You never wait for each other

These are the types that get in deep sleep before their partners get to bed. There’s no time for cuddles, or pillow talk. Consider this as a drift in the relationship. Something is lacking and it needs to be addressed.

You wait for each other

You and partner make sure that you don’t go to bed at drastically different times. You value your time together and that’s when you both you disconnect from life and focus on each other.

You get ready in the bedroom together

You can have separate bathrooms but you always find yourself in each other’s bathrooms. Whilst he’s brushing his teeth you’re on the toilet seat brushing your hair. It’s a cute sight and shows that you’re strongly bonded.

You have ‘the talk’ in bed

The only time you feel comfortable with addressing pressing issues in your relationship before you dose off. This shows a lack of spark in the relationship, bed time should be bonding time not problem solving time.

You’re both on your cellphones

More often than not your face is lit up by your cellphone or laptop screen. You hardly listen to each other hence most of your responses are always half hearted. You might be using your devices to escape from each other.

You whisper sweet nothings to each other

Without a doubt, fighting ot not, you always seal the day with a goodnight kiss, and an I love you. You’re madly inlove and you never want the other to forget.

You share

This is a time for you to reflect on the day you had. Both of you release the tension you might have pushed aside during the day. This is a sign that you trust each other completely and your bed is a safe place to release any kind of emotion.
