“Seasonal Dating Disorder seems to be another obstacle plus-sized ladies must deal with in today’s relationship environment,” said Woo Plus co-founder Michelle Li.“Sadly, at this festive time of year, we feel it necessary to put out a warning…I’m married but couldn’t help but wonder what this is all about…
SDD is linked to a rise in melatonin in cold weather, which triggers a slower pace and a preference for snuggling at home, Li said.
If you recently started dating someone and things start to cool off come warmer weather, “It’s not you, it’s me” may take on a whole new meaning.
The important thing is to prepare yourself mentally and be able to move on in a healthy way.
“SDD clearly has a biological basis.” Though the disorder is not a yet classified as an official medical disorder that I’ve found, it’s certainly a phenomenon.
One Woo Plus survey respondent named Ashley shared a personal story of SDD.
