A quick definition:

Relationships deserve special attention because they make up one of the largest chunks of our well-being. And I don’t just mean romance. I also mean friendships, family, co-workers. While most of us are decent at interacting with other people, the sad fact is that we’ve mostly been wingin’ it. There is no rulebook to relationships. To alleviate that, I write about how to approach different aspects of the relationship process: communication, empathy, language, expectations, connection, vulnerability, listening, and so much more.
