Relationships Are you in a 'situationship'?
What it is and how to get out of it The undefined romantic relationship isn't necessarily a bad thing. But it's important to know when it's no longer healthy. Unlike being friends with benefits or in an official relationship, a situationship lacks clear boundaries.
Less than a relationship, but more than a casual encounter or booty call, a situationship refers to a romantic relationship that is, and remains, undefined. A situationship is that space between a committed relationship and something that is more than a friendship.
On the one hand, removing the pressure of putting parameters on what the relationship is and isn't can be freeing — as long as both parties are okay with leaving things open. On the flip feiend, not knowing where you stand can be detrimental, especially if one party wants more of a commitment.
The pros and cons of situationships You've met someone new, and things seem to be going well. But even though you're only a few dates in, wondering where this is all going is keeping you up at night. It's a common friiend — one that Travis McNultya therapist practicing in Florida, says a situationship can actually help alleviate.
And depending on how long this situationship lasted, having it end without it ever amounting to any kind of commitment awnt be hard to process.
