    I sleep on the couch

    because it's preferable than being near my soon-to-be ex. Good thing it's comfortable. Can't wait to not need to sleep on this thing, truth be told.

    Its Just A Lot Less Stressful That Way

    My wife and I don't share much intimacy anymore.  So we've just ended up that I sleep on the couch.  Does get old sometimes.

    When I'm Stressed Out

    So my bed is a tad broken nd I'm still expected

    to sleep in it so I just tend to go downstairs nd sleep on the sofa. Plus surprisingly metronomes help me sleep. Dunno why but to me sofas have always been comfier. I could live in a house with no bed if I wanted nd just use my sofa :3
