I usually make a joke to a new acquaintance - usually a play on words joke - nothing perverted or anything. Since I work with chemistry students I might say that the reagent sounds like an agent that lost his job and ten got it again (re-agent). or something of the sort and I might even make a joke using their name especially if they have a title like Smithen...I can ask, 'How many people have been Smitten by you?' Depending on the persons response- their demeanor, body language, ect. I would usually be able to tell if we are compatible companions...and then of course we build on trust.

I try to be polite and welcoming. More importantly, I try to think positively about others and find the good in them. It keeps me calm on the inside and friendly on the outside.

Respect for each other's differences and thoughts I think is a big key in establishing a good, solid relationship. Another would be open communication. In order to have a healthy relationship, there shouldn't be this fear of saying anything to your partner.

I believe communication is a key factor in every relationship. A lot of misunderstanding happens when we miss understanding what people say.

What people say is not limited to the words that come out of the mouth; language is crucial too. So while technology offers us the electronic means to reach out to others, the face-to-face encounter is always best, especially for our more treasured relationships.

To maintain a good relationship believe in moving on and forgiving.Sometimes to keep a relationship intact and happy I forget and forgive the past misgivings or differences and embrace the person as such.
What is the most special thing I did today- I was MYSELF. Happy and in love and unapologetically myself.

I believe communication is the key in any good relationship, whether it is friendship or romantic in nature. Trust is also very important. I have one person that I would trust before all others. Not to say that I do not have friends, she is just the one that I know I can tell anything to and there is no judgement.

Sincerity goes a long way - you have to truly care, talk about important things, and be considerate. Many people don't really do sincerity anymore, which is why I find it difficult to establish relationships.

I find that truly listening to what others are saying is key to establishing a good relationship. Too often we get caught up in our own thoughts that we don't listen to what the other person is trying to communicate.
Interested in books that help one's spirit move beyond the ordinary.

You can establish a good relationship with being honest and proving to be loyal. You have to earn the trust of your friend and to always be there for them.

I agree. Another thought is lingering in my mind. It is far easier to establish a good relationship than to sustain it. :roll:

I think trust and commitment are definitely big parts to a good relationship. In order to have a good relationship, relationships require being about to trust the person and knowing they are going to come through on what they say.
