When the weather starts getting cold, people tend to start looking for someone to snuggle up with and keep warm. Ladies and gentleman, cuffing season is here. The colder it gets, the more people enjoying staying home and keeping warm. It's not about the parties and nightlife, now we're all about snuggling by the fire and bonding time. People start looking and are ready for a relationship during cuffing season. Cuffing season usually starts right after Halloween, around November 5th. Last year, the dating app Hinge told us that people are 15% more likely to look for a relationship during this time and Match.com's scientific advisor agreed by saying there's science behind this phenomenon.

If you're ready to embrace "cuffing season," where do you go to find someone else looking for someone to cuddle during the cold? Turns out, Texans and New Mexicans are big fans of cuffing season, or at least talking about it on social media. The website JJ's House looked at each state to see where the term "cuffing season" was used most on social media. New Mexico came in at number two on the list, with Texas following close behind at number 3. Here are the top 5 locations where cuffing season is mentioned on social media:

  1. Utah
  2. New Mexico
  3. Texas
  4. West Virginia
  5. Alaska

So if you're looking for love and winter warmth, this is the right time to do it! Plus, other studies have shown men find women more alluring during the winter months (since they're covered up more), testosterone levels are higher in men and women which makes their sexual desires go up and let's not forget the scents of pumpkin and vanilla in the air. Those scents have been found to stimulate the libido in people. Just remember cuffing season only lasts through November because people say screw it to love when it gets colder and would just rather buy a heated blanket. I assume.
