Night Owl vs Early Bird: The Struggle

I'm a morning person.

I'm up by 7:30 and ready to go before 8. I love getting to places before they're crowded or before it gets too hot.

I feel like I get so much more out of my day this way and tend to go to sleep around 11.

My boyfriend is a night owl.

His "early" is 11 and he gets out of bed closer to 2. He loves 24 hours cafes and has no problem coming home at 3am when he got lost in his work on the computer.

If he wakes up too early he says his stomach hurts and he's groggy. It's not that he doesn't want to, he physically can't (which makes it hard for me to be annoyed with him)

I used to get a little annoyed when I'd still be sitting around my house waiting for him to roll out of bed at 2pm on a Saturday. I felt like my day was wasted or that I could have gone and run errands or something had I known he was going to just sleep all day.

But, we're getting better.

I know he doesn't mind if I get out of bed to do yoga or work on my computer until he wakes up. I've been working on staying up later with him, even to just watch a movie.

Have you ever had a night owl/early bird problem with any of your relationships before?
