Romantic relationships have been defined in countless ways, by writers, philosophers, religions, scientists, and in the modern day, relationship counselors. Sternberg defines love in terms of intimacy, passion, and commitment, which he claims exist in varying levels in different romantic relationships. Fisher defines love as composed of three stages: attraction, romantic love, and attachment. Romantic relationships may exist between two people of any gender, or among a group of people.
The single defining quality of a true relationship is the presence of love. Love is therefore equally difficult to define.Relationship is of the best ships we travel during our course of life.
Now, what is meant by true relationship!
Relationship is an emotional feeling of love for, or a strong attraction towards another person, and the courtship behaviors undertaken by an individual to express those overall feelings and resultant emotions.
A true relationship is where your love for your partner is much higher than your ego. Where your understanding of each others feeling is greater than your conflicts. Where your emotional bonding is so strong that the fight cannot survive longer than a few mins. Where there is so much intimacy, honesty and freedom that there is no room jealousy. Where you respect each others personal space and where there is no space for third person to come in between.
A true relationship is not a struggle for control, domination or power it is a struggle for making your bond stronger and stronger each day with more love, peace and harmony. A relationship where both partners get inner peace just by being with each other and where all there conflicts and fights end up in each others arm 🙂
