Which of the following statements are true regarding how relationships

Customer Question

Which of the following statements are true regarding how relationships develop?
Relationships pass through the same stages at the same rate regardless of relationship type.
Perceived gain or benefit to us is the most important reason relationships begin.
People are initially attracted to others because of what they have in common with them, although most relationships grow on the basis of the differences among the participants.
Attraction is important to relationship initiation and is fairly consistent among people of the same culture in all their relationships.

If you want to communicate your feelings, it is best to:
communicate emotions you are experiencing similarly in all situations in which you experience them.
express feelings as they occur to you without censoring yourself too much.
identify the behavior that is prompting your feeling as well as clearly name the feeling you are experiencing.
be sure you are communicating feelings appropriately which means only sharing your feelings in intimate relationships.
