Are you getting "cuffed" this year?
The Christmas and holiday season is now upon us, which means it's also cuffing season — a time for you to decide if you want to brave the cold weather and holidays alone or cozy up to someone for the next few months.
Many of us find cuffing season to be romantic and a great way to meet someone new, but all too often, these flings only last from October until the end of the holidays in March.
Don’t get me wrong, I’d MUCH rather spend cuffing season having casual sex and someone to shower me with gifts, but lots of people see it as a very romantic time of the year, which is totally relatable.
You can, and should, use cuffing season as a way to finally have a date to the annual Christmas party (and get your family off your back) or to spend Valentine’s Day together instead of being alone. Again.
Sounds fun, right? You haven’t heard the best part, yet.
When cuffing season finally comes to an end, you can amicably part ways until next year (or not) without anyone’s feelings getting hurt… that is unless your zodiac sign says differently.
You might leave your independent nature behind so you can guarantee you’ll get some booty over the next few months, or you may decide that this is the perfect time of year to look for a serious partner.
However you do it, cuffing season is an AWESOME way to get cozy, watch movies, eat (and get eaten), even if only for a few months.
So, I don’t know about YOU, but sign me up!
Aries is a pretty easy-going sign who would honestly rather look for a good party instead of a partner for cuffing season. That said, if you end up finding someone you can party with and cozy up to, you’re pretty much set for life.
You don’t mind being alone, even when everyone else is shacking up, because you know that you’re the most important person in your life; there’s really no need to fill it with someone else for a short period of time. However, Aries is never one to turn down a good opportunity, so you tend to use your best judgment when it comes to cuffing season.
Your Ideal Partner: Sagittarius
To a Taurus, cuffing season is such a good concept. You like the idea of there being no strings attached, unless you want them, while still being able to spend some serious downtime with a cutie.
When it comes to cuffing season, you look for a relationship that is both passionate and cute, so that you get all of your favorite things rolled into one person. Still, you are a romantic, which can make all this intimate time with one person hard for you to keep casual. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself falling for your cuffing partner when the holidays are over.
Your Ideal Partner: Gemini
Gemini has always been curious about cuffing season and has probably already weighed the pros and cons of a holiday-only relationship. Being such an affectionate person, while still getting a little nervous about serious relationships, cuffing season is perfect for you.
You love the romantic element of the season and love the thought of sharing blankets, gifts, and kisses with someone cute. You also can’t think of a better way to decide if someone is worth your time or not by putting them through a test run over the holidays.
Your Ideal Partner: Taurus
Cancer loves having emotional connections with people, even for short periods. You would definitely want to partake in cuffing season because nothing is more romantic to you than just spending the winter months with someone you like (aww).
You would most likely look for something meaningful – something that includes exchanging gifts, date nights, and lots of cuddling – even if you knew it wasn’t going to last past the holidays. Just the thought of having someone around for a little fun is enough for you!
Your Ideal Partner: Pisces
Cuffing season for a Leo is a time to be doted on and loved. You don’t care if your time with your cuffing partner is serious or casual, as long as you get to have some serious fun in the process.
Being a typical Leo, you are really only into the whole thing for the gifts and attention. Having a sure thing over the holidays is a good deal, but being showered with presents and intimacy makes it that much sweeter. When it all ends, you will probably look for the same partner again next year, but only if he properly satisfies you this year.
Your Ideal Partner: Libra
Cuffing season is all about no strings attached, which directly contradicts what a Virgo thinks about relationships. You take pride in being a very loyal partner, which is why you prefer relationships that are more serious.
That said, you should try having a cuffing partner at least once, but knowing the type of person you are, you would probably worry too much about getting attached to your partner that the whole thing would end up feeling like work. Unless you are in a serious relationship, you don’t see the fuss about having someone around just for the holiday season.
Your Ideal Partner: Capricorn
Libra already loves the idea of sharing the holidays with friends and family, so having someone around to make out with under the mistletoe too is even better! That said, as long as the two of you have fun together, you don’t really care if it’s casual OR serious.
Cuffing season to you means being able to share your favorite holiday traditions with someone you enjoy spending time with. Drinking on St. Patty’s Day, watching horror movies on Halloween, and exchanging gifts on Christmas are things you would rather do with someone, not alone. Most likely, you will want to have a cuffing partner who is just a friend, or at least stay friends after the holidays are over.
Your Ideal Partner: Leo
Cuffing season equals casual sex to a Scorpio and nothing more. If you know that you can get laid pretty much whenever you want, of course you’re gonna want in on it!
It doesn’t bother you that cuffing season is temporary because you actually prefer it that way. Instead of looking for a short-term relationship, you really just want a friend with benefits who feels the same way about cuffing season as you do. Having that last after the holiday season would be a bonus, though!
Your Ideal Partner: Aquarius
Sagittarius is all about fun, so when you think of cuffing season, it usually just means finding someone to chill with. You see how the casual nature makes it fun and unattached, which is totally fine with you.
You will probably participate in cuffing season just for the hell of it. You’re not looking for anything more than some intimacy and company, but if things change, you’re cool with that, too. Being a curious, extroverted individual, you’ll try everything once; and it definitely won’t be hard for you to find someone cute for the job.
Your Ideal Partner: Aries
Capricorn often thinks their ideal relationship, which usually ends up being a serious one. When you date, you always consider how you would feel if it turned into something long-term. Sometimes the relationship works out and sometimes it doesn’t, but you can safely say you know what you’re looking for.
Cuffing season really isn’t your think because of this reason. You’re not too interested in a short-term thing, and getting your heart broken because you got attached and they didn’t just isn’t appealing. You’d much rather spend the holidays with friends and family.
Your Ideal Partner: Virgo
Nothing says casual sex to an Aquarius better than cuffing season. You enjoy your solitude, so really the only reason why you would get into the spirit of the season would be to find something fun and unattached.
You can be a bit picky when it comes to looking for a cuffing partner, though, because you want someone who isn’t going to catch feelings for you after the holidays are over. That said, if you don’t find anything this year, you’re totally cool with trying again next year. To you, cuffing season should be relaxed, not stressful.
Your Ideal Partner: Scorpio
Pisces finds something so romantic about cuffing season. The cold weather definitely does something to you and you’re totally down with finding a cutie for the winter months.
While you enjoy the fun aspect of it all, you would probably feel better if you knew it would last after cuffing season ends. You won’t let the casual nature stop you from participating, but you can’t help it if you start to catch feelings. You just have to remind yourself that harmless fun CAN lead to something more serious, so keep an open mind during your fling.
