It’s certainly a great feeling when you find that person you want to spend the rest of your life with but living, and sleeping in the same bed with them, is a whole other story, especially if they are a snorer.
A new British survey, which could easily translate here, finds:
- 83% of people either snore or live with someone who does.
- Men are more likely to be the snorers in a relationship than women (52% vs. 30%).
- And all that snoring is causing some major relationship problems.
- 10% of people say they’ve either delayed moving in with someone, or have been dumped over snoring issues.
- And when they do move in together…
- Over 25% of people say their partner will kick them under the covers to try and quiet them down.
- 13% say that leads to arguments with their S.O.
But it’s not like folks are proud of their snoring.
- In fact, 46% of people say they are “embarrassed” they snore.
- It’s caused 10% to dread spending the night with a new partner.
- 19% have even avoided sharing a room with a friend on vacation because of it.
- 12% have even skipped going on public transportation out of fear they’d fall asleep and snore.
As for how people discovered they were a snorer:
- 75% found out when they were told by another person.
- 17% realized when they woke themselves up.
- 30% had someone complain about hearing it through the walls.
- 22% have had their snoring recorded by a friend or partner.
