Dating is a risk one takes. Things tend to move too fast, and people seem to have settled on moving on with the flow.
Situationships have become the new cool thing although they are normally mistaken for relationships. Situationships are more about convenience whereas relationships are built on genuine mutual feelings and Commitment.
Many girls find themselves stuck in situationships with the hope that the guy will eventually grow feelings for them. Before you get down with a guy, you need to set clear boundaries of what the two of you are getting into. Do not assume anything. Here’s what you need to keep in mind to avoid finding yourself in a situationship:
Decide on what kind of relationship you want.
Understand what your values are and try not to change for anything or anyone. Do you want a long term relationship with the potential of marriage or you just want to have fun?
Ask yourself what kind of qualities you are looking for in a partner, what values you want them to have and what expectations you have for the relationship. If the person you are with does not meet the threshold for the things you want, it is better to just move on.
Don’t forget exactly what you need.
Don’t forget what you need from a relationship. Work towards achieving your goals. If your partner also has the same goals, then your needs would just be fulfilled.
Do what it takes to make yourself comfortable and do not compromise and put your needs aside for someone else who wouldn’t do the same for you.
Move on if your needs are not met.
If the person you have intentions of being with cannot take care of your needs, and honor them, then consider moving on. Find someone who can accommodate your needs without making you feel like you are demanding too much. Do not stick around with the assumption that with time he will change.
Know your worth.
Work on your inner self first and understand that you are worth more than what the guy out to use you sees in you. Constantly remind yourself how far you have come. Avoid men who will try to make you feel or look vulnerable in their bid to bed you.
If you don’t feel valued in that “partnership” then step away because you are so much more worthy than the other person may know.
