No, I’m not talking about sex. I’m talking about simply sharing a bed together and falling asleep. For those married folk out there, how many nights do you NOT sleep next to your partner? Do you not simply take it for granted that this is how it’s supposed to be? You probably don’t even think twice about it.
Now think if you had to go two weeks at a time WITHOUT your partner next to you.
Without trying to sound too cheesy, when we sleep together it’s comfortable. It’s like it was simply meant to be that these two bodies lay down close to one another and “turned off” for the night. I put my arm around her, she snuggles in, and all seems right with the world.
That first night apart? It totally sucks. Hell…the first three or four nights apart totally suck. I usually stay up later than I should just so my body is forced to fall asleep. Otherwise, I’d just lay there…tossing and turning…trying to get comfortable while my mind races.
It’s Tuesday morning and I’m already wishing it was April 15th, as that’s the next night I’ll be able to truly get a good night’s sleep.
