    Absolutely, yes.  Technically my bridesmaids/men are my best friends, but I only talk to one of them every day or every other day briefly, and I see each of them maybe once every 2 or 3 months.  I spend almost all my time (that’s not working or commuting) with Fiance, we can talk about and share everything and we have the same ideas/thoughts as well.

    He is one of my closest friends, so yes. He is my best friend. We’ve been through so much together and on our personal journeys and it made us really closer together. I am happy he is and we can share so much of ourselves. I voted that I have multiple best friends, and he is one of them. 🙂

    With my ex f. ex I didn’t feel that way.

    Yes.  He’s my best friend in the entire world.  He is the one who knows me the best, cares for me the most, spends the most time with me and also considers me his best friend in the entire world.  We have a very strong bond and we’re extremely intimate.  We have no secrets from each other.

    This is being honest and with no hesitation.

    My best girlfriend lives in Ohio now and I miss her dearly, but even she isn’t as close to me as he is.  🙂

    I don’t know why so many people get in a tizzy about this (not saying you are, OP). I know there are lots of debates about this subject. To me it’s all just semantics.

    I have a ‘best friend’ who is a girl. I’ve know her 10+ years… she’s my closest friend, or ‘best’ friend I guess.

    My boyfriend is my friend and lover. I guess when it comes down to it, he’d be my best friend… but I would never call him that because to me it’s one of those ‘duh’ things that he’d be the first person you go to when something is wrong or whatever. I guess I just use the label ‘best friend’ for my closest friend, and then the ‘boyfriend’ ‘husband’ etc. label for the man in my life lol.

    Yes, he is my best friend.

    I had a much closer connection to my girl friends when I was younger. When we spent every weekend at bars, the beaches, etc. But relationships change and people change. I still love my girls, but my FH is my true best friend and the only one that really understands me.

    @canarydiamond:  I totally agree. I don’t call my Fiance best friend, but we know we are. I always talk about him as my FI- Boyfriend or Best Friend etc. 🙂

    I have a female best friend (my MOH) and a male best friend (my FI), and I’m so lucky to have known both of them for about 10 years now.

    Absolutely. He’s the person I most want to spend time gossiping with, hanging out with, watch movies with and do pretty much anything else with.

    Without a doubt, he’s my best friend.

    Yes, totally. Even if we weren’t together, he’d still be my best friend. I love him so, so much, but I also like him a lot. Know what I mean?

    Yes.  He is my best friend, I also have my brother and two cousins (who were bridesmaids).  They are best friends/family.  Other than that, I have some “close friends” but I’ve never really given my heart away to a “best friend”.

    Yes, he is my best friend.  I never got along with girls to begin with and guys were always considered my best friends.  Just turns out we’re in love and getting married.

    I have two best friends, and he is the closer of the two (by far!)  My other best friend has been my bestie since grade school, but she’s not as close as Fiance.

    He absolutely is my best friend and he tells me all the time that I am his.  I think it’s ok for your Fiance not to be your best friend, but he should be a close #2.  I do have a best friend girl friend but even that friendship doesn’t compare to mine and FI’s.
