Partners Of Sleeptalkers Reveal The Darkest Thing They’ve Ever Said While Sleeping
An unconscious mind is interesting and complex. No one knows this better than the partners of sleeptalkers, who witness them first-hand as they ramble away in the night. In truth, hearing your partner speak while they’re out cold is not always a funny experience. Sometimes, it’s creepy, or even downright scary.
People who talk in their sleep have a tendency to seem like they are not sleeping. Some even carry on a full conversation. This can make it a difficult task to identify their statements as genuine or just nonsense. In addition, when the lights are out, it’s extremely easy to get freaked out. It’s all fun and games until it happens to you.

#3 It Turns Out Feelings Are Easy To Control
The best one has to be when she was pregnant. She woke up with really bad heartburn and nausea. She tried to wake me up to tell me she wasn’t feeling well. While deep asleep, I said to her: “You know those feelings you are feeling? Just turn them off.”
I’m really lucky my wife knows I sleep talk. She doesn’t hold anything I say in my sleep against me, she just teases me a lot.

#5 Subconscious Horror Stories
I woke up to go to the bathroom one night. As I moved to get up, my boyfriend goes, “Don’t go out there…”
Thinking he was awake and just playing a joke, I ask him, “Oh yeah, why?” He sits upright, eyes wide open, and says: “SHE’S out there.”
I held it for the rest of the night.

#8 Unnecessary Violence
My fiancee is super active while sleeping. It used to bother me, but now I’m used to it. One time, I asked her to give me her pillow while she was sleeping and she said, “Okay.” She pulled it out from under her head and threw it at me. She slept the rest of the night without a pillow. She was quite angry when she woke up without a pillow, even after I told her what she did.

#11 Facts About Dorm Rooms
My roommate leaned up while he asleep, got about two inches from my face and said: “Two people sleep in a dorm room!” Then burst into hysterical laughter. It was our first night together.
#12 Screams In The Night
I woke her up by stroking her hair and whispering to her that it would be okay, and she thanked me in the morning.
#13 Even Asleep She Thought It Was Funny
GF: “BABE, BABE!”
I wake up, startled. “What?”
GF: “There’s someone standing in the doorway.”
Adrenaline starts pumping, I prepare myself to fight the intruder. I quickly scan the room for something to make an impromptu weapon out of. Finally, my eyes adjust to the dark, I’m fully awake and I see that no one is actually there.
Me: “No there isn’t, you’re sleeping!”
GF : *muffled laughing*
She had zero recollection of the entire incident the next morning.

#17 Don’t Expect Logic In Sleeptalking
Me: “We don’t have a dog.”
Wife: “Yes we do, and he’s in the kitchen, barking.”
Wife: “Go see why he’s barking.”
Me: *I reluctantly walked to the kitchen and back to the bedroom.*
Wife (now awake): “Where did you go?”
Me: “I went to the kitchen to check on the dog.”
Wife: “But we don’t have a dog…”
#18 A Better Place Would Be On The Toilet
I thought she was awake but we were laying in bed last week and this is how it went:
GF: I’m gonna poop myself
Me: What? No, go to the bathroom.
GF: Ugh! I’m gonna poop the bed!
Me: Why don’t you go to the bathroom if you’ve got to poop?
GF: What? That doesn’t make any sense at all, I’m trying to make these trees grow, just shut up!
This is when I realized she was sleeping and started laughing hysterically, which made her angry.
She didn’t remember any of it the next morning

#36 He’s Her Favorite Snack
My significant other once had a dream about eating a cheeseburger. She went to take a big old bite of that juicy, meaty delicacy and sunk her teeth right into my shoulder. It’s good to know she thinks I’m a snack, but that is not a pleasant way to be woken up.

#40 Never Take A Sleeptalker Seriously
She neglected to tell me she had night terrors.
In the middle of the night, in the pitch black, I wake up to screaming. My roommate, while asleep, kept saying that there was somebody in our room trying to get her. I have no idea where the light switch was, or the door, or anything.
I had never been so scared in my life.
#41 The Truth Finally Comes Out
“I love Nickelback,” my boyfriend whispered in his sleep. It could be part of the reason why we broke up a few days later.

#44 Ghosts With Unfinished Speeches
Often times, I would be awake enough to catch her sleep conversations. They were usually nonsense, but she would talk with me and I’d keep the conversation going just to see what she would say.
We moved into this new apartment and one night the sleep talk took a weird turn. I’ve always had a habit of doing voices or accents to mimic things from TV or other people, but my wife never does— she won’t even try it as it’s just not her thing.
One of the first couple nights in the new apartment, my wife was sleeping and she started talking in a deep voice. She spoke about “the war” and how “he” was happy to be home. I thought it was just another silly dream, but the change in her voice made me pay more attention. I asked her questions but she didn’t respond much to them; she just continued on with her “speech”. She said her name was “Cole Brown” and then mentioned something about being “back in 1950 something.”
She eventually went back to sleep, but then started up again in a female voice that wasn’t her own.
The apartment we lived in was an old house converted to an upper and lower duplex. We lived in the upper while the lower was still being remodeled. While speaking with the contractors, they explained that the house had been condemned and sat vacant for a number of years. They did a great job restoring and updating the 100-year-old home.
Fast-forward about a month, I’m getting the mail from our mailbox. We would occasionally get junk mail, you know the type.
We received multiple pieces of junk mail for Cole Brown.
#1 There’s Only One Way Out
The next morning, she told me about a dream she had, where she was trapped in a prison cell, screaming for someone to hear her and let her free. So I guess it makes sense now.
