    The only reason I hug my pillow

    while sleeping, is because I imagine it's you. I hate how we can't be together right now, it just keeps getting harder not being with you. I want to hold you tight and have you in my arms, I want to kiss those beautiful lips of yours but we have wait. But it's not long now, just...

    My pillow makes up the space next to me.

    I could have a hot steamy box of pepperoni but sadly no. So the pillow it is 🙌😌😂

    .. I hug the corner of my sheets.

    I hug the blanket. I hug a stuffed animal if available. I even "hug" myself if I sleep on my side. I'll extend my arm from the side that I'm laying on in front of me and to the opposite side of my body hugging my waist. I hug my lover if I have one. I hug to sleep. It's how I...

    I have done it since I first got in bet with a

    girl. I do it when I miss the presence of a woman in bed with me, which happens more often that I'd like to admit :$

    One night when I was younger I couldn't get to

    sleep. Everybody was just so mean and I didn't get it. That night was the first time I hugged my pillow. Ever since I usually fall asleep hugging my pillow. It also helps, with the crying.

    yeah...sometimes you have to.

    though just a pale simulation of someone you wish was there, it comforts a little. I hold it close as I feel the need to hold somone who means so much to me.. sometimes I hug so tight I wake with sore arms and a feeling of sadness when I find its only my pillow instead of a...

    It's the cuddle buddy you can always expect to

    be there when you hit the hay. And the one that'll never hurt or shun you.

    I don't actually hug my pillow,

    I have a huge comforter and I fold it between my legs and hug the top part. My ideal night is sleeping on my 600 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets in my lace panties with baby powder sprinkled on the sheets. The soft scent is so soothing.

    I always feel so lonely

    and crave affection but I have nobody. whenever I get sad, lonely or tired, I just hug my pillow. I sleep with 3 pillows, 2 for my head and one to cuddle. it's so comfy, it's like hugging a person. hopefully one day I'll find someone to replace my pillow.

    I think it's a natural thing

    for most people to crave to be with someone while they are at their weakest state, sleep. So when no one is there, we curl up to whatever feels like another human body. That's why we hug our pillows I think.

    Every one who feels insecure will hold on to a

    anything that gives him hope. Babies thumb sucking, holding baby doll, are few such samples. It's nothing unusual. Things will change as you grow and get some company and confedence.

    It's not the way you would hug a toy In bed

    it's just for some reason I love to wrap my arms and legs round my pillow at night and sleep like that it makes me feel happy like I'm in a really long hug but it's so soft and warm and makes me feel save it's weird but I love doing it 😄
