New dating terms are happening all the time and apparently, it’s “cuffing season” but what does it mean?
Seventy Thirty‘s team looked at today’s dating terms and let us know what cuffing is and who’s doing it.
Cuffing season; refers to the winter months, when people who are usually happily single start to seek a committed relationship.
With the days getting shorter and the nights longer, the temperature dropping and the trees becoming bare, it’s the perfect time for cosy nights in with your loved one, building a relationship. It is the optimal time of year for past partners to creep up on you, too.
Be on the look out for your single exes!
If an ex-partner is single, they might try to come back you to spend these cosy nights in with you.
Clinical psychologist Seth Meyers explains that “our energy levels are lower during the colder weather and we are moodier’” so we have less motivation to organise interesting dates.
This, coupled with poor winter weather, means we have fewer places to go and things to do. This makes us seek out an easier option, such as a past partner.
