According to an article in the Los Angeles Times, a recent study conducted at the University of Pittsburgh’s Sleep Medicine Institute has found that women can be grumpy and upset with their partners if they don’t get a good night’s sleep.
At first when I saw the tweet “pitching” this article, I thought it was a joke (simply because this seems like a bit of a no-brainer); yet I kid you not – an actual study was performed for this information.
The study involved 32 couples being monitored for 10 nights, having their sleeping patterns analyzed. The following the day, the reseachers surveyed the couples to see how they were getting along, then produced their results and findings from there.
Hm. So I suppose the next time I hear a friend mention that she’s upset because her and her significant other having troubles between the sheets, I should assume she means sleeping, not sex – right?
