Spring has come in Okinawa

Okinawa has come into the spring season. I have heard, “Spring has come,” but it has a different meaning in Japan than just blossoming flowers and warmer weather.
One of my friends from school told me that when a girl or boy got into a relationship, people would say this phrase. It’s the equivalent of “S/He is taken.”
