    I have to go to sleep first or I have to be dead tired. If I'm not, I can't sleep. Not one bit. My ex used to snore something awful and was an a*s about it too. He knew as I explain this to him countless times that I couldn't handle him snoring. Oh, Houdini! It was horrid, and he...

    I Can'T Sleep With Any Loud Noises.

    One time I had to sleep in a cabin with someone who snored like a lawnmower and so loud, they could wake the dead. It was h*ll. Not even earplugs blocked out all the sound! I got no sleep that week.

    My Boyfriend Snores Like a Buzzsaw- Pretty much

    self-explanatory. He snores so loud I can't sleep. Its to the point where I have to wake him up several times to turn over or go sleep on the couch. I hate it, and there is absolutely nothing I can do. He is snoring as I type this, and I just want to shove a sock in his mouth...

    I makes me cry that my husband's snoring keeps

    me from sleeping with him. I miss his warm body next to mine. I miss the way he would hold me til we fell asleep. I worry about all the arguments and fighting this has caused.

    It's the same every night!

    His snoring wakes me up at least ten times a night, it's so loud! I tried turning on the TV to drown him out, but the volume wakes him up. (Never mind that his face is so loud it wakes me up dozens of times a night.) BE POLITE and let me sleep! I can't imagine him putting...

    If it is a light snore then I can deal with it.

    But if you sound like a Bear in hibernation and you shake the dang house! Prepare to get bombarded with pillows. Or I'll just leave the room. Same thing really :P I win both ways.

    When I was really little,

    This past week my husband has started something

    new... It used to be that he would snore, I'd mumble "you're snoring!," and he'd apologize and roll over before immediately resuming snoring. Now he snores, I mumble "you're snoring!," he apologizes, rolls over, farts on me, and THEN resumes snoring. Ah, the new addition of...

    Every night it's the same.

    Unless I fall asleep first I'm doomed to be awake because of my husband's snoring. Then I feel bad when I nudge him to make him quiet down a little because it gets so loud. idk what to do. :( I'm always so tired.

    It's so annoying- If I'm sleeping next to

    someone who is snoring, you best believe I will slap them or plug their nose and cover their mouth or yell if you snore in the same room as me! Or better yet I'll probably put a plastic bag over their face

    So i have recently just started going out with someone and staying over at there house. We have been together for about 2 months now, and his snoring hasn't bothered me until now. I don't know if it's because he's more comfortable with me, he can just dip into a really deep sleep...

    The other half snores for England! There's been nights when I've found myself sleeping on the sofa just for peace and quite. Things get to extremes when he's had one too many, then the whole street can hear him.

    My current girlfriend has one of the loudest snores I've ever heard. My mother is still the loudest I've ever heard. You could have a marching band going past my mothers bed and still be able to hear her snore over it. I found out about my girlfriends snore before we even met...

    I have a hard time falling asleep.

    I need utter silence unless I am exhausted. In which case I could fall asleep in train tracks and not awake.

    I am very difficult to live with.

    I am sensitive to noise and light and I love my sleep. I also insist on having my place laid out to suit my needs. If you snore or want the curtains open, you will have to live elsewhere. This doesn't mean I don't love you. I just hate not being able to get a decent sleep...

    My husband snores loud enough to wake the dead in the cemetery a few blocks away. I'm not exaggerating. Once, a neighbor actually called 911 because she was afraid that a saw was running in our garage. He's got a drawer full of mouthpieces. One was dentist...

    Honestly, my mon snores every night.

    It gets worse when she's tired. I know it's inappropriate to wake someone up because they're snoring, but I would do it to my mom. There are times she would wake up and I'd tell her that "she's too loud" and would end up slapping me but that's alright — at least I told you.

    The Loudest Woman I Ever Heard In My Entire Life!

    I slept with her from 1997 to 2002. She was a tad chubby, but not large, nor did she have sleep apnea--nothing that even hinted at snoring. I worked various early shifts, sometimes having to set my alarm to wake up as early as 2:30am--plus, my job usually involved all-day driving...
