GTKY: When watching TV with DH/SO...

Do you sit on the same couch opposite sides, same couch and snuggle, separate couches, different rooms?

We do separate couches.  He lays on the big couch and I relcine on the small couch.

3 ectopic pregnancies (EDD's 1/30/12-tube removed, 6/2/12-methotrexate and 10/2/12-methotrexate)
IVF and Natural FET resulted in BFN's and a hole in our wallets
Natural BFP #4 on 9/7/12 gave us our miracle on 5/18/13

Re: GTKY: When watching TV with DH/SO...

  • Mostly separate couches. I call shotgun on the big couch and he either lays on the floor or sits on the love seat with the ottoman. Some times he will sit at the end of the couch and rub my feet, but usually it's only if I ask.

  • Same couch, different sides.  I always take the right (with the end table) so I can work on my laptop.  He typically takes the left and the dogs will cuddle in the middle cushion.  I'm definitely not a couch cuddlier...I think it's because our couch isn't long or deep enough!

  • We have a L shaped sectional couch so technically we're always on the same couch. We sit close to each other but not snuggling unless we're watching a movie. I usually try to position myself so my feet end up on his lap so he can rub them.

    Separate couches unless it's a movie night.... Then we move the couches together like a big bed and snuggle up!
      That is so cute!

    I agree.  That made me smile.  DH sits in the recliner.  I sit on the couch.  We have another chair, but it's usually full of my crafting stuff!  Wink

  • We usually sit on the same couch and snuggle (ie: we vie for space while trying to snuggle on a couch that is too small for two! lol)

  • hes usually laying on me falling asleep
  • Most of the time, we do same couch opposite sides. Although sometimes DH will prop his feet on me and I will rub them for him....and sometimes he lays his head on my lap/leg.  I will sometimes lay on his lap as well and he plays with my hair. I LOVE that. :)
