2 Relationship Characteristics CP: Relationship Characteristics There are four characteristics that define intimate relationships these four are behavioral interdependence, need fulfillment, emotional attachment, and emotional availability. Behavioral interdependence refers to the common impact that people have on each other as their lives and daily activities intertwine. Through relationships with others, we fulfill our needs for Intimacy, Social integration, Nurturance, Assistance and Affirmation. Emotional attachment is feelings of love. Emotional availability is the ability to give to and receive from others emotionally without fear of being hurt or rejected. Building relationships involve a degree of risk because when building a relationship a person will share their feelings, share confidences, be intimate, and let that person in to their lives and give them trust.
