It's officially cuffing season where people get into relationships for the holidays. But there's another trend that is on the rise. Winter coating.
Winter coating is when you go back to an old flame for the winter season and then drop them as soon as the weather warms up. Dating expert Crystal Cansdale said, quote, "Winter Coating offers the comfort of staying inside, watching Netflix and not actually dating, with someone you've already established this dynamic with."
Crystal explains that "Winter Coating takes toxic cuffing season behavior to a new level, and unless you’re 100 percent on the same page as the other person, it has to stop."
