There's no real timeline for when cuffing season starts. It inevitably begins when the weather gets chilly and your hormones start raging–so much so, you'd rather sit at home snuggled up with an S.O. than actually go out to, like, do things.
Locking a cuff down during the frigid winter months can seem a bit intimidating, but once you've scouted and drafted your picks for the season, it's go-time baby.
To prepare you for the perf November to February snug-fest, here are 22 completely normal things you may find you and/or your cuff experiencing:
1) Hitting relationship milestones quicker.
First fart in front of your cuff? No biggie, it’s muffled by the couch cushion you’re both laying on anyway.
2) Granny panties.
Because who feels like having a thin piece of cloth hiked up their ass and freezing their cheeks off, ya know? Your cuff will just have to deal with more ass-covering fabric.
3) Lazy sex.
Think: what’s the easiest, fastest, most efficient way to put the p-in-the-v and still clock 10 hours of sleep.
4) Low hygiene standards.
Say buh-bye to razors and moisturized legs, hello dry shampoo and deodorant wipes.
5) Really, just low standards in general.
As in, you're fumbling between the sheets with someone you wouldn’t normally go for...except for the fact that they happen to live in the apartment right below you and the convenience factor makes up for their Chewbacca-like sex grunts, right?
6) Thinking strictly in the moment.
You don’t know where you’ll be when temps rise above 60 degrees, but who cares when there's Thai takeout and on-demand Netflix and chill.
7) Sex with your socks on.
It’s cold, dammit!
8) Spending more time constructing your perfect Hinge bio than actually getting ready for work.
A perfectly acceptable pastime in my book.
9) Revamping your social media.
See: uploading those summer bikini pics with flame emojis and “Missing The Heat” captions.
10) Taking more Uber Pools.
You know, to increase your chances of coincidentally running into your next potential boyfriend. And because, again, it's cold outside.
