Friend in need is a friend indeed.

How apt do you think this saying is? What if your best friend is caught in a problem and cannot come to your rescue during your period of trial. Would you brand him/her with a "not a true friend" tag?

No and never i cannot him/her brand with the tag "Not true friend" There is a saying a Friend in Need is a Friend indeed Now think in reverse direction on what circumstances he couldn't help u out that is ur responsibility of a true friend so tagging in such way is not good. Also whenever we start a relation we should never expect return from the relation that is true relation So think both in each other direction and conclude Ofcourse our main part in the role is to whom we call a best friend and how we are choosing and trusting them as best or good friend There lies the major role if your good/best/true friend is not helpful to you then ur judging of the person as your true/best/good friend is wrong so flaw lies with us also

Thinking of the reverse as you stated will lead us to think in much deeper terms regarding the relationship of friendship. Thank you for responding.

definately not! Actually it happens all the time with me and my best friend. I have tried to contact her because of a crisis I was going through and what do I get the answering machine! Having had a heart attack recently I am not able to drive again and I called my friend up to see if she could bring me to the post office in the states (I live in Canada but right by the boreder and often get things shipped to the states for me) Anyway, she can't because she is working (2nd job) or going here or doing that etc... She is still my best friend and always will be. She is only human after all and humans will always let you down sometime!

Of course not! That is not the only bases of what a true friend is, how if your friend is in the situation that you where, during the time that you need her/his help badly. We all have our own problems and we cannot say that we will be with our friends all the time during trial in her/his life, there are times that even we want to circumstances do not allow as to do so, cause sometimes there are much more important things to attend to first, than to attend to the needs of our friends, but it doesn't mean that you are not a true friend just because you aren't able to help her/him during the times that she/he need your help the most. It's so hard to explain! there are really inevitable things happen to us sometimes during the times that some of our friend needs our help the most.

I would not be upset if a friend wasn't available in a time of need, because I know how difficult live can be and that everyone is juggling a lot of problems and worries in their heads. But I am just guessing, as I am a loner and really don't maintain friendships.

Yeah, maybe our friend has some work which is of prime importance to him. Proper understanding is necessary to maintain our friendship. Thank you for responding.
