Each person will be concerned with making positive impressions with one another. The physical appearance plays a big role in making a favorable impression during the first meeting. Such physical appearances may include the way of dressing, the perfume they use as well as the overall appearance. There are skills involved in the way one presents him or herself. In business relationships, the parties ask one another about professions, demographics as well as other shared interests (Perlman & Vangelisti 567). In my situation, I was a bank clerk and saw an attractive girl within my job place who was one of our customers. I just saw her within the bank’s premises and planned to approach her the next time she visited the bank. She came and I decided to come out of the counter to meet her, I greeted her and asked her name and thanked her for being our esteemed client. We planned to meet briefly at a certain place three days later. That marked the initiation stage of our relationship.This stage is all about investigating and exploring further to know each other better. This stage is also called the probing stage and is characterized by each person analyzing the other for more information. This analysis is to determine whether there exists a common interest as a way of assessing whether there is a possibility of starting a serious relationship. In most cases, relationships terminate hereafter the parties find out that no common interest exists. In a business relationship, partners explore one another of any information that will add value to the partnership and assess whether the relationship will succeed (Perlman & Vangelisti 467). In my case, I met with the lady as we had planned during our brief meeting. We went to a cafeteria and shared a cup of tea as we discussed our likes and dislikes, interests among other factors.
