Ugh. This is SUCH a huge issue for us. I am a super light sleeper and every little thing wakes me up. We do not cuddle and I usually end up shoving FH to the other side of the bed. We actually sleep in seperate rooms sometimes too just so I can get some sleep! I don’t really have any advice b/c I have the same issues…

We have a queen size bed and when we go to bed we like to snuggle. As we fall asleep we move away from each other but we are always touching, either hands or feet or bums LOL!

If he is encroaching and I need more space I just ask for it “Babe can you move over please?” and he does the same! It works for us!

We often sleep in separate rooms. Yeah, I said it. I’m a really, really light sleeper, and any little thing will wake me up. My husband is loud and shakes a LOT in his sleep, and wakes me up a lot, which, in turn, wakes him up, and it’s just a mess some of the time.

Luckily, we have a very comfy guest bed that he’ll sleep in if we’re having a rough night, which is a few times a week. It’s weird because we’re married and we don’t have any problems. We just really need our sleep!

We also have a full-sized bed, and it’s just way too small. Whenever we stay at hotels with King-sized beds, we sleep together like babies. We can’t wait to buy a king-sized bed when we move in a couple of years.

My husband is a huge cuddler. Lucky for me (ha!) he’s also a heater. So he makes me really hot when he’s cuddling. Eventually, he’ll roll over, and I’ll finally get some room to breathe! I love it though…there’s nothing better than falling asleep in his arms. He just needs to roll over as soon as I fall asleep haha…

We have been sleeping on a single together for over 2 years. I know that is crazy but we are used to it now. Needless to say, we sleep very close together. We go through a lot of positions- I spoon him, he spoons me, I put my head on his chest and he wraps his arm around me. Sometimes we are both lying on our backs and he is squished up against the wall, poor thing.

I love to cuddle, but not when I’m trying to sleep!  We have a queen and we pretty much stay to our own sides.

We start the night by cuddling by the end of the night we are not so much on eachother but something is always touching, feet, arms, holding hands, etc..

He is ALWAYS hot to I love to cuddle up with him and keep toasty. 🙂

We’ll usually spoon as we’re falling asleep, but then part ways. I tend to sleep in all sorts of ways – on my back, side, stomach. My fiance prefers to sleep on his back, which causes him to snore and me to (initially gently but growing stronger with each one, as I become more exhausted) kick him until he rolls onto his side. He’ll stay there for a while, roll onto his back, and we’ll repeat the process. If it gets really bad, I’ll just spoon him to keep him on his side. Or one of us will admit defeat and go sleep in the guest room or on the couch.

We are so not cuddlers. We’ll snuggle for a few minutes but when we’re ready to sleep, we are on opposite sides of the bed.

And usually the dog is between us.

We have a king sized bed, so I NEVER feel him to come bed (he always goes to bed way after I do except when we are out late on weekends).  I can’t imagine sleeping in a smaller bed, let alone a twin!  Props to you xoxo!!!

I’m the same way, I need my own space.  So we sleep very much apart.  I never got how people could get comfy with someones arms all over them!  We cuddle, then go to sleep in our corners lol.

We’re not cuddlers either. Usually when we first go to bed we’ll cuddle a little and talk about our days, the next day, whatever, then we kiss goodnight and scoot to our respective sides of the bed. Then we always stick one leg over so our ankles cross haha. Its the only part of us that can be touching though or neither of us can sleep.

We always go to bed at the same time and are serious snugglers.  My husband claims he can’t fall asleep without snuggling.  I don’t know how much of an exaggeration that is, but I do know that we do cuddle as we fall asleep and when we wake up we are still always touching in some way.  We try to keep the room really cold so that we don’t get too hot.

We have a full-sized bed and have thought about getting a larger one, but decided against it beause we pretty much sleep on top of each other as it is.  I doubt we’d use the extra room  Even when we’ve been in a hotel room with a king bed, we both sleep together on one side or in the middle.

I like to be left alone, on my own side of the bed, so I can sleep on my stomach. The ONLY time we fall asleep cuddling is if i am dog dead tired and it’s on accident. I think I’m JUST NOW getting used to having a constant bed buddy =]
