Re: What Is The Difference Between A Relationship And A Friendship? by Orikinla(m): 5:00pm On Jul 23, 2011
You have to define the different kinds of relationships.

In romance, you can have a relationship without friendship.

You can have a friend you can confide in and yet be dating someone you cannot confide in.

If you cannot confide in a person, that person cannot be a friend.

A man may be in a relationship with a woman, but he would not allow her into the privacy of his home.
They meet and date outside his home.
And even when he brings her home, he will be reluctant to leave her alone in his house while he is at work or away.

But if she is his friend, he will even give her the keys to his home and treat her like a member of his family.


Friendship lasts longer than relationship.

Lovers may break up over demands, but friends do not break up over Black Berry or other selfish wants and vanities.

A girlfriend stopped talking to a guy, because he refused to buy her a BlackBerry Bold 2.
So, she is not a friend.

Many guys and babes are in relationship without being friends.

A playmate or sex partner may not be your friend.

In friendship you often do things for each other without asking for payment in cash or kind.

It is always best to date the person who is your friend first before having a romantic, Intimate or platonic relationship with the person.

Most relationships are shallow, but friendships are deeper, better, healthier, stronger and safer,

Lovers may come and go, but friends are forever.

Re: What Is The Difference Between A Relationship And A Friendship? by denny4ril: 8:19pm On Jul 23, 2011
friendship is the basis for a relationship. If two people are not really friends, they can never get along in a relationship. that is the plain truth.most people who were friends and end up in a relationship and later marriage do have better understanding of each other and settle quarrels amicably than casual friends that hook up all of a sudden and tie the knot without getting to know each other's weaknesses and strenght. if you get this fact right, your relationship will be great.

Relationship can exist without friendship but friendship co-exist with relationship and could be categorised into genuine or romantic relationship

@orikinla, some of the things you posted were quite funny:

Orikinla:

In romance, you can have a relationship without friendship.

pls dont confuse "booty calls/fwb" etc with ROMANCE. there can be NO romance without friendship. what you see out there are people "pretending" to be romantic, while in reality, they are only after the coochie or some financial relief

You can have a friend you can confide in and yet be dating someone you cannot confide in. If you cannot confide in a person, that person cannot be a friend.

are you saying that the basis of friendship is: to confide in someone?! what about people who are "drinking buddies", "clubbing friends" or "work mates"? are these less than friends because they dont know what i did last summer?! lol
if you think that you need to tell your deepest secrets to people , in order for them to be your "friends" then we must live in different worlds.
BUT HEY, I CONFIDE IN MY LAWYER/BANKER AND THEY SURELY AINT MY FRIENDS!!!!!!

A man may be in a relationship with a woman, but he would not allow her into the privacy of his home.
They meet and date outside his home.
And even when he brings her home, he will be reluctant to leave her alone in his house while he is at work or away.

are you now claiming that you should trust ALL your friends OR all the girls you are dating?! there is huge difference between friendship and trust. !

But if she is his friend, he will even give her the keys to his home and treat her like a member of his family.

would YOU give the keys to your house to ALL your friends?! i think not!
you can loose trust in your friends AND STILL be friends with them. cant you?

Lovers may break up over demands, but friends do not break up over Black Berry or other selfish wants and vanities./quote]

are you saying that you never fall out of friendship with people for silly reasons?!

A girlfriend stopped talking to a guy, because he refused to buy her a BlackBerry Bold 2.So, she is not a friend.


and she is NOT a gf either, she is a LovePeddler who is trying to get paid, masquerading as being in a romantic r/ship!lol

Many guys and babes are in relationship without being friends.

as i previously said, these are called many things but a ROMANTIC r/ship! but hey, some people out there will tell you they LOVE you before even getting to know your name, if anyone is foolish enough to believe them then thats all on them. if there is no FRIENDSHIP between you and that person then there is ABSOLUTELY no way you can move on to being in a romantic R/ship. . . . . . . . unless of course you are there for other reasons (aka money/status etc) or foolish enough to believe that this is real romance.
QUESTION: how can he be in a romantic r/ship with you if he knows nothing about you?!
ANSWER: your tittay, coochie OR money is the attraction, so there is nothing else that needs to be known!"

A playmate or sex partner may not be your friend.

they have what is a called a se.xual R/SHIP where the basis of their friendship is ONLY SEX. this is a complete different type of r/ship than a ROMANTIC one, dont mix the two!

In friendship you often do things for each other without asking for payment in cash or kind.

in romantic r/ship TOO. the ones who are in r/ships and their partner demand for either payment in cash or kind are fooling themselves into believing they are in a romantic r/ship while in fact, its a business transaction.

It is always best to date the person who is your friend first before having a romantic, Intimate or platonic relationship with the person.

no, ITS NECESSARY, big difference!!!!

Most relationships are shallow, but friendships are deeper, better, healthier, stronger and safer,


if/when people are jumping in sex.ual r/ship with stranger then yes BUT lets all not forget that NOT ALL FRIENDSHIP ARE DEEP/BEST/STRONG or SAFE

Lovers may come and go, but friends are forever.
   

really?! you mean to say that all your friends are forever?! shouldnt you equally say friends MAY come and go as well?!
you are talking as if friends cant become enemies, lol!

Good question followed by Impressive responses. Relationship and friendship do not mean exactly though both are related kind of having a difference without distinction. Relationship must precede friendship. We cann't be friends without first having a relationship.
