London [UK], Sept. 29 (ANI): Have you heard of drafting season? Even if you have not, it's something you've probably been doing since you were a teenager.

According to The Independent, Drafting season acts as a precursor to the equally buzzword-friendly cuffing season, which is an entirely different article explaining why more people tend to "couple up" during winter.

During drafting season, single men and women start to wise up to the Bridget Jones state of affairs that could come to define the looming cold snap that lies ahead.

Compelled by a fear of being alone when the temperatures hit sub-zero and a reluctance to venture outside to an actual bar to meet an actual human being, the modern dater starts to become a little more proactive in their search for a mate.

Beginning towards the end of summer and extending into early autumn, drafters have already begun searching far and wide for someone to cuff with.

In my years of coaching singles on dating and relationships I have seen clear patterns in terms of the times of year where people are more proactive about finding love," shared dating coach Jo Barnett.

She concluded, "As Christmas is round the corner, winter nights are cozier and people have less enthusiasm to be out on multiple dates, they want one mate to snuggle up with on the sofa and hold hands for winter walks." (ANI)
