It’s hard to explain

When friends and family ask if you two are together you never really know what to say because for one it’s hard to explain and you also don’t know what you are.

You wonder if you should date other people

Situationships tend to feel real and more often than not you always miss out on the opportunity to meet someone who wants a real relationship.

It gives you false hope

Because you do most things ‘normal’ couples do, you end up believing that someday you two will be official. You believe that one day you’ll share pictures of one another, tell your friends about him or meet his family and it’ll never happen.

It puts your life on hold

You put in unnecessary effort into something that’ll never be more than what it is at the moment. It wastes time and money in all aspects.

He’ll ghost you

Remember he isn’t your man nor are you his woman so when he feels like disappearing for a few days without any call or text you can’t give him grief about it because at the end of it all you’re nothing to him.

You’ll feel like you’ve been played

In the end, most if not all situationships have to come to an end and that’s when you get hit by sad reality. What’s worse is that you can’t even share your heartbreak with your friends because you weren’t supposed to get attached from the get go.
