The average Brit will go on more 2,000 nights out, spend 39,000 hours laughing, and share 630 secrets during a lifetime of friendship.
A poll of 2,000 adults revealed they will also spend an average of 125,143 minutes – the equivalent of 87 days – chatting to pals over the phone and send an enormous 36,036 messages.
The average adult currently has 10 good friends – with one in 10 knowing their closet companion since they were six.
It also emerged 17 years is the average length of a friendship, although 17 per cent have had the same best friend for more than 30 years.
When quizzed on what makes a good friend, giving honest outfit advice, making each other laugh and sending embarrassing photos on a birthday were cited as the top things.
The research was commissioned by Disney as part of its Wonder of Friendship campaign that celebrates Mickey Mouse and Friends’ iconic friendships.
