    Because...

    It's like I need to have someone there with me in the darkness protecting me from the creatures of the night. Wanting to be in someone's caring and loving embrace. But alas I do not have what I wish I did, and thus have to make the best out of what I do.

    YASSS! I sleep on two!

    NO! Let's say 4! I sleep in the middle so my head is resting on all 4 pillows :) - I can't sleep on flat pillows! :( they have to be comfy and soft! And I have two more on the side so if I roll over when I'm sleeping I can hug them. :D I'd say the pillow is my boyfriend. :D...

    The only reason people do this is

    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.

    Afternoon naps are my favorite.

    Breeze coming through the window. Silk sheets. My piece of heaven.

    I miss sleepy cuddles,

    feeling that intense warmth as he slides his body up against mine in bed and wraps his arms around me. Best feeling in the world! Mmmm I need some naked cuddles :)

    My Pillow

    It's always been there for me when I felt lonely and worthless. I may have shed tears on it but when that would be over i would always wake up happy to be holding it in my arms. :)

    I have two pillows, I always had.

    When I was a kid I wouldnt hug teddy bears because the following morning they were at the other side of the room. So I thought my pillows were alive and I was talking to them sometimes, and I was kissing them goodnight.

    Don't you find that by hugging your pillow you

    suddenly feel even more snuggled in your bed than if you just lie there? I do. And i can't get to sleep without hugging my pillow. I think it is because when I was a child I'd sleep with a blanket that I'd hug. After all if I don't hug my pillow I hug my duvet...

    I used to have a rolled up fluffy blanket I

    used to cuddle at night, but that has recently been replaced with a 5ft bolster pillow. I sleep so much better with my arms wrapped round it and the lower part of it trapped between my legs. Heaven!

    When i was young i didn't hug my pillow.

    I didn't have a soft cuddly teddy bear or any other stuffed animal with me. But ever since i got lonely again few years ago, i started hugging my pillows when i sleep. And i won't let go till i wake up. I even named my pillows. Am i going crazy?

    Seems like a girly thing to do,

    but I'm a man and I hug my damn pillow, and I'm ******* proud of it! I feel like I always gotta hold onto something in my sleep, probably has something to do with anxiety or something.

    to be able to sleep at night. Like any child's blanket, I need to hug my pillow. My bed is in queen size and I have like 6 pillows on my bed. LOL I love pillows! And I know this can be extremely creepy to someone but if I'm in love with someone, sometimes I would pretend the...

    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.

    .. 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...

    It's All I Got

    I don't have anyone to hug and haven't for a while now. I just kind of got used to hugging my pillow as I fell asleep. It sucks, I ain't gonna lie to you, I hate it.

    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...

    My pillow would prolly say, "I know you like sleeping on the cold side, but you seriously have to stop flipping me over countless times throughout the night."
