    Sort Of.

    I used to be the first thing he'd see when he woke up in the morning. In the event that I was awake before him, I'd often just lie there and watch him slumber, until eventually those blue eyes would open and brighten at the fact that I was still there with him. We'd smile and...

    I uaually have my son sleep with me or my guy when I sleep at his house. It is so comforting to wake up beside someone else and see their first smile of the day.

    I Love Lacing My Legs In His

    Spooning next to him, feeling his breath in my ear, his hand rubbing my thigh .... then it's time to wake up.    Sleeping alone sucks.

    I wish I could just pass out at a friend's house just so I won't have to go home and be alone.

    It is one of those mornings

    where I wish I was laying next to a man. I woke up in need of a man's touch and his tongue between my legs.

    Waking Up

    The thing is...I have prospects. I used to have friends sleep over just so I could cuddle with them through the night. But now, when really in love...and I can't even do anything about it. Never cuddled from the one you want. But hey, I've still got a stuffed bear, i guess. lol...

    It's much better with an arm around me,

    holding me close, and maybe a hand that's roaming around. Alone sucks :(

    I don't mind sleeping alone,

    but waking up on these cool mornings is no fun without an arm around me.

    It Feels So Lonely

    Even though I'm a married woman, sometimes I go to sleep alone and wake up alone. My husband is an aspiring rapper/producer/author, so his aspirations sometimes take up a lot of the time that we should have as a couple. Even though I tell him about it, he feels as though I don't...

    I sure hate waking up alone.

    I have a solution to fix that problem. I should never go to bed alone.

    But Not As Much As I

                          - Hate going to bed alone. It was one of the hardest things to get use to when my ex left. In fact, I'm still not use to it, I'm just dealing with it. It...

    Sometimes It's Ok.

    Some days, I'm happy about waking up alone. It means I still have my independence. It means my life doesn't depend on someone else's. But on the other hand, I wish there was someone to wake me up with a hug and a kiss. Someone to tell me he loved me when I woke up. Someone to...

    Is A Significant Part Of My Depression

    I hate waking up alone. Probably because I also hate going to bed alone and sleeping alone too. But waking up alone is among the worst. Some of how I feel is about missing sex of course, but sex is only important as a connection to the bigger things it signifies, intimacy...

    07/04/2016 - Sleeping alone.

    Waking up alone. Both suck. But is it any better than sleeping next to someone who feels like a stranger? I love waking up and falling asleep next to someone I care for I just don't think they've felt the same way I have in the past. In the beginning maybe they did but...

    I hate sleeping alone and I hate waking up alone and I hate that the ride side of my bed is now always empty and not just a couple of nights a week. The left side is now always cold :(
