Super curious to see how many of you go to bed at the same time as your partner and how that compares to other characteristics of your relationship! This is meant to be fun!


In your response but the question number and your reply only.
1. Do you and your partner go to sleep at the same time at night? 2. Do you wake up at the same time in the morning? 3. Are you the morning person or is he/she? 4. How long have you been together?
Cheers!

    My husband and I are on opposite schedules. I’m a morning person and he’s a night ow. It’s kinda nice because it gives each of us our quiet time to start or end the day. 😊

    No. And we actually have separate bedrooms because we were single for way too long to get used to it.
    He also is a writer and will often get up in the middle of the night to write/research for a few hours and that would ruin my sleep LOL

    1. Sometimes, usually yes. He's in PA school doing his clinical rotations so right now his hours are different month to month.

    2. No, because of above answer

    3. I am a morning person 100%, he is not

    4. We have been together going on seven years, living together going three years

    We’ve been together for 9 years, we will get in to bed together quite early but I will stay up for a few hours watching TV in bed, he wakes up early for work, usually 5am and still wakes up early on the weekends. He’ll stay in bed reading the news or something till I wake up. We tend to like to do everything together and be in each others pockets all the time. I am very happy to be on my own but I like to share everything with him because everything is better when we’re together so we spend every second that we get with each other.

    Similar to Samantha, we sleep in separate beds most nights. I don’t sleep well and it works better this way. He goes to bed about an hour before me and wake up a bit earlier but we’re mainly on the same schedule. He’s much more of a morning person! We’ve been together 7 years.

    We have different work schedules, so we go to bed/wake up at different times. He goes to bed between 7 and 8pm depending on the day because he usually has to be at work at 4am. Hence, we don't wake up together because he's gone by the time I wake up. He tends to wake up early on weekends just because he's so used to getting up so early and usually can't stay up too late anymore. We're both technically night owls, but work has turned him into a forced morning person. We have been together for a bit over 8 years and have lived together for 7.

    1. Practically never.

    2. No. I get up at 4:30am, he doesn't get up until somewhere around 9.

    3. I'm the "actual" morning person, but it should be noted that he is a "morning" person in a different way.... he has an artistic/creative job, and his streak of creativity usually hits around 2:00am. Technically morning!

    4. We've been together over 23 years, lived together 20.

    No we dont sleep at the same time. He works 3rd shift so he goes in at 630pm and gets off work at 530am. I work 3am to noon so usually the only time we even see each other during the week is for about 3 hours before he goes to work. On weekend he will usually come to bed about an hour before I get up so we will sleep together for that short time. Before we both got our current jobs we did sleep together.

    We mostly go to sleep and wake up at the same time, but if one of us is wiped and the other isn't, one will go to bed before the other.

    I'm definitely more of a morning person, but my husband needs a bit more time to actually get himself alert enough to function in the morning, so we wake up at similar times. Its rare I will sleep in past my husband. I LOVE mornings. He struggles with them.

    We've been together for almost 6 years (married for 1).

    1. Do you and your partner go to sleep at the same time at night?

    - we try to but usually he's more of a night owl so i sleep first typically and he falls asleep later but he will lay in bed with me until he sleeps.

    2. Do you wake up at the same time in the morning?

    - we do! i don't have to but i do so that i can see him off to work

    3. Are you the morning person or is he/she?

    - i am more than he is, i think

    4. How long have you been together?

    - over 5 years now

    1. We don't go to bed at the same time. He goes to bed earlier than me. Usually it isn't like he purposely goes to bed. We will be watching TV in bed and he will pass out. So I take his glasses off, set his alarm, plug his phone in and continue watching TV.
    2. He wakes up first and then wakes me up for work, I sleep through alarms.
    3. He is definitely a morning person, maybe because he goes to bed before me. And we will have been together for 4 years on August 15th.

    1. Not typically, unless I stay up later than usual. We tried going to bed at the same time for a little, but he would just lay staring at the ceiling and not get a good night's sleep.

    2. No. I have to get up earlier than he does for work and on weekends, my sleep schedule doesn't change much.

    3. Neither of us are natural morning people, but I'm forced to be.

    4. We'll be celebrating 4 years together (1 year married) this September.

    In the summer especially, our schedule completely revolves around him racing and dealing with car stuff throughout the week, so it's bit more rigid than our winter schedule.

    1. We do normally go to sleep at the same time, unless he's at the garage super late and I'm tanked and don't want to wait up for him. Usually I'll stay up until he gets home (between 10-11pm normally) and we'll go to sleep within half an hour or so. We used to eat dinner when he got home so I'm glad we changed things around from that lol.

    2. He wakes up about an hour and a half before me and is gone by the time I wake up and get ready on weekdays. On weekends the dog usually wakes me up around 6 or 7 and I'll go feed him and get him settled before we go back to bed with my fiancé until 9 or 10.

    3. Based on my last answer, neither of us are morning people lol. Maybe we would be if we got more sleep or went to bed earlier. I usually wake up earlier than him, but I'll fall back asleep within half an hour or so.

    4. We've been together for 5 years and moved in together after 10 months, so we've been living together the majority of our relationship. He got a new job 8 months ago where he's usually working 10 hour days and has a 45 minute commute, so that's changed our schedule a lot since before we would get up and get ready together then carpool to work.

    1. So we have a three month old and I work part time in the evenings for about 2-3 hours after my husband gets home from work so he takes her upstairs and watches her while I work. Usually, I am done with work by 8:30-9:00 and by then she is asleep so I go to bed then and he will go back downstairs and just relax for a while. He normally comes to bed around 11:00-12:00. Even before I had our daughter, I would normally go to sleep by 10:00 so we have never really gone to bed at the same time.

    2. Not really. Our daughter usually wakes me up between 5:30-6:30. His alarm starts going off at 5:30, but he typically ignores it and goes back to sleep. He doesn't actually get out of bed until about 6:30-6:45.

    3. I am not, but since our daughter wakes up early I am up with her. My husband is a morning person though.

    4. About five and a half years

    It depends because he works different shifts being military. If he's on day shift we go to bed at the same time and he wakes up 30 minutes before me. Thats my preferred schedule otherwise I hardly see the guy.

    He's much more of a morning person than I am.. I get rather grumpy. We've been together almost two years.
