Because cuffing season is coming.
How is it already autumn? This year has flown by, and not necessarily in a good way. But, wait, is it still possible to connect? Outside of your house? With another person? Yep. Dating can still work.
“The purpose [of dating] in my eyes is supposed to be to get to know each other, see if you guys want a serious relationship with each other, and then be able to make sure you guys are on the same page,” says Stephan Labossiere, also known as Stephan Speaks, an author and relationship coach. Marriage is the ultimately goal for a lot of people, but even if that’s not your thing, dating can help you find someone who’s a fit...for whatever puzzle you’re working on. (Just have some key COVID-related conversations first.) Fall is as good a time as any to connect with a new partner—in fact, it might even the best time, as folks are gearing up for cuffing season. Plus, there's something romantic about wearing a cozy sweater and sipping a warm beverage.
Look: The leaves are changing. The weather is kinda perfect. And you can avoid crowds. So, if you make a connection, make an effort. Get creative. There’s more to do than drinks!
