The Expository Essay
During life, a significant factor is the relationship with another. There are many
aspects to a relationship that will make it strong or long lasting. Looks may seem to be
important but in the long run they prove not to be. Looks can be changed through surgery
and can fade with age. There are four qualities that should be found in a good strong
relationship. These four factors will never change no matter what kind of relationship one
is in or what one looks like. The four factors that make a good relationship are
commitment, trust, caring, and communication. In any relationship, if any of these four
factors are missing then the relationship will not last long.
Commitment is an important factor in building a strong and successful relationship.
Commitment keeps a relationship together through the good and the bad times. Whether a
partner in a relationship is suffering through hard times, the couple if committed will pull
through. A strong relationship that is committed will make it through the major and the
minor crisis of life. A minor crisis that could put a strain on a relationship could be
considered as something simple such as the breaking of a date or one person having no
money. A major crisis may be one partner going off to war or having to leave town for
several months on business. If the relationship is committed then a couple will survive
these crisis. Commitment is a step in building a strong relationship.

The second part of a successful relationship is trust. Trust is like the "I love you"
of a relationship. Trust means that when one partner wants to go out for a night on the
town with his or her friends that they will not cheat. When a couple is out together for a
night that the other partner will not be flirting with other people in the room. A couple
that trusts each other will give each other space to do their own thing. Trust allows a
relationship to grow because there is not the constant worry of what the other party is
doing. Trust is when there are selected responsibilities that each partner may have and
makes sure are fulfilled. Responsibilities such as making sure the trash is taken out or the
bills are paid on time. Building trust in a relationship could even consist of making sure
that if there is a dinner date that both parties are on time. Even though destroying trust can
happen in an instant, building trust takes lots of time. Building trust in a relationship takes
time and effort while destroying it could be as simple as cheating or not showing up when
a date is scheduled.
The third part of a successful relationship is caring. There is no way to truly
describe what caring is but it is an intimate part of any relationship. Caring is a feeling or
emotion. Caring is a feeling or emotion that cannot be readily described in words but still a
feeling. Caring is missing your partner when they are away or being sad when they are not
feeling well. Caring in a relationship is an emotion that can only be described using other
emotions. When two people care for each other in a relationship form a bond which is
hard to break even when common sense tells them that they need to. This bond is so
strong that even abusive couples will stay together. The couple thinks that they care for
each other enough that the abuse does not matter. Caring is the fabric of building a strong
The fourth and most important part of a relationship is communication.
Communications is the problem solver of a relationship and could also be the destroyer of
Marvin Hinton 3
a relationship. Communication is important because the beginning of any relationship. Any
relationship starts with communication because that is how you meet the person. A
relationship will not get started if the communication is not there. Communication
separates a purely physical relationship with no meaning from a true strong relationship.
Communication in a relationship should be honest. Communication makes two people one.
When a couple knows each others likes and dislikes communication is strong.
Communication lets a couple talk about their problems and can help resolve many of them.
In a relationship with no communication a small problem can cause a rift which will lead to
a break up. This is why communication is an important part of a relationship.

Fantasy's integral role in the creation of a monstFantasy\'s integral role in the creation of a monster In the past decade, the elusive creature known as the serial killer has captured the attention of American culture. With the popular press churning out dozens of books and movies centered around the serial killer each year, the term has almost become a catch-phrase, replacing earlier terms such as \'homicidal maniac.\' Fiction writers and the movie industry use \'serial killer\' in a much more casual manner than can be allowed in a systematic
Responding to StressResponding to Stress Suppose that you are in your car in the middle of a traffic jam heading home from school after a terrible day. You feel frustrated and groan as you think about the calculus midterm you have tomorrow, which you still have to study for. Suddenly, you have to hit the brakes. Your heart starts beating faster and you insult the driver whom nearly made you crash. Are these reactions normal? Indeed they are, since they are merely examples of stress. Many everyday circumstances, suc
Perception ParadigmPerception Paradigm Many theories and much research has been conducted on contraception in general, and more recently on condoms in particular, as a result of the AIDS epidemic (Lear, 1995). Condom usage and AIDS education are essential tools for reducing the impact of the disease, yet fewer than one third of sexually active college students report consistent condom use (Seal & Palmer-Seal, 1996). It seems that sexually active individuals rarely discuss safer sex or ask about their partnerís sex
Stressstress Psychological stress is a result of many factors and should be dealt with very carefully. Stress can be defined as a set of interactions between the person and the environment that result in an unpleasant emotional state, such as anxiety, tension, guilt, or shame (swin pg 1). Another way of putting it, is that there are somethings that put certain demands on us. The effects of stress should not be limited to unpleasant emotional states. Many studies have concluded that the effects on our
Leadership Theory:Leadership Theory: According to Nathan F. Iannone, leadership can be defined as the art of influencing, directing, guiding, and controlling others in such a way as to obtain their willing obedience, confidence, respect and loyal cooperation in accomplishment of an objective. Leaders are not born...sure there are some gifts-traits-attributes, natural endowments that affect relative abilities...but they are not born, they are made. Any reasonably intelligent person with enough forcefulness to deve
Dissociative Identity DisorderDissociative Identity Disorder Max Denis April 28, 2000 From the Diagnosis and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, dissociative identity disorder (DID) is recognized as the presence of two or more distinct identities or personality states that recurrently take control of the behavior. There is an inability to recall important personal information, the extent of which is too great to be explained by ordinary forgetfulness (1994). It is a kind of amnesia that repressed all the traumatic memori
