We all know living with our SO’s have more pro’s than con’s (hopefully), but what do you miss most about living alone?
I only ask this because I’m sitting here in my underwear on the bee, watching pretty woman, eating out of a mixing bowl. haha I feel single right now.

I miss having my own bed! FI is a bed hog so I miss those lazy mornings waking up and snuggling with my doggie 🙂

I miss living in a home without an Xbox. Ahh those were the days…

@HoneyBear – I agree. Sometimes it’s nice to have the whole bed to yourself! Plus, the SO snores and keeps me awake! LOL

Drinking scotch in my underwear before bed. I have trouble sleeping and it would totally knock me out but FI gets judgy about it so I only do it on nights where the insomnia is especially bad now. Also, I only drink good single malt and he bitches at me for spending so much money on good booze if I’m just gonna go through the bottle so quickly. It’s pretty annoying honestly but it’s just one of those things I have to deal with. I do find it funny that he is judgy about drinking to fall asleep but then suggests sleeping pills as an alternative. 6 of one, half dozen of another dude.

I miss having “me” time without someone asking what I’m doing and how long I’ll be doing it and why don’t we do X, Y, or Z instead. Um because it’s “ME” time and I’m usually reading, not something we can do together now is it.

Honestly living with FI is WAY easier and better than I expected… but of course there are always little things I miss. I guess the thing I miss the most is just being totally unaccountable for some period of time. Spending 8 hrs watching a SYTTD marathon and not having to explain why i’ve not done anything productive all damn day! haha

I think the chase. I was a maneater and loved every second of it!!! Haha.
I also miss cooking just for myself. I ate so healthy as a single gal.

When I was single I lived alone for a while, so had to learn to keep busy. Now when my FI is at work or out, I feel lost! I just count down til he gets home! That’s really the only thing I miss.

Doing whatever i want on a Saturday. Now, it’s just courteous if I run all-day Saturday plans by him (like shopping!). But he’s gone this weekend so while the cat’s away, the mouse will play.
Secretly, i hope my kitties sleep in bed with me again. Even since DH got home, they’ve decided they’d rather sleep under the bed than with me.

Taking my laptop to bed in order to catch up on blogs.
Staying up late and reading.
Basically anything that involves staying up after 10 p.m. (The Guy is an early to bed and early to rise type, so the lights go off pretty early).

Oh, and yes, having my kitty sleep beside me! I miss that a lot.

I never, ever lived as a single girl… Went straight from my parents house to an apartment with my ex, and then to an apartment officially alone but was 24/7 with my now husband until we got engaged and moved in.
So the only “joys of singlehood” I can enjoy is when, like at the moment, my husband leaves for a certain period of time.
I don’t cook, only eat popcorn or takeout, drink wine and be on weddingbee without fear of him thinking it’s odd for me to be here after almost 3 months of being married.
