Does your partner/spouse fall asleep during movies?

My husband has just in the last six months started to doing this. I hardly ever fall asleep during movies unless I'm really tired. But my husband has started doing this even when it's a movie that he wants to see and when he has had a good night's sleep. I feel like we are getting older because I don't know too many young people that do this.

Oh. I think that is a sign of old age. But I think you don't really have to worry about that because my mom and my dad or even me really fell asleep during movies. And worst, I did that inside the movie theathre. I was so embarrassed with my boyfriend. Haha. He felt that I was so bored with him. haha. I thikn I was just so tired that time and I didn't expect that the movie will be that boring. BUt for my mother and father's case, yes, they often fell asleep during movies nowadays or just be watching tv news and sports.

Yeah falling asleep during a movie in theater is a big thing. That movie must have been very boring. Yeah there are a lot of individuals that fall asleep during movies. I'm hearing this more and more.

yeah that is funny. He wants you to leave the tv on and yet he is sleeping. I'm still getting use to my husband falling asleep during movies, but it will be funny if he starts saving things like that. Usually if I turn off the tv he just goes to sleep.

It could be a sign of sickness. My father was like that before and he went to the doctor for a check up. The doctor said it was because of his diabetes.

I never thought of that until you mentioned it. I wonder if my husband is having some type of problem like that. We will have to look it up and then see about him going to the doctor. It is very hard to get him to go to the doctors. But it is good to know these types of things.

Lol. Yeah it is funny. My husband has just started doing this within the last year.So I guess he will probably continue to do this for a time now.I wonder when I will start to fall asleep during a movie.I'm usually a night owl. I try and stay up late and get things done. So watching movies don't make me tired or sleepy.

I very rarely fall asleep whilst watching a movie even if im watching a movie very late at night or if i have only had very little sleep.The last time i fell asleep during a film was about a year ago and hadnt slept for two or three days.I dont even fall asleep if it is a film i dont want to see and i am finding really boring.I think your right falling asleep during a film tends to be something older people tend to do.A lot of my older relatives tend to fall asleep during films and in my family it tends to be the men who fall asleep during films my uncle falls asleep in front of the television most days, so i probably will start falling asleep during films if it is a family trait.Though i hope not as i really enjoy watching a good film.
