Ready or not, here it comes!
Cuffing Season: 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.
So, if you still aren’t aware of what exactly is “Cuffing Season” or what are the signs of this Fall phenomenon allow me to break this down.
Your friends are getting boyfriends. Serious boyfriends.
“Hey stranger” texts start to roll in.
Reality Check: They don’t give a damn about your holiday or whether or not Santa broke you off because you
didn’t cut a bitch this year were good.
You’re moodier than normal
You’re almost to the point where you want to escape to a convent and give up on relationships forever. Potentials come and you don’t even try.
Randos pop up in your inbox.
You don’t hang out with this person. You don’t talk to this person on the regular. You only added them on social media because you worked together as teens or had a brief bond over a show discussion in class or had a mutual friend. Suddenly, they come out of nowhere and want to have private discussions about your life and why you two should talk or hang out more often.
Your guy friend that has had a mild crush on you starts acting weird as shit.
Hey. You know that dude you’ve had that stupid crush on for what seems like forever?
You know the one. You like him, he likes you, you hang out out all the time and thinks you’re awesome but has first world problems like “trust issues” and “no time for a serious relationship”.
Yeah….he has a girlfriend now.
Some of your guy friends start settling for any ole thing.
Your family starts nudging your uterus and your ring finger causing you to bring your bitch claws out.
Your ex is suddenly around more and they’re being friendly. Extremely friendly.
And because of that, your friends/family start checking in with you more and making sure you aren’t getting TOO friendly with your ex.
You start getting aggressive voicemails from would-be potentials.
Even you yourself feel weird and slightly coming down with a case of walking pneumonia for thinking of silly things like marriage in a more heavy rotation. Only with James Franco, though.
Cuffing Season: Hang in there, it’ll be over soon.
