Are you an 'all-weather' friend or a 'fair-weather' friend?
Definition of a fair-weather friend:
Usually a good friend to begin with that eventually takes advantage of a true friend and does not maintain the SAME loyalty and respect. Without an explanation why, a fair weather friend may abandon a friendship altogether for superficial reasons or changes in moral beliefs without a care for nurturing fair dicussion.The exception is when that person needs something, they know they can still count on an "all weather friend" .
Have you ever felt abandoned by someone you considered a true friend when the going got tough?
When does a fair-weather friend cease to be considered a friend?
