For English speakers the expression sleeping with usually means two people are having sex together. Using this expression incorrectly could give the listener the wrong impression and embarrass the speaker.

  • Don’t say: I stopped sleeping with my male room mate because he snores too loudly. This sentence implies that the two people were in a sexual relationship, which may not be the intent of the speaker.
  • Do say: I no longer sleep in the same room as my male room mate because he snores too loudly
