Sex Differences in Same-Sex Friendship.
Caldwell, Mayta A.; Peplau, Letitia Anne
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v8 n7 p721-32 Jul 1982
College students answered questionnaires regarding number of same sex friends and frequency of interaction, typical and preferred kinds of interactions, and emotional intimacy. Men and women did not differ in number of friends, time spent with friends, nor in value placed on intimate friendships. Sex differences were found, however, in the nature of interactions.
