What is a Relationship?
The dictionary defines a relationship as the quality or state of being related or connected. This related or connected state can be between people, groups and businesses, etc. A relationship is a continuing attachment or association with those people, groups and businesses.
Based on the dictionary's definition, we can determine that we have many relationships and not just romantic ones. We often think of romantic connections when the word relationship is used, but it applies to more than that.
With that being said, let's look at the various types of relationships we can have simultaneously.
Family Relationships ~ parent/child, siblings, extended family members.
Platonic Relationships ~ friends, acquaintances
Work Relationships ~ employer/employee and co-workers
Business Relationships ~ business/customers
Romantic Relationships ~ husband/wife, lovers and intimate couples
That's a bunch of relationships, isn't it?
