Social relations are the number of social interactions between individuals during a given period of time. These interactions, these momentary social interactions, can be described in many different terms, but a social relationship is the quality that results from repeated interactions. Social relationships can have a generally positive or generally negative influence or benefit, and they can be reciprocal or complementary.
Social relationships are very important at every stage of our lives because we are social beings. It is in our nature to establish and maintain social relationships. There are different types of social relationships as there are many different reasons to maintain or build them. The main reason that many psychologists know and have studied is our need to belong. This is the reason why we seek relationships everywhere we go, such as at work, at school, in our churches and religious organizations, on sports teams, in online communities, and in other social contexts.
