The Best Friend

How many best friends can you have? I always thought that being a best friend is something special. Something that you can be proud of. So how come that there are more than one best friend? When you label someone as best it means they are special, they stand out amongst the rest. Thats why its called "best". Maybe I'm just selfish but the special factor of a "best friend" seems to be gone when your not the only best friend.

I dont believe in having a best friend anymore. I mean everyone out there is so selfish and there is no phrase like "best friend" left ... atleast for me... And ya it's nice to have you here on mylot... :)

Thanks for the welcome. And yes I believe so too. maybe "best friend" was just used back in highschool. It is really sad when you lose real friends.

I agree with you about the complexity part of the friendship. But then My point is if you are the "best" then why so many right? I mean if you were to give grades to friends then the highest would be the best correct? Thre can't be 2 1st placer. Unless the other one would be 1st place for another category.
