Cuffin’ season

November 10, 2017

Well ladies and gentlemen, the days are shorter and the nights are getting colder which could only mean one thing: cuffing season. Urban Dictionary defines cuffing season as, “During the fall and winter months people who would normally rather be single or promiscuous find themselves along with the rest of the world desiring to be “cuffed” or tied down by a serious relationship. The cold weather and prolonged indoor activity causes singles to be lonely and desperate to be cuffed.”

From November until March, instead of putting on a sweatshirt, you con someone into an unnecessary temporary relationship to keep you warm. Sure it sounds relatively harmless if both parties are not looking for anything serious, but not so harmless if one of you gets attached and the other leaves as soon as the snow melts. So yeah it’s cuffing season but I suggest you don’t get cuffed.

1. Total Waste of Time
You will never be younger or hotter than you are at this very moment. Why waste your time on someone for the sake of not being alone for just one season? Let’s not forget how incredibly time consuming it is to get to know someone to begin with. Don’t waste your time learning how they take their coffee and that the Notebook is their favorite movie when they won’t last until spring.

2. Being Single for the Holidays Can Be Fun
High School Musical would have been an entirely different movie had Troy been cuffed during that impromptu karaoke session with Gabriella. But they weren’t and so we were blessed with three great movies. Holiday parties are a great way to meet your Troy or Gabriella. Plus, I’m pretty sure it’s everyone’s goal to get kissed by a random hottie under the mistletoe.

3. Super Awkward Explain
Sure being cuffed to someone means you won’t have to explain to Aunt Janet for the third year in a row why you haven’t brought someone home, but you will have to explain to Aunt Janet why they’re not at Easter. Just bite the bullet and tell everyone at the dinner table you’re living a life of celibacy.

4. Cuffing is Expensive
Half the point of cuffing is so you can take your partner on those seasonal dates. And after a while all those ice skating dates start to add up. Not to mention you have to buy some sort of thoughtful gift and let’s face it a good gift comes at a cost. Save yourself the money and treat yo self instead.

5. You Might Get Hurt
Cuffing season is all fun and games until someone catches feelings and the other doesn’t feel the same. Next thing you know you’re drowning in a puddle of your own tears listening to Pandora’s Top Breakup Anthems. Spare yourself the drama and just sit this cuffing season out.
