This is the most important rule. Cuffing season would not have such a high success rate if availability was a conflict. As much as you expect your partner to return a text or phone call, so should you. If you are a work-nut throughout the day, establish a time between the two of you to either call each other back or link up. Keep in mind—you want his time and attention, but until we’ve graduated out of cuffing season and into relationship territory, it’s important to g-check your neediness and expectations.
