QTNA: Are Situationships Replacing Monogamy?

Situationships are on a steady rise, but the grass isn't always greener on the other side.

Published September 18, 2018

There are pros and cons to every situation. The same goes for your relationship status. Whether you’re single or taken the grass might sometimes seem greener on the other side, but is it? Case and point, Situationships—that gray area in between singledom and having a full-blow bae. In 2018, situationships are the wave, just ask any millennial dabbling in the dating pool. They’re the best of both worlds and seem far less risky as far as feelings are concerned if you follow the rules 1) Don’t catch feelings. 2) Be upfront about your situationship status. 3) DON’T catch feelings.

Appealing, no?

Well… let’s put this way, not everyone likes to follow rules. Also, what about STDs? Remember those? According to Centers for Disease and Control Prevention, the United States is seeing an increase in chlamydia (eh, um, Insecure) and other sexually transmitted diseases in recent years. Young Black men and women are at higher risk at contracting these STDs than white folk. Let that sink in…

Like I said, sometimes the grass may just seem greener.

Watch Season 2 of Situationships, premiering on BET Digital September 19, to see first-hand how there’s room for risk in every relationship, even situationships.
