We definitely use the word "friend" a lot more loosely than we used to . . . after all, I still have Facebook "friends" who I met at a bar one time in 2008. But we still take the concept of BEST friends pretty seriously.

A new survey asked people what it takes for someone to be their "best" friend.

And the average person says they need to be friends with the person for four years . . . and go through four INTENSE personal experiences together.

So what experiences build up your "best friend" resume? Here are the top five . . .

1. Going through something traumatic.

2. Going on vacation.

3. Going on a road trip.

4. Talking regularly on the phone or texting at least once a day.

5. Showing loyalty and having each other's back.
