Cuffing season is upon us, which means, if you're single, it's time to start pairing off with someone you can stand until at least Valentine's Day; because let's face it, the winter months in the Midwest can get bitterly cold and awfully lonely. Just ask anyone who's from Illinois, the US capital of being cut off from social interaction for at least 5 months out of the year.

The weather isn't the only thing that's cold in Illinois, so is the dating scene; and it doesn't what matter what time of year it is. Just ask these people on Twitter who say they're #singlebecause they're living in Illinois.

Have you tried Northern Illinois? No one's complained about the stateline area.
