What is Cuffing Season?
How DO You Know It's Cuffing Season?
- Warmer weather and longer days begin to become shorter and chillier
- Pumpkin Spiced Lattes are added back onto Starbucks menu
- "Netflix and Chill" becomes more appealing on a weekend then a quick trip to your local beach bar
- Holiday party take over calendars throughout the remainder of the year
These are not the only events that hint we are in the prime of cuffing season, but they are most prevalent. You'll also start to notice a change in behavior in those around you. Friends begin to align themselves with suitable partners and the "going out" texts become fewer and further between. This is common, but nothing to worry about. After all, you may be finding yourself snuggled with someone new, rather than waiting for texts about exciting weekend plans.
Why People Want to Be Cuffed?
- Shorter days make nights longer and more lonely
- Someone to keep you warm as the temperature drops
- Companionship for holiday events
- Reasons to avoid family criticism and intrusive questions
If you know cuffing season eventually comes to an end, why bother wasting your time? Companionship is an important part of life - whether you receive it from family, friends, pets, or even a significant other. And while we are at our loneliest and most vulnerable, you gain a friend and a partner. With that being said, who is to say that cuffing season will not introduce you to someone worth keeping around as spring nears closer? Sometimes those long, chilly nights ignite a flame that even the summer heat cannot compete against. But, that is for you to decide!
In the meantime, don't let the big chill make you bitter this cuffing season.
