Don't get me wrong, I love sleeping with my girlfriend, but I can't have any part of her body touching me if I'm trying to sleep. I can't even sleep if we're lying face to face. I think it's because her eyes are touching me. We both have to turn our backs, which from an aerial view looks like a seriously pissed off sleeping arrangement. So how do you sleep at night?
My friend who has ADHD used to twitch and thrash around so much before he fell asleep that his girlfriend thought he was giving off "LEAVE NOW" signals. Which wasn't the case, he just doesn't like taking Adderal.
And Hollywood lies! Movies show couples falling asleep after hours of insane sex, and waking up cuddled together as if they've never even considered skin sleep phobia. Lucky so-and-sos.
And don't get me started on summer heat. I'd love to sleep-spoon, but I'd put money on waking up in a sweat swimmingly pool. It's just never going to happen for me. I need cotton in my life.Surely I can't be the only person allergic to body pillows. How do you sleep when you share a bed? Can you fall asleep on top of your partner?
