Doctor Cupid: 5 signs that you are in a situationship

While it may seem like an entanglement is absolutely out of the way for people in relationships, things are not always white or black. 

Some people believe that they are entitled to having more than one partner while others just want to sneak around without any consequences.

Of course, they may enjoy it, but for you who is at the opposite side of that equation, it is not as fun. Situationships are essentially relationships that have not yet been defined.

And while it can be easy to think about wanting to define the boundaries that exist between the talking stage and the relationship, it is not that easy to do so or to just ignore.

So, below are the signs that you are on the way to being in a situationship and to quickly remove yourself from it.

1. There is no consistency in your relationship

One major appeal of a legit relationship is that you can count on seeing and talking to your person regularly. Situationships lack that.

2. You never talk about the future

This is a very simple train of thought: if the relationship is not meant to last, then there is no need to discuss anything important or anything beyond the now.

If you don’t have discussions about where your relationship is going, then this could be a sign that you are in a situationship.

3. They tell you that they don’t want anything serious

The easiest way to know you’re in a situationship is when the person tells you explicitly that you are in one. A better way to confirm is if they tell you. Once this happens, then what other proof are you looking for?

4. You’re always anxious about the relationship

A sure sign that you are in a situationship is the fact that you are always anxious about everything in the relationship. You don’t quite feel like yourself and you are not sure which boundaries to cross or not.

5. You never make long term plans

People in relationships make plans weeks, months, sometimes years in advance. People in situationships have a more flexible arrangement, sometimes making plans only hours in advance.


Now that you know exactly what to look out for, you can be on the lookout even when as you enjoy the feeling of being in love with a particular person.

However, if you are comfortable with the situation, set some boundaries and get comfortable. If not, then you need to get out of that situation and find an arrangement that works for you.
