Passionate Friendships among Adolescent Sexual-Minority Women.
Diamond, Lisa M.
Journal of Research on Adolescence, v10 n2 p191-209 2000
Examined friendships that are emotionally passionate yet lack sexual activity among 18- to 25-year-old sexual-minority women. Found that passionate friendships contained more characteristics of romantic friendships than conventional friendships. Same-sex passionate friendships were initiated at earlier ages than same-sex conventional friendships, and if initiated prior to the first same-sex sexual contact, were less likely to involve sexual attraction.
