In the course of globalization, the relationships between Chinese and American become closer and closer, and the communication between citizens of both countries is more and more frequent. However, because the culture of Chinese is much different from that of American, so do their attitude towards their family, friends, colleague and boss, and their principles and ways to deal with their interpersonal relationships. In order to make this kind of cross-culture communication go on much more smoothly, it is necessary to explore and learn their differences of interpersonal relationships. Thus, this paper will make a comparison between Chinese and American interpersonal relationships from three aspects, they are the interpersonal relationships existed in family, friends, and working place, and analyze the reasons that contribute to these differences.
