A best friend (or best friends) gives you the unconditional love and support that we need from someone outside of our family. They understand you, are completely honest with you (even when they know that they are going to make you mad). They are there for them when you need them, even if you are angry with one another. Friends, although important, won't necessarily give you the emotional support that a best friend will.

I think you need to have a lot of friends and a best friend in you life. I don't know why but i feel so. If you share all your thoughts with everyone.. i don't know.. its not quite right.(not that there's any problem with it.. its just what i feel) You should share everything in your life with your best friend. maybe all your friends might go away and only your best friend will be there for you

You can have a lot of friends as many as you want to have but only few are those you can consider a Bestfriend we have our own reason why we choose bestfriend but whatever reason we have we are using our head & heart in choosing them. We have secrets that only a person we can trust that we will share & not to everbody else so that's one reason why we have bestfriend.

Because this world is not that simple. People tend call other people friends but end up using them for some of their own purposes. So we need a best friend that'd be someone we can trust. Someone we'll know who'd be there to come when we'll call for help and so on...

because a bestfriend is / are the friends who really we can count on to. a friends who could always be there for us the best they could whenever we needs them. who wouldn't think bout times and places when we needs them, through anything even just an sms, phone, email, or chat. anything just to be there for us and shows their caring attention.. those are the people that we really needs more than other friends, because they're the ones who really knew us well, from the good to the bad inside us and still accept us for who we are without trying to change us to what they wanted us to be.. we can have a different opinions, arguements, way of thinking, but still..that won't make us lose the friendship we've built. We put a trust into that kind of bestfriend-ship, not just a regular trust..but more to a family trust, like a sister or brother, sometimes even more.. those are the people who really respect and accept us for who we are, that's the most..

I dont think it's an essential but it's something that I'd like because I do want a friend that I can share things with and run to and like wise, I want to be the same for another person,too. You can have many friends but you can't share EVERYTHING with all your friends. Most of the time, there are only a select few or even just one person who you can trust.

in every group there is always one that can be consider as the best. That is normal for us to have favorite... and usually our favorite is something that has a character that we can't find to others. having a best friend is not a requirements for everyone, it is just depend on your own wants.

Best friends are not many. You must give more efforts and time for getting best friends. I only have 3 best friends. We had already been friends 20 years age, and we were together with true heart.We help each other. I can only tell my best friends about the words in heart.
