Can you tell us more about the data cited in the NYT article--specifically, what question was asked? It looks like the data are about "close" friends, which could have nothing to do with the "classic best-friend bond" that the article purports to discuss. Was any data collected on the prevalence of best friends? I've heard people say something along the lines of "you'll be lucky if you have one true best friend in your life." Is there any evidence for or against this?
