It's ok when your girlfriend has stood you up many times, but don't let that be a habit. Or else she'll think that you're so tolerant and she'll overdo/abuse it.
Does this sentence sound ok in a conversation?
Thanks a lot
Your girlfriend has stood you up many times, but don't let it become be a habit or she'll think that you're too tolerant, and overdo it in the future.
not a teacher
I'd have problems with that.

Secondly, if she's done that, then it's already a habit.
Thirdly, you need to use "become".
Fourthly, if it's already a habit, she's already overdoing it.
You can't use "abuse it" here. "It" is defined for "overdo". "It" is "standing you up." It's not right to say that she's abusing standing you up. She might abuse your tolerance though.
All things considered, I'd rephrase it.
