In brief: Improves connection

The essence of a relationship is the involvement/connection you have with each other. Listening strengthens relationships by supporting closer or more meaningful connections between people.
A "one-sided relationship" is an oxymoron that describes a lack of a mutually beneficial connection between people. It helps to listen well and often to each other, with openness to the other's point of view.
