We all have relationships. Some can be good, some can be bad.
I like to get on well with the people I meet. I don't like a lot of tension.
Relationships are better when you have things in common with your friends, like sports, going out and other common friends.
We don't always hit it off with otehr people. Sometimes relationships take a while to warm up.
Some relationships have their ups and downs. You might be friends one minute and fighting the next. How often did I fight with my sisters.
People often drift apart if they don't keep in contact. Even couples drift apart and end up getting divorced.
Successful relationships often take years to build. They require a lot of hard work.
I remember having a long-distance relationship with a girl when I was younger. We met in Australia but she lived in another country so we could only communicate by phone. No Skype in those days.
We have since lost touch but I still have some fond memories of our time together. I really enjoyed her company.
Not all relationships are good. In fact a healthy relationship can turn unhealthy very quickly.
You either break up with someone or you have a falling out with a close friend.
And what about working relationships? You know, the ones we have with our collegues at work. It's always positive to have a good working relationship at work.
Anyway, I hope we can have a teacher-student relationship.
