Tip #1: Be sure to clearly communicate the parameters of your cuffing situation. Kickin it? Cuddling only? Dates that take place outside, in the sunlight? Sex?
Tip #2: Cuffin should not automatically be confused as a booty call. However, a 3am call is a 3am call. Ain’t no talking or cuddling bout to be had at 3am!!
Tip #3: With that said, if things do turn physical, stay protected . You need sunblock in the summer, right?
Tip #4: Cuffing does not automatically equal waking up together and to one person making the other "cheese omelettes". Love Jones. Never assume that the cuffin session is an overnight visit. And don't be surprised if he/she dips out in the middle of the night. If discussed, be ready to leave in the morning with no breakfast (Refer to Tip #1).
Tip #5: Each cuffer is allowed one or two backup partners, but the original partner should be reached out to first to see if available.
Tip #6: Inter-seasonal cuffing partner changes are not allowed! Partner(s) should be decided upon prior to November 1st.
Tip #7: Keep cuffing sessions off of social media! The last thing one of your cuffing partners needs to hear is that you're cuffing and it's not with them. Respect is key in all interpersonal relationships or else... #dressedinallblackliketheomen
Tip #8: Do not be surprised if your "purely cuffing" partner gets mum during the holidays. Also, just in case they don't go M.I.A. during the holidays; don't automatically assume that means you're getting a gift for Christmas or an invite to the family dinner. Both of those assumptions are a great way to find up looking like an ass.
Tip #9: Should you decide to be snowed in with your partner, it may turn out like that Fresh Prince episode with Will smith and Tisha Campbell. So always be prepared for the worst.
Tip #10: Should you decide to become an item with your partner, note that your relationship may turn rocky at the first sign of spring.
*Play close attention to Punxsutawney Phil because if that lil n*gga sees his shadow, it's curtains for cuffing season.
