How do you sleep? Hubby was joking last night that it’s just not normal that we don’t share covers.It’s true I have my blanket and he uses a sheet. He’s a polar bear and I freeze. When it’s really cold (in fl yeah right!) we share but I am a cover hog and end up stealing them anyways. just curious on how many others don’t share the covers.

two sets of covers are our secret to a lasting long term relationship!
Were both cover hogs, and neither of us can make up our minds if we want them on or off throughout the night. And i am a "nester" i have like 5 pillows and i make a coccon out of my quilt and… hmm maybe two beds is a good idea lol!

We work out quite well. We start out sharing, then at some point in the night, DH gets hot and kicks the covers off, but I’m a cover hog, so I end up coccooning myself with ALL the blanket he kicks off.
Then early morning, he will get cold again and burrow his way in somehow. More often than not, he’ll wake me up to give him back some blanket.

We tried sharing covers at the very beginning but either him or I would be freezing at the end of the night. So each have our own blankets. And I’m definitely a nester too, I have a light cotton blanket and my nice thick goose down blanket. Our dog also sleeps with us and she is a complete bed & blanket hog. Poor FI freezes becuse she likes to sleep with him at night.

We share covers. We’ve been sharing a bed for about a year and it seems to be working out. Sometimes he’ll complain I steal the covers and sometimes he steals the covers. But it’s not usually a big deal because we share a small (full size) bed and we’re both snugglers.

We try but it doesn’t work out so well. We now have 2 comforters on the bed just incase! 🙂 We also have 2 cats that sleep with us at night and they take up their share of covers! I wouldn’t have it any other way though.

We share. Usually he’s warmer than I am but it works out okay, we also sleep really close together so I get his body heat
I don’t think my response should have been, "doesn’t everyone" — but we do. I can see it not always working!

We did share at first, because I liked having my own comforter to wrap up in, but my husband (boyfriend at the time we moved in together) didn’t like that. He was really adamant that he wanted to share and snuggle up together.
It took me a couple of weeks to be comfortable sleeping without a comforter wrapped around me and actually sharing, but I got used to it.

The covers are mine! ALL MINE!!! Muah ha ha. I also skirk to the middle of the bed and end up getting pushed over to "my side" sometimes. I don’t share well…but i’m learning! But then again, maybe cramming on a full sized bed one weekend a month isn’t helpful.

At the beginning we didn’t share covers – we would each have as many blankets piled on ourselves as we wanted. Now, we are using our duvet, so we kind of have to. 🙂

Honestly, one of the only things I miss about being single is sleeping by myself! In the middle of the bed!
We try to share. We have a top sheet and down comforter on our queen size bed, which keeps us warm even when the house gets down to 60 at night. We have found out that apparently my behind is the hottest point on my body; sometimes I’ll have to roll over and stick my butt out of the covers while keeping my legs and upper body under! I think I’ll register for a king duvet when we register for gifts, just so there is more to share!

We have one set … and I just steal them. Plain and simply. haha. It’s ok though cause he’s a hot body anyway. We start the night under the same set, but typically within 30 minutes i’m all wrapped up and snuggled and he’s coverless and chilly. But it works for us. 🙂

We are not capable of sharing. Well, I am not capable of sharing, I am a big time blanket hog. We each have our own covers, if we didn’t he would freeze every night as I also insist on having the bedroom at sub-zero temperatures before I can sleep.

i use mine and "share" his! I am bad, once i’m asleep i am a covers thief! I sleep like a burrito. He keeps a comforter next to the bed in case i steal both.
