Say you are in a live in relationship; Do you occasionally just want to sleep alone? Why?

Yes but I am talking about actually going to sleep in lets say the spare room on purpose just because you want to sleep by yourself. I just did not think people did that.

I don't have a SO so I can't vote in the poll but, just so long as "sleeping apart" doesn't translate into 'sleeping with someone else', I don't see why it would be a problem.

I've done this in the past and not out of anger.. but simply because my SO was snoring or I just wanted space. Maybe it's just me but sometimes it's rather delicious to have the whole bed to yourself.. though generally, yeah, I would prefer the bed with the SO in it, lol.

YES. It is hard to get a good night's sleep with a snorer. The kind of snoring that shakes the bed, I swear. ha! ha!

There are several situations where it's fine to sleep apart. DH and I often do it if one of us is sick because we don't want to infect the well person. There's also snoring and insomnia (don't want my tossing, turning, and channel surfing at 3am to disturb him). Since I've been pregnant I sometimes find it hard to get comfortable when sharing the bed, so he'll occasionally sleep on the couch so I can get a good - well better - night's sleep.

My parents always slept apart. My mother liked to watch TV late and my father went to bed at 8pm.

I remember it making me feel bad. It made me think as a child they didn't like each other.

My husband snores. I try to DO everything different than my mother and father so I just ask him to roll over. I'd much rather sleep in the same bed as the man that I love.

He's fallen asleep on the couch and I've gotten out of bed at 2:30 in the morning just to bring him in bed with me

I guess I was just taking the thought personal and in reality it has nothing to do with me.. thanks for helping me think about it differently even though what ya'll are saying it just what he said to me.. he he

It just takes me a while to figure things out sometimes..
