Top Definition
A false friendship that two people honor because they feel like they have to, not because they actually want to.
This generally involves a male and a female relationship in which person A likes person B and hopes to be more than friends, while the person B keeps person A there out of sheer pity, which results in person B thinking he or she has a chance with person A.
Elliot: I'm sick of my pretendship with him.

Dick: Then ditch him. You know he wants to get back together with you, and you know that you don't care about him AT ALL.

Elliot: But...

Dick: Lingering in this pretendship will do you both damage in the end. He will only think you are leading him on.

Elliot: True dat.
