It's not always the big things that ruin the relationships. Sometimes, some seemingly harmless little things can be as dangerous or worse. Thoughtless bedroom behaviour on your part can put off your partner and cause a strain between the two of you, even without you even realising it. Doesn't matter if you are an Adonis in real life, but if you are a slob in the bedroom, it is pretty much GAME OVER for you! So for the sake of your relationship, here are 7 bedroom habits you should avoid like plague.
Keeping your bedroom messy: Call us corny, but the bedroom is your temple of intimacy. There is no bigger sacrilege than littering it with unwashed clothes, newspapers and remnants of a big pizza you ate on the night before. Looking at the pile of rubbish on the bed will only stress you out. So keeps it uncluttered and neat.
Eating on the bed: No, we are not talking about feeding each other chocolate dipped strawberries in bed. It's impossible to eat on the bed without spilling crumbs of your food in bed, especially if you are eating chips or other crispy snacks. This is bound to invite the local ant population to party on your sheets. Good luck getting bitten by these pests during moments of intimacy.
Using your phone on the bed: We get it. You are your smartphone are inseparable. But being glued to the screen while your partner is vying for your attention is just plain mean! When you are in bed with your partner, everything else can wait. Shower them with the attention they need when you are in bed with them. Save that funny video you wanted to show them for some other time.
Watching TV on bed: It's a great idea when the two of you want to unwind after a long day with something light-hearted. But watching TV when your significant other has sex on their mind is a bad idea! It kills the mood and is downright disrespectful to your partner. Don't be surprised when you receive nothing for Valentine's Day.
Working on the bed: It's a big no no to drag your work to your bed. Stress is the last thing you want to associate with love making. For a good sex life and for the overall well-being of your relationship, avoid working on the bed or even talking about work!
Sleeping with your child in between: Nothing paints a perfect picture of a happy family than the picture of mom, dad and baby all sleeping together on the same bed. As idyllic as it sounds, sharing the bed with kids can throw a spanner in your sex lives and ruin intimacy between the two of you.
Not addressing health issues: Not addressing health problems like snoring, flatulence, burping, low-libido, incontinence etc. can be a real dampener (no pun) in relationships. Your snores could be robbing her of a good night's sleep. Similarly, gastric issues can put people off, even if you have been with each other for a long time. So make an effort and address those issues before your partner packs up and leaves.
