It seems scientists now agree, ‘cuffing season’ is for real. Never heard of ‘cuffing season’? The definition is: ‘During the fall and Winter months people who would rather be single or promiscuous find themselves desiring to be ‘Cuffed’ or tied down by a serious relationship’.

It’s the cold weather and prolonged indoor activity that causes single people to become lonely and desperate to be cuffed. It’s a biological urge men and women feel to find a sexual partner as soon as the leaves start turning.

It seems we are programmed to seek love in colder months. The rate of conception increases in winter and the most popular time of year to sign up for online dating is January.

When spring hits, it is the unofficial end of ‘cuffing season’ and that is the peak of ‘breakup season’.
