Y ou can feel it in the air, the snap when you step outside that — in the absence of a warm hand to hold — sends you scurrying back inside for gloves. Cuffing season is coming. You know, the run-up to winter when previously contented single people start seeking shelter in the cosiness of a committed relationship — at least until the weather heats up again.

And as you drift into autumnal bliss, you may also find your mind floating toward the desire for someone to hold hands and cuddle with, the dream of someone to make hot chocolate for on an imminent snow day — even if the romance fizzles out by spring. LeClaire , a sex educator who specializes in touch. Yep, cuffing a partner to get us through winter is evolutionary! Wanting physical contact is a built-in survival instinct, and winter is a notoriously dangerous time as far as survival goes. So of course what we crave this time of year is someone to cuddle with under blankets, sharing takeout while marathoning the latest true crime series on Netflix.

In short, having any preconceived notions about how you will both react to your situation encourages dishonesty, which is the last thing you want in a cuffing sitch.
