    We used to cuddle every night, and then the warmer weather came. Or his snoring got in the way of my rest. I always thought he would be near me when I fell asleep at night. It's so bad that I can't fall asleep without him. I literally have to work, clean, excercise, talk, sew...

    Moved to a new country 5 months ago

    for a job with a few others. All of them left me and I'm still here because i don't know what I want to or can do next, but I'm scared of being homeless and without money. Everyone says Im so strong and they admire me because that's how I present myself; a social butterfly that...

    I don't preferably like being alone,

    but I can function with it. I like cuddling because it soothes all the dark thoughts in my head and I can be at peace.

    All I want is to wrap you up in my arms, to feel the warmth of your skin, the heat from your breath....... To watch the steadiness of your breathing, and feel the beating of your heart as I lie next to you......

    It's no fun. It's not life.

    .. sleeping alone without a woman to cuddle with... It's so sad... at this ripe age... I have to go through this... but then it's fated I guess... I hope I can find someone... someone who will always be there... beside me...

    I was never this way

    until I got into a serious relationship. When I was single, I loved sleeping alone in "my" bed. I had a queen sized bed and it was more than enough space for me. I loved sleeping in the middle and had more than enough room to stretch out. I hated when he would stay over because...

    This is why I sleep with my dog on the bed,

    she often moves to put her head on the pillow and curl up with me ☺️ otherwise I had the cold, loneliness of an empty bed 😔

    But, I'll probably have to get used to it.

    I have a new job that will require me to do a lot of travelling. Right now, I'm in big hotel room with two big beds and one little ole' me. I'm not looking forward to going to sleep tonight.

    Sleeping in general makes me wary.

    Then ****** dreams soon chase, like the fox and the monkey around whatever bush is in that nursery rhyme.

    Miss Him.

    i've grown so accustom to being with him. i miss his arms. knowing anything could happen throughout the night, but regardless, i would be safe. i miss feeling him next to me. sleeping alone is the hardest thing i've had to conquer since the end of us, and i absolutely hate it.

    It Never Troubled Me Before

    In my Navy days, I fell asleep easily on the ship, knowing that she was safe at home.  When I traveled the country as a consultant, we almost always closed the evening with a phone call, and I slept well at (almost) every hotel, five star or fleabag. Now she's gone...

    It's Better Than Living With Regret

    Is it tough? Yes it's damn tough! I didn't want to keep on the way I was, I am looking for the last girl I will ever be with...so as many of the hard nights alone as it takes I guess. I have walked the path of regret, it felt like broken glass cutting into my bare fleshed feet...

    so sleeping alone isn't new. But it gets harder and harder every night. It's almost to the point of physical pain, my heart aches so much.

    I don't like it but it seems to make her happy. I am thinking that they is danger of us parting ways . I don't think it's healthy but I kind of started liking it too.

    I get depressed so easily at night. Maybe sleeping alone is why I have such a hard time sleeping these days. I put it off I know. The hours tick by as I avoid even trying to sleep. I know that even when I do try, sleep won't come. I'll lay there, thinking, and then I'll start to...

    Not So Much Physically Alone, But ...

    During my Navy days, there were endless nights of sleeping alone in a bunk as the ship rolled underneath and the helicopters rumbled off the deck that was my ceiling.  Not a problem, I knew that wherever she was, it was home for me and I could go there. Then there were the years...
