Best Situationship Memes That Understand the Pain of “What Are We?”

Love may be blind, but the conditions in which it happens are fickle. It speaks volumes about the dating scene that things like ‘the one who got away’ are so common, and having a roster of blocked exes even more so. 

‘Situationship’ is such a contemporary word that it sometimes gets a red squiggly line under it when you type it. However, ask a millennial or Gen Z about their feelings on the idea, and their response may well start with the Feel Good Inc. laugh. At this point, it’s practically a rite of passage to get into a doomed romantic entanglement where one or both people aren’t willing to admit their feelings, leaving a big old mess at the end of it.

The phenomenon has been widely talked about on social media in recent months, with many pointing to 2019 as a vintage year for three month situationships that required years of therapy. That being said, this cursed relationship category has been inspiring memes long before that. If you can relate to anything on this list, apologies. Frustrating as it is, time heals those wounds better than texting them at 3am does.
