|How Important Is Your Girlfriend To You? by judchuks20(m): 1:09pm On Aug 02|
What would you do without your best gal pal?
August 1 is National Girlfriends Day, which, according to National Day Calendar encourages women nationwide to celebrate their friendships and let their friends know how much they mean to each other.
National Girlfriends Day reportedly dates back to 2002 and was created by mother-daughter duo Kathleen Laing and Elizabeth Butterfield.
How important are friends?
Research in 2017, published in the journal Personal Relationships, indicated that as people age, friends became a stronger indicator of overall happiness than even family.
The study looked at over 270,000 people in nearly 100 countries found that strong friendships contributed to better mental health in advance age.
“But the really surprising thing was that, in a lot of ways, relationships with friends had a similar effect as those with family—and in others, they surpassed them,” said the study’s author, Wiliam Chopik, Assistant Professor of Psychology at Michigan State University.
