    And Maybe That'S Good

    I sleep on a regulation twin sized bed. I was in my apartment about three weeks when I rolled over too far and fell on the floor. I woke up when I fell. Don't know if I was dreaming or what...the only thing I hurt when I landed was I smacked my face on the low bedside table and...

    Not That I Want To!

    This is just the way things are. No boyfriend, so I sleep alone. And even with a boyfriend (those few times with horrible people), they never wanted me to stay over. So, still. I wonder what it's like to be able to sleep next to someone and know that I am not alone. I've never...

    For The Time Being

    Who knows? I might be sleeping alone for the rest of my life. I think this means I've reached my final phase of acceptance.

    My Husband And I Sleep In Seperate Bedrooms. And I Love It!

     We sleep alone because my husband snores and I am an only child so I never had to share a bed with anyone. I love my sleep and sleeping alone.

    I Can't Touch Her

    I've been married 35 years, and sex has NEVER been important for my wife.  Then one night in June of last year, while laying in bed next to her, I try to be intimate, and she looks me in the face and says, 'never touch me again, ever'.  Knowing that the marriage was...

    For Now

    I am working on not sleeping alone.  It's OK. I actually sleep better alone when I sleep. I have a twin bead, and it's OK.  Not fantastic, but OK.  I don't sleep with a teddy bear, or anything like that, but I do love lots of pillows...

    I'm grateful to have.

    ..a very small bed. It fits me. No one will ever be able to share it with me but that doesn't matter because I'll never have anyone to share it with in the first place. Tired of sleeping alone EVERY NIGHT.

    It's going to be this way

    for a very long time. I have a big bed. Occasionally, when I had a boyfriend last year, he would sleep with me. He looked so good in my bed. It's the only time I would really sleep in but we didn't do much sleeping. I loved the time that we spent most of the morning and into the...

    But sometimes it would be nice to have company.

    Someone to snuggle against. And maybe do some other activities
