It’s Cuffing Season!

As the evenings are drawing in, we are entering what’s known as “cuffing season”, so called because it describes the desire to be “tied down” (or “cuffed”) that often arises in the colder months.

It’s the time of year when people have stopped going out quite so much and are staying indoors snuggled by the fire… alone. Cue a last-ditch attempt by singletons to find a romantic partner for the winter.

Cuffing Season officially starts in September when the weather starts to change, but it’s around now that people will be putting more effort in, in order to be coupled up for the colder months.

Shorter days can exacerbate feelings of loneliness, as well as the looming festivities of the Christmas and New Year period. It definitely is the worst time of year to be single, missing out on lots of cosy couples’ activities and romantic dates.

Just be careful of people saying they’re specifically looking for someone to snuggle up to this winter or specifying anything similar as this could mean that they aren’t looking for anything serious or long term. Often these relationships are over by the spring, as people want to be single in time for the summer.

Whether you are just looking for something for the winter months, or want something more long term, now is the time of year to give Chat2Date a go and chat to singles from all over the UK either on our great chat line or if you prefer to message then try our fantastic mobile dating.

5 Top Tips For Texting Girls

Brunette woman curled up on sofa smiling and textingTexting girls is not something that necessarily comes naturally to guys. Well, men are from Mars and women from Venus after all!

We’ve got some great tips to help you get that conversation started and keep it going when you’re texting someone new.

Don’t leave it too long between messages.

It can mean the difference of keeping the girl interested and her losing interest completely.
Equally though, don’t reply too quickly! If you’re always replying immediately then she might get a bit suspicious – why are you always free and why is your phone always stuck to your hand?!
You need to find a middle ground and pay attention to when she replies as well.

Make sure your spelling and grammar are up to scratch.

Take your time over the reply and make sure you’ve not used any ‘text speak’ or misspelled anything. Try to match her intellect and sophistication with your replies and keep an eye on how she texts as if she’s not so bothered about it, then you can mirror that.

Try and use emojis.

It’s a great way of ensuring your point is read as intended. There’s no tone of voice by written text so using an emoji can portray that you’re joking about something or that it’s a nice message rather than something rude or inappropriate. Just don’t use too many or you’ll look a little over excited.

Try to avoid texting for the sake of texting.

If you’ve genuinely got things to chat about, that’s great, but don’t force it. There’s no point going into detail about something she’s really not interested in, or talking about the weather when neither of you care! Try and find things you both like to keep the conversation flowing.

You can still flirt when texting – be a little bit cheeky!

You’ve got to make sure it’s well received however. If she’s not interested and not flirting back then don’t continue texting, but if you get the green light, go ahead! Emojis can be very useful here, especially the winking face!
