T’s not a big fan of scary movies. He likes to say they’re boring and pointless to hide the fact that he’s actually scared of them. Back then I’ve always gotten him to see scary movies with me but ever since my move back, there’s been no luck on getting him to go until about a couple weeks ago, and even then it was hard to get him to agree to go, I had to use the best of my best persuasion skills for us to go. The movie we saw was Paranormal Activity, and ever since that movie he hasn’t been sleeping well. I vow to myself that I will never ask him to see a scary movie ever again. Yes, it’s that bad, and yes, I feel that bad for getting him to agree in the first place.
We were probably one of the first ones to see it in Minnesota, and we had no idea what the movie was going to be about. Rather, I didn’t know what the movie was going to be about. I mean I saw the trailer, but I didn’t know it was going to be like that (I don’t want to ruin for those of you who haven’t seen it yet). If I had known, I wouldn’t have asked T to go in the first place, but what’s done is done. The night of the movie, I was forced to sleep over, and we couldn’t sleep at all. We had to wake up to make it on time for his 11 o’clock class but he decided to skip it since he was so tired from not getting any sleep. And for the rest of that week he slept over at his best friend’s house, after a week of that he’s finally been sleeping at home but not in his room, which is cute and funny all at the same time, but I’ll have to admit I do feel bad. Even when I’m sleeping over at his place, we sleep in his room but we both can’t get any sleep. He does crazy things and it makes me scared so I wake him up and it’s all just a continuous cycle…haha.
And on top of not being able to sleep in his own room, he has me stay on the phone with him until he falls asleep, then I hang up around 7 or 8 in the morning cause I know for a fact he’s sleeping then. I could hang up earlier when I hear him snoring but just in case anything crazy does happen. Well tonight is the first night since the movie that he’s decided to try and sleep without me on the phone. So far so good.
Wow. I can’t believe I just typed up that much about my boyfriend being scared!
