This project is a follow-up and extension of the exploratory study "Ghosting: Relationship Dissolution in the 21st Century." Based on preliminary exploratory findings, motivations for, processes by which, and consequences of two specific breakup strategies (direct conversations and ghosting) will be compared for both relationship disengagers (those who initiate their breakups) and relationship recipients (those who were broken up with) in terms of specific breakup tactics used during the breakup process, breakup distress, positive and negative affect, and post-breakup personal growth.
