I Hate Sleeping By My Self

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 6,588 People

    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.

    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. =

    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.

    Forty-one years sharing a bed.

    When she has to be away for a day or two, I just wander around the house until three AM. Neither of us do well apart. It doesn't need to be a lot of cuddle. In fact she like a warm bed and I like cool air. It is just being there that counts.

    I really really do. It's

    so lonely and it makes me sad. I don't even care if it's just for sex or love, I just need someone to sleep by.

    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...

    So I am stuck with a bit of a problem.

    I have been conditioned not to fall asleep if there is someone awake near me. Its like I can feel them there. Every sound they make keeps me up. At the same time though I absolutely hate sleeping alone. A dog, or cat, or even better someone I like make sleeping so much more...

    I love to snuggle. I have 2 pillows under my

    head, one on my right side, one on my left, and that way if I roll over it feels like someone is there. I just like the closeness.

    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.

    At least my kiddo likes sleeping in my bed.

    Gets lonely when he isn't there. I tend to not stay home when he is gone.

    bed beside me. Just to hear your steady breathing helps me fall asleep.

    I have never slept with anyone,

    but from what I can imagine, the warmth of a girl cuddling with me while I sleep would be amazing. I know sleeping alone is quite boring and well... Boring...

    I really do. Some times my cat sleeps with me

    but that's not like having someone hold you tight and kiss your head.

    I miss having someone next to me

    when I sleep. I miss the safe feeling I get when I know there's someone next to me as I sleep. I miss waking up in someone's arms, feeling that cherished feeling that goes with it.

    Spooning, I love spooning

    and I miss it so much. I love laying there with my lovers back against my chest, her whole body tucked into mine, the smell of her hair as I kiss the nape of her neck, the feel of her breast being cupped in the palm of my hand. Its funny how you can lay there by yourself and...

    Normally I have a pillow to cuddle with at

    night, as if falling asleep then was easy, now I'm in the middle of nowhere with no pillow. I have never had anyone to cuddle up to and sleep with, but I am starting to need someone more and more. I hate my life.

    The bed feels so empty and no one to snuggle with it sucks. I wish my girlfriend was home. Missing her so much tonight.

    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...

    I sleep with my back up against a wall of

    pillows. So I can have sort of feeling of safety and comfort to sleep.
