What does sleep have to do with relationships? When we refer to compatibility, we must also take into account sleeping habits.
Well, sleep is very important! Let’s think together about the following situation:
He needs at least 8-9 hours of sleep on a regular basis. His body simply requires at least 8 hours of sleep a day. There is nothing to do. Biology.
She, on the other hand, is standing after 5-6 hours. It is “fresh” and going for great deeds (sex, for example). She doesn’t really need more. If she goes to bed at 2 at night, she has no problem waking up at 7 in the morning.
Will the fact that they love each other a lot make them change their sleep needs? Maybe in the first months of sublime love, but after a while they will return to their essential patterns.
Bodies do not take into account what they have decided, following a rational discussion. Sleep needs are largely genetically configured. What do realistic people do? Take it into account! In vain do you try to sleep less if you need more. And in vain do you intend to sleep more, because you will not succeed, you will just wriggle in bed, possibly annoying him, or waking him up.
Do you think that the similarity in terms of sleep needs does not matter too much?
Be aware of the sleep patterns of your girlfriend or boyfriend from the beginning of the relationship. And before saying “yes” take into account this compatibility.
