Top Definition
Loser with whom you're friendly only because it is the charitable thing to do. Not a real friend. Secretly wish you weren't. In contrast to you, more brutal and decisive people don't have them on principle. Can be a significant risk for embarassment; the relationship is often secretive. Often, a Mercy Friend will be a blackbody.
