A word that covers all manner of sins. As negative as that sounds it is very important to highlight the need to define relationships more often than not, given the current changes our emotional states are going through.
In my mind the word relationship cannot be used independently to describe the emotion or connection between Individuals or entities.

Today there are so many other connections that exist between people due to our need to Co-habitat as a group in a geographical environment. This makes it essential for us to define the nature of emotion or connectivity so as to let the entire society understand the emotion involved. How often do we hear this in the movies “They are in a relationship “ The moment we hear that we assume that to be one of love and it also becomes a convenient mask for people to hide their emotions under. This leads to a lot of confusion and emotional stress as the expectations are not clearly defined even amongst the people involved .Of course it is easier said than done unlike in a Business relationship, where we know who the buyer or seller, client or service provider and again if you notice it is the understanding of these roles well which makes the relationship a good one or a bad one. The point is we are unable to do this very effectively where emotions that are not clearly defined are involved.

This obliviates the need to fall into a larger or a pre defined role which will effectively be the poison for the same relationship because that may not be the exact emotion...
