When someone leads you on with plans but then cancels last minute ; usually followed by some bullshit excuse
“He totally pulled a John last night... he said he was coming at 7:00 but at 6:50 he texted me saying his mom is making him take his dogs to the vet... he doesn’t have a dog”

“He’s totally pulling a John tonight... he said he has to watch his little sister so he can’t come!!”

The act of beeing concerned by one's own schedule without giving a shit about other people's time.
1. Here he goes pulling a john again, he just asked if we were ready to leave the restaurant when he was the only one done eating.

2. The dumb ass pulled a john again, he called a meeting at 6 a.m. because he wanted to leave early that day.

It is when you walk up to a electronic device with complete confidence although you have no idea what you are doing, and you mess everything thing up.
One is Pulling a John when one grabs a remote control and set the TV to scan channels when he wanted to change the volume.

Or when your wait an hour for something to buffer then once it does, you fast forward it till it buffers again.

When a guy is dating a girl and decides, after verdantly pursuing her for weeks, that he is no longer interested. Instead of being upfront and honest, he disappears without explanation. This makes interactions with the girl extremely awkward when they don't need to be. When the girl tries to find out what's going on by sending a thoughtful and honest text or email, the guy ignores this, making the girl feel rejected, hurt, and confused.

The reasons for abandoning the relationship are typically psychological in origin (i.e. mommy/daddy issues, fear of commitment/intimacy, etc).
"How are things going with Dan? You guys seem way into each other!" "Oh, I haven't heard from him in over a week. He dropped off the face of the earth. I guess he's pulling a John."
