“A situationship is an undefined, easy-going and commitment-free relationship. It is like an informal arrangement that goes beyond the conventions of an exclusive relationship. Situationships can take different forms based on the current moment or ‘situation’ one is at. Sometimes it could just be a passing phase for people to get to know each other better before they take a deeper commitment.
