    Alone

    How I miss falling asleep to the rhythm of your breathing, your breath on my neck, your body wrapped around mine. Some nights alone feels so lonesome.

    I Haven't Slept Alone

    in over 8 years.  I have always had someone with me.   There has been a few months there that my partner was finishing work at 4am so I HAD to go to bed alone and I hated it.  I couldn't sleep, I was cold, I was lonely!! Thankfully I get to go to bed with him...

    My Stuffed Dog Moe

    I love sleeping with my Master and prefer sleeping with him above all others. However, since we live so far apart and rarely get to sleep together I have had to get creative. I have several stuffed animals (what girl doesn't?) but my favorites is Moe. I received my buddy Moe as a...

    We All Sleep Alone

    I'm such a weird person about this, I hate sleeping alone, I really do, but at the same time, it's so hard for me to sleep next to someone else.   I spend a lot of time next to someone waking up and looking to see if they're still there, if they move I roll over to hold...

    I Just Sleep Better

    I hate sleeping alone. It takes longer for me to fall asleep, I more often than not wake up throughout the night, and I get colder faster.  I sleep much better when in the arms of my boyfriend.  I'm out like a rock, I'm warm, and I only wake up when either him or my parents...

    I Hate Sleeping Alone Too!

    It took me forever to remember even how to sleep in a bed, I slept on the sofa for so long, it didn't feel like I was sleeping alone then.  The back of the sofa at least gave the illusion of there being someone with me.   Then I bought a bed.  I knew that...

    Sleeping With Arms Around You.

    Me and my only friend, bestfriend, Harrison, sleep together. We see each other practically when we wake up, 'till we go to sleep. We have sleepover's all the time. Whenever we do, we sleep together. Well, more like I'll fall asleep on the couch with him and we would wake up on...

    After my wife left me for another man, I experience the same thing. I am very happy I treated my kitty so well. He sleeps right in her spot and it really helps.

    Spouse Works Nights

    My husband works nights. While I don't like sleeping alone, I like being able to turn on the music and lights in the morning. When we first started living together years ago, I couldn't sleep if he wasn't there. Now, I have a hard time sharing the bed now when he has 4 days off...

    Restless

    I hate sleeping alone.  I don't want to sleep with just anyone next to me though.  What I long for is my soulmate.  I long to lay in the dark, talking softly to him about all things, big and small, until one of us whispers "I'm falling asleep."  I...

    Thank God For Miracles

    The mere fact that I don't have to sleep laone is amiracle in itself. My husband was my first boyfriend and I am so grateful to climb into bed beside him, every night. I love him with all my heart and get just a sense of feeling protected by having him there.

    A Good Night Sleep After All

    I slept solidly after getting off EP and until 9 this morning. Usually husband wakes me just when he touches me or when he gets up to pee. I am a light sleeper, I guess most moms of little ones are. Anyway, I loved having the fan on full blast and not feeling guilt knowing it...

    Late, Lonely Nights

    I hate sleeping alone. I've been alone now for 26 years. For the first 17 it was by choice, and I don't think it bothered me then to spend so much time alone. I was busy raising my children. But now......oh how I hate it! I've been wanting to reverse my single condition for so...

    Desperately Seeking the Sand Man....

    I hate it when other people say that you shouldn't "NEED" your partner in your relationship. The best thing for me is snuggling up in bed together, both naked and having skin against skin. I love that he sometimes rubs my back before I fall asleep and I love to smell...

    Another Lonely Night.

    I miss having someone in my bed. Last night was rough ... I've been so lonely lately. Even the 4 nights every two weeks he's off night shift - we really don't do this anymore. I just want a guy to sleep with. One that doesn't insist on having separate blankets, and put his leg...
