How Many Best Friends do you Have ?
Recently I asked this question on a social networking site I am actively involved in. I was curious to see how best friends people have.
The Results :
Idk – 1%
0 – 13%
1 – 32%
2 – 13 %
3 – 21% 4 – 9% 5+ – 10 %
The Most popular number of best friends most people have out of the individual who participated in the survey is 1 with 3 coming in second and 2 or 0 coming in third <<– Though that was weird.
Definition of a Friend:
the one friend who is closest to you
What a Best Friend is to me:
A best friend encompasses all aspects of a friend and more. This is the person I can go to no what the situation and know that the conversation we have will stay between the two of us. This is the person I can confide in if necessary. The one who will attend all my events no matter how near or how far. The one who knows what to say and when to say it. The one who knows me best, understands me and just gets me as a person. Someone who knows has my best interest at heart and doesn’t talk behind my back out of spite when we argue, if ever.
* my definition of a friend or best friend is actually really hard to put into words.. sometimes its just a feeling. This is the best way I came up with to explain it… and they don’t even touch on everything !
Friendship is very important to me, if I consider you a best friend understand that’s what you are to me and that I am going to best friend you with all that I have! Same thing goes for friends. I believe it is healthy to have friends in all aspects of life and to also understand what type of friend they are to you. Also understand what you consider friendship. What do you look for in a friend ? What makes up a friend to you ? Would you want to be your own friend based upon what you look for in others ? If you wouldn’t want to be your own friend then I suggest you start reevaluating your life and how you are living. Then reevaluate the people you have around you. Who has actually supported you ? What person is always there when you need them ? I also believe you should understand your circle. Who do you want to have a great relationship with but always flakes on you or finds some excuse not to show up ? Understanding your circle will help you grow and probably relieve some stress ! That’s my two cents lol
