New Yorkers weathering the storm: We've had a crazy few days. And, whether or not you are stuck without power, at some makeshift refugee camp uptown, or Brooklyn-bound for the next few days, let's be honest — we all have cabin-fever. While a lot of us holed up solo in the dark or with roommates to stick it out through Sandy, a good portion of those in NYC had to suddenly become very close with their significant other (with differing results).
An enthusiastic piece over at Huffington Post has listed some great reasons why Sandy might actually be good for your love life. The forced intimacy has set some teeth on edge, but the sudden intensity of shared space can also, you know, bring you closer together. With the wind howling at your window, it isn't exactly ridiculous to think this tempest might provide some perspective on exactly what you and your special person mean to one another.
We gathered a host of stories from some NYC gals who had a variety of different experiences, hopefully shining a bit of light (no pun intended) on the best way to survive a forced staycation (especially when you haven't showered, have been stuck in the same clothes for four days, and literally can't stand to hear that weird clicking noise his/her jaw makes one more time). Are Sandy relationships doomed? Or can a little catastrophe camping do your coupledom some good? Read on as we break down stories into category, playing Sandy Sherlock.
