If you don’t want to rush into a relationship and find a partner to enjoy the winter months with, I have some tips for you!

  • wait – when people are feeling a little blue and tired of being all by themselves, they are more likely going to say “yes” to a relationship that may not be that good for them.
  • you are not alone – according to a therapist named Cynthia Catchings, it is believed that the winter months and the darker days make our hormones go crazy. For example, she said that when hormones are a little messed up, they create changes in our brains, which make us feel sad and tired. Having someone special we can count on can motivate and re-energize us. This is why people tend to get involved in relationships when it’s cold outside.
  • you are the most important – a lot of relationship experts and therapists say that in order to have a happy and healthy relationship, you have to start by loving yourself first. This means taking care of yourself, listening to your mind and thoughts, and making sure you know yourself. After being comfortable with yourself, you are more likely to know what you want. If you are not happy with yourself, you are going to keep looking for people to make you feel good, but it’s not good for you in the long run.
  • to settle or not settle? – this is a no-brainer, but just like we’ve said in our previous tip, you shouldn’t settle for anything that doesn’t make you happy, even if it is just for a short period of time, like the cuffing season. There is no excuse for bad behavior and or making somebody feel awful, so make sure you know the person you are going to be with.
  • do you feel empty and alone? – you don’t need someone to make you feel happy during the winter season: you have several holidays to be happy about. You are free to do whatever you want. So read, travel, go on festive dates, plan parties, spend time with your friends and family and have fun!


What do you think about cuffing season? Have you ever heard of it? If yes, in which category would you place yourself in: with people who are looking for a partner to spend the cold season with, or with those who don’t care about winter and want to have fun by themselves?
