This saying that a friend in need is a friend indeed is a phrase that has a meaning to us in real life.If you randomly ask people who a friend is to them,they will definitely have different answers.Some will say a friend is someone who enjoys their company as the dine and wine together even if they are not getting anything from them.Others will say a friend is one who helps them financially or materially in case they encounter any problems.But all in all it depends on individuals on whom they think a friend is to them. But then your successes or failures is a great determinant of who remains to be your friend or who cease to be one.As you get saturated in your success,you will definitely have many friends some of who are just but pretenders.They will only pretend to be happy for you but if things take a new turn,they will be the first to gossip behind your back. So I think true friends will dine with you in success and still be there for you as you suffer with sorrow.

True because even in success,some friends will definitely borrow from and refuse to pay you back and in this way contribute to your downfall.

True friend is one who is there when you need them the most. I am lucky to have found some good ones in my life.

Really good friends can sometimes be hard to find but when you find them, they are your friends for life.

Its true that you cannot know who your real friends are and you can only know whether they mean something to you when you experience your problems and they ease your pain by being there for you,.

@waflay That's true. You always find out who your real friends are when you are in a crisis.

a true friend is hard to find. You will know if she's a true friend if during those hard times in your life she is still there for you.

Surely a true friend will always be there for you especially during hardships to ease things for you.

I had this one friend who was just around when in trouble, finally I said that I can't help so she made a loan with bank. Later I heard she is pulling sleeves to other people.

Some friends can really make you go through hell by being so unpredictable in the kind of moves that they are gonna make which may have adverse effects on you as a friend.

Oh yes, a true friend supports you when things go wrong and rejoices with you when things go well.

You will definitely know your true friends if you experience any problems because they will continue to hold your hand and support you in your suffering.

True. Often times the only way to know if a friend is genuine and sincere is through the way they respond to your problems and suffering.

True friends are there for you genuinely and not your friends just for convenience or just because they are gaining something from you.

I think that the word friend has been devalued a little since social media, people collect friends and friend people so that some have hundreds on their page. True friendship is precious, if you have even one true friend you are a very fortunate person indeed.
