Cuffing Season: How To End Up In A Happy Relationship For The Holidays & Beyond

cuffing season all winter relationship holiday romance dating

The weather is starting to get colder and the holiday season is quickly approaching. Halloween and Thanksgiving decorations are available and soon we'll be hearing catchy Christmas songs on the radio. Then there's New Year's Eve and Valentine's Day. It's a great time to spend with family and loved ones, which is probably why the holiday season (starting as early as October) is also known as "cuffing season". 

Cuffing season is the unofficial time of year where more romantic relationships begin so people don't have to feel alone during the cold winter and stressful holidays. During this time if you're single it can often seem like everyone is in a relationship except you, and that you want to settle down with someone serious. While we don't encourage anyone to get into a relationship these reasons alone, if you are serious about getting serious then there are plenty of dating tips out there. 

If you're looking to participate in cuffing season then here are some smart suggestions: 

Signal Single Status:

Make sure you get the message out on Facebook that you're single and ready to mingle. Make sure "Single" is your official Facebook status. Post some cute pictures and selfies of you on Facebook and Instagram, and maybe even spice up your LinkedIn profile picture. You could even go so far as posting quotes or song lyrics about searching for someone worthwhile and looking for true love. While these tactics might seem very lame, it will help to get word out that you're officially on the market and looking. You'll at least get some inquiries and dates for sure this way. 

Get Your Friends & Family Working For You

Chances are some of your friends and family will see your FB and IG statuses and pictures, but you should still tell the rest of them face to face. Just casually mention that you're looking to find your better half and that if they know of anyone to send them your way! It might sound like a long shot, but the more people you tell then the greater your chances of success.

Wonderful Dating Websites:

The quickest and easiest way to find a real relationship is through online dating. Dating websites can be started and managed on your own time and even updated on your smartphone. You're guaranteed to get plenty of matches and it can also be a nice confidence booster as well to hear from so many admirers. We recommend top free dating sites like Match Me Happy if you're in the UK. 

Hit The Gym

Even though it's getting colder out, it's never the wrong season to sport your best body. Getting to the gym will help keep you trim, toned, energetic, healthy, and confident. It will also improve your posture and strengthen your aura. Who knows, you  might even find relationship material at the gym or at Whole Foods! Make sure to wear that flattering workout gear...

Holiday Gifts

Getting your date a high quality holiday gift is a good way to go from hookup to long-term relationship material. On the flip side, if you give a thoughtless gift or forget entirely then you might be kissing your chances of being in a long term relationship goodbye. No pressure!

After The Boys Of Summer Are Gone

You know the hit song "Boys Of Summer" by Don Henley of The Eagles? You could interpret it as the end of summer being the end of a fun single lifestyle and the transition to a cooler cuffing season. Those casual summer flings fueled by vacations end in favor of more serious autumn and winter relationships. Spring and summer time are for sexy singles to enjoy their freedom and live it up, but come October it's time to cuff!

Pair Up & Square Up 

You don't have to go through another chilly holiday season without someone you care about keeping you warm! If you're looking for a real relationship for the holidays and beyond, then we recommend trying out amazing free dating sites like We Love Dates.
