Learning interpersonal communication skills to improve every part of our lives

Nonverbal communication

Leave a comment

I believe that every relationship in my life has been important in many different ways and has utilized in all sorts of nonverbal communication. One of the important relationships that I’ve developed in coming to college has been with my roommate Kathryn. We had met in our very first college class of freshman year so we were both nervous and anxious to meet new people and develop new relationships in this unfamiliar scenario. When we first met we had been sitting next to each other. We both sat down, settled in and turned to meet one another. In our first encounter we made eye contact while expressing excitement and hopes of friendship. We started off with a managed conversation with steady question asking and getting to know each other at a slow and steady rate while continuing to settle into our pre-calc class. Our social skills bounced off of one another and we began a continuous friendship basing it off of our in common classes.Ā I feel that it is really important for relationships to start them off with a strong basis of social structure and synchronization. Kathryn is now my roommate and best friend and we love each other endlessly. We have built a very strong connection through a common relation built together in the beginning of our college experiences.
