Anyone who watched MTV’s teen dramedy series, Awkward, is familiar with the cringe-worthy experience of defining the relation (DTR). For some, this nausea-inducing experience is best to be avoided.

Instead, people are satisfied with the label-less gray area known as a Situationship.
This type of non-relationship — probably the ugliest creature in the dating world — is the romantic purgatory where one or both parties can’t or won’t commit.

Maybe you have tried to DTR, but the other person was not having it. Yikes. At least Four of Diamonds’ “Name On It” proves that you are not alone.

Every time I tell you that we’re done, I’m faking
