Abstract or Summary
  • The goal of this research was (1) to identify the patterns or pattern pieces of development for heterosexual, dyadic, romantic relationships that emerge from mixed-sex, friendship groups and (2) to compare and contrast those patterns or pattern pieces to patterns in existing stage theories. To address these goals, data were collected from students at a mid-sized, northwestern, land-grant university. Grounded theory was selected to analyze the data to allow the potential emergence of new perspectives and patterns. Two conclusions about relationship development emerged from the collected data. First, some participants did not identify the friendship and the romance as two distinct relationships. On the other hand, a second set of participants indicated the friendship and romance were, in fact, two distinctly different relationships. Differences in conclusions drawn by these two groups generated six possible revisions to existing relationship development stage theories.
