Dost is like a "soulmate" then?

there is a song of Placebo called Sleeping with Ghosts... in that song Brain Molko says.

"soulmates never dies" its important to have soulmates or kankas or dosts. good day friends are everywhere BEWARE!

yaren isn't common and I think it should be skipped by learners. Most of the Turks wouldnt understand and if they do they would misunderstand it as it sounds related to yar (lover). Just forget about this one.
Ahbap can also be skipped if you don't like a strong language.

Well.. in the end i'd like to learn all the sides of a language.. also the ones that most turks dont even understand themselves But indeed.. not as a beginner
That is more for advanced, a stage i won't reach for quite some time im afraid..

arkadaş and dost means friend. we just explained the hidden meaning behind the word "dost". it simply has a more powerful meaning than arkadaş. and of course the "lover" meaning too.
