What The Heck Is Cuffing Season?

As the temperatures start to dip, it's a good time to talk about a term buzzing around: cuffing season. And no, I'm not talking about the kind of cuffing that involves handcuffs and a daring escape.

You may have heard the song by Doja Cat, "Its Cuffing season, And All The Girls Be Needing A Big Boy," or have just heard the term cuffing season and wondered what the heck it means.

Simply put, it's the time of year when people start looking for a special someone to snuggle up with during the colder months. You know, someone with whom you can share a cozy blanket, binge-watch holiday movies and drink hot cocoa while munching on popcorn. It's a time when many people, even the most independent of us, crave a little companionship.

It typically refers to a short-term relationship that lasts just during the cold months and ends when things warm up, but it can go beyond that and turn into something more long-term.

Do Cuffing Season In A Healthy Way

Now, you may be thinking; it's just a winter fling, right?" Well, that's not entirely true. While cuffing season can start as a casual, fun way to pass the colder months, it can also lead to something more serious. After all, when you find someone who shares your love for holiday sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes, it's hard not to develop some feels.

Of course, as a mental health therapist, I have always encouraged my patients to be open and honest about their intentions no matter what season it is. Remember, a healthy relationship, no matter how long, is built on a foundation of trust, respect, and understanding.

If you're going to cuff this season, do it in a way that's healthy and positive, and understand that you may find yourself developing deeper feelings, so it's essential to communicate that too.

Whether cuffing season is suitable for you or not, just remember that it's a perfectly natural part of the human experience to crave connection and companionship. If you do decide to try it, make sure to bring some cocoa and a warm, fuzzy blanket. Happy cuddling and cuffing!
