I Hate Sleeping By My Self

    I am a lesbian and I have been in a serious

    relationship for four years. I met my fiancé when I was 19 and a sophomore in college. She was my first, sleeping and falling in love with a woman. She is five years older than me, and her being older and out of college, turned me on! However, I feel as if I have lived a...

    I've been married for 11 years

    and the last 5 yrs we haven't slept in the same bed. It started because he snores really loud and just stayed that way. It makes me feel even lonelier. I haven't cuddled in a long time. It makes me sad.

    With the death of my Husband my bed is a lonely

    place. I miss the security of a man to protect me through the night. I miss the answer to my desires no longer just in reach.

    after spending the night at a guy friends house,

    sleeping in my bed by myself just isn't the same. I miss the feel of his warm body pressed against my back, his arms wrapped around me, lip on my neck. best feeling in the world, so it sucks when sleeping alone.

    I hate sleeping without feeling anyone beside

    me. I need some sort of body contact to fall asleep...I actually don't mind the coldness it's sometimes refreshing at night when I get too warm I just need to hear someone breathing next to me feel the kisses in my shoulder feel the warmth and know that someone is there...it's...

    The bed is cold and empty.

    It's never found the warmth that lasts. It does not hold the dreams of youth...You made sure of that.

    I was raised with a family bed.

    I slept with my parents from a very early age. i can't not remember sleeping in the same bed with them. When I hit puberty they offered me the option of my own room and bed but I said no. I went away to college and I share a room with three other guys. We all sleep in separate...

    After spending the night with my boyfriend,

    sleeping alone feels empty and sad. After that experience, I wish he was here with me every night. Close together, warmth, listening to his heart beat. Every little thing was special and I will never forget these small but memorable moments❤️

    I'm young. I'm always by myself,

    I need someone. Some one to sleep with, not in a sexual way but as in a cuddling way. Someone to cuddle with and just have that amazing feeling that hen you wake up some one you love dearly is with you every night an will always be by your side.

    One Is The Loneliest Number.

    That song comes to mind when I look at my bed. It has become the loneliest place in my home. It is so difficult to adjust to sleeping alone after being in a long term live in relationship. For me anyways. I started by falling asleep on the couch watching t.v. Then I just brought...

    What I hate even more is waking up in the

    middle of the night...alone. Some might think how lucky I am....no snoring partner that steals the covers, but that also means I have no one to gently pull me back into their arms, kiss my forehead and whisper "go back to sleep, baby"

    Literally the only thing I miss about my ex is

    having someone next to me every night. I share my bed with my two dogs (olympic queen and I still fight for a foot of bed), but it's not the same as being held while I sleep. I really miss it. =
