I will admit, i have a big commitment issue. Does anyone else experience this? Let me explain.
Around last year I used to have a netflix account, and i was very happy with it. I was also using crunchyroll as a free member at the same time. I started to feel unsatisfied with Netflix, so I decided to just go for it and got premium for crunchyroll. I had a wonderful 4 months with it, watching shows like Kill la Kill, Non Non Biyori, Witch Craft Works, and many other shows. Later for reasons i can't remember, I somehow ended up cancelling my premium and became a hulu plus member. I had a great time catching up on prime time shows, and watching some anime like Hataraku Maou Sama, Soul Eater Not, and Date A Live.

Though that time was rather short, because within a month I decided to become a funimation member. I watched the dub for shows like Hataraku Maou Sama and Date a Live. I also watched psycho pass and many other shows. I'd say my time with funimation reminded me of the joy i felt from crunchyroll. At some point during the summer i somehow ended up returning to netflix. But I will admit i did something despicable. At the same time i was enjoying netflix, I was also having a fun, if somewhat frustrating experience, with my anime network subscription, enjoying Sabagebu, K-On!, and others.

Before i returned to college, I decided to change myself, and decided to get an Amazon Prime membership,since it with its own video streaming service, I wanted to try to stick with it. Of course that would mean i would have to get rid of Netflix and anime network. With Amazon i was mostly enjoying HBO shows, movies, and a very limited selection of Anime, while also using free crunchyroll. I thought this would satisfy me, and i would be able to stay committed. But then i heard of two shows, WIXOSS and Ore Twintail Ni Narimasu. I don't know what it was about those shows, but it made me want to go back to funimation. After a week of temptation i Caved and returned to funimation for about two months. I was able to time it so my subscription ends tomorrow after finishing twintails. I was also able to enjoy A Certain Magical Index, Railgun, and Excel Saga with funimation.

I was about to let it end tomorrow, and maybe try again with crunchyroll. However funimation announced their winter line up, and now I'm having second thoughts. I also remembered that HBO Go's streaming service is due out later this year, which has my curiosity. While all of this is happening I forgot i still have Amazon Prime.

Overall I'm just one unfaithful person, torn between all these choices, and don't know what to do. Anyone else ever experience problems like this?

Wow. Anime caused you all this? I've never seen that problem before until now.

Try sticking to one by choosing 3 or 4 favorite shows and which everyone has the most, stick with it.

I still can't see why you can't enjoy them all?

Stick with Crunchy. For the shows that's not on Crunchy, just watch them in other free streaming websites. Then keep track of 'em on MyAnimeList.

I was expecting something much different with a title like that lol. Anyhow, it does suck how Crunchyroll doesn't have everything, but they do have most of the good ones. I tried Funimation once but Soul Eater Not! wasn't reason for a sub alone.

Crunchy is my main girl while Hulu is my side chick, but I recently saw a girl named Funimation pass by and she looked pretty interesting.

I don't know about being "unfaithful", but, even though I met Crunchyroll first, I'm locked up with Funimation for the long-term. Lately though, I haven't been seeing Funimation as much, but I do visit Crunchyroll as often as I can. Probably because they always bring up new and interesting topics everyday. I've been considering going long term with Crunchyroll too, but I don't want to disturb what we already have. Besides, Crunchyroll and Funimation are pretty friendly with each other, so I don't think either one minds. I couldn't stand Hulu though. Constantly bringing up business and pushing products on me. ALL THE TIME! Hulu wouldn't stop, so I just stopped seeing Hulu.

Uh, are you seriously concerned about your 'loyalty' to these, er, companies?
I get the sense you legitimately think you've committed a sin. Seriously, at first I thought you were a playboy or something.

I guess it doesn't matter, but the concept of feeling "unfaithful" to my subscriptions seems totally foreign to me.
I can, however, sympathize with the feeling of being limited in choices, especially when it comes to anime. To be frank, I think you're best bet would be to get a torrent or irc client and become a pirate, but if that strikes you as too unethical then take the plunge and get multiple subscriptions. That, or settle for low-quality streams from youtube, onepieceofbleach, and other free stream sites.

There may be other options, but in that case I don't see them.
