Let's Talk! : Situationships

Starting something new on here called ‘Let’s talk’ so I can make more chatty/talky posts instead of the usual outfit posts. Since valentine’s day was yesterday, I thought I’d talk about something relating to that somewhat. Today’s topic, as you can probably already tell, is on situationships.

Someone asked me what situationships were the other day so I’m here to explain J. I think this picture sums it up pretty well...

Basically, if you are asking yourself the same questions as Childish Gambino did at the end of Heartbeat, you’re probably in a situationship. Situationships are that purgatory between relationships and single life. It’s become so prevalent in our generation to get into these set ups that there have been valentine’s day cards made specifically for this:

I found myself wondering what exactly do people do on valentine’s day when they are in situationships?? If you know, drop me a comment.

That aside, these mostly arise when a guy wants to be with a girl but is too scared to commit or when he only wants that one thing and so leads her on. I’m not saying girls can’t do the same thing but realistically, guys are in the majority here.  Unless there is potential for progression into an actual relationship (which is unlikely as I said, the guy is too scared to commit), then someone will end up getting hurt as they’ll probably feel that it was something more that it was. To help all you ladies know if you’re in a situationship, so you can get out of it (obviously if you like your current situation, continue on but don’t say I didn’t warn you), here are some signs:

  • -       He says he’s not ready to be in a relationship
  • -       He says he’s scared of getting hurt
  • -       He doesn’t show you off or talk to his friends about you
  • -       He doesn’t let you meet his friends
  • -       You don’t really seem to go on dates if they don’t involve a bed
  • -       He wants to Netflix and chill
  • -       He says he doesn’t like labels
  • -       He wants to go with the flow
  • -       He doesn’t want you to talk to anyone else but still no labels!

Basically, if your guy does all the above, I’m sorry but you’re in a situationship

Moral of the story: Don’t lead people on, let your intentions be known from the start. And if you’re in a situationship and you don’t like the situation, get out before you get hurt.

(P.S ..Obviously this post isn't too serious and it's not personal, don't take everything I've said here to heart. I thought it would be a fun topic to start on. Let me know if you want to address anything else either on here or hit me up on one of my other forms of social media)
