Sleep Texting: Apparently People Are Doing It

You know how many mornings I've woken up and had zero clue what I did the night before? Every single one. But now allegedly sober people are claiming to be sending text messages in their sleep. Wow, can't say I'm surprised. Or good looking. :/

Dr Cunnington described sleep texting as the result of people having too much to do during waking life.


"People are doing so much during a normal day that it can mean that they feel like they're 'on call' even at night," he said.

"Because it's so easy to receive emails constantly, and get notifications from smartphones, it becomes more difficult for us to separate our waking and sleeping lives."

You wanna know how to make sure you don't text in your sleep? Don't go to bed with your cell phone Never sleep. Back me up, Twilight vampire, Edward Cullen! "Holy shit, I'm gonna be a father." Haha -- you f***ed up, bro!

People are sending text messages while they are asleep, says specialist [news.au]

Thanks to bb, who allegedly sleep sexy-talks and is first on my list for a slumber party.

  • I've honestly had this happen on more than one occasion. Someone would ask me later, "What were you talking about?" I look at the texts I sent previously, and can't come up with a valid reason. I have no recollection of sending them or that I even texted that person.

    Yeah I do this ROFL.  But it has nothing to do with having too much to do during the day, that's crazy talk.  It has to do with a friend who keeps VERY strange hours (for no apparent reason) and will routinely text me at 3-4 am, asking me questions.

    I guess these people have yet to figure out their phones "send & receive" settings.

    Save $5 a month and use skype. This "texting" is a step backwards from writing and  two steps backward from typing. [AT-THE-LEAST-Bi╤CH]

    I've sleep texted before! Once, a friend texted me saying "What's Up?" and I replied "Not much, Just waiting for all of these people to leave so I can go to bed!" ....at 3AM....while I was sleeping. Alone, in my bedroom...

    It would indeed be amusing to see what folks can type up when their eyes are closed....oh and if they don't know how to type that just makes it funnier. hrmm...do I sound mean when I mention such a thing?

  • Tye

    Doesn't it take some form of coordination to press all those tiny buttons to form a sentence? Otherwise I'll be texting my sister "alsdjflsd aslks ccc,c,c,c,".

  • Isn't that how most people text anyway?
