In my experience, I believe the term "Best-friend" should be defined to one person, and one person only. . Best is a word which suggests one. A best-friend would surely mean someone who you can tell everything and anything too, someone who understands you etc yet some and a lot of people say they have around 1-20 best-friends. Does that mean for every single one of those 1-20 people you tell them exactly everything? I doubt it. Wouldn't it make more sense to say you have one sole best-friend and the rest being close friends. Would make more sense?

"Pro argues that the term "best friend" should be reserved for one person.

Definition of person: "a human being regarded as an individual" [1].
Definition of best friend: "the one friend who is closest to you" [2]

P1) The word "person" is limited to humans.
P2) Dogs are man's best friend
C1) The phrase "best friend" is not limited to humans.

As I have just proven that the word "best friend" is not limited to humans, I believe to have won the debate. I await Pro's rebuttal.

Best in what area? If you have many good friends, who serve different roles in your life, saying one is better than the others is incredibly subjective.
