    My Couch - My Comfort ...

    I've been separated for a year and a half ... most of this time I have slept on my couch.  I actually have a very comfortable new bed and a lovely bedroom but there is something so sad about sleeping in a big bed all alone.  I get through the day okay for the most part but when...

    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

    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.

    I never thought I'd be sleeping alone so much as a married woman. Looks like it's his turn on the couch tonight. For some reason It doesn't bother me anymore. No hard feelings.
