Sexual orientations and sexual identity are developing increasing nuance that cannot be explored adequately due to social prejudices making a free flowing discussion unsafe.
The concept of interpersonal relationship involves social associations, connections, or affiliations between two or more people. They may may range from fleeting to enduring. This association may be based on inference, love, solidarity, regular business interactions, or some other type of social commitment.
Interpersonal relationships vary in their degree of intimacy or self-disclosure, but also in their duration, in their reciprocity and in their power distribution, to name only a few dimensions. The context can vary from family or kinship relations, friendship, marriage, relations with associates, work, clubs, neighborhoods, and places of worship. Relationships may be regulated by law, custom, or mutual agreement, and form the basis of social groups and of society as a whole.
