Research suggests that sexual attraction and mating motives sometimes play a role in the initiation and development of young adults' opposite-sex friendships. This study investigates young adults' and middle-aged adults' reports of their attraction to a cross-sex friend and their perceptions of flirtation and attraction as factors that facilitate the maintenance of the friendship.
