    I Wish I Wouldn't

    I feel so torn between wanting to sleep next to someone and hating it. When I'm alone I often imagine someone lying next to me and long for someone who holds me but always when I have someone lying next to me who puts his arm around me I get panicky and run. Hate it.

    I don't get why people are

    so big on sleeping in the same bed. A lot of little compromises must always be made in a relationship, but why compromise on a good night's sleep in your own bed, with your own choice of bed, blankets, pillows, etc? A little snuggle time is great, but then get outta my bed; I...

    I dislike being touched

    and have a difficult time relaxing enough to sleep when someone is sleeping beside me, so I prefer sleeping in my own bed by myself. The best part? I get all of the covers to myself! 😋
