Maybe the dinner/movie combo is part of the problem. For example, you eat dinner, the blood sugar goes up. You go to a dim theater, the blood sugar crashes...and it's nap time.


Maybe try dinner, a walk around the park, or something like that, and THEN the movie?


Plus...I wonder, what time does the date typically start? I'm not young anymore, so, for me, if a date started at 9 pm...I'm going to be passing out at the theater too. (But I'm up at 5 in the morning Mon thru Friday).

The OP says she sleeps for 12 hours a day but is that every day or just on the weekends? How much sleep does she get every night?

Maybe he's just a very boring guy?

She needs to have a complete physical including blood work and urine analysis. If they come back clear, then she should check into a sleep clinic to rule out sleep apnea.

If she doesn't have apnea or anything else going on physically, then she may be depressed but I found anti-depressants made me very tired and sleepy. That was years ago, so they might not have that effect any more.

I have this problem in the winter. If I eat dinner and watch television, I get tired quickly because the sun goes down much earlier. I donít have this problem in the summer when the sun is going down at 7:30-8. Right now, sunset is a little before 5:30 here, so it is already dark by the time I finish eating. I also get up at around 5:15 M-F, so that is part of the issue. If the OPís girlfriend has an office job, I am guessing she is not really sleeping 12 hours a day on weekdays. That would mean that she is passed out at something like 7 or 8 and then not getting up again until that time the next day. She might very well have insomnia or have to get up early for her job and the OP does not realize it.

I used to date a girl with the exact issue. We would go in trips and she would be so hard to get going in the morning even after sleeping for 11 hours. I ended up thinking it was blood sugar and bought some glucose tabs and told her to eat them one morning. She perked right up, it was amazing. Doctor said she had reactive hypoglycemia.

Turns out she had a lot of stuff going on which she found out later including sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome (sleep study), and low B12 (MMA test).

It could be a lot of things, but in no particular order its probably sleep apnea, low vitamin B, Hypoglycemia, thyroid, possibly a medication or addiction issue, but you'd know that.

People say depression but I haven't heard of that causing nodding off at parties so much as they can't get out of bed.

I wonder if she is taking medication that makes her sleepy.

But if this is a change, she needs to see a doc.

She contracted something in Hawaii. Sounds like mono.

Not sure if she takes medication that makes her sleepy but I can ask. I know she takes something.

If she contracted something contagious, then I would have gotten it to then, wouldn't have I, since she got back?
