questions: deep friends, being in love

recently an LJ friend of mine asked how many friends I have according to Shakespeare's definition: "A friend is one who knows who you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still gently allows you to grow."

and I said that most of you fit that description, because I am fucking lucky, and created my own definition which is a bit more demanding:

my definition of a deep friend:
"A deep friend is one who loves who you are, understands who you have been, always seeks to learn more about you, supports you when you're low, and continually encourages you to grow."

and I want to ask:
1) do you have / have you had deep friends? do you value friendships that have a focus of growth (rather than fun)?
2) what does it mean to be "in love"?
