Okay, so I didn’t really want to give this thing any more attention than what it already has. I’m talking about ‘cuffin’ season’. What is that you ask? Well apparently, this season begins in September and lasts until the end of winter, shortly before the the weather breaks for the spring. According to what I’ve heard, many say this is the time in which single people, men and women alike, go out and hunt for someone to spend their time with during the colder months. I’m just gonna go out on a limb here, and say that the reason one would do this, is because they prefer to be single during the Spring and Summer months, because these months are just so much more awesome when you’re single. *inject sarcasm* Yea. Crazy as hell if you ask me. What is even more crazy is that this was the topic UB Rodriguez’s radio show on WGCI last week. I was done when I heard it.
What I don’t get is, if you go out and seek a person to spend these particular months with, and you are really enjoying that persons company (among other things), then why could you not enjoy them in the months to follow also? *side eye* There is something majorly wrong here. How and when did this become the norm? I’m not sure whether cuffin’ season exists where you are. But where I’m from it does, and has for a while. Believe it or not, there is actually a strategy to the bull-foolery! Continuously adding fuel to the foolery, is that there is actually someone out there who has taken time out of the day to create a ‘cuffin’ season calendar’. Yep, it doesn’t get anymore insane than that. It’s now become a sport of some sort.
Now I get the not wanting to be alone during the winter months, especially because of the holidays. However, what I do not get is purposely pursuing someone, only to then, purposely then discontinue whatever you had together, just because the flowers have started to bloom. Purposely pursuing someone with intentions on purposely kicking them to the curb a few months later, is chemically imbalanced behavior at its best. I mean really people? I don’t get it. I just don’t get it. Even worse, often times both individuals know the whole deal going in, and are completely comfortable with the idea. It is one thing to date someone for a few months, and then the two of you decide to cease doing so. Yet, it is an entirely different thing to cuff, allow yourself to be cuffed, all for the sole purpose of being that persons cuddle buddy. Correct. Cuddle buddy is what these folks call it. It’s pretty self explanatory…and tacky.
*Sigh* I’m not sure if I’m more unnerved that people are dis-valuing themselves by accepting a cuff’ship opposed to a relationship, or the fact that it’s seen as a trendy thing to do. Thank goodness I don’t follow trends. I wasn’t put here to be cuffed as the seasons change. Newsflash: Neither were you. I desire to be cuffed alright…for a lifetime that is. What about you? Are you or someone you know participating in cuffing season? Tell me about it. I’m nosey. Fill me in please.

Sidenote: I admit it the article was well-written & funny to read. But it’s still foolery if you ask me.
Blogger Note: A year later…I have suspicions that I am possibly being pursued for cuffin purposes only. Hmph, he must not know that I know what I know about this season. Only time will tell…
