LOL – I know what you mean… luckily, my hubby and I have one day off each a week, where the other one is working, so we get at least one day a week to ourselves..

I think everyone needs some alone time periodically, otherwise your brain and nerves don’t have time to relax and it can be very overwhelming.

Me too.  My Fiance travels for work a lot and he can be gone for 4-5 days at a time.  Sometimes I can’t stand it but other times I really enjoy having a “break” from him and being by myself.

I would love to have this, but I never really get a break. It seems like when my Boyfriend or Best Friend isn’t around, my kids are still there (and vice versa), so I don’t truly get to appreciate time that is just for me.

I love my alone time!  FI works second shift (Sun-Wed) and I work a regular 9-5 so when I get home he’s at work.  He comes home for dinner just about every night and we spend a few hours together before he has to go back.  I love him, but I also love it when he goes back to work lol!  It’s the perfect time for me to relax with the puppy before getting ready for bed.  We spend Thursday and Friday nights together and all day Saturday, so when Sunday rolls around and he has to go to work I’m ready for me time Smile.

I don’t crave it that often, but when I’m alone in our apartment when the hubs is away, I totally relish in it. I put on my sweats, get a pint of ice cream, get take-out and rent girly movies that I would be ashamed to tell my husband I watched. I love those nights, and I think it’s totally normal to want/need them.

I hear ya, Steph. Of course, I can’t wait to be with Fiance but I do need some alone time too. Being on my own without having someone next to me is one of the things that I am going to miss about being single. I like hanging out by myself.  Time to read or watch tv or blog.  I hope that we get a good balance of together time and alone time in our marriage.

You are so not alone on this! During football season I get Sundays to myself, which is nice, but some nights during the week (especially after a rough day at work) I wish I could just have a few hours to myself and just do whatever.

I love being all by myself. I think I need it more than the average person too. My fiance tends to work on the weekends so I love staying home on Saturdays and just doing my thing. I’ve always been a homebody too so I spend lots of time at home with or without the guy.

Fiance goes to his class for his Masters Degree once a week- so nice.

YES!!! And my Fiance is kinda anti-social, so when his friends call him to do something, I’m like: “Gooooo!!!! I can take care of myself!!” But he doesn’t want to. Hahaha. But those nights that he has to work late, I catch up on all the TV that I’ve been collecting on the DVR. I lived alone for 2 1/2 years before I moved in with Fiance, and sometimes I just miss it. Leaving my plates out for days. Sitting on the couch in my bathrobe. Law & Order marathons. Those were the days.

I LOVE alone time. I’m all about it. In my free time I like to lock myself in my room or go outside to commune with nature, haha. Thank goodness MinMan likes plenty of space too!
