When the ____ Moves Into Your Bed and Romance Moves Out

When the ____ Moves Into Your Bed and Romance Moves Out

So you’re getting all prepped and ready for a little sexy time, you make your entrance into your bedroom and the dog is already in your bed looking back at you like “What’s good?” and your mate is tucked in with the dog, cracking up, quoting and watching the movie Friday. Can you say mood killer? It seems to have become a trend now, once you’re out of the “honeymoon” phase, so let’s talk about a few of our new bed buddies and get us all back to honeymooning real soon!

 

Work, work, work, work, work, work…

Many of us know the pressures of corporate America or even more so entrepreneurship. Always having to stay 10 steps ahead, sooooo you bring your laptop to bed. Hell your laptop becomes just as mandatory as your pillow. Now, where does that leave your mate? Are they watching you as you type away? Are they moving, shifting and readjusting in hopes of you getting a clue? Here is where you need to weigh out what’s going on here. I’m sure your mate will be totally understanding of the occasional work-in-bed night, but you cannot make this a habitual thing. Your relationship needs nurturing, and your bedroom is the place where much of that happens, so it’s important to make sure your mate is getting the attention he/she needs in order for you to maintain and to grow together, and look at this way, work will ALWAYS be there, so make sure your mate stays too.

 

 

So Very Social…Yet Anti-Social…

You know what time Tim checked into the local pub, what color dress Danielle chose for the wedding coming up, but do you know how long it’s been since  your man/woman has crawled into bed and is waiting for you to put down your phone?  Exactly! It’s quite simple in this case. It is not necessary for you to be on social media while in bed with  your mate. If it’s work related, please see previous Work, work, work, work, work paragraph, if not, shutdown Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat (geez, I could go on) and give the person who shares your bed the affection and attention they deserve.

 

 

See Spot Sleep In His Own Bed…

We all adore and love our fury family members…of course…of course…BUT there are times when our relationships need nurturing. There are times when it needs to be just the two of you. That’s it. Not saying, now and forever more, but you need to be able to connect with your mate without your little buddy giving you the head tilt (dog owners will know what that means) as he wonders why you’re in those odd positions and what those strange sounds mean.

 

 

Romper Room in the Bedroom…

Now…the biggest romance killers of them all…kids. Ahh those little angel faces really know how to put that fire out, don’t they? Well, let’s see if we can get that spark back. Simple, put the kids to bed, and get your time in while they’re sleeping. One thing’s for sure, you never know if they’re going to sleep through the night, so timing is everything. If you have to maneuver like a ninja to get out of their bedrooms as soon as possible, then you do it for the sake of having some alone time, because you never know when you’re going to wake up to a foot in your face and a toe up your nose.

 

 

Mission Accomplished…

Now that your bedroom is all clear of distractions, let the romance/love making marathon begin…or if you’re like most of us you’ll probably pass out from all of the work it took to get the alone time. Either way, enjoy.
