Does a person need a best friend?

I was thinking to myself the other day as I heard the statistics that you have 4 good friends in your life or something like that, do I have that many? I sat down and thought whats classed as a 'good friend' and when I did that I realised I maybe at a push had one. Now im a girl and i know most girls cant do without their best friends. But im not a typical girl. I dont like to tell people how I feel and Im too proud when I got a problem to turn to them for help. And so far I have survived. I have friends sure but I never felt i needed them. If they have a problem they come to me we chat and I like it but if it doesnt happen i dont feel bereft. So it makes me wonder do you need a best friend to support you and is it strange to not have any at all?

ya e1 i think the same....do v really need best friends....i personally feel that they complicate our problems much more rather than solving them as far as i hv experienced...moreover how many of the friends actually help in solving problems.i dnt think they actually help in ur times of need....e1 i have many friends but i didnt actually felt that these people gonna help me in my times of need....so i think having friends doesnt really matters...

A true Friendship is had with someone you can trust. Someone you can be accountable with and someone who will not take personal issues outside your friendship. This can be called trust. Trust is the most important factor in any friendship and once broken, its hard to get back to where you started and involves forgiveness
