This study reports the findings of the several projects initiated at the Faculty of Education , “Goce Delcev “University , Stip,  to investigate the motivation skills, but is uniquely specific to as interpersonal relationships and resources that influence the learner’s participation in the teaching/learning process in the context of online-learning and face to face learning (FtF).Uniquely it also explores e-mail romantic relationships with regard to the levels of relationship satisfaction, intimacy, "inclusion" and interpersonal attraction. Empirical research of this kind is arguably rare and will lead to a better understanding of the possibilities and limitations of a medium that could have large effects on the relationships we have in the lives of participants of computer mediated learning.
