This or That: Snorer or Bed Hog?

Though you're not even close to living together, you've recently kicked up the amount of nights you stay with your boyfriend. At first, perhaps because you were so excited about sleeping over, things seemed nearly perfect, but you haven't gotten a good night's sleep in weeks. Would it be worse if he . . .

This: Has a terrible snoring problem? It starts the second his head hits the pillow and then continues on and off throughout night. The worst part is even if you’re able to fall asleep, his loud, nasal snore manages to wake you up.

Or . . .

That: Constantly pushes you out of bed? Every time you wake up, you’re hanging from the edge of the bed and he’s sprawled across the middle with all the sheets! It’s all the more frustrating because he makes you feel like you’re not even there.

Snoring is worse, I seriously can't sleep. My boyfriend is a bed hog. I always end up at the edge of the bed, but I'm the blanket hog.

bekkachan i'm sorry ANYONE is a bed hog in a twin. there is no such thing as a wide twin. lol. i have a queen size and still had trouble. but on a twin? there's barely room to CUDDLE.

id' rather deal with another bed hogger, only because i am one. snoring wakes me up not as much as it used to, but still pretty well. i had a guy who took up hella space in my bed and I finally just learned to push back. it's nothing personal so why not just push him too? it ended up perfectly because it revealed a lot about his personallity [he needed to be cuddled with, instead of him cuddling with me.] and i ended up getting most of my bed space back . :D

Urgh, my boyfriend and I kept trying to share a rather wide (almost full) twin bed last year, and I learned that he was a TOTAL bed hog. I would wake up five or six times during the night because he had pushed me so far off I only had one arm & leg still on the bed! (Actually, what woke me up was that terrible drop you get in your stomach right when you're about to fall off of something.) Of course, from what he says, I would get my revenge - when I would turn around and cuddle up to him to sleep, he says I would turn him around and try to "fluff" him like he was some pillow or stuffed animal! So I think we're even. :D

bed hog is worse IMO. i grew up with my dad snoring every night a room away from me and my ex-boyfriend snored a lot also so i am used to it. i like to spread out when i sleep so if my boyfriend did also i would not be okay with that.

My ex would talk in his sleep, snore, kick me off of the bed and it drove me crazy (none of it on purpose of course). I can handle snoring and talking, but kicking me off the bed is not okay.

my dude snores, talks, gets up and starts boxing with the nightstand/closets. sometimes while still in a state of slumber he shakes me and goes 'hey, hey....HEY'.. it's really an adventure every time i close my eyes to sleep at night.

Snoring is the worst!!! Ok a bed hogger is an easier prob to solve- you let the person get past the middle of the bed and then push them off(HARD) they get up and you say "oh i'm sorry i guess you were too close to me"'s fool proof!!!they'll be more cautious about the space they take=)

I grew up hearing really bad snoring ... I'm used to it and the fact that my boyfriend will occasionally do it. But I like to have my space, and hate when someone crosses that line.

My husband is a huge bed-hog. I spend most night sleeping on the couch. Then he always gets all offended that I won't sleep in bed. Hello, stop pushing me out of bed, then!

Wow, RockAndRepublic...what a woman!...I like your style... I'm relieved to say that I do not snore or hog the covers. My last girlfriend took all the covers though and talked in her sleep - she used to have whole conversations about all kinds of crazy subjects. It was very entertaining! (bluebellknoll, that was a really funny story!)

ugh neither! last bf was both! it was so nice the first time i stayed the night when the guy i'm currently seeing. he doesn't snore and he's a sweetheart even in his sleep! Recently i was sick and had a cough throughout the night. he would pat my head or be sweet and tell me that it was okay and ask if i needed anything then cuddle up next to me.

Apparently my latest ex was a huge snorer, but I could sleep right through it and never woke up. Even his roomies would complain they could hear him through the walls. I do hate being pushed off the bed though ... so rude.

I think the snoring would be worse. But I could always try earplugs.

Snoring is much worse! bluebellknoll, that's hilarious!!!

ok, so considering the fact that I am usually the bed hog, I think snoring would be the worst..I am so bad tho, I have woken him up in the past if he starts snoring and I am awake and super tired so he could stop lol

Snoring is worse - I hate to be woken up by it because I'll have a hard time falling back asleep. This reminds me of a story my friend told me...her hubby is a bed hog plus he's a spooner. He would bed hog and spoon her until she was on the very edge of the bed so she would get up and get back in bed on the other side. hehehehe

That sounds like us. I am a snorer. He is a bed hog. He is 50% deaf, though, and can barely hear me. So he's the evil one in that bed.

A punch in the face will cure both.

bed hogging is the worst, i can go to sleep to just about anything-so snoring is pretty manageable
