The guy or girl might not call it this to the person they are involved in it with, but they call it so to a third party. How to identify you are in a Situationship you know very little about him, his friends, work and family… Never wants to go on a date with you both share is limited to the bedroom.
  2. Going With The Flow:
    This is the most common especially if the lady already has a boyfriend and isn’t planning on leaving him. While for the guy, this happens most of the time if you got sexual first with him before defining what the relationship is all about.

  3. Complicated:
    Another one I find interesting, this is most heard from ladies when dating a particular guy they are considering breaking up with, but she’s still sexual involved with him but actively still looking for a replacement. Another scenario for this would be that they’re having issues in the relationship and she’s considering a break-up. While if a guy says this to another girl its a big lie he just wants to smash the new girl and isn’t considering leaving his old girl.
  4. Entanglement:
    Well, this is the latest entry to terms used to define casual sexual relationships. I don’t think I need to explain just ask Jada about August then you get the picture.
  5. Distraction:
    This when used by guys, can be used in two ways for the new girl and for their main chick. When they approaching the new girl the guy would use the term he needs a distraction work and all the things happening around him, while for the main chick he uses it that the new girl is just a distraction and nothing more that he’s got his heart stuck on her. This can also be used by ladies too. When a lady tells you, she is is in a distraction of a relationship, run! she’s a profound cheater and loves that guy she calls a distraction like crazy you would end up being the actual distraction.
