As the weather gets colder and the days become shorter, people will look for any excuse not to spend time alone. There's only so much a heater can do. You can't exactly cuddle a heater... well you can but you absolutely will get burned. That's where cuffing season comes in. Gif source
But what is it?
By now you've probably heard the term and have noticed that your otherwise single friends have coupled up. In fact, you may now be the only single member left of your friend group. But why is that? During cuffing season (which starts in November and goes until after Valentine's Day), the goal is to have someone throughout the holidays and the coldest of nights. For some, it's a seasonal friends with benefits type of scenario. For others it's the start of something serious. No matter how you look at it, you can always joke that you were "cuffed". Gif Source
How can you be a part of it?
Now that's something I can't exactly give advice to. After all, trying to find someone during cuffing season is like trying to find someone the rest of the year.... it's all a matter of luck. If it's convenience you're looking for, ask your friends to set you up or maybe ask the cute guy/girl from class out. You can also always resort to the apps if you're looking for a quick cuddle fix.

Around the holidays, emotions are high and expectations should be set. Have a talk with your potential "cuffing partner" about where you see things going so that come spring time you're not surprised by a spring break-up. Remember, cuffing season is meant to be fun but it doesn't mean you have to participate. Be true to yourself and should that mean you find a hottie to snuggle up to when it gets below freezing, so be it. You do you! Gif Source
