Qualities of Friends:
Q: What do you think are the most important qualities for friends to have?
真诚 sincerity loyalty
帮助, 原谅 helpful forgiving
尊重彼此隐私: respect privacy
一直坚守在朋友左右: available, be there
I think a good friend is always someone who trusts you and can be trusted. And this person should show sincerity in this friendship and be always loyal to you.
Life is full of ups and downs, and when you're down, he's always there to give you a hand. Sometimes we get emotional and unreasonable under pressure, and to be a good friend, we need to learn to understand this and forgive the other person is he or she yells at you or takes out the aggressive feeling on you.（拿你撒气）
But most importantly, good friends always respect the privacy of each other. It’s true that you're closer to me than others. But still, you’re you, I'm me. There's a famous Chinese saying, “Familiarity breeds contempt.” （熟来生厌）
So keeping a reasonable distance is imperative to a healthy friendship. (144 words)
