FOR those of you unfamiliar with the latest dating lingo, a “situationship” is basically a Claytons relationship. The relationship you have, when you’re not really having a relationship.

You follow?

Probably not. But that’s OK. It’s complicated.

Let me try and break it down.

By the way, you should probably get your head around the concept if you plan on heading into the modern dating jungle anytime soon. Because, word on the street is that situationships have become the new normal.

My situationship started out, innocently enough, like most new courtships. I met a lovely man. We went on a few dates. The chemistry was undeniable. So we went on a few more. And it appeared altogether reasonable that we could quite possibly find ourselves on that romantic little road to relationship-ville.

But then, something strange happened.

Well, actually. It’s what didn’t happen that led to the situationship. https://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/relationships/sami-lukis-im-in-a-situationship-and-im-not-quite-sure-what-happens-next/news-story/33c6e5fd5f838f51607f71a5555e5990?fbclid=IwAR2m5ZPtkBtrWx7rtZmQESvnsXCqEqAPkemEgCZ8ERtOcMeWZSiu9VUivYw"

Urban Dictionary defines a “situationship” as “a relationship that has no label on it…like a friendship, but more than a friendship, but not quite a relationship.” In other words, a situationship is like being friends with benefits; except, this time, there are strings attached — no matter how slight — for both parties involved. Couples engage in normal boyfriend-girlfriend activities such as going on movie and dinner dates and meeting each other’s friends. They might even have a toothbrush at their sort-of-partner’s place.

What couples in situationships do not do, however, is ask that terrifying question: “What are we?” Instead, both individuals just continue teetering and tottering on the see-saw that is their undefined relationship for months, sometimes even years."

Can you actually turn a situationship into a relationship?

Situationships turn into relationships when the pair falls in love with each other and doesn't want to be with anyone else but each other, pretty similar to what happens when anyone falls in love. There is no special technique or formula to make someone fall in love with you. It has a lot to do with how they see you, where they are in their life, what they want, etc.

You want to know what really really really does wonders? Being honest.

It might work out, it might not - it all depends on where they are in their life, what they're looking for, and how they feel about you. There's only one way to find out.

I've never heard of it being turned around, but I now know yet another one that's just about to be ruined, just like all the other ones. It always starts with this type of thinking.

A lot of situationships turn sour because of miscommunication, some of it intentional miscommunication (which is manipulation), some of it unintentional.

If women could just tell men what they want from the beginning, that would be great.
