6 Signs You've Fallen Victim to Cuffing Season

6 Signs You've Fallen Victim to Cuffing Season

While a winter-time romance seems ideal to some, it's truly the opposite. People are more susceptible to jump into relationships because it's cold, a magical time of year, and the need to feel less lonely in the chillier months.

Here are a few telltale signs that you may be doomed by spring.

You start doing couple-y things several times a week...maybe even a day. 

Giphy

You've never been to Kirkland's, so why are they taking you? You just met a month ago and have seen each other every day since. You're suddenly picking out Christmas decorations for your "partner's" apartment and they're talking about taking you home for Christmas. How the hell did you get here?

You haven't been on Tinder or out to the bar in weeks.

Giphy

You've found yourself staying in, rather than going out and looking to meet people. Half the time you're in, you're probably with your sudden significant other watching Netflix. Nothing super exciting going on, if you know what I mean.

Your friends are now theirs, and vice versa.

Giphy

Even your friends are confused. They don't know how this happened, or how you two even met for that matter. But, they're all getting along like they were meant to all along.

The warmer it gets, the less you speak.

Giphy

Somehow, you start to miss the sudden whirlwind romance that you had. You haven't talked in days, and it feels like you're growing distant. You actually started enjoying their company, and you start wondering what you did wrong.

You start seeing them with other people. 

Giphy

The person their with doesn't look like you. They're looking all cuddly and happy, and you start thinking you should do the same. But, you never really got your closure, so how can you?

The relationship officially ends.

Giphy

Whether they call you, you call them, or you physically meet, you finally reach the final chapter in your short book. You realize that it wasn't much of a relationship. Nothing was really... real. It was just a convenient relationship, and you both decide to leave as unlikely friends.

It's normal to get wrapped up in the wonders of a winter relationship. However, take this as a warning to stay strong and find someone out of interest, rather than convenience. Sure, the winter months get cold, but blankets keep you just as warm.

Hope you find love in the best of places.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

We have all been there. Mindlessly scrolling through social media and then we see that post. We see someone we once saw a future with creating it with someone else. However this time it was really different. A lot of times when we say we are happy for someone we don't really mean it.

Affirmations affirm beliefs that we are in need of strengthening. They help up to focus on goals that we are striving for or on a powerful part of ourselves that we need a little reminder is within us.

They specifically focus on positive outcomes or belief systems that we're working to solidify, rather than solely focusing action on eradicating something "bad" or "wrong" from your life.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Some people are so good at downplaying their sadness that even they don't realize how much they do it. When you ask them how they are they will always say that they are good, even when they aren't. They exhaust themselves by plastering an energetic and carefree persona in the spaces that you watch them in because at least to you they can control how they appear. They can pretend to be the happy person they want to be when everyone is telling them how funny and bubbly they are all the time.

Mental health is not an easy endeavor. It's not a fad. It's not a bandwagon that you can hop on and off of whenever you want to. Your yearly dose of sadness is not depression. I'm not here to define what depression — or anxiety, or any other type of mental health issue looks like — but I will tell you what it's not.

I sometimes look back at the days when I had anorexia and think to myself what would have happened if I had taken another bite? Nowadays, I spend days dreading over my figure and wondering if the old sundresses and outfits even fit. I tell myself that they do, but I feel like reality holds a different truth.
