In the style section of the French Weekly, L’Express, journalist Mina Soundarim writes about Amitié (friendship) and the prominence of the acronym BFF in pop culture, especially as used by media stars and their girl squads.

As examples, she mentions BFF plots in TV series like Sex and the City and subsequently in Girls, Pretty Little Liars and Faking It.

The author quotes The Friendship Doctor:

“Irene Levine, the human needs of these two kinds of relationships: platonic and romantic. “In a sense, they are not so opposed. Losing a friend is also a painful breakup. Moreover, break with a friend can be very complicated, because there are no rules for divorce.”

Admittedly, a bit gets lost in the Google translation of the article. But if you can read and understand French, you might enjoy reading the article in its entirety on L’Express here.
