I've had bunnies for pets, meat and fiber. What exactly is your purpose behind wanting one? Different breeds are meant for different purposes (as with all livestock). My pet through college was a mini rex named Lola she was potty trained and a sweet heart. I'd take her for walks like a dog everyday.

I have one french angora now who's a rascal but provides nice soft fiber. Could have been a pet I suppose but really better suited for being a hutch bunny.
I also have meat rabbits who are very sweet (most of the time) and some breeds could be pets (think: flemmish giant).
Bunnies are a huge responsibility. Along the lines of a puppy that never matures. If kept indoors you literally will need to bunny proof everything. They need to be potty trained like a toddler. Thankfully, they pick up on it quicker They can live for 10-15 years depending on breed and health and care.
If kept outside, it is infinitely less invasive but in order to spend time with them you will need to go outside everyday and play with them. Bunnies need 2 hours of exercise a day to continue to be healthly. That means out of cage exercise you can't get them a wheel like a hamster.
All the hard stuff out of the way I will say that Lola was one of my favorite pets ever! Bunnies are amazingly smart (for being what they are) and have a deep set loyalty for their owners once trust is established. Lola used to chase off strangers on the couch so she could sit next to me. She always followed me from room to room and was a very dear bunny. I had to give her away to a sweet little girl once I had my child because of time restraints. Bunnies demand alot of time to be kept happy. Hope this helps!
