i've always been a little bit bothered by the title "best friend" just b/c it's often times a misnomer, as many people have more than 1 "best" friend. but nowadays i seem to hear it thrown about so liberally that it seems to encompass anyone who's more than a passing acquaintance. and having too many "best" friends kinda dilutes that title's importance IMHO. personally, i'm not too big on labeling when it comes to people i know. generally i just keep it pretty basic: like people i see only at school or work are just acquaintances, while i consider anyone i can hang out with a friend. but naturally, some friends are closer than others, but i've never actually used the term "best friend" to label any of those friends, at least i havent in a long time. i mean, it's kinda weird, i have some close friends who i only go do stuff with and party with and then i have some other close friends who i only talk about important stuff with. yet i honestly can't think of anyone that's a mix of those two that i'd actually consider a "best" friend tho. i bring this up b/c i remembered a friend telling me once they considered me their best friend, but now that i think about it, we're really not that close. so what do you consider "best friend" material?
