We are right in the middle of cuffing season — the period between autumn and winter where finding a partner is more appealing.
Dating and relationship expert Sami Wunder told Insider the human desire for love and companionship is accentuated in winter.
But there are a few warning signs to look out for that could mean your love interest is just looking for some warmth before they dump you again in the spring.
“Someone who says things like ‘I just want someone to snuggle up to in the cold, or someone to bring to a family dinner,'” Wunder said. “If someone is mentioning it’s for the holiday season or for the winter that’s a big red flag.”
Someone looking for a winter boyfriend or girlfriend might want to escalate things to mimic true intimacy, but it’s important to pace yourself so you don’t get hurt.

You can tell winter has arrived when the evening starts at 4 p.m. It’s also clear from the amount of messages you receive from love interests telling you how much they want to drink mulled wine and curl up with you by the fire.
Singletons are now seeking somewhere cosy to stay rather than be tossed outside in the cold after a one night stand, which can only mean one thing — it’s cuffing season. See the rest of the story at Business Insider
