Edit What do you consider a best friend to be?

I consider my best friend a girl that I've known since I was six years old. We became friends in our first grade class and have been inseparable ever since. We walk into each other's homes and help ourselves. Her family is my family and vice versa. We even go to each other's houses when the other isn't there if we need to borrow/do something and our families don't mind. She's the only person who knows nearly everything about me and knows how I feel when all I can say is "And it's just like, I mean... yanno?" No matter how much time we spend together, we never get sick of each other. But we also realize that we have seperate lives and understand when we can't see each other for a while.
