Would you date someone who snores as loud as lions?

Asked by dopeguru (1388points) January 20th, 2018

You like someone, but you find out they snore, like, A LOT, and you can’t get any sleep when with them. Would you still go for it?

Personally I would not, I’m a light sleeper and lack of sleep would make life intolerable, or at least make me intolerable.

How do you know how loud a lion snores? Have you ever slept with a lion?

I personally can’t stand loud snorer, the only time that doesn’t bother me when I went to bed extremely tired that I become completely oblivious to my surroundings.

How about making a sleeping arrangement with him. Each of you have your own bedroom and can visit each others anytime you want except when it comes to sleeping. I have tried earplugs before and they’re not the most comfortable item to use, earmuff make you uncomfortable to tilt your head to the other side. A good man will be understanding and a defensive man will say “It’s not my fault, it happens naturally, I can’t control it” and act like you’ve been a selfish partner to complain about it.

My wife snores like a lion. It’s okay though…she’s an animal in bed.

I married that ragin’ lion. We’re quickly approaching our 27th anniversary. The snoring has caused many problems over the years, but it’s never been a deal-breaker for me. His many good traits far outweigh this unfortunate one.

Only if he has barbs.

My brother and his wife slept in separate rooms after “cuddle time.”
But seriously, it is a sign of serious issues. Sleep apnea, heart issues, etc. The lion needs a sleep study.

it depends how far into the relationship you are. If not that committed, i might bail.

I’d have no problem with it. I can sleep through anything.

My wife snores, and the house is full of striking clocks. I snooze happily through it all. I’ve been accused of conditioning the wife and planting the clocks to discourage the parade of would be “guests” that descen upon us.

Like mentioned snoring must be addressed for health reasons and more.

Rick snores REALLY loud. Like a herd of lions. Usually I’m asleep before him, and, like @stanleybmanly I can sleep through a train wreck. But, if for some reason I am awake and he’s snoring so loud I just move to the couch.
