    Welcome to the forum.

    Are you sure you're in France? The forum requires members to put truthful information in their profiles. There's no personally-identifiable information in your profile; we just want to know where members are, what their native language is, and where they grew up. It helps us provide useful answers.

    It's new to me, too.

    Mine is my wife, and she's definitely a person.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    I've heard of swim buddies and play buddies, but never a snoring buddy. I mean, I guess we can deduce what it's supposed to mean.

    Do people really meet up to snore? Is it a euphemisim?

    How would you know? If you're both asleep, how do you know your snore buddy is actually snoring? Unless you alternately wake each other up with the snoring, which just sounds like a miserable night's sleep all around.


    Also Tdol's last comment reminded me of another buddy term I've heard: f*ck buddy. Maybe that's what a snore buddy is, but instead of carnal delights, it's auditory delights.

    I had a hug buddy once. (That term was, of course, meant affectionately.)
