If it's a legitimate reason it has to mean that he doesn't like to cuddle, so it's either both or the latter ;) On a side-note, I also hate rebreathing my own breath. What comes out shouldn't go back in! (it's a lot worse with others' breath, of course)

I think that it is partially a legitimate excuse. I have asthma and usually hate having my face covered by anything (even a sheet) if it makes me feel like I'm breathing in my own air/less air. However, there are plenty of other ways to cuddle someone. So maybe a certain position or two is off the table but there should still be plenty of options.

I agree with everyone else, it is a legitimate reason. I cant stand it most of the time. The only person I can not panic with is my son, for some reason his and my air is almost fine with me, it doesn't make me want to fling myself away and gasp for breath. However, he can always be the little spoon, no rebreath there.

That's just a little extreme. If the boyfriend is anything like me, rebreathing his own air might make him feel like he's suffocating. It's warm, stale air and my body goes into panic mode if I don't get "fresh" air. I realize it's all mental, but it doesn't make the feeling go away, and it's not a fun feeling.

Whenever I read these kind of couples FML, I can't help but feel we're missing context clues about the relationship ._. I guess aside from this huge and obvious flaw, he's a swell guy, right?

@4 How is this a huge and obvious flaw? As far as flaws go, I'd say this is small.

I love being the big spoon, plus I can roll out of it if I get uncomfortable. With being the little spoon, on most occasions, I have to contend with an arm and leg before rolling out of that one.

I don't like being the big spoon because I don't like the warm farts all night. But my husbands idea of cuddling is him putting his head on my stomach so I can tickle his back lol.

There are only so many ways your head can comfortably be positioned while cuddling from behind, and oft they leave you with female hair or body reflecting your own breath back in your direction.
