that's a hard one and i think you will get lots of posts. i think, i think now...............i'd prefer to be the best friend. i love doing things for my friends, sometimes small things, sometimes big things. i think the one thing i did for a friend that i enjoy telling is a story about her daughter. the girl sings, but won't do it in public. my friend has been asking her and asking her to sing the national anthem for our home football games. both of our husbands are coaches. i talked to the girl myself and convinced her to do it without her parents knowing. i wrote out cards for both of them telling them how important they are to my husband and me. he had the one for the husband and was to give it right before she sang. since i had a prior commitment, i had another girlfiend give it to mom. it was such a huge surprise for them to hear her sing that. my husband and dad stood there on the field holding hands crying. mom tried to be the tough guy and not cry, but they both were so moved by it. it was the biggest surprise i've ever done for someone and i missed it!!!so........i like being the best friend. i can do things and it makes me feel good about myself.

I'd prefer to /be/ a best friend, actually. It would be lovely to know that someone considers me as a 'bestest best' friend. I don't have extraordinary social skills, and it's rare for me to find good friends that I can consult with.

I don't think you can ask a question like that. No one can answer that they prefer to have a best friend and not be a best friend. If you act like a jerk then you wont have a best friend. So my point is, that if you yourself is not a "best friend" you wont have "a best friend"... Wow did that make any sense at all!? :-s
