I think understanding is the base for any relationship to have existence. What do you think? What are the basic things to get any relationship work smoothly? Is it really necessary to meet and feel the touch of the person everyday. (I mean hug, kiss and all) . Isn't it possible that two persons from totally different interests can be best friends? I have heared that most different people can make the best couple. Is it really true ? Please help me understand the most important things for any relationship to go smoothly .

Yes understanding is one key to have a smooth relationship but you you also need a trust and compatibility.Trust is the secondary key to any relationship after LOVE.

I agree with you, however I would like to make a point here is, Trust should be the primary key because you can't love anyone if you don't trust him/her. However you could trust anyone before you start loving him/her.

for me, to get a relationship work smoothly, there should be love, understanding, trust, compromise and good communication. both should always take the effort to make the relationship better and never take each other for granted. Always provide TLC (Tender, Love and Care) :D

Thank you for you quick reply. Yes, I truly believe that both should take efforts to make it happen and never take anyone as granted if you want the person to be in relationship with you. When you are taking anyone as granted, you are not respecting him and when you don't respect anyone, how can you love them ? TLC is good terminolgoy. However, I would like to add one more point here is, honesty. Honesty is the best policy for any relationship. If you are not honest with someone else, you cant be honest to yourself.

I believe in three basic elements for a relationship to work smoothly these are love, respect and honesty. In addition, I think that it is also necessary to meet and feel the touch of the person everyday because with these little things, it shows affection and it shows love in a simple manner. It's possible that two different people of opposite interests be best of friends as long as they respect each other's point of view and give space for friendship to grow. Me and my boyfriend don't really agree on all things but we do have respect in each opinion that we express that is why there are less fights in our relationship.

WOW !!!!!! Great ! Answer. Yes I truly believe that honesty would be the best thing for any relationship to work out properly. If you are not honest with someone else, you are actually not honest with yourself. When you lie to someone else, you are actually lying to your inner self. Respect is also require. If you cant respect, you cant love. To love someone, you need to respect the person first. You need to respect the person as he/she is. You need to listen others point of view and give space to respect others. Keep loving people.

Well yes it is possible that two different people with different interest can be best of couples and best of friends, cause the key of having good and smooth relationship is RESPECT, although the basic key is LOVE but the most important is you know how to respect the others(in decision, rights and opinions)and well it is good to that both of you have good communication.

That's true, respect would be the first and primary thing in any realation to keep it alive. For example, if someone don't respect you, do you think you are going to keep anymore relationship with the person or love the person? No, I don't think so...

Yes if the respect is gone in a relationship, the Love and trust will destroy too.It is not so very difficult that sometimes be humble.

Communication and honesty are very important in keeping any relationship strong and meaningful!! They do say that opposites attract and i don't know if it is true but it does make sense to me! I do not think that there is need to see your significant other on a daily basis unless of course you two are married then it is a different story!!!

That's the valid point. Communication is the key of any relationship. If you cant communication, you cant come closer to any person. If you cant even come closer to anyone, how could you love them

Hi Kalpan, I know I am giving very late respond. To get a smooth relationship is undersstanding each other and they must know what other likes and dislikes.... I beleive that to have smooth relationship you must be honest and you must trust your partner, there should be good communication between each other even you are far away from your partner... I will tell you abt myself... Chintan is totally opposite than me... but we are together because we know each other and we love each other... we know each and everythings of our past... but it is must that we understand each other and we care for each other and always we think how other will be happy.... touch wood for our relationship.....

Yes, to know the other person is very important in any relationship but many a times this creates problem in relationship. Like say if you want to know some specific thing about your partner but your partner dont want you to know that. What happens here? I think along with trust, respect is the equally most important thing for any relattionship to work smoothly. I believe, if you cant respect, you cant love and if you cant love, you never want to keep the relationship any longer.
