What's up with a "cuffing season"?
Any vetting tips not to get into such relationship?
I’ve never heard of ‘cuffing season’ but my girlfriends have always called this time of year ‘boyfriend season’. I think the idea is that, as it gets colder and more festive, you’re less inclined to go out and meet people, but want somebody to cuddle and do cute holiday stuff with. I think the idea is just to pin somebody down for the season even if you both know its not long term.
I never really felt the need, I have a big floofy doggo to cuddle when it gets cold 😂😂😂
I only heard of "cuffing season" after Tinder took off. I honestly never even knew people tended to get into relationships when it gets cold, I always assumed summer was more the dating season - like I don't want to go outside when it's cold, let alone when some dude just wants to meet for a freaking coffee and a walk. 😂
This is the first I'm hearing of it, too. My reaction is like "you mean humans have a mating season just like birds and bugs?" 😆
I suppose I get the appeal of maybe having someone to take to family gatherings so your singleness won't be a topic of conversation. I've certainly thought about doing that. But then I never do, mostly because it's just more trouble than it's worth.
Cuffing season is very real! I don’t know if I’ll have any good vetting info because when I think about it ive had most of my boyfriends in the fall/winter. So I’ve def fallen victim to it.
but I also like have a boyfriend during those seasons as well. So maybe it’s partly me as well!
but I find men who are looking during for a gf during this time, tend to date a lot during the summer and towards the end of summer / beginning of fall become desperate for a gf.
They might be a lot more active on the apps too. I find they move things very fast. Almost like love bombing. They might initiate a “date” kinda early on where he invites you over. I find he will say something like “I want to cook you a really nice dinner and we can stay in”
he’ll get you like that. And after that BAM! you’re his gf all of a sudden. then the spring comes and he becomes less attentive to you and then you know you were just a cuffing season girlfriend
Just now came from a YouTube short, a girl was talking about this. Have no idea on what it is!
Men trying to settle into a relationship before it’s too cold to go outside. Then they’ll dump you when the snow melts.
I’ve heard of it before and I see it happen around me. I’m trying to capitalise on it by hoping I find someone decent during this time. I personally found October to be my best month for finding a relationship in the past, but then again those guys were the desperate types so maybe it’s technically the worst 🤔
Suppose if you keep going out on dates (various indoor events like concerts) and stick with at least 3 months before sex, that would be one strategy. The whole point on male side is not to spend money and effort while getting all the boyfriend benefits under the guise of cold weather.
