Bonding Stage This stage is considered as the final step of any good relationship that’s going to stand the test of time.

RELATIONSHIPS 5 From the movie, relationships make us stronger, and we become better people because of the responsibility it comes with. It is through relationships that we see Joe Kingman’s life being transformed from a selfish person to a responsible man. For a relationship to be effective, the first five stages of Knapp’s and Vangelisti’s model must be followed or else the last five will occur.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
