This site began as a way for readers to explore their dating and romantic relationship patterns. After over a year of reading, research, and writing, the site hit a kind of “block”. It was not a block from a lack of information about how to understand your romantic relationships.
As the author, I realized the site’s information could benefit readers in some instances but something was missing. Discussions of all the other relationships in our lives was missing. These relationships help form how we go about our romantic relationships; they form how our children will go about theirs. Relationships with our parents, grandparents, care-givers, peers, friends, children, co-workers, or people we interact with all matter. Over the years I have heard many people ask “What do you do for a living?” It is our conversation go-to to get to know someone.
The most appropriate answer to that question may be, “I am in relationship with other people.” But what does that mean? What is the importance of having happy and healthy relationships?
I have heard people say “It is healthy to fight.” Is that the real view of how things should be in relationships? Is the new norm to fight? Whether with our friends, family, or significant others, what are relationships “supposed” to look like?
Join me as we explore Relationships of all types this upcoming year!
