Individuals connect continually so human connections are wherever throughout everyday life and in writing. Connections are all near, regardless of whether it isn’t self-evident. Connections can extend anyplace from companions to relational unions. There are a wide range of kinds of connections, none of which are similar. The vast majority consider connections to be great, some of them are terrible and unfortunate. They can now and then reason serious issues that influence the general population included and others as well. Connections can likewise be between gatherings of individuals.have many relationships dealing with my relatives and also many associates and many friends. I remember I was around 27 I was in a platonic relationship with this guy named david I’ve known him since I was about 14 so we’ve been 13 years we met in middle school around the time that I was bullied he was there with me thick and thin when I needed him the most through birthdays”,deaths”,holidays. This relationship was reached the intimacy stage during this stage partners confirm and accept each other’s self of sense (an interpersonal relationship that involves physical or emotional intimacy.) our intimate relationship developed (as well as reasons that our relationship is long terms ) at this stage because we spent countless amount of hours together and when we weren’t together we were on the phone either texting or Skyping and us being around each other so much we eventually got use to being in each other’s daily lives it was a routine now as if it was waking up and brushing your teeth it was that necessary for us to talk. We started to know each other like the back of our hands basically inseparable wherever he went I went, whatever he did I did. People would joke around and said we were soulmates in every aspect and if we were apart for too long we’d probably get lost and fall off a cliff to signify how close we were and how much we needed each other I found it funny because they weren’t entirely wrong.
“there’s nothing more intimate in life than simply being understood. And understanding someone else. (Brad Meltzer, the inner circle)”. The type of power relationship( that we had referent (being able to make others feel good, leading to increased trust and acceptance.) Referent power is one of the Five Bases of Social Power.Referent control alludes to the capacity of a pioneer to impact a devotee as a result of the adherent’s unwaveringness, regard, fellowship, adoration, love, or a longing to pick up endorsement.
Believe it or not attraction in relationships is important.
Numerous sorts of fascination incorporates sexual fascination its about taking a gander at somebody and feeling something toward them explicitly , sentimental fascination this kind of fascination is the place you need to be involved with the individual, physical fascination this is a longing to associate with others, to be physically thought about and treated with adoration and love. , passionate fascination this is the place you need to be candidly present with someone else. When you need to impart to them the things that you are feeling you feel an enthusiastic fascination. , and stylish fascination this sort of fascination is the thing that happens when you see somebody strolling down the road and imagine that they look great.
. In our relationship believe it or not all 5 types of attraction were included at every point in our relationship we craved each other in every aspect and every way a person could ever want a person. Attraction in any relationship bring people together in a relationship closer than they ever thought possible it’s amazing how one singular drop of attraction can make the smallest thing grow into something so much more it’s like dropping a tiny splash of water in hot oil feelings and emotions pop everywhere and refused to be contained no matter how much you try to keep it to yourself. Even though on paper our relationship sounds like the ideal fairytale dream relationship we have our flaws as anyone else we have different mind sets he’s ready to get married and I’m not the main reason is that we never really dated and he says that shouldn’t matter our relationship was basically dating but I strongly disagree we’re at two different points In life right now and it’s kinda causing a slight drift into us and I’m scared that one crack could set off a chain of events and I would hope for us to be on the same point. Strategies that could be used to maintain this relationship is using self disclosure which is conscious and subconscious act of revealing more about oneself to others.Intentional choice
Private Information/Risk/trust. Factors that affect self disclosure are individual differences”,culture, gender etc… but in our situation the type of self disclosure that we need to be exact is providing support and helpful responses and monitoring nonverbal cues. By providing support and helpful responses me and david can understand each other more if we sit down and calm talk things out and try to answer each worry or concern to the best of our abilities so no one is confused, lost or angry and by reading nonverbal cues such as facial expression or body language we can communicate on another level because for what words lack the body talks you can tell a lot about what a person is thinking by the way they move or look at someone and you can try to decode what it means and ask from there on out which would clarify the situation much easier. “It can be difficult to leave a long-term relationship, even when our inner-wisdom tells us it’s time to let go. At this point, we can choose let go and endure the intense pain of leaving behind the familiar to make way for a new chapter in our life. Or we can stay and suffer a low-grade pain that slowly eats away at our heart and soul, like an emotional cancer. Until we wake up, one day and realize, we are buried so deep in the dysfunction of the relationship that we scarcely remember who we were and what we wanted and needed to be.”
Which means to me acknowledge what you feel inside and go along with it cause one day you’ll regret.
