Romance...And The No Cuddling Policy

December 5, 2011

I learned the other day at school that Nate and I aren't very romantic. Apparently not cuddling with each other before bed, and having separate blankets doesn't scream romance...Who knew? When it comes to sharing a bed, I don't want to be touched, I want my own blanket to curl up in, and all heck will break loose if you cross my imaginary dividing line...Ok that's a slight exaggeration...Slight. The nice thing is, is that Nate feels the same way. Sleeping time is for sleeping...Or maybe deep down I would love some cuddle time? Prob not ;). What do you guys think, do you cuddle before bed? Is our marriage doomed because of the no cuddle policy?

  1. We cuddle right before we fall asleep, and right when we wake up. I do not want to be bothered when I am sleeping.

  2. I like to snuggle before sleep time. Like watching t.v. or reading or something. Then I want to be at the opposite sides of the bed. i TOTALLY understand where you're coming from.

  3. We do the cuddle and break. Cuddle for 5 minutes, and go to our separate sides of the bed to sleep... If my hubby can't fall asleep, sometimes he will come back for a part 2 cuddle for another 5. And the break.

  4. We do the cuddle until we're sleepy then head to our sides to actually sleep. But, my hub would cuddle all night long if I let him. When I was pregnant, I REALLY hated being touched. Poor hubby was cuddle deprived for almost a whole year.

  5. First these photos are gorgeous, I love this dress on you.
    BF & I are big cuddlers on the couch.
    But once we are in the bedroom I am just like 'Go away I am sleeping.' Separate blankets would probably solve the 'Why do you always steal all the covers?' 'Me? Why do YOU always steal all the covers?' arguments we have. So I say you are spot on sister, no worries, you'll be fine.

  6. 1. I love your dress and your earrings. Gorgeous. 2. My boyfriend and I cuddle maybe 5 minutes in bed (assuming we go to bed at the same time, which is a rare occurrence)and then we both just want to be left alone so we can sleep. LOL. Whatever works for the couple. 3. I just added the "I'm a Thriftaholic" badge to my page. Such a fun way to link up to other thrifters! - Dreama

  7. I love your outfits! Love the tunic especialy!
    On the no cuddle policy...
    hmmmm...I think it depends on the couple...finding other ways to stay intimate and romantic might be key to keeping a couple close. But speaking from experience..my husband and I were the same way about the bedroom, my own pillow, stay on your side and I have my own blanket. Eventually we started sleeping in different bedrooms. We've been divorced 6 months now...

  8. I have that jacket and I am wearing it right now! My husband bought it for me on black friday. :)

    Sometimes we cuddle and sometimes I can't stand being touched. Sometimes we each use our own blanket. It is a lot easier to have my own! Otherwise I end up without a blanket in the middle of the night.

    And things that make a marriage easier and more conflict free are good. ;-)

  9. I do like to cuddle a little, but once the cuddles are out of the way we recede to our sides of the bed and there is no crossing again until the alarm goes off! It's very important to me to have my space while sleeping! I sometimes wish we were like couples in movies who wake up in each others arms... but that's ok. ;)

  10. I am lucky if he remembers to kiss me before my eyes shut. I totally agree with you, I wish I had a Cal King so my imaginary border line would stretch farther. We also use separate blakets too.

    ps. I love the outfit!!!

  11. That's so funny, I'm glad my husband and I aren't the only ones who don't even share the same blanket! But we realize we both love our sleep!!

  12. I'm actually very proud of the fact that my honey and I "get things done" then go off to our separate rooms. yes, lot's of cuddling happens at the appropriate time, but I think the fact that we both value our "me time" (sleeping) really helps us enjoy "time on" and "time off"

  13. Hey there! I just discovered your blog and hope to become a "regular." I'm digging all your thrifty posts.

    As for me and mine, we cuddle for a few minutes and then part ways. I'm talking separate bedrooms...which also happen to be on different floors of the house. He snores and I'm a light sleeper so it's a perfect setup for us. We also have two cats so each of us gets one cat companion to snuggle with at night ;)

  14. my hubs and i don't usually cuddle before bed time either. no way is your marriage doomed... as long as you both agree and just make sure you are lovey and cuddly at other times, you're good :)

  17. NO cuddling at bedtime. I am only chiming in because I saw that the first few commenters where cuddlers. I want you to know that your marriage does not appear doomed....by my standards anyway. We've been happily married for 9 years of no cuddling. You are ok.

  18. That dress is beautiful! Love the colors. And I think every couple has to figure out what works for them. If you're both happy that's all that matters!

  20. This makes me smile...glad I'm not the only one who doesn't like to be touched. We cuddle for a bit, but then turn our separate ways. I just can't sleep any other way!

  21. Gasp! The Missoni for Target dress is to die for. Covet.

  22. My husband and I are the exact same...there is a quick kiss, an I love you and a goodnight. He's like a furry man-shaped heater when he sleeps. Sleeping time IS for sleeping.
