Day 6: Not a Lot To Talk About.
I knew there was a reason I was dreading Night 6, we’re both worn out from this busy week we have been having. We saw each other for less than an hour until 10:00 pm today and between work and school and getting our sweet pea to sleep it was late until we could crawl into bed. Neither of us were feeling “it” so we decided some full body massages were in order. We used to give them to each other on a weekly basis but somewhere in the shuffle they were lost. Not only are they relaxing but they also helped put us in the mood. Well, they hadn’t lost their charm because by the time I was done giving Jake his we were both worked up and yet relaxed. It’s weird what a relaxed mood does to a love making session. Instead of the “hurry up and get it over” mentality we came into the bedroom with the session lasted quite a while and ended on a happy note.
I have noticed a difference between our experience and what I have seen on the show. On the show it appears that things start out slowly, couples are almost reluctant, awkward and unsure about the whole process because they are in a state of disconnect. Because Jake and I are not doing this to save our marriage we started out positive, excited and zealous. The difference in this seems to have opposite effects. Where the other couples started slowly and built up momentum ending the week excited we are becoming exhausted. While the sex is still good we are looking forward to it less before hand. It could just be a coincidence but it’s interesting none the less. For example, I’m already dreading tomorrow – I’m excited about the vow renewal but wondering how we are going to fit in and romance with the busy activities of tomorrow. It’s another day where we will only be at home together for a few hours during the day.
