Long time ago there used to be real relationships. The ones that made single people crave to get into a relationship. Nowadays we just have situationships instead of relationship. A situationship is almost like dating but it ain’t .Chances are if you have been dating recently you have been in a situationship without even realizing
SIGNS YOU ARE IN A SITUATIONSHIP
YOU AREN’T EVEN GOING ON DATES ANYMORE.
You’ve been seeing each other for so long that having day outs have turned into movie and series marathon.When you go out it ain’t as fun as it used to be.
YOU HAVE NO TITLE.
When someone asks you what you are, you reply awkwardly with responses like “we’re still just seeing each other ” or “we’re taking it one day at a time and going with the flow.” It reaches a point even you can’t say what you are in the relationship. You aren’t his gf/bf,fwb or friend.You are just there😔
YOU AVOID DISCUSSING THE FUTURE.
Talking about your long game in life, the one and two month plan and relationship goals are practically alien subjects. You don’t know where you stand and you avoid discussing it at all costs.You living the days as they come.
YOU MAKE FUTURE PLANS WITHOUT THINKING OF THEM.
When yu think of how you are going to spend your day you rarely consider him/her in the mix.Its just you doing you until you meet again.
YOU HAVE FEELINGS, BUT NOT LOVE.
You care about the person but you haven’t broken the barrier to truly let your heart be involved fully.You just have a strong liking towards them.
YOU STILL ATTEND EVENTS SOLO.
Weddings, Christmas parties, birthdays- all attended alone. You just riding solo to all events and it isn’t that you haven’t thought about it, it’s just that you’ve convinced yourself “you’re not there yet” even though you’re there in every other way.
YOU’RE NOT DATING ANYONE ELSE.
It’s as if you’re exclusive to someone, but you’re not really. Your relationship needs are being met by one person, so you’re not dating anyone else even though there’s nothing holding you back from doing so.
YOU HAVE SLEEPOVERS ROUTINELY.
You don’t just leave after sex; you actually spend the night and probably even have coffee and breakfast together in the morning. You might even have a toothbrush at their place.
TEXTING IS YOUR PRIMARY FORM OF CONTACT.
And it’s pretty casual. There’s no routine “good morning, babe” wake-up, but rather just small talk until you make your next plan for Netflix and chill.
YOU HAVEN’T MET THEIR FRIENDS.
Your close knit friends (squad) know that you’re seeing someone, and have been for a while, but have never actually met them.
YOU’RE BOTH PLAYING CHICKEN.
You’re basically in a Mexican standoff and each of you is avoiding bringing up the actual status of your relationship likely because you’re both scared of what might happen. Either you both will agree to move forward to the next phase, or one of you will back out. I hate to break it to you, but this could go on and on, like the song that never ends. Eventually, one of you is going to need to break the ice and it’ll make or break whatever has been happening. Or you can just keep going as is, that’s totally cool too. At least now you now know what to call your situationship
