Who is a 'best friend'?

we come across so many people in our life. few of them help us solve problems, some simply share fun, some offer advice..some go out with us on shopping.... you think there is somebody called "true friend" or "best friend"? I personally think ....nobody can be best..what do you think?

everyone has best friend. if you don't have one, you just haven't met him/her. just as friends are more than acquaintances, best friends are more than friends no one can be my friend if I don't trust him/her in the first place but there are things I only share with my best friends because I trust them more than I trust other friends this is why often the saying : 'I marry my best friend' and not 'I marry my friend' because you can have many friends, but not necessarily many best friends how to determine best friend is each person's preference some people go with how long they have been friends and whatever criteria my best friends and I shared many things in our lives we don't share with anybody else. they are always there when I need advice and shoulder to cry on. they are like my own family, in fact I consider them closer than family. all my friends are true friends, otherwise they won't be my friends to begin with but some people are more laid back than I am my husband calls everyone his friends, even if he just meets them for a drink but even he has best friends and I am one of them

The fact that I've formed friendship with people who I've depended on and they are honest and like a family to me is enough for me to consider them as my best and true friends. Of course we have our ups and downs. When a true friend is there for you in sickness and in health, then isn't that friend a best friend to extent their personal care for your sake?

It is just a mirrage. The is no such thing as a true friend. It is scientifically demonstrated that all people will betray you, eventually, if given an competitionn, a contest, with great stakes, you will be treated as a common enemy, even if you shared the same room at the dormitories. I do not want to sound harsh, but this is the truth. Everybody can be your best friend, unless you get in their way. That is if that person has some integrity and self confidence.
