Heartbreak Podcast - How To If Know He's Cuffing You


Not only have we reached the holidays, but this time of year also means that it is cuffing season. In case you haven’t heard this term before, it refers to a period of time from October to February when people seek out short-term relationships to help get through these colder months. Since it’s colder, people are less motivated to get out there and find their person, and for many, they seek the comfort of a relationship, even if it’s just something they see as short-term. 

This is a term that I became familiar with only within the last couple of years. And honestly, I’m glad that either it didn’t exist, or I didn’t know about it when I was single. I can see how the idea of cuffing season could create a sense of panic that maybe the person you’re dating doesn’t see this as long-term, or that they aren’t taking the relationship seriously. In this episode, let’s take a look at how it doesn’t serve you to fixate on this, and also some tips on how to avoid getting cuffed.

These tips are obviously focused on identifying ways to avoid cuffing, but they are no different from tips I share with my clients throughout the whole year on ways to identify and avoid unavailable partners. If you want to learn more on how to avoid Mr. or Ms. Wrong, heal your heart, fall in love with you, and find your person, I invite you to apply for my group coaching program, Stop Wanting Him Back and Find Someone Better

Also, I’m excited to share that my course, Stop Wanting Him Back and Find Someone Better, is back for the month of December 2022, and now includes 20 new videos. Plus, there’s a whole bonus dating guide, where I guide you through from the moment you match on the apps, all the way through to when you decide to make things exclusive. There will also be 5 live group-coaching calls in the month of February. So to learn more, be sure to go to
