But rather, a timely reminder that, unless you adapt your dating style after the first snowfall, you’ll be caught in a drought, much to your dismay.
Surely, different seasons call for different styles and approaches, right?
What many candidly refer to as “cuffing season” is inevitably rearing its tiny little head, and you had better prepare for it, before getting lost in this dating matrix.
For the unfamiliar, in short, cuffing season is when there’s an influx of dating arrangements and scenarios, conveniently designed in keeping one’s company with another—particularly to beat the winter blues and nothing more.
Furthermore, there is nothing more disempowering then sitting at home wishing you could meet “someone.” Get out there and make that a possibility. You may not be interested in which teams are playing, but there's a good chance the guys at the bar will be.
Make a commitment to schedule a happy hour, go see some live music, watch a hockey game at the local watering hole, go dancing, or take a class at least once a week. Making the first move is not about hitting on a guy; it’s about engaging with them.
Why is this time of year particularly difficult for singles?
While holidays are the some of the happiest occasions throughout the year, it is also a time that can very hard for singles.
I think I can speak for a lot of girls when I say I expect to go on proper dates, regardless of the “situationship” I'm currently in.
As the final weeks of 2016's cuffing season come to a close, I find myself wondering if anybody even cares about dating anymore. Since we subconsciously settle, we end up in situationships instead of real, long-lasting relationships. So for all my hopeless romantics looking for love to end the year with, I'm here to keep it real with you and to help you.
Did you know more dates get postponed and cancelled during winter than any other season?
