Steady Dating and Self-Esteem in High School Students.
McDonald, D. L.; McKinney, J. P.
Journal of Adolescence, v17 n6 p557-64 Dec 1994
Results indicated going steady among high school sophomores was associated with lower self-esteem. Lowest scores were held by girls who had gone steady in the past and were still going steady. For boys the difference in self-esteem between those who were going steady and those who were not was unrelated to their past dating practices. (BF)
