摘要Individuals and societies strive to avoid loneliness in old age. The need of relatedness as human nature together with the social pressure may lead to the fear of being lonely in old age (FEAR). And we anticipated that FEAR may explain the harmful effect of dissatisfying relationships towards depressive symptoms and life satisfaction. A total number of 583 (19-85 years old) individuals participated in this study at two timepoints with a two-year interval across Hong Kong, USA and Germany. As expected, relationship dissatisfaction predicted more negative consequences over 2 years (bs = -.086 to .190, ps = .001 - .002) through the increase in FEAR across ages and cultures (bs = -.014 to .047, ps = .003 - .019). According to the results, the fear of being lonely should also be taken into consideration rather than just focusing on the reduction of loneliness in old age to promote individuals’ wellbeing.
