Hand stitched stuffed hearts in Fall leaves

Couple Walking Through Field Holding HandsPumpkin spice lattes, warm soup, and hay rides have arrived; Fall is in the air and cuffing season has begun!

Cuffing season, a term that originated in 2011 and has exploded in popularity since, refers roughly to the period of time between mid-September and late-November where many couples begin to DTR (define the relationship). As the nights get cooler and Summer fun begins to feel less like a novelty and more like a chore, one night stands and flings are traded in for the comfort and security of a real, official relationship. Call me basic, but I think there’s something extra sweet and romantic about cuddling up under the covers with your new partner, a good book, and some warm tea or cider.

Couple's Feet in Fall Leaves

 

Pumpkin patch, bookstore, and coffee dates become increasingly popular around this time, and photos start popping up on social media of new couples slowly soft-launching their status. Maybe you’ll see a glimpse of an unfamiliar flanneled shoulder next to what seems like an innocent apple picking photo, a tagged account with no face in the photo, or a hand you don’t recognize reaching for a donut in your friend’s recent post. These soft-launches make it possible to give followers a sneak peak at the couple's photos that are to come without fully committing to the Facebook-level relationship status change that used to mark the beginning of a new relationship.
