"Relations" what do they mean nowadays for men and women?

As for me relations is a very important part of our life. No matter we are talking about relations with parents, relatives, friends, etc. All our life we are in relations and we have to manage with many difficulties. But if the relations with some person are not important we want just to leave or try to avoid this person. And when we find them important we will be trying and doing our best to improve them, to understand each other, to find different ways to let relations last longer or even forever...

In this context, you may be referring to 'relationships' as opposed to 'relations'.  'Relations' most commonly refers to interactions between large groups such as 'international relations' or 'diplomatic relations' while 'relationships' refers to interactions between individuals or small groups.
