    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...

    Finally got to spend the night last night at

    this guy's house (not officially dating) but cuddling with him in the recliner and his bed put me out and was the best sleep I've had for a while. Being able to have someone to hug while sleeping really calms me down and I just wish I could spend my nights with him.....I've...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...
