Sažetak

The aim of this study was to examine the role friendship
maintenance strategies play in satisfaction with same-sex
friendships, with a particular interest in actor and partner
effects of friendship maintenance strategies and whether
these differ in male and female same-sex friendships. The
study involved 196 pairs of friends 19-30 years old, both
male/male and female/female pairs. The results revealed
significant actor effects for all three dimensions of friendship
maintenance strategies, such that both men and women who
show more affection, show less antagonism and interact with
friends more, are more satisfied with their friendships. No
partner effects were significant for male same-sex
friendships. In female same-sex friendships we found a
significant partner effect for expressing affection – women
with more affectionate female friends are more satisfied with
their friendships. The results are discussed in the context of
gender and cultural differences in friendship maintenance
strategies.
