The structural opportunities and normative constraints affecting the cross-sex friendships of men and women were explored. Interview data from 800 middle-aged and elderly urban residents revealed that while only a minority report cross-sex friends, they constitute a significant segment of the interpersonal resources of a number of adults. Women had fewer opportunities and were subject to more constraints with respect to the formation of cross-sex friendship ties than men.
