We've got the results here of a major survey on adult friendships. By that we mean friendships in adult life, not people you meet on AdultFriendFinder. Here are the highlights . . .
#1.) The average adult has FIVE close friends.
#2.) But, we have an average of 50 to 100 Facebook friends, and at least 50 numbers of friends in our phone. Still, just FIVE close friends.
#3.) About one in eight men and one in six women say there's at least one person in their friend group they HATE.
#4.) Women are more likely to still have a best friend from when they were in school. 34% of women say they have a lifelong best friend they met as a kid, versus 16% of men.
#5.) 33% of women now have a real friendship with someone from their childhood they reconnected with on Facebook. Only 5% of men have done that.
#6.) We make about two out of five of our friends at work.
