6 Reasons Why Situationships Are Greater Than Relationships

September 1, 2020

I know I already said this about situationships and that kind of puts it in a bad light. But a wise person once said anything that has disadvantages has advantages so today I am coming through with the advantages.

1. You are basically taking a relationship with this person for a test run.

And if you don’t like what you see, you can return it and move on with your life.

2. You can cheat and thunder will “not really” fire you.

3. You can take a leave and come and pick it up from where you dropped off.
