One study supporting the works of Rokach et al., (2004; 2005; 2007; 2008) adds up to the evidence that different cultures and age groups have varied perception on loneliness. Seepersad, Choi & Shin (2008) provided this evidence when they found out that the severity of loneliness in qualitative social relationships, specifically in romantic relationships among the Korean young adults and the American young adults significantly varies, with the Americans having greater degrees of "romantic loneliness" and with greater degrees of closeness to their romantic partners inversive to the Koreans (Seepersad, Choi & Shin, 2008)....   [tags: Psychology, Loneliness] 564 words
