Cuffing Season: The period between fall and winter where singles enter relationships to stay warm and stave off corny couple FOMO.

The fun and flirty vibe of the spring and summer months incinerates relationships as people begin to leave their lovers for unrestricted freedom.

As sultry nights turn into cold evenings, the prospect of enduring the frosty weather alone emerges, and tethering yourself to someone else increases in appeal.

A successful thottie summer may have resulted in relationships for some; however, for the remaining parties of one, the danger level of being alone for the holidays soars from low to extreme.

Potential mate scouting for those looking to get a head start on love lockdown started in August; nevertheless, procrastinators need not worry.

Tryouts for cuffing season are upon us, so we’ve created a playlist to help you make your game plan.

As Ariana Grande’s “Imagine” confirms, daydreaming about your relationship with your desired target is par for the course when organizing your roster.

We go like up ’til I’m ‘sleep on your chest

Love how my face fits so good in your neck

Why can’t you imagine a world like that?

Imagine a world

Once you’ve selected your MVP, like Jhene Aiko’s “While We’re Young,” you’ll want everyone to know it, and you’ll have plenty of pumpkin patch pictures to prove it.

I’m tellin’ everybody you’re mine and I like it

And I really hope you don’t mind, I can’t fight it

No, you know I cannot hide it ’cause I am so excited

That I finally decided on you

While the season may result in a few successful match-ups, for those that would rather not pair-off, they can take solace in knowing they don’t need anyone else to enjoy the holidays. Not only is being single better for your bank account but as Zedd and Kehlani’s song “Good Thing” points out, two is not always better than one.

I like my own company

Company, I don’t need it

I’m not always cold

I’m just good on my own, so good on my own
