The phrase ‘cuffing season’ might appear as strange, but the phenomenon is pretty simple, and relatable to boot. Simply put, it’s when you yearn to be in a relationship. Every single person feels like that at some point or the other. Cuffing season takes this yearning to another level and is mostly felt when the temperature starts dipping. So basically, during winter, the usually happy single people start looking for a partner to “handcuff” into a relationship in order to get through the chilly winter days. Cuffing season can be quite hard to get through sometimes. With everyone around in a relationship, the desire to snuggle with someone goes up a few notches. But if that’s not something you want, try these tips to survive cuffing season like a pro.
Get those creative juices flowing
Everyone has a list of things they want to do but don’t have the time for. For instance, you might be thinking of starting a blog or baking some sweet treats or even reading more, etc. This season, make time for those activities and fuel your creativity. The more you occupy yourself with interesting things, the lesser attention you’ll pay to your relationship status.
Get the girl squad together
This is perhaps the most effective thing to do. Spending some time with your girls releases those happy hormones and what better time than this season to squeeze in some quality time? Think of all the fun winter activities you can do together! Hot chocolate dates, shopping for cute sweaters or just getting together and watching a bunch of chick flicks. And you know the saying, sisters before misters, right?
Spread the love
Why not use this cuffing season to spread some love? Cuffing season also coincides with holiday season and it’s the perfect time to give back to society. Spend some time with elders at an old age home or organise a clothes collection drive. Small acts of kindness towards others can help you feel better about yourself, which in turn makes you not seek external validation. It’s a great win-win situation for everyone.
Go on a solo trip
Now, this is great on many levels. One, it’s a good distraction from all the couple fluff around you. You spend a lot of time planning a trip that excites you and traveling alone can help you get to know yourself on a deeper level. It could also be an opportunity for you to understand that you don’t really need a man to be happy.
