Romantic Relationships are an important part of an individual’s life; having a partner can help us feel secure, bring joy, laughter,commitment, emotional and physical intimacy. While focusing on communication inside romantic relationships, this study is focused on the role deception to promote relational satisfaction. Deception is a conscious attempt to create or perpetuate false impressions. I bring attention to existing research about deception to understand the effects it has on how happy someone is within their relationship. This project I will talk about the multiple motives behind deception, such as lying and interpretation. It will also include intentional and unintentional motives. Essentially, deception can be a positive and negative thing, and I will discuss the best intentions for helping relationships.
