Hello & Happy Monday! Cold season is upon us! Did y’all know it’s 6 weeks until Thanksgiving?!?!? Which means 10 weeks until Christmas?!!? Yowza! Anywho. Cold season is upon us which means people wanna be low key booe’d up, but not together, just warm between the sheets. A cuddle buddy…don’t ya know. This is when people you ain’t heard from in for-eva start sending you the ‘hey how ya doings’ texts, gmail chat or FB beeps, or you might even get a phone call!

ENJOY!

The Applicant also acknowledges and understands that the CB position is effective from October to April with no guarantee of renewal for subsequent October to April periods. The CB relationship time period can be amended based on mutually agreed upon terms between the Applicant and the Cuddle Buddy Seeker (herein “the CBS”). If selected for interview, the Applicant will provide valid documentation of information including, but not limited to, age, marital status, and proof of residence. The Applicant also understands that the CB position does not guarantee sexual relations. However, should the opportunity for sexual relations present itself, the Applicant will furnish proof of being STD/STI free. Said documentation will be valid for a period of 6 months or less prior to the initiation of sexual relations. The applicant also agrees to utilize method(s) of contraception and STD/STI prevention.

I don’t think there’s much else to say except – I love this! I absolutely love this! Even if you don’t ever really pull it out and make someone sign it, you can mentally consider all these categories while you scour the streets for someone to hold you tight at night. In the cold. And the dark. And whom you can shed like dead skin when the flowers start to bloom. What do you think? Do you have cuddle buddy criteria?
