Situationships: Millennial Web Series Illustrates New Dating Standard
We’ve all had that moment where we’ve been dealing with someone, got caught up, and ended up too afraid to ask the infamous “what are we?” question. Trust us, we’ve all been there. This phenomenon that has been taking the millennial dating scene by storm is known as a “situationship,” and it’s becoming the new standard.
Enter new web series Situationships, a smart and sexy dramedy that exposes the twists and turns of millennial dating. (Or rather – lack thereof.) Created by Cylla Senii (who also serves as director and executive producer), it highlights 8 young people in New York City who find themselves “talking” to people, dating people, having relations with people, but ultimately having no title with their partners. They aren’t in your traditional “relationship” – they are actually in a “situationship.”
Binge-watch the first season and subscribe to the Situationships YouTube which boasts over 200,000 collective channel views, and stay connected by following them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
About the Show
Situationships is a fresh and provocative, yet perfectly relatable dramedy that showcases the ultimate reflection of the dating landscape for today’s millennial generation. A topic that’s often experienced, Situationships is about a group of young adults journeying through life, love, and the complicated “relationships” they encounter.
We follow a dynamic cast of characters that display the following archetypes of society including the “Good Girl” who always dates the wrong guy, the “Player Player” who oozes confidence and never settles down, and the “Miss Independent” who is too cynical for a boyfriend. There’s also the “Guy in the Friend Zone” who never gets any love, the “Man Eater” who is bold and enjoys her polygamous lifestyle, the “Side Guy” who is happy with no commitments, the “Single Lady” who tries too hard to get a man and the “Perfect Man” who’s good at heart but has a special secret.
