Women only consider three friends completely trustworthy and reliable

London, Apr 16 (ANI): For women, only three of their friends are completely trustworthy and reliable, a new British poll has found.

The survey of more than 3,000 people found that despite a circle of 22 friends on average, people in the UK have close relationships only with few of them.

Three-quarters of best friends are revealed as family members, with mothers topping the list at 39 per cent, followed by sisters at 23 per cent, while one in 10 people nominated their spouse.

The study showed that a typical close friendship lasts 18 years, with most best friends meeting at school, work or university.

However, the study also found that people lose touch with around 24 friends over the years, simply drifting apart.

“It is only the really strong friendships which continue despite life’s interruptions, and of course family members are often the most reliable and trustworthy people to turn tom” the Daily Express quoted Shefali Mattani of Nivea, which commissioned the survey, as saying.

Two-thirds of those questioned said a busy lifestyle meant they saw friends less and less, although a third were happy to confide in their pals over the Internet.

“There really is nothing like making the effort to meet face-to-face. That is why we are urging people to take time out, really think about the relationships they have, and celebrate close family ties and friendships,” said Mattani.

Unsurprisingly, 84 per cent of people questioned claimed that relationships with family and friends were the most important things in their life. (ANI)
