I think an important quaility in a friend is kindness. Kindness is an important quaility because if a friend isn't nice, why are you there friend in the first place? Another quaility I look for in a friend is honesty. If your friend lies to you, the could be lying about being your friend. Last but not least is loyalty. If your friend is loyal to you, they will alwys be there for you in your time of need. There are many more good qualities, but these are the three I always look for.
