Connolly, Jennifer; Furman, Wyndol; Konarski, Roman
Child Development, v71 n5 p1395-1408 Sep-Oct 2000
Examined adolescents' peer structures and the quality of their friendships as antecedents of romantic relationships among 180 high schoolers followed from grade 9 through 11. Found that small groups of close friends predicted other-sex peer networks that, in turn, predicted the emergence of future romantic relationships. Found indirect effects for same-sex groups of close friends and same-sex networks. (Author/KB)
