A relationship that last for only a couple of months. Usually during the winter months.
Hiber- comes from Hibernation.
Ideally you meet a hibermate on New Years Eve so that you skip the end of year gift giving holiday season. If you work it right, you can send a message break up message on Valentines Day with a practical, rather than romantic gift. You can then be free and clear by Saint Patrick’s Day!
I found the perfect hibermate. After I get through these cold winter months, the hibermate is getting kicked out the door.
