Did you stay up late beforehand?  Or is this a post-LDR phenomenon?

aww, bunny! πŸ™

nighttime IS super hard! Because during the day you’ve got work/school, friends, all sorts of fun stuff that confidently enjoy even if he’s not there, but at night… it just gets lonely. I understand!!!

I understand, too. πŸ™ It is really hard and the nights are the worst.

Hubs used to talk to me until I would fall asleep on nights I was having a really hard time. Kind of pathetic I know, but it helped me. I also stole one of his dirty t-shirts. It smelled like him.

 Nights were the worst for me too…I missed being dated, being cuddly.

I like Miss Lily’s advice…borrow his clothes next time you see him and fall asleep talking on the phone. 

I usually fell asleep thinking of what our nights would be like when the LDR is over!

I totally have this problem too.  When I’m visiting him, even if he doesn’t come to bed with me right away, he cues me to turn off the tv/whatever and go to bed when I’m getting tired.  On my own, I’ll stay up forever doing absolutely nothing, even when I’m exhausted!

I had that problem, especially since he was 3 hours ahead of me.  He would go to sleep very late but I was still sometimes the last one up and wasnt able to talk to him because he was already asleep.  OR he would be out on the weekend and I would actually want to go to sleep but couldnt because I knew he was still out and waiting for his call before bed πŸ™

Oh man, it is WEIRD for me have him in the bed the whole time. No more down comforter for us–“it’s too hot”.

Also, my cats haven’t slept with me since he’s been home. I miss their furriness. And they don’t snore as much as he does…=]

[email protected] ejs!  I’m still getting used to sharing the bed with Mr. Doxie, too!  We were sharing a full-sized bed, and it was missserable.  It was hot, and there just wasn’t enough room for the both of us and our furbabies.  We upgraded to a Cal King and it’s like Heaven!  (Thanks to my dad for the birthday/Christmas gift : )

I always hated nighttime, too, when we were still long distance.  He was a nightowl and I had to sleep for work the next morning; I always felt bad leaving him on Skype!

Bed-sharing was probably the biggest adjustment when Fiance and I were finally in the same city.  My full bed is a bit, um, cramped with two people, but we’re sharing a studio.

I refuse to relinquish the down comforter.  If this means we sleep with the windows open all winter, so be it.

aww, i know how that goes. i typically have a bigger issue of sleeping alone whenever i return from a trip with him. but now i sleep with one of his shirts next to me so it kind of helps ease the lonliness a bit.

though it is nice to wake up and not have to extricate myself from his arms so i can go to the bathroom. i also joke about his “death grip” he has when we’re together. sometimes it’s like i need to have the jaws of life in the nightstand!
