What is a relationship? Friendship is a type of relationship as I was talking about earlier... How do you know when you have started a relationship? There are many people I talk to and have gotten close to, but how do you know if its a relationship? What types of relationships are there? When can you consider a relationship a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship. Even if my best friend is extremely close to me and of the opposite gender, how will I know if we are ready to enter a stage of this relationship? Could it even happen or are we stuck on the friendship ladder? So guys, what do you think about relationships? How do they start? How can they happen? Who can be the other? Are you happy in them? Have you ever regretted it? Would you be happier alone?

Well, relationship comes in different nouns and levels. Basically, it talks about how are you related to a person or anything under the sun that you are connected and keeping in touch with. These are some examples: mother, father, brother, sister, friends, boy/girlfriends, wife/husband, grannies, co-employee, boss, son/daughter, granddaughter/son..... etc. etc. All comes in certain levels, your mother or father can also be your friend.. that's a relationship. Getting into account with bestfriend/boyfriend/girlfriend... say, you have your bestfriend and both of you knows everything on each of your personality. Then, you got a good relationship as friends. That's one level. A level of being friends. Then, if you guys feel that you can take another pace to a much higher level of relationship you can be boy/girlfriends depending on how do you handle such a kind of relationship.

i think that relationships start as soon as you make a connection with someone. this could be just talking to a person and developing a sense of trust, this would mean that you are developing a sense of friendship. you know when you are going from this level of a relationship to a next when you want to spend more and more time with the person and you find yourself looking at them in a differant way to how you look at the rest of your friends. when i want to move a relationship to the next level i simply try to spend more and more time with the person i am considering, seeing how it is they take it when i want to spend more time, and then from then onwards i can decide what i need or want to do. khris

relationships are anything where you have built a connection with someone. if you have made friends then this is friendship, by making friends you know this is because you can talk to the person and you start developing trust in that person and when they start to have trust in you. you know when you are getting attracted to someone when you want to spend more and more time with them when it is at a level above friendship. there are many types of relationships and i love everyone of them. i like to make new friends, and spend time on subjects i like or with people i get on with. khris

Mostly we feels impossible to find someone who's right for you - and who thinks you're right for him or her! It's totally normal to look at the world through rose-colored glasses in the early stages of a relationship. But for some people, those rose-colored glasses turn into blinders that keep them from seeing that a relationship isn't healthy as it should be. What Makes a Healthy Relationship?Take a step back from the dizzying sensation of being swept off your feet and think about whether your relationship has these qualities:Mutual respect - Does he or she get how cool you are and why? The key is that your partner is into you for who you are - for your great sense of humor, your love etc. Respect in a relationship means that each person values who the other is and understands and never challenge - the other person's boundaries. Trust - Does he completely lose his cool or keep walking because he knows you'd never cheat on him? It's OK to get a little jealous sometimes - jealousy is a natural emotion. But how a person reacts when he or she feels jealous is what matters. There's no way you can have a healthy relationship if you don't trust each other. Honesty - This one goes hand-in-hand with trust because it's tough to trust someone when one of you isn't being honest. Support - It's not just in bad times that your partner should support you. Some people are great when your whole world is falling apart but can't take being there when things are going right (and vice versa). In a healthy relationship, your significant other is there with a shoulder to cry on when you find out your parents are getting divorced and to celebrate with you when you get the lead in a play. Fairness/equality - You need to have give-and-take in your relationship, too. Do you take turns choosing which new movie to see? As a couple, do you hang out with your partner's friends as often as you hang out with yours? It's not like you have to keep a running count and make sure things are exactly even, of course. But you'll know if it isn't a pretty fair balance. Things get bad really fast when a relationship turns into a power struggle, with one person fighting to get his or her way all the time. Separate identities - In a healthy relationship, everyone needs to make compromises. But that doesn't mean you should feel like you're losing out on being yourself. When you started going out, you both had your own lives - your own families, friends, interests, hobbies, etc. - and that shouldn't change. Neither of you should have to pretend to like something you don't, or give up seeing your friends, or drop out of activities you love. And you also should feel free to keep developing new talents or interests, making new friends, and moving forward. Good communication - We all know how many different meanings the little phrase "no, nothing's wrong" can have, depending on who's saying it! But what's important is to ask if you're not sure what he or she means, and speak honestly and openly so that the miscommunication is avoided in the first place. And if you need some time to think something through before you're ready to talk about it, the right person will give you some space to do that if you ask for it. Relationships can be one of the best - and most challenging - parts of your world. They can be full of fun, romance, excitement, intense feelings, and occasional heartache, too. Whether you're single or in a relationship, remember that it's good to be choosy about who you get close to. If you're still waiting, take your time and get to know plenty of people. Think about the qualities you value in a friendship and see how they match up with the ingredients of a healthy relationship. Work on developing those good qualities in yourself - they make you a lot more attractive to others. And if you're already part of a pair, make sure the relationship you're in brings out the best in both of you.

By a relationship I understant a lot of differnt things, ot depends now on what you are relating with, is it a person, a flower, a animal, a car, a place. There are examples where some people relate more to a car or a flower then to a real person and they have certain feelings for that object. Do you agree with me? Good luck and have a nice day on mylot!
