Abstract

College students responded to a survey of on the communication behaviors and information sharing expected in male-female relationships labeled friends, hanging-out, talking, casual dating, dating, boyfriend/girlfriend, and romantic relationship. Results show specific relationship differences and suggest expectations fall into three relational categories: nonromantic (friend), preromantic (talking, hanging-out, and casual dating), and romantic (dating, boyfriend/girlfriend, and romantic relationship). Ambiguity about the expectations for sharing information was high for the relationships in the preromantic category and low for the romantic.
