dc.description.abstract Silence as a dynamic and symbolic form of human communication is not without implications for dyadic relationships. Attitudes toward silence, when occurring within interpersonal interactions, may provide insights into relational quality and satisfaction. This study seeks to understand how various types of dyads feel about silence and what connections may exist between attitude, sex, and relationship type. Comparisons are made between heterosexual married couples, male-female platonic friends, and same-sex friends using satisfaction, involvement, closeness, commitment, and gender as variables to determine their connection to attitude. en
