Is it a casual relationship? Is it friends with benefits? Or it just a relationship with no properly defined boundaries?

In this Valentine's Day special episode of News & Views, we are discussing situationships – the newest Gen Z buzzword that's plastered all over the internet.

"Situationships are with people that you like, you respect, you want to hang out with. But, it is a situationship until you sit down and have the talk, that we are moving on to what is normatively known as a serious relationship," says 24-year-old Saptarshi Basak.

"If we don't have that talk, anything before that is a situationship," he adds.

"The good kind of situationships have accountability, because even if you aren't exclusive, you can't screw the other person over, and not be held accountable for your actions," says 22-year-old Pranay Dutta Roy.

But for Zijah on the other hand says, situationships are not a new concept. "We used to call it 'go with the flow'." There's just a word for it now.
