Situationship – When you are together but not really together-together like that. You can be physically naked with them but your emotions dey wear cloth.

And since it’s a ball of confusion, here are the signs you need to see so you can be released from bondage.

1) She’s not doing the “Know You” challenge with you.

Couples do cute cringey stuff together. It is known.

2) Birthday gifts include love and light and thoughtfulness.

If she’s not spending on you, you know the drill.


3) She’s not sending you “hey, big head.”

Reddest flag.


4) She’s not showing you pepper.
