I think although your significant other can totally be close to being your best friend, but he cannot be that female friend of yours that can share your thoughts on how cute is Channing Tatum, not so much to the extent that your best friend can.
Your girlfriend will also never understand why guys do together in a group and talk about the shit that they do.
So I feel, although we can be a very good friend plus a whole lot other than even the best of friends can never give, I think your S/O can never be the best friend you think you want him to be.
Tell me your thoughts though... prove me wrong... or agree with me... both are welcomed.

He can't understand me in the way a female can, this is true. It depends how you define best friend. I do think men and women think differently and don't understand each other as well as men do each other and women do each other. But in a good relationship you can build a very close emotional connection that somehow feels more intimate than it does with my female friends. I guess it's because we are able to build a good friendship despite our differences that makes it lovely.0
