I have been sleep by myself for 24 years! Haha... And i am very comfortable with that. Now that i am married, all the sudden, i have to share the bed with another person, i think i am talking about my husband, but it's kind of hard for me to fall asleep at first. But now, i can't fall asleep if he is not there!Strange, huh? What about you?

I can sleep alone, but at the same time I can't. While I share a bed with my partner, its not uncommon for me to fall asleep on the couch. However, for that to happen, George has to be home. Somewhere where I know he's safe. The one time I was without him, I had a huge panic attack and was going stir crazy literally. When everyone's safe is when I relax and sleep.

it's completely natural. you're already get used to have someone besides you when you sleep so it needs a little adaption again to sleep alone again. i think i'll feel the same way with you in that kind of situation. :)

I have been sleeping with other people in my room for my whole life. For instance, I shared a room with my brothers for a while. Now we got a bigger house and my older brother has our old place so I got my own room. Now I find it a bit harder to fall asleep. I usually watch movies on my ipod to fall asleep :)

Yeah I guess I am more like you. For the last 10 years single I was happy sleeping on my own bed without sharing it with anyone. But when you get married all of a sudden you now have this partner to be with. After being with her for 9 years I guess it would be hard for me to sleep alone again. I observed that when we go out on company outings where I am all alone sleeping. I always long to sleeping with my wife and it keeps me hard to sleep when I am alone in bed.

I have been sleeping all alone in my entire life except when i was very young.I am not married and will never be since i am a senior citizen therefore i am destined to sleep alone in my bed all by myself.Since this has been my condition for a very long time i am used to it and even if something happens i will still not like to share my bed but prefer to sleep all by myself.lol.
