The difference between good faith and bad faith relation, due to the transactional nature of relations vs the destination of the relation.

When two people have a relationship just to maintain a business or when one of them fakes having feelings for the other just for the sake of saving their business.
A man thinking to himself: " My business is about to collapse, I should come up w something... ' EUREKA!' I will approach my dumb female business partner."

Man: Hey lets hang out?

Dumb woman: SURE! ( in a happy go lucky fashion)

Man: You know, I always thought you are quite interesting and beautiful... I like you a lot. Would you like us to get to know eachother well? Lets have dinner tonight.

Dumb woman: I actually like you too, OK!

(then they end up sleeping and in the following days become a "couple" woman constantly keeps taking pics w her arm wrapped around him head tilted on his cheek.)

(Another girl that was ditched by the cowardice relationshop guy) : Wow, what a pathetic relationshoper of a guy he is.
