Do Female Friends Trump Romantic Relationships?
An excerpt from the article:
"In honor of National Women's Friendship Month, which is observed during September, Skout, the leading global social network for meeting new people, recently conducted a survey among women to uncover the latest trends and habits around women's friendship in today's digital society. Skout, which helps its users expand their social circles, made more than 500 million connections among its users in 2013.
More than 3,800 women who use Skout participated in the National Women's Friendship Month survey. Key findings include:
- The Internet is changing how we meet close friends. 83% of women say they have a good friend who they have met online but never in-person.
- Friends from childhood will always be special. 62% of women surveyed say one of their closest friends is someone they met as a child.
- Friends trump romance. 55% of women say their relationship with a best friend is more important than one with a romantic partner.
- Mobile devices and the Internet are key to staying in touch with close friends. 88% of women say they communicate with their close friends several times per week (in fact, 53% do so every day!). 68% of women say they primarily use their mobile phones or the Internet to communicate with close friends."
