15 People Who Are Lucky to Have Lifelong Friends

Studies revealed that we make around 396 friendships during our lifetime, but only 33 of them will stand the test of time. Only 6 of them will be our close friends, while the rest will be nothing more than “social friendships” for us. Losing touch with friends may be one of our biggest regrets, but the good news is that we all may have 1 friend who stands the test of time and trouble.

Here at Bright Side, we strongly believe that a real friendship is like a bar of gold found in the dust. We’ve found 15 people who are lucky enough to have a bond so strong that time has not ruined it but only made it stronger.
