So here we are again… Every year during the transition into the fall season, you start to notice a major shift in the dating scene. People start approaching you more for dates, you start getting “Hey Stranger” messages from old flings and you find that men seem a little more open to the idea of the exclusivity of dating than they were during the spring and summer months. Ladies and gentlemen, it is officially “Cuffing Season.” You may or may not be familiar with the cuffing cycle so let me break it down for you:

When I was looking for love, I often dated up to three guys simultaneously. I wasn't trying to hit some number in the Guinness Book of World Records. Rather, my goal was simple: to find a guy I could date more than three times, hoping this would lead to a relationship.
As much as I value marriage and family, I often wonder if we are not fooling ourselves as a society that the institute of marriage is the defining factor or that the term marriage needs to be redefined itself. There are an overwhelming number of individuals that hit a wall in their marriage when the couples are in their forties. There is almost a biological time cap that is happening to marriage in this day and age and that is after a period of time the marriage moves into a comfortable friendship and is no longer sexy or even fun.
In an ideal world, we’d all have a job we loved. The alarm would go off at 7am and we’d jump out of bed, keen to get to work and get on with the day.
