Abstract:

143 open-ended responses were coded for termination reason and termination method used. Five reasons emerged: betrayal, disapproved traits, disapproved behavior, competing relationships, and increased distance. Four methods emerged: purposeful avoidance, fade away, hostile interaction, and direct request. Friendships terminated for betrayal were likely to end through purposeful avoidance. Friendships terminated for increased distance were likely to end through fading away. Conflict strategies were examined. Friends reported engaging in avoidant and distributive conflict styles during termination.
