Find yourself calling or texting your best friend all the time?  It may be time for these two matching Best Friends iPhone cases from Rebecca Minkoff (via Pinterest):

Proper use of this phone case may actually save your life!  Scientists have found that friends can increase your life expectancy:


It was found that close contact with children and relatives had little impact on survival rates over the 10 years.  However, those with the strongest network of friends and acquaintances were statistically more likely to be alive at the end of the study than those with the fewest.

After controlling for demographic, health and lifestyle variables, the people in the top third of friends social networks were found to be 22% less likely to die over the following decade than people in the lowest third.  The researchers … said the benefits may be due to the fact people could choose their friends, as opposed to family members.

Do you have a best friend?  How long have you guys known each other, and how did you meet?
