Cuffing Season as defined by the Urban Dictionary: 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 become lonely and desperate to be cuffed.
When the above calendar hit the internets in late August, many made photocopies, lamented mini versions for their wallets, and magnetized a copy to their fridge, all in a mad rush. Why? Because no one wants to be left out in those cold, lonely, single streets mired in dating struggle when the temperatures are too cold to be outside. Instead, many
fiend want the comfort of a consistent booty cuddle buddy. That makes total and complete sense. Indoor activities are at a premium. Folks strive to conserve their body temperatures and more importantly stockpile their paychecks due to the lack of going out. Movie nights become the in-thing to do, only if you have a booty cuddle buddy, also known as a “boo-thang.” Stay in (no pun…kinda).
The temperature right now is 61 degrees and tomorrow there is conflicting forecasts, but the weather will break the mid 60s and even tip toe along the 70 degree threshold.
Cuffing season is officially on life support!
Coincidentally, but not surprisingly, I have had at least three conversations with male friends as they share their recent and unforeseen struggles in their relationships. I comically exchanged with one haplessly lost friend, who was desperately searching for guidance and support today, “The weather is getting warmer.” He called me an ass for my
seemingly unsympathetic jerk like response.
Call me what you will, but I know that when the weather gets warmer and clothing becomes minimal, it signals the end of cuffing season.
Bring on the sundresses!
