Summary/Abstract: There are not many issues that hold such a prestigious position in fiction or lyrics as being in love and love in all its forms. This can be also viewed as a proof of how significant this experience is in human life. Romantic relationships in adulthood represent a deeply embedded and fairly frequent topic in counselling and clinical practice, as well as in empirical research in psychology of intimate relationships. As opposed to that, adolescent romantic relationships represent a relatively new topic in research (Brown, Feiring, & Furman, 1999); the development of its examination follows the developmental line of interest in adolescent intimate relationships in the direction away from relationships with parents, over peer relationships in a group, to the phenomenon of friendship and first platonic relationships.
