Word Wednesday: Cuffing

Oh baby, it’s cold outside and that means one thing: it’s “cuffing” season. What is cuffing you may ask? Well, this Word Wednesday 4E is about to educate you on this oh-so important word. You can thank us in advance.

According to notably credible source Urban Dictionary, “cuffing” or better yet, “cuffing season” is that time during the cold months when singles everywhere wish to hop on the relationship train desiring to be “cuffed” or cuddled in a ball of warm love. Urban Dictionary states, “the cold weather and prolonged indoor activity causes singles to become lonely and desperate to be cuffed.”

So, if you’re single and ready to mingle or just want an extra body to keep you warm on those cold winter nights, then “cuffing” is a word you should familiarize yourself with! But, how do you find your cuffing partner? Oh don’t worry, 4E has a few ways you can find a winter bae.

  1. Get on a dating app
    This is a fool proof, option plenty way to meet someone ! You can hop on Tinder, Bumble, Hinge, Happn, Grindr and many more. Just start swiping and you’ll find a cuddle buddy in no time.
  2. Get on Spoonr
    If you’re looking to skip the awkward small talk and happy hour dates, then get straight on Spoonr.  I didn’t even know this kind of thing existed, but apparently Spoonr is the #1 cuddling app. I guess there really is an app for everything.
  3. Get the newest edition of the girlfriend/boyfriend body pillow
    If you’re looking to just skip the whole human interaction thing altogether but still want to feel cuddled by an inanimate object (#creepy), then look no further than the “boyfriend/girlfriend cuddling pillow.”  You’ll feel loved and get to skip all conversation and effort at the same time.
    We hope that you keep warm over these next few months and find your perfect cuffing partner. Honestly, skip the dating apps and pillows…dogs are the best for cuddles!

Word Wednesday: HAUNTING

haunting_shadow4E is here to keep its readers hip and in the loop.  So, if you haven’t already heard, the new word on block is “HAUNTING”. What is “haunting” you may ask? The new form of ghosting; haunting is when one breaks off the relationship without explanation or contact, but still communicates indirectly through social media.  If ghosting wasn’t bad enough, haunting may be the ultimate low of our awkward relationship or “lack there of” culture.

So, what are some examples of haunting? 4E is here to help.


You were totally ghosted last weekend by let’s call him “Michael,” but you two are still friends on Snapchat.  You thought everything was going great and you even had a Snapchat streak of 4 whole days! But, that is all long gone, as “Michael” has stopped all communication for a whole week.  YET, HE STILL VIEWS YOUR STORY LAST NIGHT OF YOU EATING A CHICKEN QUESADILLA AT EPI!!! The sore reminder of him hurts the pit of your stomach.  Delete your “Michael,” ladies!


Girls can ghost and haunt, too! You totally thought that you and let’s call her “Jessica” hit it off at that VIL A golf party.  You even took her to Georgetown Cupcake for a casual date on a TUESDAY night!!! After which, you thought it appropriate to Facebook friend her.  She accepts and you two see each other for three weeks.  And by that, I mean you go home with each other for three consecutive weekends.  When all of the sudden, you never hear from “Jessica” again and thus, you have been ghosted. Two weeks later, you see her name pop up on your notifications that she liked your new profile pic.  Confused? You should be. It’s probably best to just unfollow or unfriend her as it’s still a sore subject among your bros.

4E hopes that after properly defining the word HAUNTING, you will now know that there can be something worse than ghosting.

Word Wednesday: Yuge

tkpsnqhdzzo1y9lco6nsEvery Wednesday, we at 4E aspire to teach the rest of the Georgetown population about relevant and hip words that everyone should use in their everyday conversation.

This week’s “Word Wednesday” is all about “YUGE”.  As cited from Urban Dictionary, “YUGE” is a variation of the word HUGE used by Donald Trump.  Examples include “Hey Don, are you building that tower across 5th avenue?”  Donald: “Yes, it’s going to be YUGE!!”

And in case, you still don’t know what this may sound like, 4E has even included a video starring the very entertaining Jimmy Fallon and Trump himself.

Now here are some examples of “YUGE” can be used at Georgetown….

Hey Billy, are you going to that Brown House party tonight?  Billy: Yeah, it’s going to be YUGE!!!!

Hey Matt, are you ready for that Vineyard Vines sale on M St.?  Matt: Yeah, it’s going to be YUGE!!

Hey Ben, are you going to Chicken Finger Thursday this week? Ben: Yeah, it’s going to be YUGE!!!  

Thank you, Trump, for helping us out with our Word Wednesday.

This article in no way endorses Trump.
