But just because you and your boyfriend have taken the plunge and are living together doesn’t mean that the hard work ends here…
When you finally meet a guy that you like enough to date for a long period of time, let alone decide to move in with, life feels pretty much perfect. You’ve won the dating game and don’t have to sort through all those losers anymore in the hopes of finding some kind of gem. But just because you and your boyfriend have taken the plunge and are living together doesn’t mean that the hard work ends here… or that you can both act super lazy.
You might find that cohabitation brings a whole bunch of problems that you never even thought about before. Some of those problems take place right in the bedroom (and they actually have nothing to do with getting busy). Read on to find out 15 bedroom habits that will eventually ruin the relationship. If you want to save your love story, don’t do any of these things!
1 Texting In Bed
Of course sometimes, if your boyfriend is already asleep and you get an important text message, you are going to have to answer it. But you do not want to text in bed every single night. You just don’t. That basically means that you are totally ignoring your partner and not actually spending time with him. Don’t you want to cuddle in bed and chat about your days? Don’t you want to get even closer and talk about the future?
Building a relationship with someone definitely means making sure that there is some level of emotional intimacy going on, and when you live together, chances are that all happens when you are in bed with your boyfriend. So put down your iPhone and start focusing on your relationship… before your guy gets super fed up and soon you are fighting all the time. That is probably not what you want.
2 Being A Social Media Addict
This is similar to having the bad habit of texting in bed but it can be even worse since let’s face it, you’re probably a social media addict. You can’t help it, right? Everyone is a social media addict these days, for better or for worse (and often, for worse, at least when it comes to your relationship).
If you don’t want to ruin your relationship, then don’t check your social media accounts when you’re supposed to be cuddling up to your boyfriend on a cold winter’s night or when it’s a sunny Saturday morning and you should be sleeping in together.
How would you feel if he was always more interested in checking his Twitter feed or updating his Instagram account instead of hanging out with you in your very own bedroom? Yeah, exactly. Sometimes it helps to put yourself in your BF’s shoes when you’re not sure if you’ve got a bad habit (and in this case, this is a really bad habit).
