types of peer relationships
Types of Peer Relationships
  • Friendships




  • Cliques
  • Dating Relationships
casual friendships
Casual Friendships
  • Casual friends are peers with whom you feel socially connected. *(These friendships, however, do not fill some of the deeper needs humans have.)
close friendships
Close Friendships
  • A close friend is more likely to share with you what he or she is really feeling and thinking and, in turn, make you feel comfortable doing the same. You may trust a close friend with your secrets or go to this person when you are hurting, confused, or in trouble. He or she might give you honest criticism and provide encouragement.
platonic relationships
Platonic Relationships
  • A platonic friendship is a relationship with a member of the opposite gender in which there is affection, but no sexual activity.
  • A clique is a small, narrow circle of friends, usually with similar backgrounds or tastes, that excludes people they view as outsiders.

Negative Impacts of Cliques
  • Clique members may treat non-members with disrespect.
  • Being part of a clique can be damaging because members are often discouraged from thinking and acting as individuals.
  • You might be pressured to do things that go against your values.
Clique members may also be missing out on the benefits of meeting and interacting with a variety of people, which is important to an individual’s social health.
  • The beliefs and actions of cliques are prejudicial
  • Rejecting others based on superficial differences is damaging and can be damaging to clique members in the long run.
