Do you find yourself waiting half a day for your partner to wake up? By the time he gets up, are you ready for your first nap? Have you already had two meals? Have you contemplated “accidentally” turning on loud music to wake him up? Being in a relationship with someone who is not a morning person when you are a morning person can be a real hindrance to the relationship. It’s almost as if you work totally opposite shifts at your jobs, but no real obligation is standing in your way of hanging out: it’s just your partner’s circadian rhythms! (Of course, he probably thinks your rhythms are the problem). But, you love everything about your partner other than his sleep schedule, so you need to find a way to make it work. Here are funny struggles of being with someone who isn’t a morning person, when you are one.
Pacing out snacks before lunch
Your partner says he wants to have brunch. But you’re up at 7am and you know he may not be up until 11, 12….So you have a little snack to hold you over. Then another little one. Then another one is he up yet you’re getting too full for brunch! By the time he gets up for brunch, you’re not hungry anymore.
