The guy I'm seeing snores. Not really loud but enough to keep me awake (I'm a light sleeper). I'm a person who needs restful sleep. He wants to be together like all the time, but I have never been able to stay with him for more than 3 days in a row because I don't sleep much when together. When I think about it, I didn't sleep well with H when we were married either. How do you guys do it who have partners who snore?

Ask him to sleep on stomach. If it's really bad, recommend he take a sleep study. A doctor may be able to better help after such a test. I took one. I was told I slept better on stomach and hardly snored when I did.

Ear plugs and a white noise machine covers pretty much all snoring noise. And failing that I can usually poke him into rolling over, which cuts the worst of it.

The only way I've ever found to deal with this problem is sleeping in separate beds. Earplugs don't work for me. I can still hear the snoring. White noise machines don't work either. Maybe for some people but I tried this stuff with my ex and after months of poor sleep and my health beginning to decline because of it, we eventually got our own rooms.

My mom almost always sleeps in a different room. She prefers it colder as well so she can keep the temperature lower. It has been that way since I was little. My best friend also moves to their couch if her husbandís snoring is too bad.

I just sleep less well those nights. Only a few nights a week. No biggie.

My late husband snored and I wore earplugs. Not all of them work well. Sometimes even that didn't help and I wound up poking him all night. Seems the snorers always fall asleep first too. On mornings where I had to be up early one of us would sleep on the couch.

Just get ear plugs and you should be all set.

How do you live with someone who snores?

I had to last night, but it turned out to be my housemates' 21-lb housecat.
