A fictional companion, often created out of loneliness. Imaginary friends can often be found congregating around definitions of non-celebrities, singing the praises of the person in question.
OMG, John is so awesome. He's loved by his mobs of friends, his family, and even complete strangers he meets on the street. He's friendly, and well-mannered, with nary a hair out of place. John's amazing at sports and all the ladies are unable to resist his charms and good looks. Plus, he's such a great friend. I don't know where I'd be today if I'd never met the paragon of perfection that is John.

An imaginary friend is NOT the result of mental impairment. Actually, those with an imaginary friend are frequently smarter than most people (two brains in one). It's someone who is always with you, thus you are never alone. He knows you, your greatest desires and your flaws. So he usually judges you... but also the others around you. He comes often when you feel alone and need some help, or need to talk but have nobody trustworthy. An imaginary friend is really helpful, I advise you to try ! But pay attention, if your friend is comic, to not laugh too loud. People could think you're strange, even if it is a good thing, they're not really tolerant.

PS : Never let someone tell you he is not real, “Of course it is happening inside your head, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?” (JKR)
My imaginary friend is Sirius Black, so he never died and is ALWAYS with me.
