What qualities do you look for in a friend ? Explain why you think these qualities are important
 
The day we learn to talk and socialize is the day we start making friends. As we grow up, we discover that there are many types of friends. Some are more of an acquaintance and a select few are confidantes. To me, the word `friend' is sacred. It means more than just a companion who goes for movies and have laughs over nothing with. A friend is someone I can turn to when I am down and will always stand by my side through thick and thin. What qualities do I look for in a friend?

Firstly, my friend should always be caring. This means taking an interest in my problems no matter how big or petty they are. A friend gives me encouragement even when everyone else is against me. Many people say they are friends, but most of them run away the minute I am not cheerful or funny. A real friend sticks by me no matter what mood or predicament I am in. After all, isn't friendship about accepting and liking people for who and what they are?

Apart from that, a friend should be honest. This quality is crucial to me, because honesty builds trust. An honest friend will not lie and I must be able to trust the person with my secrets. Apart from that, sometimes I need an honest opinion about myself or an issue. If a friend is honest, I can trust that his or her opinion is not biased. This is very important to me, because although the truth may hurt it will help me to improve. Only an honest friend will be able to do that.

Besides that, a friend must also be able to share the same humor with me. Humor plays an important role in making your day more lively and enjoyable. Friends who can joke and laugh over similar things make life so much more fun. As they say, laughter is the best medicine and brings much joy on dull days.

I welcome everyone as my friend. However, I look for certain qualities which would make him or her a meaningful friend and someone I can count on. Among them would be honesty, a warm heart and the
ability to share and participate in the same humor.
