    Abstract:
    Looking back through the research I have conducted on the need to belong, I discovered three unpublished projects that might be of interest. At the time, each of these projects needed follow-up work to replicate findings and resolve fuzziness in their results, yet each addressed unexplored questions, generated useful findings, and offers directions for future research. These projects involved distinguishing the effects of social exclusion and low relational value on reactions to rejection, the effects of darkness on the need to belong, and the effect of acceptance and rejection on interpersonal aspirations. Knowing that I will not be digging deeper into these ideas myself, I describe them here to put them on the record and possibly stimulate further research.
