The best (and worst) way to wake a guy up.

    Have you ever had to give someone else directions for waking you up since they were so bad at it?

    I used to have a roommate who would open my door and then do two harsh knocks on the door. Nothing subtle or gentle about it. I've also had a friend that would stand real close and then just yell my name loud and swift (kinda like the other roommates knocking). Both were alarming, unpleasant and had me ready for blood. I take my sleeping way seriously and a sharp break in it may be the easiest way to piss me off. It's the same feeling I get when someone accidentally hits you in the face. You're just mad anyway.

    Now, the ideal wakeup (from a non-significant other) is a gentle hand on the shoulder and saying my name in a low voice if needed. I think my bad wakeup friends found this too matronly, but there's a masculine way to pull this off.

    Thoughts?

    For a nonsignificant other (like a roomate or friend), I guess the thing to do is to be as abrupt and loud as possible. That's the way it is with guys...LOL. You yell, he gets startled and pissed and throws something at you, and then everything works itself out.

    With a significant other, or a romantic sleep over guy, you gotta be more tactful. Bonus ponts for gentle shakes and kisses on the cheek (or somewhere else).

    I think the worst way is to abruptly pull back the blinds so that your guest is temporarily blinded by the searing mid morning sunlight.

    The best way is to let the aroma of a freshly cooked breakfast wake me...I mean, him. icon_redface.gif

    The best way when I lived in US Army enlisted barracks was for Sergeants to run around screaming to get out of bed RIGHT NOW, and hit the latrine NOW! That way lots of guys had no time to lose their morning wood first, before heading to the showers. icon_wink.gif

    That really used to happen, but more seriously to this question, when I was still bringing guys home to sleep with me, I'd often wake them up with a cup of coffee and a very soft "Good morning." I'd have slipped out of bed first, and would have breakfast standing by, too, though usually I preferred at a table and not in bed.

    With my partner it's a simple light touch on his arm or shoulder, usually without words, since he wakes fairly easily. I would never shock anyone awake, my former Army experiences notwithstanding. I did have one BF who always would loudly say "Get up!" or "Wake up!" to me, which I hated. I complained, but it did no good. Some guys...

    Maybe he can give your morning wood a couple yanks, that seems like a nice friendly way to be woken up.

    Best: gently touch the shoulder area and lightly shake.



    Worst: pull the lanyard on a 12lb bronze napoleon.

    I prefer being woken gently, cuddle will usually do it icon_smile.gif

    But I've been woken up by my brother screaming fire fire, had mates jump on me, that was fun actually I got ma revenge, had people cook me breakfast or at least try, I'm a deep sleeper and when I don't want to wake up, food wont do it haha

    Yeah cuddles are still best icon_smile.gif especially sleepy cuddles where I get more sleep while cuddling is even better icon_smile.gif

    Just a somewhat soft "Time to wake up" usually works for me.

    My favorite way is a blow job, of course.

    HA! Now that you mention it, I had blocked him too, too negative for my tastes. Looks like he set up a new profile. "hits block button"

    My roommate has to ring the handle bell not once, not twice, but thrice and whisper "Charlotte, Charlotte, you will be late for your own cotillion dear if you do not wake from your slumber". Either that or I set the alarm clock.

    That's why, as I wrote above, I only had all the fixings standing by, but nothing cooked except the coffee made. You never know what a guy might want. When I made his eggs to order they were just that.

    But the breakfast table had been elaborately set before he even sat down, always to a theme and often the day before, and all the cookware I might use placed right on the counter, so once he made a choice his breakfast was only a few minutes away. My military training was so useful.

    I would have inventoried what I had the day before, for most breakfast possibilities, and bought what I needed before I headed for the club that night. Nothing more awkward than getting a guy to come home with you, and the next morning you're out of eggs or milk or orange juice or something he'd like.

    But I was also flexible, and if he expressed a desire for breakfast or brunch somewhere out, then that's what we would do without complaint from me. The idea was to pamper the guy, and however he wanted that done was how I made it happen. He was, after all, my very special guest, for hopefully more than once.

    Actually, the best wake up I've gotten recently is not from a bf, or an ex....

    It is from my tennis partner.

    When we are playing in tournaments out of town and we share a room, he usually gets up first, finds a way to put my racquet in my hand....and then says quietly
    "Michael, it's time to get up and win".


    The worst was my Mom who would walk into my room when I was much younger telling me how beautiful it was outside and raising those blinds in one quick movement.
    "BLEECH GET OUT OF MY ROOM MOM!"

    Now that's a class act. May I ask, is your tennis partner gay? I can hardly believe a straight guy would be capable of such a gesture, but whether he is gay or not, my compliments to him.

    Ah... why am I not surprised? Lucky you. Sometimes I do think gay men should offer lessons on how all men can behave like gentlemen. Contrary to the straight myth, most of us are tougher than they are, and yet at the same time more refined. They mistake coarseness for manliness. I really think we need to start classes... LOL!
