Dear Poll: When Sharing a Bed, Does Size Matter?

One of my friends and her beau must always sleep in a king-size bed. When they go to a hotel, they request one, and she's reluctant to stay with me because my full-size guest bed is "soooo tiny." (Hey, at least it's not a twin!) I guess they need their space to spread out in order to catch some zzzz's.

So I was wondering, when sleeping with someone else, does the size of the bed matter to you?

i have a bed a little bigger than a single bed. but its good. like i said before, we didnt have sex yet. but we do take naps together. and i need my space when i sleep. i mean i dont get all huggy wuggy while sleeping. and we do have the space for the both of us. its good enough. but no way am i napping with him in a smaller bed. bigger is fine. smaller? a no no.

size definitely matters. queen sized beds seem to be perfect. we've slept in king sized beds before but we just felt like we were so far apart.

My husband and I shared a twin size bed one night. It was okay for one night but I wouldn't want to have that forever. We only have a full and I'd like a bigger bed but it's not at the top of my list.

My Boyfriend is 6'-6" tall. We will squeeze into a full if required, but really only fit in a queen minimum! He has to bend his legs to fit legnth wise & that takes up a lot of room. We have a queen in our room, and it works great. It's the best most comfortable bed in the world.... now if I could just find perfect pillows......

alot of the time no. depends who im sleeping with. with the significant other - no. with the friends - no, in fact in most cases since theres 4 of us we squish alot. but if its someone im not too familiar with but am stuck with a temporary arrangement then a little personal space helps. but im not fussy

I've shared a twin without too much discomfort, so the bed size doesn't matter THAT much, but I'd rather have at least a full.

I've shared many a twin size bed when at University! Me and a ex-boyfriend at the time shared a twin sized bed for like a year or so before we moved into our own place. Now me and my boyfriend have shared a twin sized bed (in his old place) briefly before we moved into our own flat. Now we have a double (ikea sized) and it's fine. We manage just fine though in any size bed really. :D

It absolutely matters. I don't mind a queen or king, but I definitely need to have my own space when I sleep!

the bigger the better. I do like having a lot of space in bed, at times.

I hear you, amvbob. I'm 5'2" as well, and my boyfriend is 6'1". I have a double and when he sleeps at my place I always wake up in the middle of the night, clinging on to the edge of the mattress for dear life, trying not to fall off! We definitely need to get a bigger bed once we get married - hopefully a king.

bigger the bed the better. I sleep on the edge of the bed with little quilt, but as soon as I am asleep i hog the whole bed and the covers. I feel terrible but its my subconscious doing it I swear!!! So a King would be a nice upgrade for us when we finally get our own place. A King wouldnt fit in our room at the moment, a queen fits just right though :)

It definitely matters with me! I love sleeping in the middle of a bed, so when I share it, I usually wake up sprawled out all over or unconsciously kick my bed-mate to the very edge on their side. If I have to share a bed with my sisters, they do the same thing, so the biggest bed possible is preferred. But with my boyfriend, he never moves when he sleeps so it doesn't matter, but I'm sure he'd prefer it if the bed were big so I don't like pile drive him at night haha.

My boyfriend stays over in my room during the school year and we're cuddled up in a twin bed. It's kinda nice since we're basically forced to cuddle!

A queen bed is plenty big enough for my hubby and I.

Fallen: LMAO "like camping"! lol Hell Naw! scoot your a*s over! lol I need a queen or a king depending on the size of the guy. I'm kinda small, but i need my space .

i don't sleep well with other people so when i have the choice (like in a hotel) i take a king. i personally have a queen- i could not imagine a double. if i have to at someone elses house i obviously suck it up but i don't get much sleep. someday in the far future when i get married it will be a king bed all the way. or bigger haha

My boyfriend and I seem to manage on my full size just fine. We've actually slept on a twin size with no problem, but then again, I can sleep almost anywhere. :)

My husband and I once spent a month sharing a twin bed at his family's beach house, and it was fine. Not preferred, but we didn't suffer.

Definitely need a king. I am a cover hog and my bf snores. I don't know how anyone does anything smaller.

I wouldn't mind if it just for a short time of period. so I guess size does matter for the long run - like everything else in this world.

I shared a twin for at least half of college. I felt smooshed, but it wasn't intolerable. We have a full sized bed now, and it's enough room. King size is way too much room - feels like I'm not sharing a bed at all.

I said it does matter-- I mean, we dealt with twin for a LONG time because we started dating in college. But honestly, even the Queen feels tight at times. He is a big guy-- beefy ex-rugby player-- so we just need the space.
