6 Signs You've Fallen Victim to Cuffing Season

In a relationship with someone this winter, but come spring time you're done-zo?

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.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
