Aaron Lai, 14 A pleasant and enjoyable relationship requires communication, displaying politeness rather than discourtesy; trust, taking the time to confide in each other; respect, patience, compromise and lastly tolerance. Vishal Mirpuri, 16 After many hours of meditating in secret Buddhist temples in the peaks of Tibet, then observing many couples and their way of life through secret video and microphone recorders, I have come to the conclusion that the secret to a good relationship is so secret, that nobody knows it! Joyce Wu, 17 The secret is having mutual respect for each other and truly listening to each other. We should not stand in each other's way, but stand with each other, helping if we can, watching if we can't. Also, the ability to maintain open and honest communication is important. Katrina Kwok, 18 Maintaining a good relationship is a two-sided thing. I'd talk with her often by phone or dating. I would ask how she was and share my joys and sorrows. If she didn't contact me for a quite long time, I'll get in touch with her. Otherwise, a wonderful relationship could disappear for ever. Christina Lai, 15 Any successful relationship relies on personal communication. It doesn't take much - a few words via e-mail, phone or a letter to show your care and concern. Being honest and sincere to each other is also very important. I believe that a relationship based purely on materialistic goods like money or gifts is not worth having at all.
