"The person you love is not someone you can live with, but someone you can not live without." So I say a best friend is someone you can live with someone to play around and talk to but your okay when they go "live" with other people but someone you love well you feel like crap if they go "live" with someone else therefore you can't live without them. Sorry if I'm being confusing....
You make sense, to an extent. but I cannot live without my best friend. He's one of the few people who's taken the time to get to know me, and generally just have an awesome time.
The only thing people ever find is that "deeper connection". But if you go out being all "OMG I NEED A GIRLFRIEND" you're not going to find that connection.
