Give her a pair of pajamas, spoon her and make her feel safe and comfortable.When you do that, she’s going to be aching to have sex with you, and it doesn’t matter what date it is.In reality, it’s about having great sex rather than just getting laid.
And wouldn't you know it, it'll be the moment you decided to pop to the shops without a scrap of make-up, sporting stringy unwashed hair and those baggy telly-watching slob-out clothes he always hated you in.
Yet somehow, as Sex and the City's Carrie found after her numerous goodbyes with Big, that doesn't make coping with your heartache any easier.
