    Men snore.
    How do you long term coupled guys deal with it? Do you get used to it? Even like to hear your man snore? Or does it drive you nuts?

    Do you snore....loudly?

    Is there a solution?

    I know about sleep apnea. But I'm talking about just snoring.

    I've gotten used to it. I don't like it, but I don't hate it. It used to wake me up, but after a few years I learned to ignore it

    I used to snore, and my partner would move to the other bedroom if it kept him up. Since I lost weight in the spring of 2007 my snoring has virtually disappeared, much to his relief.

    I am a very light sleeper
    and snoring would be a VERY big problem

    I have been lucky so far all my BF's (so Far)
    have been quiet sleepers

    My brother is a snorer and we used to share a room growing up
    I used to pummel him to make him stop icon_rolleyes.gif

    Neither I nor my partner do, but one of our dogs does.... it's awful! icon_exclaim.gif

    I saw a device on TV that looks like a night guard for people who grind their teeth at night, but it actually sets the lower jaw slightly ahead of the upper one, thus opening the airway. Anyone tried that? If so, and it works, let me know if they have one in a canine model! HURRY!!!! icon_lol.gif

    I know I snore loudly, everyone has told me that. My partner is tolerant, but if he ever tells me I'm interfering with his sleep, I'll try some of those remedies I see advertised.

    He also snores, but I only notice it if something else wakes me during the night, like my bad back. Then I'll have trouble getting back to sleep, but it's a minor & infrequent problem that doesn't require him to correct anything for me.

    Both my parents snored like locomotives, BTW. As a child they'd wake me up from all the way down the hallway. Gawd, they both win the prize for all-time honkers! LOL!

    I don't snore, and I am a light sleeper. Yet I have slept with guys who snore (not apnea). Earplugs are a better solution than moving to another bedroom.

    I should add that, yes, some men snore, but so do some women snore.

    I had the same experience. I used to be a buzz saw. When I visited family, I got put in the basement. But after dropping the weight, no problem at all. My BF had suggested that C PAP thingy, but I wanted to try losing the weight first. luckily that was the ticket.

    My partner snores. Wakes me up all the time. I turn him on his side and the snoring stops. Luckily it doesn't wake him up when I turn him. Now if I could just get him to stay in that position.

    HAHAHA My dog does the Same thing!! I can hear him even from his room next door! (Yes, my dog has his own room) icon_biggrin.gif
    Unfortunately he chooses to sleep with me most of the time. I'm mostly used to it now.

    I snore so badly that at the residential center where I did my training, I always had to share my room with a deaf guy.

    Our room was next to the room where video interviews were conducted with patients. Sometimes, I would grab a nap in the afternoon and you could hear me snoring in the background of the videos while clients poured out their tales of tribulation and abuse.

    Snoring really damaged a long term relationship of mine. My boyfriend would always want me to stay over and then proceed to pound my pillow..WTF?

    I used to have sleep apnea. I endured an excruciating painful surgery to correct a deviated septum. Furthermore had my uvula and soft palate lasered off.

    The sleep apnea is corrected but I still snoreicon_sad.gif

    I'm very sensitive about it and wish there was a way to correct it.

    "would you snore next to the guy above you"

    This snoring topic is hitting very close to home with me. I happen to snore a lot or so I've been told by my partner.

    The thing is that he doesn't sleep well anyway and would always complain to me about his inability to sleep even before we lived together. Now that he has moved in, on the nights that he can't sleep and I'm snoring he is constantly hitting my pillows, hitting me or throwing pillows over my head to wake me up.

    I happen to feel that this is very disrespectful towards me. He says, if he can't sleep, I'm not going to sleep. It seems to be right along the same lines as several of his other childish tantrums.

    I understand that I snore, but on the nights that he is able to sleep, my snoring doesn't bother him. But when he can't sleep and I am snoring, he treats me just awful.

    It's to the point where his reactions are getting close to me wanting to end the relationship all together.

    any thoughts?

    buy him some ear plugs... some are outright tight and uncomfortable but there are those moldable jelly types which you placed outside the ear canals. Those works....or ask him to turn you on your side gently when you snore and he is awake...--- sleeping on your side cuts out the snoring..... or Ditch him.

    He is being unfair and very disrespectful to you... my BF snores, but I would never do this to him ( pummel the pillow and wake him up). .. i resort to taking sleeping pills... ear plugs, ,, whenever we sleep over together. its a torture not being a ble to sleep,, and a bigger torture to be waken up prematurely before the alarm rings!

    My Bf snores all the time. Sometimes it keeps me up when I can't sleep, I hit him to roll over. It helps and he doesn't remember me pushing or poking him to roll over. you can get use to it.. When he is away it is way quiet that I can't sleep so go figure.
