Re: Living with boyfriend, but in separate rooms?
I dated my boyfriend for over 3 years and we seldom slept together because he snores and we both really prefer our own bed space when it comes to really sleeping. He just moved in a moth ago and he has his own bedroom and I have mine. We love this setup and are comfortable with it because we were use to it and we had a discussion before he moved in and were mutual in the agreement to have our own room and space. There are times when we need are own space and it's nice to have your own room to go to to watch TV or surf the web or whatever, just be alone. Hope this helps.

Re: Living with boyfriend, but in separate rooms?
My bf and I have been living together for almost 4 years. We only have a full size bed and it has grown increasingly smaller over the years. We are going to invest in a King as soon as possible. Until then there are nights he sleeps in the other room. This has NOTHING to do will loss of intimacy or wanting to be close. It has everything to do with getting a good nights sleep without having to be woken up by his thrashing and restless legs! I think wanting to sleep well because you are a troubled sleeper is not wrong at all! I think that maybe this is a mask to the real issue though. You are really young, are you ready for such a huge commitment? It seems the idea of him moving in with you came about due to convenience, not due to a desire from both parties. I think you and your bf should start out being together in the same town, but living separately. You said that you are long distance and unsure of how it will be to be with him 24/7. Start out enjoying your relationship with no pressure or stress of living together. It will make things a lot easier and if the living together thing sounds good later on, do it.

This post was originallly posted 5 years ago, why was it brought up again? I'm sure the OP has resolved her situation by now!
