Situationship, We’ve All Been In One, But Hadn’t Realized It

If you’ve heard of the term situationship, don’t worry – it’s only because we’re talking about a brand new term, very recently coined by Cosmopolitan. This is a word we needed badly without even realizing it.

What’s A Situationship?

If you are having trouble defining what you have when you’re dating someone and doing some of the things couples do, yet don’t feel like introducing her as your “partner”, you probably have what is now known as a “situationship”. If you’re still not sure that this is what you have, here are more details.

What Are The Signs Of A Situationship?
