Why does the word relationship only mean a romantic one? watch

    • Thread Starter

    There are many types of relationships like romantic, platonic, and family but when you say relationship people almost always think of a romantic one.

    I don't understand that as friendship is a relationship and being in a family is a relationship with many different people.

    You're in a relationship with your friends and your family. Romantic relationships don't have a monopoly on the word relationship.

    Films, TV and media portray a relationship to be that way.
