|dc.description.abstract||The purpose of this study is to weigh the potential inherent in a
postmodernist, narrative approach to relationships. The
discourse of the same orphan equality is deconstructed and an alternative
discourse of differences is suggested.
In this study, the discourse of the same orphan equality is deconstructed and
used both positions, not to disqualify this discourse
but to suggest an alternative narnlik the discourse of being different. In
in this connection the metaphor "tandem cycling" is used to describe the nature of the
suggest current discourse of relationships.
This discourse suggests that relationships such as tandem cycling may be: it may
be a wonderful ride through life. There are mountains, downhills, uphills, winds
from front and back, sunsets and wild flowers to enjoy. It's easier
times, there are hard times.
In this study, the author attempts to represent the discourse of being different as
alternative in relationships using a study from the brain to
the socialization process and various communication methods. It was also used
made from John Gray's case studies in his video to find differences between individuals
emphasize and highlight the potential and creativity that goes with it
let step. This confirms the possibilities that exist if the discourse of differences
as an alternative to the discourse of the same orphan equality. It has
gives the author the opportunity to explore new possibilities within relationships
The study also highlighted a variety of research possibilities
which creates new opportunities for other researchers to discover. The cultural
embedding discourses is a rich source of information that can make relationships creative
influence. The biological differences emphasize that each individual is unique
and therefore brings a myriad of potential with him to the relationship. It would
bring new opportunities to look at relationships with new eyes.
With this, the author wants to conclude and hopes that the study could make a small contribution to
relationships can be seen in a new light.||
