What Is Cuffing Season?

Let’s get the biggest question out of the way! What the heck is cuffing season? No, no it’s not some crazy term from the erotic world.

Cuffing season in Urban dictionary terms is: During the Fall and Winter months 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.

The summer months we are traveling, having fun at the beach with friends and family it doesn’t seem to be as much of a big deal to be single in the summer.

Season usually starts around October and takes you through the month of March. This means you have the big valentine’s day holiday mixed into cuffing season too which can be fun or complex.
