*cue the music*
It happens every Fall without a fail- the scavengers come out! Just as soon as the weather starts getting a little cooler. Why? Because they’re hungry. Shoot, they’ve been feasting all summer on some good food. Best of the best. Buns, thighs, and breast, readily available everywhere they go. Each option secretly chanting “Come get me. Of course you want this?” … or so he thinks. It’s the life! Until they realize that a serious Fall drought is near. Serious indeed, for all dainty creatures eventually become MIA.
It’s routine for us ladies. We enter hibernation, no longer exposing our luscious goods slightly covered by daisy dukes and mid drift tops. Oh no man! If you want to survive, you’ve better stock up on the goods before everyone else gets to them. This quest isn’t like your summertime one. This supply has got to last you until next summer. It’s time to select reliable prey, or at least a meal that you’ll enjoy throughout the duration of the cold. This, ladies, is the mentality of the Cuffin Season participant (Haha. exaggerated of course) and if you’ve fallen victim to the numerous “Hey stranger!” “Hey, we should get up?” text messages, you can rest assure knowing that you aren’t the only one…There’s more. Read their stories:
“One of my favorites is when the guy has spent the entire summer hollering at different girls. You’ve seen him out with 6,7,8 different women and then all of a sudden he’s like ‘Yo, you wanna go out? No, I’m being serious, like I really want to date you.’ You can’t take someone serious if you’ve seen them out and about and now they’re trying to settle down with 1 woman. It’s not fair to the girl and it isn’t fair that you’re misrepresenting so… come on!” - Alliccia, 29
“I think it usually happens around the end of August for me. I start getting bombarded by text messages. And I stress the word BOMBARDED but that might just be because I know a lot of guys. Last week, I saw a guy that literally showed up to my party earlier in the summer with another girl. He had the nerve to ask me what’s up with me and him! Come on son! I know the games. I am the master player? Figuratively speaking of course haha. Another guy’s been liking all my posts and pictures on Facebook and it’s like, Dude! I’ve been posting pictures all season. Where are you coming from? My advice to the guys, start a little earlier than the bunch. How about you start beginning of August so that she can’t sniff your a** out. You’ll also avoid the competition. Haha.”- Rein, 24
“I’ve noticed that a lot of random guys who I haven’t heard from in a year will hit me up on Facebook with the networking approach. For example: He’ll hit me up to ask me about martial arts or he’ll say something like ‘Hey I was thinking about getting into teaching’ or ‘My friend wants to get into teaching. Let’s meet up to talk about that.’ In this case, I’m just thinking ‘Really? You teach?’ Haha. Every year around this time I get it. I just remind them that I have a boyfriend. I’m not even sure why they waste their time contacting me, when they already know that. – Samantha, 26
I think I’ve experienced just about all of these incidents lol. Happens to the best of us. And if it’s happened to you, you’re destined to repeat this cycle each year unless you get boo’d up or learn better (i.e. this blog).
I usually brush the random text messages off with a hint of triumph (It feels good. Trust me) unless I’m interested in the invitation. Don’t automatically take offense ladies. He may have just gotten his act together and now wants to give it another try with you. Or if he’s a newbie, his intentions may exceed the usual spring cuff expiration date. Whatever you choose to do, make sure it makes you happy. Don’t be scared to lay out your thoughts on the table. Example: “So let’s be honest with each other. Are you looking for something casual or more serious? Let’s make sure that we’re on the same page regardless of the option that we choose to go with.” Could stump him but all good. At the end of the day, you’ll know the truth and then you can make a valid decision.
Until then folks… Cuff! Or temporarily cuff away!
PS. Here’s my bela cuffin season experience!
PS.S. Random… Guys aren’t the only one on the hunt. I recently went to a rooftop party in Harlem and chatted it up with some new feme faces. A good amount of them shared this thought: “Summer’s almost over. We came to meet guys.” Haha. So I’m not the only one.
