Situationships Unveiled

Understanding the Situationship Spectrum:

Yes, you heard it right – SITUATIONSHIP.

The term emerged in recent years as a way to describe a relationship paradigm that exists in the ‘grey’ area between friendship and a committed partnership. Both the boundaries and expectations are undefined & refer to a ‘TAG’ where two people are involved in a perplexing connection, which includes some convenient aspects of a romantic relationship, such as physical or meagre emotional intimacy, however lacking the most fundamental factor of a relationship, i.e., commitment.

In a situationship, the individuals involved can spend time together, go on romantic dates, watch movies together, get physically intimate, and meet each other’s, family members. They can even share a certain level of emotional connection. However, the essential trait of being in a situationship is the absence of clear expectations or commitment, leaving the future confused and uncertain.


Why do people prefer a situationship?

There can be multiple reasons for an individual to enter into a situationship. Some have been heartbroken in the past after investing a bit too much time and energy. At the same time, some can’t handle commitments because they feel that being in a relationship is going to take away their freedom to be themselves. Generally, at the core, the situationship is fostered between two individuals with different attachment styles and are not aiming for permanency. The ones with avoidant style usually are the ones who cause the advent of situationship as they get to enjoy the lack of any strict liability/responsibility and are free to hold dear their personal autonomy. In contrast, the ones with an anxious style might suffer as they feel the insurmountable urge to control the facets of this relation, usually because of the triggers of immense unpredictability.


What to expect in a situationship?

Expecting absolutely nothing is going to be the best way to cope if you choose to be in a situationship. It means sailing a ship that would only continue to float in certain situations, not a ‘come may what’ kind of partnership.


Can a situationship later on become a relationship?

The high chances are no. Situationship start between people who subconsciously or consciously do not want a deep commitment and want a paradigm where they would never end up together. Expecting a situationship to turn into a relationship is like betting on a losing horse. It might win if the stars align, but the probability is very low.


Flourishing in a situationship

Perceiving the situationship and the people involved in it as they are and not delving into wishful thinking about the future is the key to surviving a situationship. Defining your boundaries and being mindful of your expectations and your partner’s limits is essential.

Remember, it all boils down to understanding the difference between adjustment and compromise. If you accept the way your partner is, then you try to adjust to the little things that they expect from you. Otherwise, it is bloodshed where every small gesture means compromise, resulting in a toxic setup.

At times, a situationship is the perfect state to be in as both parties explore and find themselves, with a light-hearted companionship. When you do not have much energy, care, or time to spare, however, if you realise that you are now ready for ultimate intimacy, you should either talk about your changed expectations or exit the relationship. Sometimes you may be uncomfortable with a situationship or want to be in a relationship. Life is not very easy, so it may be difficult to come to terms with our relationships and their complications.

The best way forward in these scenarios is to reach out to your friends and family and to talk to them; if that does not bode well, then reach out to a professional because, with a therapist or a counsellor, you have the space to explore yourself and be open and voice your opinion and eventually come to term with things and embrace life for what it is and move forward confidently.

We changed their lives and here they send us reasons to smile !
Priceless words of honour.

I have known Dr Chandni for only 6 months. Yet today I consider her part of my family and my being. When I met her, I was exhausted with life and with myself. Not only did her session uplift & transform my physical body but I was grounded like I havent been in 8 years. Highly knowledgeable, able to answer your deepest questions, full of light and exuberance, I havent seen any energy healing so significant and long lasting. Im privileged to receive wellness from her and I know that Im never alone. My association with her is for life and her specialness is above the heavens for me.

I was part of the session with Dr. Chandni Tugnait and so many friends asked me about my experience. The following analogy reflects some parts of the experience -The best of Buddhas disciple gave their quantifiable findings but when it came to Andanda, his closest one, he had tears in his eyes and responded in a single sentence – “I don’t know”.Buddha responded emotively, you have me in you. One has to experience it to believe in the healing process in totality.
Thanks a lot for your contribution Chandni

At times i wonder where does she keep it all. Such compassion – non judgmental, ever accessible, invaluable. It’s got to be a fountain within her that flows incessantly for the wary soul. No matter what your wound is, the magical waters of this fountain can cure all. And it was magic that got me to this fountain. For I had neither met her nor known her, at-least not in this lifetime! The first time i spoke to her, her compassion cut through my dense energy.

It was indeed a great honor for me to be trained by Ms. Chandni on my first visit to India. Not only did she teach us techniques on improving our proficiency in the English Language but also helped us to be able to communicate effectively with people from different cultures. The sessions with Ms. Chandni are always fun & informative. Even after hours of training with her, there is no sign of tiredness or lethargy. I extend my gratitude to you for teaching us how to be BETTER THAN THE BEST!!

Robbi Adhilni

Every teacher educates but only a few enlighten and Chandni ma’am is one of them. Besides having outstanding teaching methods, she is also very skilful and enthusiastic. And the best part is she never settles for what she and her students have accomplished. I owe a lot to her in terms of motivation, enlightenment and most importantly for making me a good human being. Her words of motivation “YOU ARE BETTER THAN THE BEST” always are a major source of ENCOURAGEMENT..

Ms. Chandni is a fine young lady who simply touched my heart during my visit to India. Although she is my daughter’s age but the ease with which she handled our group of 40 odd people from different countries and different cultures, left me spellbound. English was never a problem for me but this young girl, who I proudly call my teacher, taught me some very interesting things. I wish you the best of luck in everything that you do. Smile as often as you can. May the Lord bless you!

I’m really thankful to Chandni Ji for bringing the awareness in me and helping me in empowering myself through the various workshops conducted by her. Not only am I more confident and happy now but also more capable of helping others by healing different issues in their lives. Thanks for always being there to guide me.

I’m really glad I attended the Serenity Surrender Basic Workshop with Chandni Ma’am. I’ll be indebted to you all my life for showing me the path of self empowerment. I had put myself in the gentle and capable hands of my guide and mentor ‘Chandni Tugnait Sharma’ and found that my opinion of myself, and my beliefs in the cycles of karma changed forever. The sessions and workshops have helped me develop my full potential, unlock hidden talents, and create more compassion and love for myself and others. Love You Ma’am.

I shall be eternally grateful to my sister-in-law for helping me uncover the fantastic laws of Universe and exposing me to the world of great mysticity and grandeur. Nothing seems impossible for me now. I get all that I desire and much more. One workshop changed so much for me. I, now, truly believe that nothing is unachievable in this abundant Universe.
