Now that picture was worth visiting this thread!


Other than that... I can't believe anyone would be serious about the subject of this thread.
(Is there an American April Fool's equivalent I am not aware of ?)

Yes, men go to bed later than women - with the exception of all those who don't.
And yes, women can't wait to wrap themselves around a man in bed - with the exception of all those who hate the mere thought of it...

Have you been spying on me?
Wife and three female cats all taking turns sleeping on top of and kneading some body part, cutting off the circulation.
The male cat likes to sleep in between us or on the top of my head.
I am thoroughly pinned down at night.
Until I flip over scattering kitties like so many hand grenades.
Afterward, at some time during the night, or early morning should I say, the wife like to roll over on top of me, or give me a hug.
Lets not even talk about the knots she makes of the blankets.

On that note.

I go to sleep when I can't stay awake any longer.
Not too late, 12 or 1 am usually.
Then again, I'm up at 5:30

She goes to bed @ 8-9 and gets up @ 4:40

Make that: in their bedroom - and I'll sign!

I can't believe nobody has protested yet against the obvious sexual harrassment of the cat by the chick.... Or *something* anyway.

well, ya see, I get up early five days every week, and go to work...
hubby's laid off, most mornings he can sleep in till whenever. but even those mornings that he can't, I still have to get up before him, so he can have his coffee delivered in bed. so, I am always up before him, or almost always.

and then, there's the after work dishes, cooking and general housekeeping duties that I have to do, while he sits and plays video games or watches tv...

in plain simple words....I'm a grown up, have much to do, and go to bed dead tired early....
and well, he hasn't grown up, or maybe he's reverted back to his second child hood....but he's just not as tired as I am....

I think it is fairly obvious why men go to bed later,it is the only time when we can get peace and relax!

Don't you just love it when everyone is tucked up in bed,and the house has finally fallen silent,and you can have sometime to yourself,just to reflect on the days events?
Heaven!

That might have something to do with it...
Good point.

If you ask me... just having another person in the bedroom, never mind the bed, is too much.

I never could understand the supposed attraction of having to share a bed during sleeping.

(And for what it's worth: an aunt of mine and her second husband had the most successful marriage I've ever seen.
They never slept in the same bedroom.)

That is exactly why I go to bed at around 0200-0300 when my missus goes to bed at around 2300. I have to spend all day (when not working) doing things round the house, dealing with the kids, taking care of her "needs" whatever they may be. Only when everyone has finally buggered off to bed can I get some piece and quiet to watch South Park and play on my PC.

I also work shifts, 2 days (0700-1900) and 2 nights (1900-0700) followed by 4 days off, so my body clock is out of whack most of the time anyway.

Actually, at least for me, there's some truth in this statement. After everyone has gone to bed, I usually find this to be the one time in a given day that I can have some time to myself and relax. A wife and three kids is alot of people in a house, I love my family but there's something really nice about having those few late hours to myself when they are all asleep.
I also can see the OP's point, I always do a walkthrough before I got to bed to make sure all the doors are locked and the animals are secure, during the winter I'm usually up every couple hours to check the fire place as well.

I can't speak for every guy, but I'm sure most were like me when I was younger. I went to bed later so I could drink some beer, break out the porn, and... well, let's just say I didn't like going to be with a loaded gun.

Maybe it is just a survival thing and then the longer I was married and as I got older, maybe I had the subliminal thought that if I started going to bed before her, just maybe I would wake up dead.

These days, being 52, seperated (soon to be divorced) and getting lonelier every day, I'd been willing to take my chances again.

Just where does one go to meet women face to face who have interest in conspiracys, aliens, and the paranormal?

I can't go to sleep until I know my wife is tucked up in bed and snoozing.

Then I get my few hours peace, surfing ATS etc. before I drop off, usually about 2am.

My snoring wakes her about 5am after she's had about 6 hours kip and she goes downstairs until she leaves for work.

She wakes my up as she leaves about 8am with a kiss and then I get up.

Same thing most nights and we have a wonderful marriage!

But I need to know she's OK and house secure before I can sleep, must be the caveman DNA!!

If my wife was awake, I'm sure she would be in total agreement with this statement.


Translation for men "You will do the dishes, cooking, and general housekeeping, and btw your grounded."


Of course, my wife ignores all the fixing, cooking, and other things I do around the house. She also ignores that I work a lot of hours and give her my whole pay check. (ie "secret of staying married") As well as many other things that she would state "That doesn't count". But then again, she makes the rules as we go, and I'm in a state of constant confusion.

And this is why we men, stay up at night. Its the only time we men, get to have to ourselves. Minus the constant 2nd mom telling us what to do, and taking away our play time.

I sleep about 3 hours a night. The only reason my wife doesn't go to sleep after me is because she cant survive on 2 hours a night.

I don't worry about security. I have a dog, two loaded handguns in the bedroom(one on her side and one on mine) and a loaded pump action shotgun sitting in a gunrack about three feet from my head as I type this.

Every year I go to bike week at myrtle beach and sturgis by myself and her safety in our home is not even an issue.

I'm extremely amused at you calling all girls "chicks". I've noticed this with myself but don't attribute it to being safe. If someone breaks into your house, unless you sleep with a gun within reaching distance, your never going to "feel safe" if your worried about things like this. You might imagine yourself to be a hero, but if the "guy" your worried about actually enters your house the chances that he comes unarmed are slim to none in this world. Thus your either at his beck and call or dead, neither of which is "safe".

I find it has more to do with my energy levels being higher than pretty much everyone around me. When I come home from work I like to unwind, so if your my girlfriend and you want to talk to me about your stressful day for an hour before sleep, that's not "unwinding" to me. Unwinding to me is checking my email, checking some forums, reading a bit, maybe playing a game, then going to sleep. So in my experience the "chick... hehe" unwinds to me then wants to sleep but I'm not ready yet, I need my alone time, and its definitely not for porn since I don't get that serious with girls I am not crazy attracted to. But that might be TMI...
