    Not Totally Alone... But....

    When I wake up, technically, I am alone. No mate next to me. I have never experienced that ever in my life, yet. The last time I had shared a bed with someone, was my sister, when we were little. =p But, I'm not totally alone... I do have my stuffed animal. Or sometimes my cat...

    It's Just Horrible

    we've been together 5 months...and spent 98% of that time together. i expect him to be there when i wake, now. and it's just awful when he's not there and is replaced by a cold space in my bed.

    :-(

    One in the bed sucks but two in the bed is just ducky.  If I have to wake up alone please let me snooze a little longer so that I can enjoy us walking hand in hand through my dreams.

    It Was Nice to Have a Lover to See Smile As I Awake.

    A core image that will always be there.  I know it may become a reality again - I have confidence in myself and my fellow humans that it will.

    When my wife left me I still left her side of the bed open. I didn't want to be divorced. I was so lonely.

    It Suxx!

    I don't like waking up alone one bit. It Suxx, but I've done it a lot lately rather than waking up with someone I don't really have feelings for. Ah, but this is only temporary and that empty place in my bed will be no longer.

    Adjustments

    I hate my new job the hours are horrible, and my hubby works midnights so I go all week without waking up to him, and never see him! Is there a quick fix to getting over this situation, so I can adjust?

    Actually I Do This Every Morning...

    I've never had a significant other so I guess I don't hold any melancholy...I don't really know what it's like to cuddle up to someone lol.. But I do hate sleeping alone because I'm afraid of the dark. Stupid post, I know.

    I Miss Someone

    Being in a long distance relationship with someone is hard. I miss that person most when it's night time, and I could be there, hugging her and falling asleep in each other's arms. Instead I sleep alone, and wake up a long. Hope it won't be too late before I make...

    To Really Feel Alone...

    To really feel alone is to wake up in the morning and roll over to just feel the empty spot beside you..  The spot is often cold and the pillow is empty..  After years of sleeping with someone and being able to touch them and then suddenly nothing, it is hard.  I...
