Fair-weather friends

Fair-weather friends

A fair weather friend is only a friend when circumstances are pleasant or profitable. At the first sign of trouble, these capricious, disloyal friends will drop their relationship with you like a red hot brick.

A fair weather friend is one who is only around when they need you.

A fair weather friend is a one who is only nice to you when it's convenient. Someone who's rather wishy-washy. Someone who is a "backstabber." Someone who abandons you in certain situations.

A fair weather friend only sticks by you when things are going well.

A fair weather friend doesn't help in times of difficulty. Likely nautical in nature, referring to the fact that when weather is good nearly anyone can help on a ship.

A fair weather friend is someone who is a good friend when it's easy for them to be one and who stops being your friend when you are having problems.

A fair weather friend is one who pretends to be your friend when things are good, but leaves when things go astray, or things become not quite like they think they ought to be.

A fair weather friend is not a friend at all.

Fortunately WIZARD I've only ever had one of those, hope you are not having to comment on some one that you recently discovered to be so.
Life is your's to do with as you wish- do not let other's try to control it for you. Count Dusak- 1345.

My opinion for what it's worth all comes down to honesty, honesty with oneself and honest with one's friends........:cool:
Ps: remove the 'r' from friends what do you have left ?
