  • It is more or less romantic in character. The innate romance which is in the heart of every man, fed by the reading of romances and novels, finds it earliest expression in this boyish attachment. Where there is co-education this friendship takes the form of calf-love which however seldom ends in marriage. School-friendship is noted for the exuberance of sentiment, emotional abandon and sacrifice.
