7 Things To Try During Cuffing Season If You’re Single AF

If you’re one of the single ones, who wasn’t picked up by your crush or your summer hook up buddy, cuffing season can quickly turn into a bit of a bummer. “Cuffing Season” is defined as the period during the Fall and Winter months where young single folk trade in their freedom and instead are “cuffed.” Cuffing season is during the colder months of the year because it’s the perfect time to stay in and snuggle with your bae.

Starting around Halloween and ending a bit after Valentine’s Day, cuffing season only lasts for a couple months. If you’re single during cuffing season though, it can feel like an eternity. With cuffing season beginning to wind down as the weather gets a bit warmer, singletons everywhere can soon breathe a sigh of relief when they get their besties back.

While we wait for cuffing season to commence here are seven things to keep you busy if you’re single AF.

1. Do some yoga

While your friends in relationships may be getting their workouts in by getting busy, using your downtime to stay fit and find your zen through yoga will help you stay relaxed. It’ll keep you toned and helps get your body in shape and ready for swimsuit season.

2. Journal

With all your friends in relationships during cuffing season, taking the time to journal and write down your thoughts through self-reflection is incredibly therapeutic and helps keep your mental health in check.

3. Learn a new language or how to play an instrument

Your friends will be completely shook when you casually respond to them in another language during a random convo or when they get an invite to your next performance at an open mic night.

4. Perfect your nail art

Sure getting your nails done is a great way to pamper yourself but trying all those really cool nail art videos that you’re obsessed with watching on IG (we are too tbh) allows you to explore your creative side and you get an adorable mani out the deal.

5. Try some new DIYs

Speaking of exploring your creative side, trying to recreate that dish you saved a few months ago or trying one of the hundreds of DIYs you’ve saved to your Pinterest is also a great way to spend your time during cuffing season.

6. Take care of your skin

Sheet Mask Skincare


Sheet masks are a great way to pamper your skin during the colder months when our skin tends to take a bit more of a beating. They are fairly low maintenance and do all the work for you. All you have to do is pop one on for around 10 to 20 minutes, let your face absorb the serum and boom, perfect skin.

7. Have some phone dates with your girlfriends

Having phone dates with your other single GFs screams TBT, but it’s also a great way to spend time together without having to leave the comfort and warmth of your house.
