Ok so before you try and come for me…
…hear me out.
For the past week, Twitter has been talking about ‘random opinions’ on certain subjects and the topic of situationships came up – as it always does on Twitter. While a few people were for it, the huge majority was against it. Now I’m all for a good relationship, BUT after being in a situationship for a while… I’m just saying, they really aren’t that bad!
So my situationship story is probably the same as the next one, which you can check out here, but in short – we met in college, reconnected a few years after college, and been kicking it ever since.
I think what makes people so apprehensive about situationships is eventually, someone will want more and it’s usually not the guy, which means invested time and emotions have been wasted. I get it! But as my girl Megan Thee Stallion would say: “It’s a Hot Girl Summer” so why the hell not?
The beauty of situationships is that you’re not tied down by expectations. However, if you both respect each other and are on the same page with each other, then expectations can be established and should be respected.
Sentiments on situationships are all dependent upon the type of person that you are, how you view your time, and what you want your love life to be in the future. For some people, it’s an automatic no! Some can ride the wave until they crash and others… that’s how they only roll! Did I ever imagine myself being in a situationship? Definitely not – especially one that has lasted this long. But for me, it works for where I’m at in life right now and will continue to work until it doesn’t.
At the end of the day, if a situationship is something that you want to experience or try… do that! Don’t let societal pressures and comments keep you from living your best life, whatever that looks like for you!
So… situationsips! Team yes or Team no? Let me know in the comments!
