10 reasons why being in a relationship is the best during the winter


Every year I have the same dilemma, the boyfriend blues. Just like how I pull out my blanket and Christmas hot chocolate mug I wish I could unpack my winter partner.

During the summer, I love being single. I find myself and my friends are a lot more social and go out every single Friday and Saturday night. Boys are the last thing on my mind as I just want to spend every second with the girls.

However, come October when it starts getting cold we all turn into hermits. Unless we’re in a coffee shop gossiping about some worthless crap I’m either shivering in a smoking area, bored and wanting to go home or I’m cuddling myself on my sofa – literally cuddling myself, in a onesie, while stroking/playing with my own hair.

I always seem to end up getting into relationships this time of the year – known as ‘cuffing season’ – because we apparently look for mates in the winter and here’s why:

1.     There’s nothing better than lying in bed/cuddling up with someone you care about and just being able to talk to someone that you trust.
2.     Not being pestered by your family over the holidays with questions like “Have you met someone?” “My friend’s son would be perfect for you” – nan, I know you mean well but no.
3.     Eating all the food while watching crime documentaries, Stranger Things and films.
4.     Being around their family over Christmas.
5.     Going on cute winter dates, cinema, meals out, Winter Wonderland.
6.     Having sex while it’s raining and cold outside. I don’t know why this is a thing but it’s just comforting.
7.     Human contact. I’ve realised I hate cuddling and holding hands in the summer like no, just get off me. But in the winter, it would be nice to have a hug here and there.
8.     I like stylish coats that don’t keep me warm so therefore I need a man’s to steal.
9.     Bonfire night. We all like a bit of romance and watching a firework display together is simply adorable.
10.  Being stuck inside more due to the coldness can get really lonely.
