Cold Days, Warm Nights

You don’t have to be from the House of Stark to know winter is coming. This week was the evidence to show us that winter is indeed at our doorstep. I feel like I am in the majority when I say I am not looking forward to going toe to toe again with Fargo winter.
The howling winds may give one a feeling of dread, but it is all based on perspective. While thinking about the upcoming winter I came upon this tidbit that could help us get through it—this is the best time to meet that special someone.
It might be hard to believe or even comprehend, but I will show you my reasoning. As you may have noticed, the colder it gets the less effort people seemingly put into their appearance. Less than ideal, however, it makes it easier to find someone with a good personality.
Appearance may be the attraction, but personality is the reasoning you will stay attracted to them. The freezing weather can eliminate the smokescreen of superfluous appearance additives.
Although you won’t be able to go to the beach, a snowy night is the perfect condition to sit in and watch a movie. It is a simple and affordable way to spend some time together. The bonus there also being the closer you are sitting in proximity, the warmer you’ll stay—catch may drift?
Lastly, finding your special someone now allows you to grow more attracted as time goes on. No one honestly looks as good during the winter as they do in the spring and summer. By then you may have built a solid relationship. The swimsuits will come out and that person will be even more special as you have fun in the sun.
So go out and mingle. You will be happily surprised when you see the person as who they really are. There is a lot more beneath the hat, scarf, mittens, boots, jacket, sweatshirt and sweatpants than meets the eye.
