It didn’t take long to get used to sleeping with him. But it took ages to get used to sleeping with his 2 large snoring bulldogs! We have a king size bed but we sleep on 1 side to make room for these bizzles. I kind of hate it but I deal with it because it means a lot to him

A former partner of mine was like a furnace. He needed a fan in the window with the windows open even in the winter! This is Utah people! A glass of water would freeze!
He couldn’t share a sheet or even know how to use a blanket honestly, so we slept in individual sleeping bags to regular our own heat. He later moved to his own room/bed. He was a difficult person to sleep with.
My husband though, we sleep great. We are not very big people and we have a king bed. It’s great! He doesn’t snore or flop around and knows how to use sheets.

@yanamari: Please forgive me, but I was actually grinning while reading the origional post because I find it so darn precious. XD I think it’s adorable to worry about this sort of thing (even though I can tell you are worrying about it in a pleasant sort of way)
I am a very light sleeper. Any noises, changes in light, or changes in temperature (like when the blankets come up above my toes) will wake me up. When alone, I used to sleep in the fetal position with a body pillow. It had to be juuuuust right. The pillow would have to be a little bit under my normal pillow (under my head) and it had to go between my knees (which I have issues with). The blankets had to be pulled up to just under my chin and over my shoulders, and I had to sleep in a dark room without light or sound.
All of that is now out the window. I sleep cuddling Fiance in pretty much the same way as I used to cuddle my pillow, now. Like yours, he’s a furnace (and I’m an icicle) but it works well. In the winter, he keep sme warm, and in the summer, I keep him cool (to a point). He likes to listen to podcasts or watch youtube before bed, so there’s always some noise or light going on when I’m trying to fall asleep. He can move a lot at night, which will ALWAYS wake me up. Happily, I fall back asleep almost instantly (and even on my own I wake up a lot) He’s even elbowed me in the face or boob or stomach a few times. Once he actually had a nightmare and woke up having punched me (lightly, thank god. He used to do boxing…) in the eye. O_O
Even with how awkwardly he sleeps, most of the time its a lot more restful and relaxing than sleeping alone. Couldn’t tell you why. Maybe because when I do wake up through the night (which I always have) having him there sort of sooths me back to sleep.
Sweet future dreams, lady!

I sleep fine with him, its me that keeps him up all night. I am for sure a bed hog, pillow hog, blanket hog, plus I move around every two minutes. It took him maybe a week or so to get used to me. But it must be ok, since he hates when Im not in bed with him.

I’m the world’s worst person to share a bed with. Like the kind who will wrap herself in the blankets (so you wouldn’t have any), steal your pillow, drool on it, and then kick you. So I had no problem, but Fiance took awhile to deal with me. He still sleeps in sweats and has a spare blanket for when I steal the covers. After 2 years we are finally sleeping well.

Fiance and I don’t live together, but occasionally like to have sleepovers, typically at least a couple times a month. It took me no time at all to get used to sleeping in the same bed with him, in fact I found that I fall asleep faster. He does do a couple things that drive me NUTS! I’m super OCD about my bed sheets being perfect (totally crazy, I know) and he tends to push them off the bed in the middle of the night which makes me nuts when I wake up. The second thing is he’s a morning person and I’m a night person through and through. He is typically up by 8 at the latest whereas I like to sleep until 9, so I tend to be bombarded with his chitter chatter in the morning and it makes me want to punch him in the face. Lol. I do love him, TONS! I’m not sure that is something I will ever get used to.
