Personality Idioms : A fair-weather friend


A "fair-weather friend" is someone who stands by you only when things are going well.


Examples:
1.  I asked Alice to help me with my homework, but she refused. I guess she's just a fair-weather friend.

2. Jean came to the party, but fled as soon as we asked him to help us tidy up the mess we'd done!
