A friend who only associates with you when they have nothing better to do. Someone who may only stick around in exciting situations but when times are somewhat boring, leave your side.
A fair weather friend would act like they want to hang out but never invite you to do anything and if you invite them to do something they will only do it if they cant find something better.
