a short written description of your personal details, interests etc. that you post online when you are trying to find new friends
Maddison, a 23-year-old photographer, was one of the first to create a friendsumé back in February of this year, posting it to FB group Truly Twenties. On a pale pink and very put-together page, she rattled off her fave TV shows, films and food, alongside a list of her chosen skills. To top it off, she added the tongue-in-cheek caption: “This is my application to be your friend.”

situationship noun [C]
a relationship between two people that is more than a friendship but not a fully committed romantic relationship
Being in a situationship is all the rage now! Less than a relationship and more than a friendship, situationships are neither here nor there. People might be in situationships during the first few dates when they are just getting to know each other. However, many situationships last longer, with both sides preferring to go with the flow instead of putting a label on the relationship.
