    I just don't like them. I don't know why :dontknow: I don't feel comfy at all. And I feel really bad when I refuse, do you think my friends ***** about me not sleeping over?

    Are you offended if a friend refuses to sleep over?

    Does anyone else not a fan of sleepovers?

    Well it's hard to get comfy, what with all the pillows being used for fighting in your underwear.

    I don't like them that much either, it gets to a point where you think 'just bugger off and let me sleep in peace!'

    Nah I'm the same. I'd rather go over, have a good gossip, drink and whatever then wander home at like 4am :yep: I like my own bed and I'm really not a morning person.

    I'm not a fan. I liked them when I was younger but got to 14 and was like "yeahh, we did this last time..."

    If I have no other choice then I'll drive and not drink. I don't mind that, means I get to laugh at the drunkards

    Staying over friends houses doesnt tend to happen much anymore as all my friends work really, so the only houses ive really stayed at over the last couple of years are boyfriends. Friends tend to stay at mine after a night out or whatever as its much easier to get back to my house than alot of my friends.

    I dont mind staying at others so much if there arent any parents in, that can be awkward especially if their parents are awful. When parents arent in, its not an issue really.

    Ahh I hate them as well! I like my own space when I sleep. I really don't like it when I have to stay at a friend's house, or if they have to stay at mine. I'm fine with the socialising part, but it's just annoying when they live a 10-minute walk away and they expect you to stay over... WHY?! We'd both have much better quality sleep on our own in our own houses!

    I dont particularly like them anymore, I did when I was like 15-16. I hate the mornings. I cant get ready properly at someone elses house. Or sleep properly.

    I haven't liked sleepovers since I was about 16. I prefer my own bed, and I also feel a bit old now to be doing that, so it feels awkward for me :dontknow:

    edit: thinking about it, I've never been a fan of even having friends over. When I was 13/14/15 90% of the time if I was having a friend stop over I'd make sure we'd fall asleep downstairs so then I could get my quilt and go to bed .

    I hate sleepovers!
    I was 'camping' with my friends the other day and it was the worst experience ever. Mainly because of the rain and the intolerable parent who constantly told us to go to sleep. I did go to sleep. My hair is a mess in the morning and I'm really conscious about it, gahhr. Hoodie works.

    I like other people's houses (because they're usually nicer than mine) but it's odd to wake up somewhere us.

    Why does everyone here hate them so much? I love 'em, mainly because I'm always sick of my own house (and love other peoples) and love the spontaneuity/novelty of wandering round streets late or going to LIDL. Then watching 2 films and having a gossip, don't really care about comfort or waking up with greasy hair when you have a friend, fooood and a nice sofa

    i like them, though sleepovers these days tend to just be with a gf/one night stand. i prefer it when someone stays over at mine rather than me at theirs though

    I don't mind them too much; at home I have a major morning routine but breaking out of it now and again isn't too traumatic. If I know I'm going to be sleeping over I'll usually bring a sleeping bag and some deodorant (those new tiny Lynx ones are good for this), and possibly some chewing gum for the morning. The only awkward part is if you're awake before the host is, and you're not really sure what you should be doing.

    I wouldn't be offended if someone refused to sleep over, but I can see why people might be if you left fairly early and ended up missing most of the time. If you left really late the major concern would be you getting home alright; I've had friends who wanted to be called when I get home when I've left fairly late.

    I spent all of last year sleeping at my best friends place. It was fantastic, we would go to halls parties, then crash out drunk in her single bed, or on the floor or something stupid. Then wake up to a breakfast of **** and flat pepsi, and do it all again.

    That's all we did literally, they were great.

    I like them but I have a friend who doesn't seem to. She always makes excuses to not stay over. Me and another friend persuaded her to stay over once but she was very uncomfortable about it. When she can't come we might have a little moan about the fact that she never comes, but it's not being *****y, we just wish she was there. I don't really see what the big deal is. It's not like you go to sleepovers to actually sleep. You go to stay up most of the night.
