Separate bedrooms

Near Heathrow

I'm not in a relationship atm (obviously) but a little too much wine and JD after a really long week has got me thinking... Don't separate bedrooms just make so much sense?

I don't get why we go our whole lives having our own rooms but then when we become a couple we have to suddenly share? I feel like I'd still want my own room if I moved in with someone (and not half because of the amount of useless shit I own!). Also absence makes the heart grow fonder, no? Plus I just like my own space.

Do any couples on here have separate rooms?

I’ve always had a room/man cave. Own space is important

We have our own space but I like that time when we are close sharing a bed. Until he starts snoring then I'm off!

I've thought about this before and I'd totally prefer the option. I lived with an ex who worked nights 8pm-8am a few times a week and I secretly loved this time alone - going to bed whenever I wanted, no one making me hot and I didn't have to listen to her snoring! she wouldn't have been so keen though so its not for everyone.. but more couples seem to do this these days and I think it sounds brilliant!

Not for me. I'd much rather be wrapped around Sam and snuggle in than sleep alone. We also have enough self interests and do our own thing that the time spent together is amazing

My ex and I sleep separately but I think it was for different reasons though. My marriage was rocky towards the end so it was a matter of just having our own space really. It does get tricky when your kids starts to notice and ask questions. I suppose we are all brought up with ideas that couples or even parents should have joint bedrooms. It just becomes part of the norm I guess and I would say having separate rooms may have been a good idea but it depends if you have the space for it.. if not then sofa it is then

Interesting post. We actually have separate rooms. All started when I was working some rather unsociable shifts and has just carried on. Adds that little something when we have sex, it's a case of my place or yours lol. We have an open relationship and handy for entertaining too, if either of us want a guest

If we could afford it, I'd love this. I mostly don't mind sleeping together but sometimes I get insomnia and it would be cool to have my own room to go to. Mostly though I'd just love to have my own space.

I've always needed a separate bed to go to when in a relationship. I didn't always use it, maybe 60% of the time, but I just don't sleep well next to someone else. I've got stupidly sensitive hearing and snoring, even heavy breathing, can stop me from sleeping. Cuddles were always had last thing at night and first thing in the morning though.

No I would never co-habit again. Separate houses a few miles apart are the nearest I would get.

I’ve had a few meets with one chap of here, whom asked me to sleep in the “spare room”

When he asked, my heart leapt with joy! I fidget, like to spread out snd knew if I was in a bed on my own I’d get a far better nights sleep. Was a school night

So he asked ever so politely, I responded with a yes sure, he then showed me the room made sure I was comfortable and tucked in and I had my glass of water, cannot sleep without one!

then just before he went off to his own room, he asked if I was really ok with this as most ladies kick of at the idea and thrown a hissy fit, I reassured him it was all good, while thinking thank fuck I don’t have to worry about farting/fidgeting etc...

On other occasions with exes or others in here I have got up and made camp on the sofa in the middle of the night before where I’ve not been able to sleep next to the person for whatever reason

I need either my own room or a man who sleeps like a log and doesn’t wake up or get annoyed with my fidgeting

Well without wanting to sound patronising clearly you haven't found the right person yet???

Sharing your life with someone is just that sharing everything.

Separate beds for a healthy fit young couple is frankly odd.

You can have your own space this is important to keep your identity and individuality but sleep in separate rooms.

Separate bedrooms are very useful if you're considering sharing your relationship with others, especially when cuckolding. That must be why royal couples so often have them.

Why rude, it's my opinion. She asked I think it's weird simple,we are married and have been together for over 30 years, if either of us decided to sleep in a different bed or room I would think that very odd.

And only rude if you are trying to start an argument or is it simply that I'm not part of the little cliquey forum favourites and I have an opposing view to yours.

So I'll say it again.

For a loving couple in a long term relationship or even a couple in a new relationship relationship it's odd to want to sleep in separate rooms for anything other than medical reasons.

Actually woukdnt mind that arrangement. I snore badly and I would rather my partner went into another room than endure it.

Also I too like my own space. So it would suit me just fine.

Yes I know I am.a weirdo but I have spent the vast majority. Of my adult life single I would be ok with it.

It's the way to go. For me living together was too intense. I was losing my own identity. I have a nice feminine space now and can leave my stuff everywhere without annoying anyone, and he the same in his house.

I love going over to visit him and then being like "right, I'm off home" and I only have to cross the patio

The dream for me would be a bunch on interconnected houses or maybe a small block of flats (I'm polyamorous) so I didn't have to go outside to visit . I love sharing a bed on days off but we have very different sleep schedules and I'm always being woken up by him coming to bed hours later (I'm a light sleeper) and then I struggle to get back to sleep. He's a very heavy sleeper and can sleep through me coming in when he's asleep or getting up and getting ready for work.

I can understand the snoring side of it with light sleepers.

To me if your needing sepereate bedrooms whats the point in being together.

Yeah there is jobs out there where partners are never there.

Having that together time is special if you cant theres just no point.

I'm in a healthy relationship and love my partner to bits but most nights I would jump at the chance for a bed to myself. I'm a very light sleeper and my partner snores, fidgets and itches loads in his sleep and it drives me insane and wakes me up multiple times a night. A good nights rest is so important to me as I struggle with awful fatigue and it is hard work sharing with someone when you're constantly being disturbed. It's not his fault but it stresses me out.

