Do you enjoy the solitude, or dread being by yourself?
Because of my husband’s job, he doesn’t sleep at home everynight. Some days I don’t mind it and enjoy the me time, other nights I really miss him and wish he was here. Also, a few weeks ago, someone tried to break into our house a bit after we went to bed. Of course, I was still awake (since I can never sleep) and he was already out cold. We had the cops come and they confirmed there have been a good number of break-ins in our area lately, but they happen during the day. They also arrested someone who lives on our street, but they’ve still been happening. So, they think it was someone looking in our in-door mailbox to see what we have. It turned out well in the end becaues no one got in, but I sure was glad he was here that night!
Overall, though, I don’t mind being home alone. How about the rest of you?

First off, how scary to have had a break in! I’m glad you’re okay and please, always make sure you have a phone with a full charge and at the very least a Louisville slugger in the room with you just for peace of mind.
My guy travels fairly regulary for work. He’s usually gone for about a week at a shot but sometimes it’s two. I’ve found that when he’s gone for one week I’m fine but when it goes to two I have trouble. I’m a pretty independent person and I have three kids so there’s always something to do and it’s not that I’m lonely precisely… But the fact is I miss him!
I’ve found that talking twice a day on the phone and emailing or IMing regulary cuts down on the blues and planning a date for the day after his return makes it all bearable. Our favorite "dates" are a good home cooked meal and an evening together on the couch watching TV or a movie (thank goodness for my parents who take the kids regulary on the weekends and early bedtimes on school nights!).

oh my gosh how heart stopping scary! thank goodness you’re alright.
I’m home alone ALOT. Unfortunately my hubby and I still have to live apart, its very difficult but we know we will be able to be under the same roof soon. Being 5 hours away stinks though. I have a lot of nightmares and when I wake up I wish he was here to just sort of bring me back to reality…. (sigh)

Glad you’re both safe & that nothing happened past the attempt. Scary, though!
I LOVE being alone. I love being with Mr. Q as well, so we just find a balance between the two. It works quite nicely

Wow so scary to have someone violate your house like that! FI and I spend every night together and I honestly couldn’t have it any other way. I can’t sleep without him there, and I don’t like being alone at night. I usually get home from work a couple hours before him, so that gives me the me time that I need. Also, he works most Saturdays so I get them to myself, which I usually spend hanging out with friends and family. But I also have a lot of school stuff that I do at night, so during the week sometimes I don’t see him til 9 or 10 at night. I feel like the balance we have works, and if there is ever a time either of us needs some alone time, alls we have to do is ask

Yikes! I’m so glad you’re OK!
I LOVE being home alone. Always have. I’m so rarely alone, it gives me a chance to just enjoy the quiet.

I love being alone. For example, the Mr. is away on his bachelor party weekend and I couldn’t wait for him to go and give me the house all to myself!
Lillindy, your story is so scary, because I like being in the house alone, but find it really scary to sleep alone. This makes me so mad at myself sometimes, a grown woman afraid of the dark, but ever since we moved in together it’s been hard for me to sleep by myself.

Yeah, Mr Corn is a work traveller so he isn’t here from Mon-Thurs…but it has been that way for most of our relationship, save for a few months here and there when he has been working in town. I miss him, but we talk every night. Now that I am preggers, I actually like having more room in the bed 🙂
We ended up getting an alarm system for our house…mostly because we live in an urban area that does see a small amount of random crime. But it definitely gives me peace of mind for when he isn’t here.

I would have been totally freaked out by the attempted break in. I had someone try to climb in my bathroom window once when I was home. I still sometimes flash back to that.
As for being alone though, I love it. We were long distance for 2 years, so I really fully developed a love for alone time because I had to. I have little alone rituals and treats that make it fun. I still miss him ridiculously when he’s gone, especially if its more than 1 or 2 nights, but I enjoy my time alone as well.
