Tony reads a magazine article about qualities girls like in a guy. He thinks he can impress girls by pretending to have all of these qualities. Have students make a list of what qualities they want in a friend. Have them explain why these qualities are important, giving examples. If loyalty is important to them, was there a time when one of their friends either did or didn’t show loyalty?

What qualities do they not want in a friend? What qualities drive them crazy?
