Your 2023 Cuffing Season Horoscope
After a dramatic summer full of makeups and breakups, this fall is looking a lot more promising for your dating life. This month, two eclipses will push you to cultivate a deeper relationship with yourself. First, the solar eclipse in Libra on October 14, 2023, will ignite a spark in your heart. Then, later in the month, a lunar eclipse in Taurus on October 28, 2023, will close out a dramatic chapter that's been holding you back. The astrology of October lays the groundwork for internal changes that will heal past wounds in your heart.
November starts looking brighter when Venus enters Libra on November 8, 2023, giving you a chance to really fall in love. Whether single or spoken for, it's time to open your hearts to romance. You've had your fun dating around; now it's time to find someone to cuddle with during holiday movies. And finally, when Venus moves into Scorpio on December 8, 2023, you'll feel the urge to dive deeper into your relationships. As the days are getting darker and the nights are getting longer, you'll want to spend your time with the people you have the most intimate connections with.
Dating Trend: Checkmating
Dating has evolved beyond the traditional questions like knowing your date's favorite color. Nowadays, it's about creating meaningful connections through fun and engaging activities. According to Eventbrite's data, there has been a significant increase of 188% in attendance at interactive game-based events, including blindfolded dating, this year. These interactive dates are great as they bring out people's competitive and playful side, offering a glimpse of how they handle challenges, solve problems, and showcase their creativity. This trend is gaining popularity, especially among younger generations who prefer laid-back ways to connect with others and have fun while getting to know someone.

Dating Trend: Throwback Dating
"Throwback Dating" is a new dating trend rapidly gaining popularity as people yearn to relive (or experience for the first time, mainly Gen Z) the iconic moments of past decades that offer a sense of comfort and familiarity. This nostalgia wave is sweeping the globe, and Eventbrite has observed a remarkable 50% increase in attendance at throwback events. Imagine immersing yourself in an artsy 90s-inspired painting night, competing against each other in a retro video game tournament, watching a classic drive-in movie under the stars, dancing to the tunes of a live 80s cover band, or singing karaoke with your crush. What could be more romantic?!

It's a fantastic way to break the ice and break a sweat at the same time. You can challenge your date to a game of pickleball, run together and enjoy a drink afterward, or connect while kayaking. This trend offers a dynamic and engaging approach to dating, creating a low-pressure environment where you can have fun and get to know each other better. It's also the perfect date to find someone who shares the same lifestyle you do and possibly even has similar hobbies!
