Never be fooled, there is a huge difference between a relationship and a “situationship”. Interestingly, many of us have been hypnotized to feel we are in a relationship when indeed it is a “situationship”.
A situationship is a connection generated out of a circumstance of inconvenience.
For example: A lady who enters college with no clue of where to get the needed finances to complete her 4-year course decides to strategically go in for a middle class dude who will fall for her looks and also willing to spend.
Yes, the dude may feel he has found his woman – if not marriage material. But deep down this lady’s mindset, she only is in this “situationship” to complete her course at college.
What happens with such engagements is that one partner goes missing in action (MIA) once their objectives are met. You might think they are no longer interested but in actual sense, they were not in love in the first place.

The best way to fish out a “situationship” is the priority of the partner. If they keep pushing you to satisfy a need of theirs, the kind of need that does not have your interests included, please know it is not a relationship.
Always remember that a relationship is a two-way street. In relationships both parties endeavor to satisfy the needs and wants of each other.
If one party needs a car, for example, the mutual benefit could be that both parties could use the vehicle for transportation needs. (He picks you from work at times you can’t drive, you do the same for him when he can’t drive) – Relationships water the needs and wants of BOTH partners.
Don’t get it twisted. A situationship is when a partner comes into your life with their OWN agenda. By this, they want to USE your resources to BETTER themselves. A relationship is the exact opposite of what a situationship is.
