Research Thesis Topic
The cycle of relationship sabotage: From communication of romantic interest to dissolution of intimate engagements.
A quick glance at the literature suggests that although many individuals are searching for love, failure can often be the expected outcome. Some people are stuck in a continuous cycle of successfully initiating a relationship, not being able to maintain long-term engagements, and embarking upon a path to a destined break-up. Although the concept of self-sabotage can explain why and how this phenomenon occurs; no empirical research existed in this area until recently. Research needs to continue to further validate the newly developed Relationship Self-Sabotage Scale. Additionally, research in this area will benefit from exploring individual differences such as age, gender, sexual orientation, cultural background, attachment styles and behaviours, and flirting and dating behaviours.
