    内容提要:Consumers often rely on consumption to repair their moods. However, there is little evidence in consumer research on how consumers use consumption to reduce loneliness, given the evidence that loneliness is associated with negative consequences, both psychological and physical. This research addresses this gap by investigating how consumption rituals can decrease loneliness, thus leading to higher purchase intention towards the product contained in the ritual. Through two lab studies and two online studies, we find that consumers are more willing to engage in ritualized consumption than normal consumption when they feel lonely, but not when they feel calm or angry. Meaning in life mediates the interaction between loneliness priming and ritual manipulations. Therefore, this research contributes to the effect of rituals on emotions and consumption behavior by establishing a causal link among rituals, meaning in life, and loneliness. In addition, our research also contributes to the psychology and clinical literatures on how to cope with loneliness.
