My SO and I love each other to death but….sometimes we sleep in separate beds. Him in the guest, me in the master. I usually go to sleep before him and hog the bed. And he snores, talks, and has serious jimmy legs! I’m a super light sleeper, and have occasional insomnia. When I’m over tired, he sometimes opts out of the ‘master bed’ so I can catch a good nights sleep. Are we crazy, or does anyone else do this?!

We don’t have 2 beds right now so there is no option for that really. I wouldn’t mind it sometime though since he is a blanket stealer despite the fact he says I steal it!

Yeah we do that too. Esp when one of us has really bad GAS and it’s suffocating. 🙂 Also, 2 beds works perfectly if you’re fighting. lol.

My SO is gone 2-3 nights a week so I get the seperation I need. But he has gone to the guest bed when he hasn’t been feeling well just so that he doesn’t bother me or get me sick.

We don’t have two beds, but even if we did, we probably wouldn’t. We were in a LDR for 4 years and slept apart long enough :p Plus neither of us are particularly obnoxious sleepers.

The only time we don’t sleep in the same bed is when one of us is really, really sick! He’s a trooper for sleeping with me though because I talk in my sleep AND steal the covers… maybe in 5 years we’ll be sleeping in different beds because of my sleep antics! haha

I’ve always had a hard time sleeping with other people, even when I was on family vacations when I was younger and had to share a hotel bed with my sisters. We don’t live together yet but when Fiance stays over, I end up moving to the couch a lot of the time because I have such a hard time falling asleep or staying asleep. I’m sure 2 beds will come in handy when we’re married! lol

I travel for work so much. I hate every day that I am away from my Fiance.

We arent living together right now for some personal reasons before the wedding….but…when we were we would sleep apart quite often, especially in the summer since we dont have air conditioning and right now only have a queen size bed, so he gets real hot and likes to stretch out. Its really no biggy for us..

we don’t sleep together 5 nights out of the week due to when he works!

Thanks bees! Sometimes I just need a good sleep! SO always says its weird, its good to know I’m not the only one who occasionally enjoys it!

He is a very light sleeper, so we sleep in the same bed, but the smallest bed we can have is a king size bed (we’re both tiny people!) so sometimes it feels like two beds!
Sometimes when he does manage to get to sleep, he’ll snore so loud that I’ll move into the guest bedroom. That’s rare though, like once/twice a year.
I’ll also switch rooms if we fight and I can’t sleep – I toss and turn when there’s an unresolved issue, but he needs the time to cool down and only talk about it the day after… Fortunately, that happened only twice in three years, we don’t really fight…

Yes, we do a lot. I go to bed early because I get up very early. Fiance always falls asleep on the sofa and sometimes stays there until morning. But I’m also a light sleeper, which he is aware of and tried his best to accomodate that. He’s a good egg.

I sleep on the couch a couple of nights a week, because sometimes I like to stay up late and he has to go to bed at a reasonable time for work and I don’t want to disturb him. Also recently I’ve had a terrible cough so have slept on my own too.
I really enjoy sharing a bed with him, but when I have naps during the day in bed I do sleep better alone!

No we always sleep together unless one of us is really sick, then that person stays on the couch. Neither one of us has bad enough sleep habits, yet anyway
