10 Examples of a Personal Relationship

A personal relationship is a sustained series of interactions with another person that is based on interdependence and fulfillment of social needs. These can be contrasted with other social relationships such as a boss, neighbor or coworker that may not fulfill many social needs. Personal relationships can be voluntary such as a friend that you choose to spend time with or can be involuntary such as the members of a family that you are born into. The following are common examples of personal relationships.
Boyfriend / Girlfriend / Significant Other
Common-law Spouse
Life Partner
Romantic Relationships
When a social relationship such as a boss or coworker becomes important to your social needs in an interdependent way you would typically be viewed as friends at that point.
