We all have many relationships with friends, family, and people in our community but what about the capital R Relationship? The romantic and sexual types of relationships.
All relationships are made up of different levels of:
Passion - feelings of attraction and desire
Intimacy - feelings of closeness and being connected
Commitment - feelings of dedication and attachment
People want different things in relationships. Some people might want a relationship that is just passion with no commitment or intimacy, like a hookup. Others might want a relationship with a lot of commitment and intimacy, and less passion. Knowing and discussing what the expectations are can help prevent hurting others and ourselves.