My happy place

I can see the appeal of seperate rooms at times but I think being snuggled up to another person wins. Though if you're single long enough suddenly sharing a bed can take some getting used to again. I'd worry it would be like two people living in a shared house that fuck from time to time and it would feel empty and cold.

That London

The implication that having seperate rooms means you don't sleep together almost all of the time baffles me.

You each have your own space, but share those spaces. I work odd hours so coming home late I'd go to my own space. If my partner woke up in the night and decided to join me that would be lush.

If insomnia hit I'd grab a laptop and work in the other bed till I felt sleepy.

Why is that so weird?

"I've been single over 18 months now, and don't think I could cope with sharing a bedroom again. I like my space, I like having the bed to myself all night. Every now and again would suit me

"

I could do ever now and again

"The implication that having seperate rooms means you don't sleep together almost all of the time baffles me.

You each have your own space, but share those spaces. I work odd hours so coming home late I'd go to my own space. If my partner woke up in the night and decided to join me that would be lush.

If insomnia hit I'd grab a laptop and work in the other bed till I felt sleepy.

Exactly. I'm not saying I'd never share a bed with my partner, I just would like a back up option for whenever I want to spend a night by myself. I don't get why certain people are trying to pass off their "opinion" as absolute fact, especially when it's for the purpose of shaming anyone who disagrees

In my OPINION, I think being comfortable and secure enough to be able to express wanting to spend a night or two by yourself makes for the healthiest relationship but hey, what do I know? I just haven't met the right person yet, obviously.

If my husband suggested separate beds I’d be upset and it would probably put me off being intimate with him. If one of us had a health reason for it then fair enough but I wouldn’t be happy to share separate beds or rooms otherwise. I love the cuddles, scratching backs, intimate fondling, spontaneous sex and daft conversations we have when lying in bed.

We have friends who have slept in separate rooms for around 20 yrs now and he pops into her room for sex then leaves straight afterwards and goes to sleep in his own room. She’s used to it now but it doesn’t make her feel good.

"I can see the appeal of seperate rooms at times but I think being snuggled up to another person wins. Though if you're single long enough suddenly sharing a bed can take some getting used to again. I'd worry it would be like two people living in a shared house that fuck from time to time and it would feel empty and cold. "

If your relationship only feels intimate and special when you go to sleep together at night and feels empty and cold at all other times then your relationship needs to be worked on tbh.

I don't mean you by the way, just in general.

Yeah, it’s never seemed like an even relationship to be honest. She deserves better.

Yep, for me it would be great to have the option rather than it being about us permanently sleeping separately. It would be especially good when we work very different shifts or I'm struggling to sleep. I can think of so many ways it would be handy. We could also both sleep in the room of the person who has to get up later so the person getting up early can sneak out to their room to get ready for work, hopefully allowing the other to go back to sleep.

My last relationship we lived separately and stayed over with each other at weekends, I loved that Sun-Thurs I had my own space & bed to myself. We did this for over 5 years and it worked well.

He moved in and we only lasted a further 6 months, mainly because I struggled with sharing my space and bed 24/7.

I think living apart together is the way forward for me, best of both worlds!

No with insomnia is I don't really sleep much at all so and she is the sort how loves her sleep.

It's it just respect.

But I will go to bed with her And cuddle till she is asleep. Or she might come in to me. Sex is Generaly when both not working and there is time. I don't like quick sex and could not leave after that would be strange..

I have the loft conversion, and the Mrs has the bedroom below. It's been that way for 13 years.

My sex drive is a lot lot higher than hers, so I prefer it this way for masturbation, which she is happy with. Suits us both.

I'd want a shared bedroom but then have my own space in the house too, maybe a dressing room for me to chill in and store all my girly stuff!

"I'm not in a relationship atm (obviously) but a little too much wine and JD after a really long week has got me thinking... Don't separate bedrooms just make so much sense?

I don't get why we go our whole lives having our own rooms but then when we become a couple we have to suddenly share? I feel like I'd still want my own room if I moved in with someone (and not half because of the amount of useless shit I own!). Also absence makes the heart grow fonder, no? Plus I just like my own space.

Do any couples on here have separate rooms?

Well without wanting to sound patronising clearly you haven't found the right person yet???

Sharing your life with someone is just that sharing everything.

Separate beds for a healthy fit young couple is frankly odd.

You can have your own space this is important to keep your identity and individuality but sleep in separate rooms.

Weird."

and yet multiple people on the thread have agreed with her - healthy relationships look different for everyone

"But some folk do snore and that can get pretty miserable really, so understand why some have desperate bedrooms.

I can understand the snoring side of it with light sleepers.

but the ladies do snore as well

To me if your needing sepereate bedrooms whats the point in being together.

Yeah there is jobs out there where partners are never there.

Having that together time is special if you cant theres just no point. "

if you don’t sleep well beside someone as you are a light sleeper or they snore, i don’t see how that invalidates the rest of your relationship

wasn’t aware insomnia was a requirement for entry to the healthy couples club

Yes it worked really well, but then I’m older/divorced and already have kids and no desire to go down that route again so less reason or need to live together full time.

Prob not an ideal set up for youngsters.

I see that differently.

sooner or later it gets old.

I will help anyone out that im a partner with, But when it gets to the stage your only wanted for the mans chores at weekends.

You do think whats the point, You certainly feel like a mug for the ladies.

Who only want you at weekends

for shopping.

someone to comfort with.

mans chores e.g gardening, hedge trimming, the list can go on.
