It seems like every time a make a little trade someone, decide not to go to war, or decide not to stop trading that someone decides to hate on me. Also, if any war is declared it ruins my relations with more then one civ. I've got to the point where dilpomatic victories don't seem to be happening and I can't even manage any alliances. How can I up my diplomacy? I know that wars don't help but, god damnit, you need to expand sometimes and if people are in your way its either war or remain a small crappy civ for the rest of the game. Any thoughts? Can someone advise me here?
