it seems like GA and batman team up a lot. And if they needed help it seems like they would call one and other. I think they are pretty good friends

Yes, they are friends.

They rub sticks together.

Friends enough for Batman not to slap him silly for stealing his schtick in Arrow. (lol that even made me laugh.)

Batman doesn't have any friends....

I guess they're friends in the sense of superhero colleagues - I don't know about friends on a personal level though. I'm guessing the GA-Batman relationship isn't as close as say the pre-52 Superman-Batman or Hal Jordan-Green Arrow relationship.

I don't think they've ever risen to anything more than just allies. They often do have clashing ideals, though. In The New 52, Batman probably finds him to be a nuisance.

Pre 52 they were Friendly rivals most of the time.

I don't read new 52 Green Arrow but hes appeared in other comics and it seems like everyone treats him like that annoying weird kid that just wants to play with the other older kids.

More or less. They were close allies in Kingdom Come, though.

I think it's more of a mutual respect kind of thing personally.

I would say colleagues whose ideologies line up well more often than not. It's hard to say just who is on Batman's internal list of friends. Not many people, to be sure, and I don't think Green Arrow stands amongst them. Hell, if Jim Gordon isn't always sure if he's Batman's friend or not, then I doubt Green Arrow gets even the slightest impression of warmth.

Even in The Dark Knight Returns, when they teamed up to take down Superman, it was a somewhat uneasy alliance. They didn't get together because they were pals, they got together because Ollie had a score to settle and Bruce understood that and believed he could make use of Arrow's skillset.

They're frenemies.
