    19 Things You'll Only Understand If You're Dating A Morning Person

    I just want to sleep in.

    1. Usually they’ll be up and dressed before you’ve even contemplated opening your eyes.

    2. Which can sometimes be good, because they'll have done loads of chores before you're even awake.


    They're pretty much always the person on unloading-the-dishwasher duty.

    3. And they're always pestering you to get out of bed.

    Nooo, let me sleep.

    4. Sometimes they'll be coming home FROM THE GYM while you're still sleeping.

    5. They see no problem in starting a full conversation at 7am.

    6. And ask you difficult questions first thing in the morning.

    "Hey so what shall we cook for dinner this weekend? Have you decided what time you'll be home tonight, and also what are we doing for Christmas?" – them

    "Urghhnnn." – you

    7. They even see no problem with calling you at 8am.

    You're barely able to speak at that time of day.

    8. They only have to set one alarm in the morning.

    And they never even snooze.

    9. Where as you probably set loads and snooze constantly.

    10. Their idea of sleeping in on the weekends is very different to yours.

    "Well, we can sleep in till 7.30am as it's the weekend." – them

    "No." – you

    11. Because they feel like you're wasting time when you're sleeping in on the weekends.

    12. Your idea of morning sex and their idea of morning sex take place at verrrrrrrrrryy different times of the day.

    "Morning, beautiful!" – them

    "Urghhhh." – you

    13. And they're always wanting to go out for really early breakfast on weekends.

    Only brunch is acceptable.

    14. Because honestly, sometimes it's like living in another time zone.

    15. You can't understand how they leave the house looking so put-together every day.

    16. Whereas you randomly pick your clothes up from the floordrobe in a panicked rush every morning.


    Or, if you're feeling really organised, you lay your clothes out the night before.

    17. Every morning they actually make breakfast, while you're just about able to drink a cup of coffee.

    18. And sometimes you can barely cope with their perkiness.

    Shhhh, sleep time.

    19. But while they may wake you up at an ungodly hour occasionally, at least they make you breakfast sometimes.

    Because it would be MUCH worse if neither of you were morning people.
