Compose a 1250 words assignment on stage of a relationship: coming together and falling apart. Needs to be plagiarism free! In most cases, as I noticed and will describe thereafter, some stages took place simultaneously.
The ten stages as conceptualized by Knapps Model of Relational Development are a process. Knapp holds that a relationship starts with initiation stage. Usually, initiation stage involves a short first acquaintance in which the two parties make or get first impressions of each other. In my initiation stage with Jane, we met at a round table where she chaired a session in our art club contest conference. For the first time in my life, I found myself participating and dominating the session regardless of George’s presence. George was the most active member in our club when it came to sharing ideas. I was an average participant, but not on this particular case. Jane, as the chair, could appreciate my contribution and from that moment I liked her. Realised I liked her ability to control the session and her level of intelligence. I felt free to approach her afterwards.
The second stage is an experiment .in which as Knapp (1984) argues, involves exchange of questions. This stage in our relationship came in hours. Five hours after the session that Jane chaired that day, I got an opportunity to meet her in person and congratulated her for her boldness during the session. She appreciated it and probed for more information regarding me. I realised she was not only beautiful but had a warm personality. Something made me to want to stay around her or looking at her. she was attractive. I took it upon myself to give her my contacts and from then we kept communicating on phone. We shared our social media information and many niceties online and by phone. Afterwards we arranged for a date meeting and it succeeded. .
