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. They [[HoldingHands hold hands]]. Getting together to do something is a "date." Fights are treated as a "break-up". They may not "actually" be in a romantic relationship, but it is emphasized in such a way that if they were, you'd assume it'd look this way.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'', Asuna strikes one with Yuuki during the Mother's Rosario arc. The "romantic" undertones are milder than in other examples, but Yuuki still lampshades it, suggesting that they should "get married" as a joke; Asuna even gets a bit flustered, and Yuuki has to calm her down reminding her that she has a boyfriend already anyway. [[spoiler: And then it turns out Yuuki is terminally ill in the real world...]]

* An [[https://journals.ku.edu/index.php/amerstud/article/viewFile/2910/2869.._1 essay]] on 1920s feminism by Maureen Honey outlines this trope:
-->One substantial shift that occurs in the decade that weakens this tie to other women is the undermining of what Lillian Faderman calls "passionate friendships" between unmarried women.26 There are instances in magazine fiction when women form companiate relationships with each other that withstand a marriage offer to one of the couple. Most often, though, the heroine's companion will introduce her to a relative, who has all the qualities of her friend but whose maleness opens her mind to marriage.

If the romance starts to become 'too' passionate, parents may try to intervene to separate the girls. This should never become physical ''that way''; it would 'corrupt' the IncorruptiblePurePureness. [[GrowingUpSucks Which is then traded in for marriage.]] If the girls do cross the line into sex (or even passionate kissing), they are no longer this trope, instead becoming SchoolgirlLesbians, and are treated differently.
