What is a relationship?
A relationship is a ‘connection’. It may be a connection
to people or to other things.
Relationships between people happen when they meet and get to know
each other. They may end up spending more and more time with each other
as they become friends or partners. There are many different kinds of
relationships in people’s lives:
professional relationships—you and your employer,
you and your co-workers, you and your doctor
family relationships—mother-child, father-child, etc.,
may include your closest family, and also extended family members
friendships—people who share things about themselves,
do things together and care about each other
love relationships—people involved in loving, sexual
dating relationships—boyfriend-girlfriend relationships,
which may develop into loving relationships
