Falling Into Love Season
The leaves are falling and so are you. You’ve ditched your summer fling and you are ready for fall love.
Fall is the best time to fall in love. Step out of your comfort zone and be bold. The weather change is a great excuse to ask your crush on a coffee date or stroll around the city.
So do not dwell on your hot summer fling because fall is “cuffing season.”
According to UrbanDictionary.com, cuffing season is “a season during the fall and winter months in which 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.”
So when you meet your new love interest of the season you should know this is the real thing, and there’s a few ways to prove it. First, since it’s fall you’ve begun to cover up and wear more clothes. The fact that you aren’t showing off the goods, but this person is interested is a good sign. Furthermore, no one wants to be alone during the holidays. Conveniently “cuffing season” falls just in time for all major holidays. So cuffing season is the best time of the year for singles everywhere!
Now that you don’t have to worry about showing off too much skin, you can finally relax and just enjoy your date. Don’t question why your new J. Crew cardigan is landing you a hot date when your hot summer bikini only landed you a summertime booty call. It makes no sense, but this is a time of settling down with more a conservatively dressed look. Now I am not encouraging everyone to become a prude to get a boyfriend, but simply go with the seasons. In the summertime, let your skank flag fly high, but as fall approaches embrace the more snugged up look. Apparently the more serious the outfit, the more serious the relationship.
So begin embracing September and its commitment atmosphere. If you get started now, you will be building a solid foundation for fun couple costumes, multiple Thanksgiving dinners, an expensive Christmas gift and of course that New Year’s kiss.
Summer flings were great, but that season is over. Its definitely bittersweet since friends with benefits is much less complicated, but as soon as it starts getting colder you will appreciate your consistent cuddle buddy. Although I am a firm believer of six packs and tan, shirtless men, the beach babes are out and the fall (clothed) studs are in.
