Snoring Mates Roommates &
Don’t let snoring damage your
Is snoring causing a riff in
your relationship? No matter how much you
love each other, lack of sleep can strain a
relationship and put your health at risk.
Though some snoring is harmless, other times
it can indicate poor quality sleep as well
as critical health problems such as sleep
Sharing a bed is one of the
greatest pleasures of a romantic
relationship because it fosters intimacy and
closeness. Bedding down for the night should
be a pleasant part of the evening that you
and your partner look forward to. However,
snoring can create a huge relationship
roadblock because it prevents this joint
end-of-day ritual. When snoring is a
problem, relationship tension grows in the
- Sleeping alone. If
your partner snores, you might decide to
sleep alone. That only makes for a lack
of physical intimacy and a strained
relationship. And if you’re the one
snoring, you might feel lonely,
isolated, and frustrated about something
you feel you can’t control.
- Snoring spats. It’s
common to be irritable when lack of
sleep is an issue. But try reining in
your frustration. Remember, you want to
attack the snoring problem—not your
- Partner resentment.
Partner resentment can grow when a
non-snorer feels they do everything
possible to sleep through the night
(ear-plugs, noise-machines) but their
partner does nothing to combat their own
snoring. Working as a team to
self-remedy will prevent future fights.
If you value your
relationship, make it your priority to solve
snoring so you can sleep together. Think of
it like this: the way you and your bed buddy
handle a snoring problem is a sign of the
strength of your relationship. Working
together to stop snoring can be an
opportunity to improve the quality of your
bond and become more connected.
Communicating with a
partner, mate or roommate who snores
So you love everything
about your partner…except their snoring.
It’s normal. Even the most patient amongst
us will draw the line at sleep deprivation.
But no matter how much sleep is lost due to
secondhand snoring, it’s important to handle
the problem sensitively. Remember that your
partner likely feels vulnerable, isolated,
and even a little embarrassed. And although
it can be healthy for the relationship to
communicate those vulnerabilities, it can be
hurtful if done in an uncaring way. The
following tips can help you approach your
partner about his or her snoring.
- Time your talk
carefully. Avoid middle of the night or
early morning discussions when you’re
- Keep in mind it’s not
intentional. Although it’s easy to feel
like a victim when you lose sleep,
remember that your partner isn’t keeping
you awake on purpose.
- Avoid lashing out.
Sure sleep deprivation is aggravating
and can be damaging to your health, but
try your best to approach the problem in
a non-confrontational way.
- Beware of bitterness.
Make sure that latching onto snoring is
not an outlet for other hidden
resentments you’re harboring.
- Use humor and
playfulness to bring up the subject
without hurting your partner’s feelings.
Laughing about it can ease tension. Just
make sure it doesn’t turn into too much
Dealing with complaints
about your snoring
It’s common to be caught
off guard—not to mention a little hurt—about
your snoring. After all, you probably don’t
even realize it’s happening. And although it
might seem silly that snoring can cause such
relationship turmoil, it’s a common and a
very real problem. If you dismiss your
partner’s concerns and refuse to try to
solve the problem, you’re sending a clear
message to your partner that you don’t care
about their needs. This could mean your
relationship is in trouble, and that’s a
bigger problem than the snoring.
Keep the following in mind
as you and your partner work together to
- Snoring is a physical
issue. Typically, snorers feel a little
embarrassed about their problem. Try to
keep in mind that snoring is a physical
issue. Like a pulled muscle or a common
cold, improving the condition is in your
- Avoid taking it
personally. Try not to take your
partner’s frustration as a personal
critique or attack. Your partner loves
you, just not the snoring.
- Take your partner
seriously. Avoid minimizing complaints.
Lack of sleep is a health hazard and can
make you feel miserable all day.
- Make it clear that
you prioritize the relationship. If you
and your partner have this
understanding, you’ll both do what it
takes to make the snoring better.
- Address inappropriate
behavior. Although sleep deprivation can
lead to moodiness and irritability, let
your partner know that it’s not okay for
them to throw an elbow jab or snap at
you when you’re snoring.
