Relationship Development. Think about the progression of relationships in your life. How is your communication different when you first meet a stranger, when you get to know the person and find something in common, and when you get to be good friends? Does it change significantly if you establish an intimate relationship with that person? Have you experienced the dialectical tensions described by Baxter and Rawlins? How have you resolved them? Have you known people whose relationships broke apart because they could not resolve dialectical tensions? Share your views on these issues.
