other, but it's usually just a brief exchange, and it almost always reinforces your opinions of the dude's shittiness.
He's a cool guy in his own right, but if you ever invite him out with some of your other friends, he just doesn't click. He's got his own thing goin' on. He'll want to change the plans, go somewhere else, do something different. If you're gonna hang out with this guy, it's best if its just a one-on-one type of thing.
Everyone needs their space from time to time, but this friend won't give it to you. They want you all to themselves. It's seriously unhealthy. It's definitely a personality flaw, and a real shame of one too, because without it, they'd actually be a pretty cool friend.
This friend is always there, but never really contributes anything. Super middle of the pack friend. Not super fun, but not super boring. He's not as much a shitty friend as he is an interchangeable friend, really. What it comes down to, is you'll never look back at the time you shared with him and think, "Wow, you know what, I should give him a call."
Sometimes he seems like a decent human being, other times, he's your worst nightmare. You want to like him but you've been burned so many times before. He's just so hard to trust. Just when you think you'll give him a second chance, he uses you and leaves a bad taste in your mouth.
From the outside, you'd think you would actually be BEST friends; you get along great, have undeniable chemistry, have shared many great memories together. He's so cool. The only problem is, the dude is a complete flake. What usually happens, is you'll be up all night waiting and waiting for him to come out, really hoping he does. I mean, you tell your friends about how great he is and how they'll see. But then he no-shows. Again. You'll tell yourself it's probably for the better, that he wasn't good for you anyway, but deep down you miss him and will DESPERATELY CLING to the hope he'll come out next time.
