The weather is heating up, and that can only mean one thing — it’s “sneaky link” season, at least according to social media.
Unlike “cuffing season,” which hits during the fall and winter when single people settle into serious relationships, sneaky link season is a bit less wholesome.
Here’s why everyone on social media is talking about their sneaky links.
What does sneaky link mean on social media?
The term sneaky link refers to a secret lover. As Urban Dictionary brashly put it, “When you and another person are f***ing but don’t want anyone to know about it.”
According to @bsnake89 sneaky link hours are between midnight and 4 a.m. which definitely implies that there’s something a little unsavory about these private romances.
Here are some examples of sneaky link culture on TikTok:
The user @famousnyaa showed off a meet-up with her sneaky link and was sure to obscure the mystery man’s face.
Then @deniseayala2 gave a sneak peek at her sneaky link beauty regimen including shimmering body lotion, racy lingerie and luxury perfume.
@lovereese___ took things to the next level when she revealed the reason why she wouldn’t share her water bottle with a friend after seeing her sneaky link.
