Fiance and I don’t live together yet, but he is always at my house, but leaves before 11 or 12 because of work and school for us. We were talking and he told me the only reason he is ever up that late is because we don’t see each other during the day due to crazy schedules and late afternoon/evening is when we can be together. He thinks that bed time when we do finally live together should be like 1030. I on the other hand am very much a night person. But I always thought there was some sweet romance to going to bed together, the pillow talk, all that jazz, but if I am up an hour after him, that isn’t going to happen! So bees, do you go to bed at the same time as your SO? How did yall work it out if you had really different sleep schedules when you moved in together?

We usually go to bed at the same time, but rarely go to sleep at the same time. He falls asleep as soon as his head hits the pillow. I, on the other hand, have terrible insomnia (especially lately) and am often up at least an hour after he falls asleep. I take my computer with me to bed and either hang out on weddingbee or watch a movie/TV. He sleeps through it all. It may not work for everyone, but it works for us.

We used to… but then I started my 2nd year of grad school.
He tries to wait up for me, but tonight for example, he walked in about 20 minutes ago and mumbled something about being sleepy… but I had 2 more lesson plans to write. So he went to bed and started talking to the cats very loudly about how nice it was that they come to bed with him when “someone else won’t” (yeahhhh he’s hilarious….)
but now he’s konked out – I still have a little bit of writing to do and where am I? On wedding bee!! Haha… Fail.

We always are in bed at the same time. We usually will cuddle and talk about our day, and just have some quality “us” time that is otherwise rare, as we live with two other roommates. But he doesn’t go to sleep, he waits til I’m asleep and then he plays his PSP or his laptop in bed until he is tired as well. I really like our arrangement. We get to have nights together, but he isn’t forced to go to sleep too early on my account.

I wish we went to bed at the same time. I suffer from insomnia (I can’t fall asleep til 3-5AM). He goes to bed around 12-1AM and I go to bed later He also has a job that requires him to get up at 7am and I’m a college student with no job.

Strife and I are apart right now, but we usually go to bed at the same time, cause otherwise it feels awkward unless one of us actually is working on something.

Sounds like me, I have to leave for my clinical an hour drive away in like 6 hours, totally not sleeping yet. I’m thinking having Fiance here after we are married will get me better sleep habits!

Hah. Well, I just slept from 7pm-12am and will not sleep again, Rath hasn’t gone to bed yet.
This is totally normal for us, we can both sleep with the lights on and music/movie playing. We also live in a studio so there is no place to go to work.

Yes, even if we have been fighting we go to bed at the same time. Fiance likes to say that’s what makes our relationship work, lol.

This is usually what is waiting for me when I finally go to bed:
I thought that would happen too but we’ve been living together for over a year now and I’m still stuck in my procrastinating/insomniac ways…heh… I have to be at clinical at 8 am myself. What are you in school for?

Are we the same person? Lol. I can’t sleep for anything!
I’m sitting here, in bed, next to my sleeping Fiance as I write this. He’s been asleep for a good hour. I’ve BEEN here, but I am not even close to being tired yet. Honestly I really want to keep organizing my books but that’d be too loud and obnoxious. So here I sit, posting random stuff on the bee.
I would bet that nearly 1/2 of my posts happened because he was asleep and I was bored.

Fiance used to always stay up later than me, but that’s changed in the last couple weeks. I’ve been staying up REALLY late/early morning.

Most of the time we go to bed at the same time. Sometimes one of us is exhausted and passes out early, but it’s not the norm.

I think we make sure we go to bed together but we do have the same day pattern, we are at work during the day and get up at the same time.
It’s really nice to snuggle down together and relax. I always love falling asleep with him, then waking up next to him. He’s the last thing I see at night and the first thing in the morning – it’s beautiful 🙂

Usually lay down together, but he will go to sleep before me if he has to work. I work nights so there are times where I can’t fall asleep even if I am tired. There are some weekends though that I fall asleep before him.
