are friends before and the ppl who are enemies before. The previous relationship
matters. If you are friends, in a close personal way, but not you are not. And you
get into the conflicts that might be way worse. In another case, you understand
and expect your enemies to disagree with you and dislike you.

are some relationships are there for conflicts and competitions. What kinds of
relationship actually make and for conflicts? Politics, or governing, competitions
games, boxing, lawyers (case depending), in which you interacting people by

but there is something else above that, which really makes for the social
interaction. So what is the something else? There are informal rules to
create feelings of the parties.
