What does it take to build, maintain, improve, and, if need be, repair face-to-face relationships?

Self-insight and a sense of one's own identity;

  • Cross-cultural sensitivity — the ability to decipher other people's values;

  • Cultural/moral humility — the ability to see one's own values as not necessarily better or worse than another's values;

  • A proactive problem-solving orientation — the conviction that interpersonal and cross-cultural problems can be solved;

  • Personal flexibility — the ability to adopt different responses and approaches as needed by situational contingencies;

  • Negotiation skills — the ability to explore differences creatively, to locate some common ground, and to solve the problem;

  • Interpersonal and cross-cultural tact — the ability to solve problems with people without insulting them, demeaning them, or destroying their "face";

  • Repair strategies and skills — the ability to resurrect, to revitalize, and to rebuild damaged or broken face-to-face relation ships;

  • Patience.


Despite the facts above that people have grown panic towards online relationships lately


The online and face-to-face relationships share three similarities covering intimacy, sincerity and risks. Similarly, all types of interactions provided in face-to-face

relationships also exists in online relationships. By using interactive devices, such as web cameras, microphones and speakers, actual talking and seeing becomes possible through the internet. Deeper intimacies like serious relationships or marriage are also feasible for many internet couples.


(Dr Gavin and Dr Adrian Scott, 2005 investigated online dating sites, result proves that online relationships have a similar degree of success as real life ones )


BUT HOW? Perhaps this is called building up !!! Using technology we can see each other's faces and emotions online too.

But still this relation needs building up-following up... just like when we catch up face to face.Only thing is missing is physical contact but perhaps that will come too...would that scare you?


STAY IN TOUCH – BE KIND – SHARE – IMAGINE – LOVE - TOGETHER


Our first 'Face To Face Book' intervention was part of
TALK to ME LONDON  ( http://www.talktomelondon.org/home )
even though there is no mention of any artist, works done by artists who participated voluntarily.....

During the talk to me week ( 26 Oct- 2 Nov 2013 )
SERFs were at Bus Stop S (New Cross Road) ,
on 27th Oct and 2nd Nov @ 2-5pm

'Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere' A. Einstein

IDEA: SERFs are exploring how we can use the notion of social networks face to face relationships and informal exchange, as well as online connections.
