Dating: What is cuffing season?!

Thank goodness for the internet! I am now fully aware of the official urban dictionary definition of cuffing season:

During the Fall and Winter months people who would normally rather be single or promiscuous find themselves along with the rest of the world desiring to be “Cuffed” or tied down by a serious relationship. The cold weather and prolonged indoor activity causes singles to become lonely and desperate to be cuffed.

Didn’t know there was a new term for this. Honestly, when I heard cuffing season my mind went straight to the gutter (I’m awful, I know). But I digress; this cuffing season is one of those double-edged swords. It can be good or it can be really bad. What happens in the spring? Will your cuffing boo suddenly start to look less appealing with the change in seasons?

This just proves how fickle dating can be. You could be excited about someone for a couple of months and things get hot and heavy. Then out of nowhere, you look up and find the person has become bored, gone to the next victim. They may even pull that oh so lovely disappearing act – my personal favorite maneuver (NOT).

Do you ever think that people you are pursuing or dating are only interested in you to keep them warm in the fall or winter? How do you know if they are planning on sticking around?

Goooooood morning Atlanta….and to me, myself and I!! :mrgreen:

On topic: Cuffing? That’s a new one to me too, Diva. Fickle and hogwash….lol As with all games, don’t allow it, don’t fall for it. You can’t be an outdoors summer boo, winter definitely ain’t happening!

Off topic (and another big ole laugh): So, yesterday was our last day to deep dive the portfolio. We decided to do a quick break for lunch since no time to leave the building. We’re undecided what to eat though, so we all walk down to the lobby. We grab something to go from Jason’s Deli and have lunch in the conference room. We’re taking a few minutes to eat and I bring up the blog and tell them we’re now 3 days deep with my attacker and one-sided growling….lololololol….and that I’d been diagnosed as narcissist earlier that morning. Remember, most of them got in on the laugh the day prior. They ain’t believing 3 days and the growling is STILL going on. So, they check it out…. And there it is, a dissertation on narcissism, diagnosing me, only to have the non-doc go on further to say he/she/it NEVER MET ME!!!!! We CA-RACKED up….seriously?!?! :mrgreen: Thanks again silly head (that’s what my grandniece says) for the laughs!!!

If talking about myself makes me a narcissist, would it make you a stalker if you do it….AFTER EVERYONE HAS GONE HOME HOURS LATER?!?!

Anyhoo Honeybooboo, or whatever your name, I’m not blogging cause I’m working…..if you must know :) I have double the work now and half the time :mrgreen:

Mmeello – Yes dear, I am happy :)

HILARIOUS!!!!!

and that I’d been diagnosed as narcissist earlier that morning

Interesting….the post only said if someone you know meets this criteria get them help. How odd that you should think it referred to you, Celisea.

only to have the non-doc go on further to say he/she/it NEVER MET ME!!!!!

It’s SHE, and I did not say that. But you are correct: I have never met you and have no desire to meet you, Celisea

Anyhoo Honeybooboo, or whatever your name, I’m not blogging cause I’m working…..if you must know

I had to go back and read to know what you are referencing here. I have no idea who honeyamber1 is, but it looks like you’ve managed to make even more friends and fans, Celisea. Congratulations.

Hey Cel!

U know what,bless me for my long association with women(in a good way) and living with one. I smelt some different when I saw that Informercial about mental health.
Hence my response. To be honest I knew nothing about the beef!

But I was on the money, as always! :lol:

Y’all need to stop it! Catty ladies! :lol:

Cold is cold and winter is cold so I wil understand those who do the cuffing. So singles get lonely in winter! Hmmmm Diva is onto something.

Do u know why they(ladies) get benches in winter? Diva? U know?

Ima tell ya. :lol:

Cause in spring and summer the flesh comes out shining and is in competition,eyes wandering left right left….that flesh,(skin) or rather,some of that flesh(skin) u cuffed with in winter ain’t appealing in summer seasons. U cuffed but compromised. It was about the flesh per se..it was how the flesh helps reduce the cold. Or provide warmth,if u will.

U toss that in summer,unwrap ….and lo and behold….u don’tike All that!!.in spring? He’ll Naw! :lol:

Spring and summer is for some chiseled,toned,lotioned bright lean skin!
Less clothed More better! (u like that English?) :lol:

Dating?

Cuffing.

Happy cuffing it’s almost season time!

MIA!!!

No, its an agricultural thing. People come together during the colder nights, and usually conceive during the holiday season. Nine months later, in late August through September, babies are born. While most marriages are during the spring, most babies are Leos or Virgos. Ask any school board.

Celisea, think what you want to think as I know you will anyway. And congratulations on being so important that what you say and do causes others to devotedly follow you. And to think all it takes is your comments to bring others out of the woodwork.

Did you strike a nerve? Yes, but not in the way you think. I am unnerved by the way you bully and dominate this blog with your rambling posts and innuendo and only a few stand up to you.

But you, yourself and you? Nah. You don’t matter to me. Never did. Never will. Write anything you want; I’ll be skipping your posts from now on.

Oh and to counter “bullying” you hang on my every post??? Yeah, that will scare me away…lol bullying cause I’m not fake, nor talk skittles, oodles of “yaaays”, hugs, snugs???? Oh, reverse bullying and attacks is better?!?! Miss me with that. Oh, you hide yours behind with using “the not so pleasant ITL” to get your remarks and attacks done.

Guess you thought I was scared cause I’m mostly igg you….NOT!!!

Bluz, funny how you keep infiltrating yourself when I have yet to see your name posted??? I guess you’re telepathic cause I don’t know where the hell you came from or how you fit into this….oh, yeah I do….lololololol

Wait, “you can’t be me cause our writing style is not the same”….I almost spit my drink out when I read that. Who on here needs to defend who they are? Seriously?? Who points out “we can’t be the same cause our posts posted at the same time” Ummm, even a 1 day old baby knows you can have several browers going or blogging from more than one device. Who would even THINK to say that, IF YOU’RE NOT PLAYING GAMES??? I know it don’t cross my mind…cause I’m just me. Only one me.

I think it has more to do with the holidays than anything.

It starts getting cold, and people think of Thanksgiving and Christmas (and how can you not when Christmas trees go up in October?) and start getting a little….less than discriminate in their convictions about potential mates. Come spring – and the sun – and folks get out and about looking to be loosed from their dreary day darlings….

At least, that’s what I’ve experienced.

Sup Folks!!

Anyway…on topic…I’ve never heard the term “cuffing” but I have heard that the fall/winter is the time that people want to couple up. I think part of it is the cold weather and part of it is not wanting to be alone during the holidays. I’m not interested in just a temporary boyfriend…
