You might be having difficulty because your topic is very broad. You may want to consider narrowing it down by a specific population (for example, boys and girls in secondary school, college, etc.).  I suggest beginning with the database Academic Search Complete, which is available from our general/multidiscplinary database subject listing at the following URL: http://www.nyit.edu/library/find_resources/general.

Provided below are two searches in Academic Search Complete based on a narrower version of your topic. These searches have been limited to full-text, scholarly materials. Once you've opened the searches below, you may refine the results further by using the side-bar to filter by source type, subject, geography, etc.  

Search #1: (gender OR (males AND females)) AND friendship AND college students

http://arktos.nyit.edu/login?url=http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=a9h&bquery=(gender+OR+(males+AND+Females))+AND+(friendship)+AND+(college+students)&cli0=FT&clv0=Y&cli1=RV&clv1=Y&type=1&site=ehost-live&scope=site

Search #2: (gender OR (males AND females)) AND friendship AND high school students

http://arktos.nyit.edu/login?url=http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=a9h&bquery=(gender+OR+(males+AND+Females))+AND+(friendship)+AND+(high+school+students)&cli0=FT&clv0=Y&cli1=RV&clv1=Y&type=1&site=ehost-live&scope=site
