To The Hopeless Romantic Spending Cuffing Season Single

Don't you dare let cuffing season make you feel lonely.

To The Hopeless Romantic Spending Cuffing Season Single

There's something about fall that entices people to find a significant other to spend the season with. Maybe it's the smell of the crisp, fall air or the sudden sight of the vibrant, colorful fall foliage. Maybe it's the idea of having someone to stay warm under the blankets with you while staying indoors, avoiding the brutally cold, windy weather. While the reason behind it is unclear, it's important to appreciate that there's something magical in the air from fall to winter that somehow draws people together, forming the apparent 'cuffing season'.

From early October to just after Valentine's Day, cuffing season thrives. While it's nice to have a reliable individual beside you to take shelter with indoors, the majority of relationships established during the cuffing season seemingly only survive until the season's end. Despite the expected relationship longevity, for hopeless romantics, watching these relationships transpire can be disheartening while remaining single.

Being a hopeless romantic means dreaming of finding your true match or equal. For some, meeting your match ought to be done by encountering an individual in person, perhaps through friends, coworkers, or classmates. For the hopeless romantic trying to find their match, the cuffing season can often persuade you into questioning your preferred method of meeting someone. With dating apps such as Tinder, Bumble, or Farmers Only, it can be tempting to rely on these websites in search of easily finding someone within minutes. Granted, our generation has a fondness of expressing our lives through social media, but you can't let social media become your plan to fall back on if you'd truly rather meet someone in person.

It can be challenging encountering cuffing season while single, but being a hopeless romantic isn't necessarily about finding someone to simply keep you warm during the cold months. Being a hopeless romantic is about keeping up hope that you'll find that one person, perfect for you.

Other people in the world may be posting photos across social media of their newly found love, but photos can be deceiving. Perhaps that couple's relationship that you yearn for and adore won't last after cuffing season ends. The thing to keep in mind is you can't let cuffing season make you question your worth or rethink your hope for love. Don't let dating apps entice you into the 'talking stage' if you'd rather aspire for the old-fashioned 'dating stage'. Don't diminish your romantic goals simply because the accumulation of relationships advertised on social media makes you feel like you're missing out.

Yes, it may take longer than anticipated, but finding your perfect match won't be accomplished by belittling your romantic hopes or pushing for an imperfect relationship to deem fit. Having hope that there's someone out there, perfect for you, and keeping that hope alive is what makes you a hopeless romantic. Never forget your worth and never let any frivolous, theoretical seasons, such as cuffing season, weaken your goal of finding the perfect person for you. Don't rush it, your match is out there, you just have to have hope.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
