It has started to cool down nearly every where which means its time to examine those winter boos. Look, I get it. Relationships are hard work. Everybody needs a break from them. You go from having this person you enjoy having around to not knowing if you want to see them at all. Or they hurt you. Or you hurt them. Most people go through periods where they are happy to take a little time for themselves.
And let me tell you…that time is summer. Not winter. I’m not saying you have to find a husband or wife, but (as already discussed it is ‘cuffin season) it definitely makes more sense to have somebody than nobody when its cold outside. To that end, this really doesn’t apply to people who live in Miami, Los Angeles, or anyplace where the possibility of 75 degree weather in January is high. For the rest of us people who experience the full range of seasons, where are five great reasons to find a winter boo.
1. Cold feet need feet warmers
Cats, dogs, and blankets make great feet warmers. I know. But you know who started this feet warming trend? People. Some man or woman stuck his feet under another person and realized it was the best thing since sliced bread which may or may not have been invented at that point. Why do you think the blanket was invented? Because somebody was lonely and had cold feet. Don’t even look it up. Trust me, I’m a blogger.
2. Christmas presents
If you meet somebody around right now and winter boo it up, you all with both have to do the “how much should I spend” dance for presents. But here’s the silver lining: PRESENTS! Do you know how much it sucks to become an adult and not get Christmas presents from anybody anymore? Parents send cards and socks (true story). So its nice to get a little something from somebody who just wanted to do something nice for you.
3. You’ll have somebody to hold your popcorn at the movies
Many, many moons ago, one of my best friends told me that the reason she wanted a boyfriend was because she needed somebody to hold her popcorn for her in the movies. It was so profound I nearly jumped out the window of my ground floor apartment. Nearly. Well, winter time is movie season since it’s so cold out and its just not as fun going solo and if you taking popcorn to the bathroom is a major no-no.
4. You’ll waste less food than normal
Winter months tend to keep people in the house more. Which means people are cooking more instead of eating out. If you live alone that means you have LOTS of leftovers, many of which will never get eaten. Throw a person you enjoy in the mix and #wallahmagic you’ve got somebody to share that load with. Plus its way funner eating with somebody than without somebody. I think Master Splinter said that.
5. Snow ball fights
Have you ever tried to have a snow ball fight with yourself? Exactly. Winter boo snowball fights followed by winter boo hot cocoa by a picture of a fireplace and Netflix is as good as it gets. Bet that up.
