Is your partner selfish in bed? Take this simple test

Going to bed with your partner can be wonderful, but it can also be really annoying. Sometimes this could be because they snore, but it could also be for several other reasons, any one of which can drive the other partner nuts.

Before you get too excited here, we’re not talking about sex, just sleeping together. Yes, sharing a bed with your lover and life partner. It’s one of the joys of having a partner, but– like anything – things can go wrong. They are all little things, but if combined en masse can turn the bed into a boxing ring.

Here are just a few common issues:

  1. Your partner steals the blanket when he/she turns over
  2. When your partner is too hot, he/she dumps all the bedding on your side so you wake up broiling
  3. Your partner knows they snore in a certain position but insists on going to sleep in that position
  4. Your partner insists on watching television in bed even though they know you are tired and want to go to sleep
  5. They make so much noise when they get up and go to pee that is sounds like an elephant is on the rampage
  6. They insist on wearing a smelly and grubby t-shirt and undies to bed
  7. They make advances when they know you are really tired and just want to sleep
  8. They suddenly decide getting up at 6am is a good idea when it’s the first day in ages you’ve had a chance to sleep in

Okay, if your partner scored more than four out of eight, you can tell them they they are officially “selfish in bed”. Sadly, there is no guaranteed solution for a selfish partner. You can try talking to them, but it can be very hard to make them change their ways, particularly when they do some things in their sleep and are not even aware of them.
