Temperatures have dropped below 10 degrees all over the country. People are pulling out their warmest winter attire, but there is little one could do to combat the pre-winter blues.
Young adults have seemingly been bit by the love bug. Staying in for the night to watch Netflix and cuddle becomes the norm at this time of year. But are these couples truly lovestruck? Or is the cold weather the cause of this sudden “time to settle down” epidemic?
Behold “cuffing season” – the time period when players take a break from the game for a few months. According to urbandictionary.com, “cuffing season” is defined as “the Fall and Winter months when people who would normally rather be single or promiscuous find themselves desiring to be “Cuffed” or tied down by a serious relationship. The increase of indoor activity causes singles to become lonely and desperate to be cuffed.”
With that being said, thoroughly evaluate your current situation to figure out if you’re being cuffed or bluffed. If you don’t mind playing the game of winter boo lovin,’ then play it. However, if you are looking for a deeper connection, communicate that to your person of interest and see how they respond. If they aren’t saying what you want to hear, don’t settle. Kick him to the curb and find someone who’s willing to commit to you all year round.
