I Have Ruined My Sleep Schedule Just To Talk To Someone

    I befriended a woman on here.

    We've gotten to be great friends. I've talked with other members of her family using her account, too. We talk almost every day. For awhile it was for HOURS. They all live in Israel, which is 8 hours ahead of my local time. 01:00 here is 09:00 for them, for example. I...

    We used to communicate throughout the day,

    everyday, morning to night. Platonic guy friend. It made me smile and laugh at his quirky perspective, and if gave me something to look forward to; a great diversion to the daily routine. Then he stopped bringing personal info into convos, and it just kinda dropped off. Sure...

    I used to do this almost everyday,

    before. The different timezones has always been one of the culprits. So i would stay up till very late just so i could talk to him longer. Especially when i'm having the next day off. Always told myself; Just a couple of minutes more... As long as i can keep these eyes open...

    Yes I have and for him I would do it a thousand

    times over again. If this relationship was meant to be the 3 hour time zone difference doesn't matter because my love for him is much greater than my personal sleep. At night sometimes I wish you were here so that we can cuddle but you stay so many miles away. Even if that...

    Yes, many conversations on many nights.

    Well worth it when you are talking to many very interesting people from all across the globe. And it's always nice when you meet that one individual ego is in the same time zone who you can relate to and trust.

    I don't even knew if I have a sleep schedule anymore. lol. I know it's bad but if you're important to me and you message me even if it's late, I'll answer... or call... ^^,) I can bend the rules a bit for someone I care for. ;)

    but, if I start caring about you, there's no limits to the things I'll sacrifice, including my precious sleep.

    I started to talking to someone

    who lives on the other side of the world of me, and I will literally stay up till like 4 A.M. just to talk to them. Its kinda fun staying up late tho, because I wake up earlier and the earlier I wake up the more hyper I am XD

    I used to be able to talk to her all night

    every night. Now thats not really a thing. I do still stay up a bit later just incase she wakes up and wants to talk to me. But back when we talked all night. It was amazing. We didn't care that we were tired during the day. We'd just end up falling asleep a bit early the next...

    Having to stay up so late just to talk to

    someone is a mixture of emotional and hilarious moments on every episode. So I stay up late just to talk to someone because why not? I care for those people, they deserve some ears to listen to the every detail of their stories, and they introduce you to another perspective...

    I was always a sleep addict

    and slept minimum 10 hours a day. Because of it, I got a repeat twice in my college. My parents have this idea that if you don't wake up early enough then you're doomed to fail. And that's the reason they were always coaxing me about waking up early else I won't get anywhere in...

    for guys I like. They never realize it though. I always get burnt in the end. Because leads to one, half the time their never on, two the friendship never goes anywhere or it ends, three we break up. I know I shouldn't do that but I get caught up every time thinking maybe this...

    It's hard not to when you don't get to talk

    often or have a really fantastic conversation going. However, it does catch up eventually. It is rather embarrassing to have to admit that you fell asleep just because you physically couldn't stay awake despite the desire to do so.

    I used to have a good friend

    who lived in a different time zone - I was 8 hours ahead of his time. We'd chat for hours; I'd go to bed when he went to bed - and this would be at an unreasonable hour even for him! It got to a point where I had ruined my sleep schedule entirely that I slept through my alarm...
