Up to 75 percent of all women have a best friend – a role that inspires the highest level of acceptance, loyalty, commitment and advocacy. Research has proven that the ties that bind close female friends can often be stronger that those that women have lovers, husbands and even blood relations.
Jan Yager, a US author of several books on friendship, says trust, empathy, honesty, confidentiality, commonality and the ability to listen are essential to healthy friendships. She believes that to go far in life, women must have valued, caring, loyal and trustworthy friends to help them along the way and encourage them to enjoy their journey.
