It’s a season so dangerous, the kids these day have a name for it — “Cuffing Season.” Cuffing Season is the phenomenon where those young and old seek serious relationships once the cooler months come around. The idea comes from people being “cuffed” or tied down.
Millennials aren’t the only people at risk either. Anyone can easily become trapped in the Cuffing Season travesty. Not only are they stuck in these relationships, but when Valentine’s Day comes around, many of those who haven’t yet been afflicted don’t survive.
