McBride, Cami K.; Field, Tiffany
Adolescence, v32 n127 p515-22 Fall 1997
Videotaped 48 11th graders during interactions with their best same-sex and opposite-sex friends. Analysis reveals that females felt more comfortable during same-sex interactions than during opposite-sex ones. Females rated their same-sex partner more positively than did males, and females exhibited more playful states during same-sex interactions. (RJM)
