When I think about what makes someone a good friend, I
think about all the characteristics of my own friends. My
personal definition of a friend, is someone who is always
looking out for me, and will help me if Iím in trouble. A
friend has to be someone I trust and who trusts me in
return. Another important characteristic in a friend is
someone who I can talk to, and make me laugh.
One of the most important traits of a friend, is someone

can make me laugh. A perfect example of this is my friend
Bob. Some of the comments he would say would be so
outrageous; I couldnít help but laugh. One time I traveled
to Montreal with my friends, and the entire four-hour drive
I spent laughing. Bob an...
