    Does anyone else have problems sleeping when their partner's away?

    The boyfriend's been gone since Sunday morning, and I haven't had a decent nights sleep since Saturday night.

    My other half travels a fair bit with work (not too much but enough) and I always, always have insomnia when he's away.

    Interestingkly, when I'm the one travelling, I sleep like a baby.

    I think it's because when he's gone, the familiar has become somewhat unfamiliar, as opposed to seleeping somewhere new/completely unfamiliar.

    Or something. icon_confused.gif

    Besides they have better beds in hotels.

    Yeah. My partner was away all week last week and it felt so strange not to have him next to me.

    I get scared when I sleep alone nowicon_redface.gif Too much familiarity between sleeping patterns now. He's been going overseas now a lot. Other than checking under the bed and whatnot, I sleep like a baby. My boyfriend talks a lot, and he moves frantically when he sleeps.

    It seems that you might sleep better while he's away without all the talking and movement.

    You got that right. But I miss being with him when he's not there-as in just hearing him breathe, his warmth, his constant attempts to suffocate me.icon_confused.gif

    Yes! My sleep has been screwed since my partner started working overnights. I tend to stay up way too late in hopes he'll get off early and then suffer the next day. I hope he goes back to a normal schedule soon!!!

    i've mostly been in relationship in which i couldn't wait to sleep alone, lol. oddly, i had a few fuckbuddies in my college days with whom i LOVED to spoon and cuddle afterwards... they were also probably way better matched to me personality and intellect-wise than my actual boyfriends, but of course being young and stupid, we never bothered to even try to make it work beyond that.

    I sleep better when I am in bed alone. When my guy is with me I want to fuck all night.

    Not having a partner, that really isn't a problem with me icon_sad.gif but if I did have one, yeah, I'd miss him like hell!

    We had a few routines…

    1. We’d each wear a t-shirt while doing errands, gym, whatever. Once it had our scent, we’d pack them in separate zip log backs to hold the scent for this away time.
    a. I would often times put his shirt on my pillow like a pillow case.
    b. He liked to wear mine while sleeping.

    2. Spritz your extra pillow with his cologne.

    In the end learning to sleep comfortably alone sucks. But the above were just some of the things we did.

    Cute!

    My current guy gets mad at me, cause he snores and I always pinch his nose haha! We have talked about it, and it's not a deal breaker. I do love cuddling with him during the night.

    Heh. I already curl up with the pillow he sleeps on when he's over here. I like the cologne idea though!

    Here. I dedicate this song (one of my faves - Joni Mitchell) to you and your man, GwgTrunks and all the other guys who miss their guys when they're away.

    -Doug



    My old man
    He's a singer in the park
    He's a walker in the rain
    He's a dancer in the dark
    We don't need no piece of paper
    From the city hall
    Keeping us tied and true
    My old man
    Keeping away my blues

    He's my sunshine in the morning
    He's my fireworks at the end of the day
    He's the warmest chord I ever heard
    Play that warm chord, play and stay baby
    We don't need no piece of paper
    From the city hall
    Keeping us tied and true
    My old man
    Keeping away my blues

    But when he's gone
    Me and them lonesome blues collide
    The bed's too big
    The frying pan's too wide

    Then he comes home
    And he takes me in his loving arms
    And he tells me all his troubles
    And he tells me all my charms
    We don't need no piece of paper
    From the city hall
    Keeping us tied and true
    No, my old man
    Keeping away my blues

    But when he's gone
    Me and them lonesome blues collide
    The bed's too big
    The frying pan's too wide

    My old man
    He's a singer in the park
    He's a walker in the rain
    He's a dancer in the dark
    We don't need no piece of paper
    From the city hall
    Keeping us tied and true
    No, my old man
    Keeping away my lonesome blues

    The one time I shared a bed with someone for three days, it was the worst sleep I've ever had. I prefer sleeping alone. It's habit and no one can jab or kick you. icon_smile.gif
