    A short term relationship can range from a couple of weeks to a couple of months. After that, it's a relationship, usually lasting at least 6 months, depending on your age. It depends on the couple.

    From my perspective, varies from a week (LOL!), to around 3 months.

    None

    It might not be the time that matters, some say short-term relationships, meaning high intimacy, high passion but low commitment basis.

    And you might be surprised, they last for years but both parties get to see each other on a low frequency account

    I'd have to say a short term relationship would be anything under about 2 months, with no emotional attachment.

    I think this depends on the context - when you are really young short term might only be a week, and long term anything over two months...when you are older short term can develop into anything under 6 months or a year.

    So, you also need to look at the emotional involvement in the relationship, quality of relationship and the relationship as a whole, rather than just length of time.
