A few years ago, people referred to the holiday months as, “cuffing season.” Cuffing season represented the time before the holidays that everyone started dating. But I think this trend is on its way out.
Here’s how Urban Dictionary defined cuffing season:
Brittany: Why is everyone trying to holla this week like outta no where?
Brittany: Oh yeah you right. I know I wont be sleeping alone this weekend.
Overall, cuffing season helped the holidays go smoothly. You could bring someone home with you for the holidays and look like you had your life some-what “figured out.”
But I think this has all taken a dramatic shift.
I think cuffing season is a thing of the past. The new generation does whatever it can to avoid commitment so bringing someone home doesn’t sound cool anymore.
Honestly, cuffing season has become the new “break up season” and here’s why…
Reasons everyone is breaking up around the holidays:
- He doesn’t want to get you a gift. He’s cheap and he’s a loser. He doesn’t realize that it doesn’t matter what he gets you and a quick trip to the mall will do. But to avoid this pressure, he’ll end things.
- He doesn’t want to take photos with you by a Christmas tree and be made fun of by all of his douchebag friends. All of his other loser friends don’t have girlfriends so naturally they’ll all make fun of him when you post the gingerbread house you two made together on Instagram.
- He doesn’t want to take you home and introduce you to his whole family. He doesn’t want to tell Aunt Marge you met on Tinder.
Moral of the story: Don’t be upset you broke up. Be glad. Now you can go enjoy all the egg nog to yourself and buy your own Christmas presents. Don’t worry, everyone else is doing it.
