Are you in a Situationship?
A situationship is similar to friends with benefits, you’re not officially dating — but also not not dating. It can be confusing, but a Hinge Survey says 34% of daters reported being in a situationship in 2020. Makes sense because covid didn't really allow for dating.
So now you want to get back in dating pool, but you need to end the situationship. How do you do that?
According to Jamie Lee, 21, founder of FLOX, a new TikTok-viral dating and friendship app, "it’s more likely for situationships just to fizzle out instead of there being a formal conversation to end them."
"If you’re honest and mature about the situation when you break it off, there’s nothing to be guilty about, and the person will thank you in the future for ending it when you weren’t 100% feeling it anymore."
What if it doesn't end naturally? Jamie says texting is fine as long as you're respectful and clear. Situationships are casual, so a text makes it less of a big deal. Oh and don't use emojis.
