At a girls school a certain amount of emotional energy, normally expended on boys, gets redirected into friendships."At the beginning of adolescence, there is a time when friendship is emphasized, usually junior high/middle school.
These friendships can have very strong emotional bonds, and, when two girls develop a close bond, it will almost appear to be a romance. Getting together to do something is a "date."
