You Owe It To Yourself: Things You Should Do Before Entering A New Relationship During Cuffing Season
Before the autumn leaves even hit the ground you can rest assure that the chilled weather and sounds of the whipping wind won’t be the only thing reminding you of what season it is. You can also count on overhearing chatter, possibly participating in a few conversations of your own, reading Facebook statuses, and coming across tweets that remind you that as soon as the temperature drops it is officially “cuffing season.” For those who are unfamiliar, cuffing season is a period during the colder months in which some singles tend to desire to hook up with another person to settle down with them for the fall and winter months. These relationships usually end once the weather warms up and “choosing season” begins. I don’t really buy into the “cuffing season” philosophy because I don’t really feel that it is smart to rush into a relationship just because of a season (or loneliness). Rushed autumn relationships seem to frequently end in painful or even indifferent spring heartbreaks. So, before you go hopping into a relationship, check out some of the things that you should do for yourself before entering into a new relationship.
