Interpretation of dream: Best friend

If there is some situation or incident that has happened recently then the appearance of a best friend maybe very much linked to that. But if that is not the case then their appearance maybe symbolic. In such cases the best friend can often symbolise your ideal situation or preferred outcome. The dream will be about what is best for you. If the best friend is someone that you do not recognise it may suggest that this ideal situation is not been reached or is not achievable.
