Im guilty..I snore when I sleep..i had friends tell me that i snore so loud and they wake up.but they said its only when im tired.(yeah,yeah,excuses,excuses)..BUt for you,if your bf/gf snores,would that be a turn off?or if you just started with the relationship and you found out your mate snores so loud,would it be a reason for you to think abt breaking up with them?im serious here ok?this is quite embarassing for me but I need your opinions on this topic.

I think it won't be a serious problem with me..well, I never had gf with such habit but when I'm sleeping I really do sleep so I don't listen to anything happen. Think that I have my own 'bad' habit =D. I'm gonna tell you a little story. Around 7 months ago, when my city got a 5,9 Richter Scale earthquake about 6 am I was sleeping while everyone in my boarding house ran out from the house but fortunately my best friend came into my room to wake me up and that time the earthquake was almost off after messing up the city for almost a minute. See, not even a 5,9 RS earthquake could wake me up, so will I have a problem with a snoring friend?? =)

Honestly, if i am sleeping with soem one in the same room who's snoring, i would really have a hard time going to sleep. But i wont take it personally against a person who snores especially if he is my boyfriend. I know that people who snore cant actually control or even not aware that they snore so there is no point to hold them liable for something that they themselves dont want. Also, to give you more information about snoring, i have read it somewhere before that snoring is actually a medical or health problem. Im not really sure with the details but maybe you can consult some physicians or read health magazines about it. Maybe there's also a cure or way to lessen one's snoring. All said, i think you shouldnt be embarrassed if you snore because it's notreally that big a deal. If your boyfriend leaves you just because of your snoring, thenn might as well send him to the door and slam it in his face.

at first, i said to myself that i would be turn off to a guy who will snore. but when i had my boyfriend, i realized i can accept everything about him even if he snores so loud. you shouldn't count the negative side of your partner if you do really love him. he really snores but only when he's really so tired from work. don't worry girl, it's not really bad to snore coz most of the people would really snore if they are really tired and so stress from work or something else.

how can someone like me do that?people who snore dont know they snore when their sleeping..i just found out when i was abroad and i had two friends stay with me in one room..i think people who snore have breathing prblems too..so i dont think people should blame us(the ones who snores)when we make u feel uncomfortable when you are sleeping..

It's annoying for my part, as I don't really snore. I guess snoring wouldn't be a major reason for me to break up with my partner, I'm not that narrow-minded and inconsiderate to end things like that. and if my g/f would snore, I would first find a way to help her with her sleeping disorder, then tell her some ways to help her prevent from snoring. In this way, I would make her know how much I care for her and how much she means to me.

No, I don't mind if I truly love the person. Maybe I'll just sleep in another bed. Don't worry if the guy/girl truly loves you, he will still accepts you. I don't think it's a major problem 'causing break up. If your gf/bf break you up then he doesn't really love you at all. My answer will always be NO. It's OK as long as I love the person.

Snoring is bothersome, but I would not break up with someone over it. we all probably snore if we ever get relaxed enough. There are things you can do to stop the snoring, they have strips you can put over your nose, they have pills you can take. It is not a total turn off, it is just a human nature thing for many who sleep deep.
