Business Relationships are Considered Relationships

In my opinion relationships are unique and differ from industry to industry and from individual to individual. Some industries demand more formal ways of doing business allowing formal contracts to regulate the relationships. Others are more informal and rely more on principles such as trust, honesty, etc.
In an attempt to answer your question I would say that yes, they do think of business interactions as relationships.

They want to feel valued, chased...
It's just a game and you should know how to play it!
